I moved my bronson to the high setting. .3 degrees difference at HTA and SA (non detectable) 4mm hight on bb (definitely less pedal strikes). When I get a new shock with a climb switch I’ll set it back to low as majority of low bb issues were climbing.

i move my bike into the High position sometimes but its only if im doing more of a cross country-esque ride. honestly i could care less about options like that though, if i could afford it id just have a dedicated xc bike

Additional ways to keep the bike higher in its travel:

• Higher spring rate with lower compression ratio. If you're using an air shock, you can raise the pressure a little and remove a volume reducer (if present). This can maintain the same total support from the spring (area under the spring force-displacement curve) with a higher average ride height.

• More low-speed compression damping.

While i still rode a banshee i used adjustable dropouts (10mm of BB adjustment and 1 degree of HA/SA) fairly regularly to raise - drop BB and adjust SA. Most of the time, bike was as low/slack as possible, but for long pedalling in the Apls i always switched to high/steeper position

I run my Rallon in the low setting for my local trails, but switch to the lower setting for rowdier riding. It doesn't pedal quite as well, but feels nicer on the steeps.

Front rotor too small, look at that cassette on the back then back to rotor, just looks wrong. But who f*cking cares?

You're right, the rotor just ruins it all for me Wink

Pretty impressive.. These things dont matter so much to me at 5'10".. but if you were 6'2" I could see that being very important
