    Why drop the travel, never got anywhere near 130 let alone 140 on my Floats

    Can’t speak for rj but frame may be optimised for 130.

    I know Fox do a spacer to drop the travel to 120, but I rather want mine at 130mm. Anyone tried to do this? I was thinking I could just machine up a shorter version of the spacer from Delrin. Or am I just being dense?

    Just run a tad less pressure. Get the correct dynamic geometry but with more supple suspension … Win, win situation in management speak!

    The Fox drawing for a 10mm travel spacer can be found by clicking here. Unfortunately the dimensions are in inches…

    Just use the standard spacer and cut it in half!

    I wouldn’t bother. I put a 20mm spacer in mine and now they sit at 135mm rather than 145mm (without sag).

    Nice on Edd, saves me buying one and drawing it up.

    No problems rj.

    If you can’t be bothered to get it machined then you can almost certainly get a 10mm spacer from Mojo. Give them a call on 01633 615815.
