In the post your rides thread a couple of people questioned my rear susp. setup and how it works. I took a couple of pics so that you could get an idea of how it is mounted. The middle of the shock is mounted to the frame and the rear triangle pushes on the body of the shock. It works wonderfully, and gives you about 3 inches of travel. As a package this makes a very fast xc bike that climbs very well and is very light.
