I'm 183cm, with rather long legs and short torso. I guess the 19" is similar to an size L, and should be fitting?

Yes the 19 should be good. I'm 196 and the XL fits fine.

Hi folks, only just Found this thread. I've a 2017 9.0 that I picked up in the sales. Changed from the xt 2x11 to sram eagle GX, put Hunt Enduro Wide wheels on, and most recently, an Öhlins ttx22 coil shock. Wow, coil brings it alive, I struggled with the X2 on the rear, and could never get it spot on, but the Öhlins is definitely the way to go

Personally I would not recommend a coil on this frame as the leverage ratio curve is quite linear. You may find you can't find a nice balance between sag, compliance/resistance, and bottoming out. MRP make progressive springs which may help a bit.

I looked into it also and those who know the frame and suspension said the same. Linear curve and coil springs aren't a great match.
Mine's fine with a coil, just don't under calculate your spring????

Anyone know the shock mount sizes for a Swoop 170?

Didn't you ask that two pages ago? I'm pretty sure I answered with the correct sizes.

Built it up 2 months ago, haven't tried it yet.
160mm 29er fork lifted front end by ~10mm compared to 180mm 27.5
I might make a trip to Finale during holiday season to try it out in case there no powder for snowboarding.

Did you end up testing this beast?

Rode it in Finale for a week, it felt great.
Bigger wheel rolls over stuff with ease.
Less travel(160 vs 180) in front makes it more poppy on small hits.
Taller BB is very welcome, I've had couple bad OTBs caused by pedal strikes in the past.
The bike feels more composed when exiting from supported corners or catch berms.

Hi guys, this is my mullet Swoop, 2018 8.0,
160mm Lyrik RC2 51offset, with flipchip in high mode.
Effective sa: 76, bb 350, ha 64.3 and handlebar height didn't change cause i use cane creek slamset and the stem is slammed.
Geo is basically the same with 170mm 27.5 fork and flipchip in park mode.

It is awesome for trails with lots of roots and rocks.

For park use i have 180mm 27.5 fork.
