Greg Minnaar has one of the longest and tallest bikes on the circuit but somehow, it's not stretched out enough. These 17mm dropouts where machined in house with the aim to get him more centered over his frame. However, they added 5mm to the bike's travel. To negate this, the fellows over at Santa Cruz machined a custom lower link to bring the travel back to the stock 215mm. 17mm was the shortest distance before risking failure. Up front, Minnaar is running an 8mm Buzz Works headset cup and 20mm of rise under the stem.  Up front, Minnaar is running an 8mm Buzz Works headset cup and 20mm of rise under the stem. The combined reach adjustments makes his bike 25mm longer than stock.
