Amazeballs! Curious whether you can run a 52.5 mm stroke shock to bump rear up to 126. Looks like that would go nicely w/ the 150 up front. Rad bike.

Cheers. Hadn't thought about it but would it would balance things out. Knew I was going with the X2 and they just released the 210x50 and they don't offer it in a 52.5mm.

only 50 and 55 available in aftermarket. but you can always have a different travel spacer installed, shock just needs to be torn apart to install it.

right you are for the X2. For anyone who doesn't already have an awesome shock on their smug you can get a 210 x 52.5 DPX-2 (for Fuel EX) from a couple online retailers but they're pricey, over $500. Or the Topaz comes in 52.5 too. From other threads it sounds like seatstay bridge / seat tube clearance at full compression is already tight with the stock 50mm shock so even the minimal increase to 52.5 could be a no go. I'd like to hear if anyone's made it work.

got a killer deal on the X2 so wasn't considering any other options and I can verify that the seatstay bridge clearance is scary close. Only downside to smug
