A few riders in my part of the world have been very very happy with going the mullet route on their Sanctions using a 170mm 29er fork (reduced offset), 40mm stem (instead of 35mm or 50mm), and adding some more high speed compression to the rear shock.

Maybe worth a try for some of you.

I always considered mulleting my former Sanction but I think it would be a problem with the current crop of high A2C forks. The best thing, IMO, would be to source out a new or 1 season used '19-'20 fox 36 grip 2 and use that as the current lyrics, zebs and fox 38 are high in the sky with their A2C. Then again, maybe a type B air shaft for a lyrik could do the trick, as it really sits at least 10mm lower in its travel then it is advertised.

One thing I do not understand is the stem length. That's a thing mostly related with rider preference, riding style, cockpit size(FC, ett, reach, stack) and so on. Why a mullet Sanction would work better with a 40mm stem?

cheers,
E.

Hi, i have done on my decreasing the travel from 180 to 160, and then i instelled a 45 or 50 mm stem! i'm considering the idea of offset bushing!

I had an M Sanction with a 50mm stem and 170 lyrik... then an L Sanction with offset bushing, 40mm stem and 180mm fox 36. Worked a treat!, Felt absolutely great sitting a little lower to the ground.

Any issues with your dogbone? I've just made a new Dogbone linkage upgrade made with four sealed bearings and inox steel aisi 316 and aluminium spacers! It works very well! I tested it in some rough conditions and no problems! Message me for any Info!

I would not use steel for the dogbone it is possible that you damage the frame which is aluminium but the bearings seem to be a good choice.....

Yes i'd considered this problem! The steel don't touch the frame thank's to the spacers which are aluminium. The spacers also are firm. There are any move against the frame!
I use this dogbone since november 2/3 times a week and no problems!
Like the original one it's advised disassembly and clean it after very muddy ride! Specially if the mud it's very liquid
