    5.1 Spot rockers on Sultan?

    I see someone is selling 5.1 Spot rockers and is saying they will work on the Sultan. Is this true? Is it a good upgrade or a waste of money?

    It's an elaborate scheme to get you to part with $50. Don't bother inquiring here, because everyone else is in on it.

    Hopefully someone else will chime in if they do have direct experience with the 5.1's, but most people ended up putting on the 5.5's, since that's what Turner was selling at the time and they are somewhat sexier/stiffer, so you may want to research the use of those on a Sultan.

    The 5.1's will offer most of the same characteristics, including geometry, but with a slightly lower leverage ratio and possibly a bit more ramp up at the end. I ran them on my Sultan for a few rides prior to getting the 5.5's, and even though I got full travel on the RP23 I never felt it bottom, even at really low pressures.
