So I got my 09 Aline from a non-DH/freeride oriented shop because they were selling it cheap.

They knew nothing about the bike except it's a downhill bike from Norco (they are not my LBS)

So the travel is adjustable which setting (top or bottom) is the 8 inch setting?

and I was given an extra set for drop outs they don't appear to be any different and they have no markings on them. Are they a spare or do they effect the geometry?

thanks for the help
