They have 5.5" of travel with the standard length shock, so that must have 3ft of travel :lol:

Those bikes always look goofy but this one is real goofy. How do these bikes ride?

My mates got one and he loves it. They're good for long day rides, quite comfortable. They do suffer with big stinkbug antics under braking and it won't live with anything relatively modern. Works best if you don't get out the saddle.
I did consider converting one to singlespeed with rigid forks :twisted:

That's the way Gary Klein had originally designed it to be ridden!
