The wood is 230-65mm = 165mm eye to eye length.
Holes are very tight 8mm and 10mm as it is hardware. The upper bolt 8mm - I had to even screw it in (it cut it's own thread during installation)

With stock shock I firstly lifted rear end of the bike about 1mm off the ground, centered with that white chair and corrected according to level gauge placed on seat, made entire bike inline with front wheel and measured rear axle bolt from the ground.

After installation of wooden plank I repeat the process.

I don't think there can be more error than 1 - 2 mm in my metodology. I now believe Commencal saying it's 155mm travel in dynamic is correct figure...or very close to.

In sensitive mode I have the same experience...easy to bottom and use all travel. In dynamic/responsive is harder to achieve all travel.

Did you perform this same measurement in sensitive setting as comparison? What were the results?

No I didn't...at least not yet. But I don't have reason to not believe commencal that it's got 170mm travel in that mode.

I agree - but it would reinforce your method and further prove your accuracy.

I recently switched back to sensitive after riding dynamic for a year, and I find the 155/170 numbers easy to believe.

Does anyone have a picture of what the clash looks like with the rear shock rotated so that the reservoir is closer to the seat tube? Trying to figure out what it looks like mounting a water bottle inside my front triangle

In clash 2021/22, the chain line is, 52 or 55?

Anyone thought about/tried to up the rear shock to 240x75 from 230x65 to increase the rear travel? Currently running the new school mullet 27.5/26 and thinking I could negate the slackness and add a little more travel as a bonus.

I run high pressure, about 95 or 100 psi and 4 volume spacers. I'm 6'4" and 95kg, 210 pounds.
I've set it up to be very stiff for jumping.
