Bladder cells are recommended but not required.

Yes and 9" uptravel. Avail shock downtravel is 7" but we'll most likely be limited there to our heim angles.
Rear is 15" uptravel and 6" down.

I just had something happen that made me smile in the middle of a shitty day.
When we need steel burnouts that are thicker than 5" we have a company in Ohio do them for us. We've been working with them for years.

Two weeks ago, I sent them this drawing for a clevis cut out of 6.75" steel plate. Most here know what a clevis looks like:



It required a double sided burn; one for the initial and then another to radius the two legs:

This is what they sent me:



Sent my inside sales guy an email with the picture and we both laughed a bit (They've made countless burnouts of this same style part for us)
He said he'd get another one right out.

This came in today:



I couldn't even get mad; had to laugh.

At least there's really only one plane left for them to do to get it right.

Seriously, the scrap value of the two slabs will just about pay for the actual part. Add to that the $200 each for shipping (the reason they're not asking us to return the bad ones) and their profit margin is a little bit down.

While we're off topic, I figured I'd toss out one reason work has been coming out of the shop slowly:

Boyne Highlands DH crash

Yea, it was ugly. That trail exits with a 3' drop onto a wood ramp. I was getting set up for it, not paying attention to the right side, and clipped a tree with the bars. That's what put me dead on into the next tree. I bounced down and popped off the lip and landed on my shoulder blade on the corner of the ramp.
After the 6hr drive home, I looked like Quasi-modo.

The funny part is my buddy who helped me up set my helmet down twice; both times with the camera pointing right at me as I'm trying to clear my head.
He swears it was completely unintentional and coincidence.

I'm not convinced.

Dropped it off at Lane's house last weekend.
He called me on my way home, after playing around with it, saying, "This thing isn't even fair."
