What's whacked out about just 2:1?

And Hick: long-stroke shocks seem to be what Charlie Curnutt specializes in - - the way he has the room, I suppose, to pack in all that damping goodness inside ;.

Leverage ratio not whack, but there are better ways to implement a 2:1 ratio than a long stroke shock.

My guess: it's a regular size shock but the wheels are only 6 inches.
