1" raising link

So I'd been reading everything I could find on getting better suspension out of the bike. I just couldn't bring myself to pay the big $$$ for a reworked rear shock. But at 6'4" I was really feeling big on the bike. Then I was looking around on "flea bay" and found a no name 1" raising link for $24 with $6 shipping. $30 I figured even if it busts in a year I'll know if it works. Well, I took it out for a ride today and liked it. Suspension was higher without being a washboard and felt very good in the corners. I may even try lowering the preload a notch. Can't wait to try it off road.

My excuse is that I washed the bike and "IT" shrank! :roll:
