Saw this on MTB-Mag.com. Allows you to install a standard eyelet rear shock on your Enduro.

Yeah, that's awesome.

Had a buddy email them a bit ago, they're doing one up for his Stumpjumper.

He's stoked about not having to run the proprietary Foxturd on it anymore.

Monarch's and STX22's are already available in direct mount so I really don't get what the fuss is about.

Maybe they can start making custom length direct mount clevis mounts? Would allow for a bunch of different geo mods.

Problem is the mount is different for 2010-2012 and 2013+ Enduros. For the former, only choice is either RP23 or (if you can get hold of one) DHX RC2.

Bikeyoke is a new option for here, but there is the problem of stroke length. Enduros run 216x54, So either run a 200x51 with the bikeyoke and loose some travel or try to limit stroke lenght on a 200x57.

Anyone tried to limit stroke length on Monarch RC3? Or on a coil shock for that matter?

And CCDBAs too.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Those coil shock on 2010~2012 enduro has plastic puck to limit the travel.
If you remove the puck it's 8.5x2.5. You can make one yourself to limit the stroke to 2.125

Think it should be the same for air shock, physically measure the shock i2i and stroke. Very likely to have a puck inside to limit the travel
