    can I adjust the rear travel on my Fantom DS Comp

    I've had my bike for a couple weeks and just wonder if there are adjustments for the rear end, I just found this forum and really like all the info so far, I had a Motobecane road bike for 30+ yrs and just gave it away a few months before buying this new one.. I wasn't riding it, I had a KHS MB I was road riding..and a no name MB before that, Great Forum here..

    I guess I'll try to answer my own question

    I see three holes in the front of the 4 bar rocker, mine came in the middle, now which way do I go for more travel??? I'll try them and see...damn I'm getting more travel, thats good news for me..LOL!!!

    The hole furthest away from the seet(or closest to the handle bars) is for the most amount of travel!!!

    Thank you but it doen't seem to be 5 inches, I've let all the air out of the shock and measured from the bottom of the seat and it's not even 4 inches??? but It seems to be longer.. Thanks for the answer..

    I'm measuring from the floor to the bottom of the seat and in the rear closest to the tire is just over 4 inches so that is the longest travel I can find..thanks for the help

    highdelll is absolutely correct. You'll want to put it in the hole furthest from the handlebars. (see pic)

    ...so much fail.

    You want the hole closest to the rear of the bike, as shown above.
