Racing Ralph - I've gone for shorter travel for a snappier, more responsive ride. I'd fancied the idea of a 4x type of bike for all round mucking about and trail centres, but at 6'2" they are too cramped for all day use and most don't give the option of a front mech for winding up fireroads.
Running the shorter shock in the XC position gives me a theoretical head angle of 68 degrees, seat tube angle at 74 degrees and the bb height measures up at just under 13.5". The 130mm 36s have an almost identical a2c height as a set of Pikes. I measured the head angle at somewhere between 66 and 67 degrees though? The FR setting makes the bb far too low. It took a bit of juggling of shock air pressures to get the right balance of bottom-out resistance vs. compliance, but it still feels pretty supple.
Got this for when I feel the need for more travel:
