Custom Shock Mounting and Custom Travel

Brand new for 2020, we’re now able to offer custom travel options on Swoops, Murmurs and Twists.

By adjusting the position of the shock-mount to allow the use of different stroke shocks, we’re able to offer longer or shorter travel versions of our bikes. There are two options for how to achieve this:

1) Using a fixed shock mount but with the position set for a specific length of shock.  For example on a Swoop, changing from a 230mm length shock with 65mm stroke, to a 210mm length shock with 55mm stroke, reduces travel from 162mm to 140mm.

2) Using an adjustable shock mount, the same changes as for the fixed mount.  But there’s +/-10mm (with 2mm resolution) of adjustment from the nominal position.  This allows different shock lengths to be run on the same bike.  But also allows small geometry variations, i.e. you can drop BB and slacken head angle.  +/-10mm adjustment gives more useable range than anyone will ever need to adjust geometry, a great option for fettlers!

This option is available on all new bikes and can be selected at the purchase.
