Is it possible to have a 200x57 shock reduced down to 198x55? The reason I'm asking is that I'm considering a Mega TR, getting rid of the shock and installing offset bushings the wrong way round and then swapping in a 198x55 rp23. Should give 145ish mm of travel, assuming the tyres don't contact the seatpost. Then I'm going to fit 150mm Pikes out front with a custom 1 degree angleset from works components, to give me roughly the same geometry as my sorely missed Mega in a package with a bit less travel and 1lb less weight.
Figure if know one builds the bike I wan't, I'm going to bodge it.
Also, will I die a firey death?
