I wondered if anyone had experience of replacing the rear shock and forks on the jetstream P8?
I have found the suspension lacking in suppleness to say the least, and a softer setup at both ends may result in better handling.
The frame seems really well made and seems worth re-fitting. Plus, I've just bought an impulse P24 to cannablise for the dual drive transmission.
The main problem seems to be the standard rear shock length of 125mm, and the aftermarket minimum shock size of 165mm. Thats going to change the head angle a bit! Maybe I can adjust the sag in the new shock to compensate.
For the front end, a different fork may yield better results and allow a disc brake / 100mm front hub. http://www.german-a.de/shop/
What do you think?
