    Hi guys.

    Quick question, Will a 230 x 65mm rear shock fit OK on a 230 x 60 frame?

    It will fit. Whether you find your wheel will hit the frame or the shock controls etc. will hit something at full compression…. You’re gaining give or take 8% travel (leverage ratio plays a part I am conveniently ignoring here) so do you have 8% more room everywhere you need it?

    Depending on the suspension design: potential dangerous to do so…

    These 5 mm will translate at on other “point” in your bike into 15 mm or so. If you have the shock around maybe try it. If you like to order the shock: wouldn’t do it.
