The Mega TR 275 has 130mm of rear travel and I'm wanting to know if I can up this with either a different shock ? offset shock bushes or something else ..

I know the logical answer is to simply get a frame with more rear travel but where would be the fun/challenge in that ?

Cheers
Stuart

If you want to make the rear wheel be able to move further you need a different (longer) linkage between the rear shock bushing and chainstay. That looks like the only difference between the tr and the am. The am has a longer linkage and longer shock, allowing more wheel travel without the tyre hitting the seat tube or saddle.

Have you tried tuning the shock you've got? This might be enough to get some improvement without changing any parts.
