Pretty sure this is the new Sentinel. Those shock lengths are for Trunnion mount shocks. Current Sentinel is 140 mm. Think 140mm.....trail duty, 150mm bike park enduro days.

The question is how do they achieve the two different travel lengths? Do you gotta switch out the shock? 205mm x 62.5mm for 150mm travel and 205mm x 57.5 for 140mm travel? Maybe you can throw a large bottom out bumper in there to reduce the travel? Assuming its a coil shock.

The sticker indicates that the travel is adjusted by changing the stroke length on the shock itself. Some shocks change the stroke length by swapping out a spacer for all models of a given eye to eye length, others require more work.

A question I'd have is what does the motion ratio look like between 150 vs 140 setups? Unless there's a flip chip in there somewhere, the 150mm version is going to be inherently more progressive.

Someone mentioned elsewhere they will give the choice between the 62.5 or 57.5 shock when you buy it. If thats the case then your stuck with one travel unless you get the other shock.

My GG Shred Dogg all you have to do is move one bolt and you got 130mm very firm travel for trail, and 140mm very plush travel for gnarly days. I cant help to think that Transition wouldn't miss the mark on this but we'll find out soon enough.

My new complete custom build. Went for as many “local” parts as possible (Chromag, OneUp, PNW and of course Transition)

@chriswells

What are your thoughts on those Phase 30 wheels?

I love them. I’ve beaten the snot out of my other pair on my Chromag and they’ve stayed perfectly true for 18 months, not even a re-tension. This is after going through 3 different cracked rims the year before.

Highly recommended. And the BA30 is even stronger, albeit slightly heavier.
