    I imagine there are few dhillers here. So can you answer me this. Is there a limit to how high of a drop off i should take with only 4.5" of rear wheel travel? I know the higher the drop is, the rear shock just starts hittin the bottom out bumper and i dont see how that can be bad, but i've taken some 8 footers, and they haven't been too bad but i dont want to wreck my bike on a 15 footer i've wanted to try(if i have the guts). Thx for reading!

    No bad, we don't bring up 6 year old threads.

    Mak 90 : do a search. If you don't find what'cha lookin for, come back to this thread. Hope you're not doing 8 footers to flat w/o trials skills. (of which I have none)
