    Covert with 200mm shock?

    Hi!

    I just wander if I could put 200mm shock on my Covert.
    With offset mounting hardware (-6mm) it would be 4mm too long, so shouldn't be too much issue I think.
    Did anyone try this?

    you will alter the geo for sure, it would not be a lot, but going in the wrong direction. and if the stroke is longer the rear wheel could contact the frame..all in not a good deal.

    I just can try out my friends CCDB, but I will leave it in this situation.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi,

    just changed as you suggested. Resulting in roughly 170 mm rear travel and little strange geometry. Replacing the 160 mm fork with a 180 mm, all back to normal with a little higher BB, but not much maybe a cm, as i ride with more sag now, pretty plush.

    could call it a super enduro now.

    Hi, thats what i like with transition, they always seem to have some additional room for going slightly off the initial build without becoming strange or wobby.

    Next step is cnc'ing a new rocker giving more travel out of a stock shock. Some like 165 or so, resulting in a pretty slack head angle. Some where round 65 degrees. Coverting the covert in a mini downhiller.
