Devol lowering link!

Well, I had it installed last week, and took it for a test ride, 50 km trail (31.25 miles).

 

Devol claims it lowers the back by 1.25", but it only lowers it 1", which is just fine. Raised the forks 1 cm, which is a little bit less than 1/2".

The bike came from standing at 37.7" to 36.25".

 

I have a 29" inseam, and still tippy toe the bike, but it feels SO MUCH BETTER now! I didn't feel or notice any changes in the steering and

cornering, but I have to say, I'm no racer, just a trail rider.

 

Happy camper here :thumbsup:

 

As a conclusion to many lowering issues posted and discussed extensively here at TT, I would have to say, lowering links and raising the forks

works, just as long as you don't intend on lowering the bike more than a couple of inches, and IF YOU DON'T RACE! ... then again,

that is just my opinion.

 

I thank all who have posted about the subject...they all helped me taking this decision.

 

Cheers.

 

BTW, the bike still looks sexy :cool:

careful with lowering links you don't bottom the tire into the rear fender.

I don't think I'll bottom it out, I can barely jump :rolleyes:
