So I understand the front travel from the fork specifications is 140/120/100 mm, but what spec in there tells me the rear travel ?

It's confusing. I'm not sure that's what it is. Check this one out. Where on the specs does it say it is six inches of travel ?

Frame: 150 mm travel. Not trying to be a wise *****, but I dont see what your getting at. 150 mm equals about 5.9"

Yeah, hopefully in a few years I'll have the budget for one of them. As for now I'm like a kid in a Porsche dealer.
