    Quick Banshee Scream question

    Which hole on the rocker arm is for the 8" setting? The one closest to the seat tube or the forward most one?

    Thanks all

    closest to the seat tube

    if you look at it...if it was in the furthest position it would move less

    As an improvement over SMT's decidedly uneloquent descriton, here's how I put it to someone on our local forum. We were talking about a different bike, but whatever. Same linkage, same principles.

That means that the leverage ratio must change in order for the travel to change. With the shock mounted in the position closer to the fulcrum of the swingarm, the swingarm has a greater mechanical advantage over the shock when it does with the shock mounted farther out. This means that the leverage ratio is higher, and therefore there is more rear wheel travel.


    If that dosn't do it for you, try this: when the rear end is bottomed out, the swing arm is at a pretty steep angle. The orientation of the shock mounting holes makes the inner one higher than the other two when the shock is fully compressed. Since the distance between the lower shock mount and the upper one must be the same in any travel setting, if the shock is mounted farther out on the swingarm, then the swingarm will be unable to extend down as far, so the frame will get less travel.
