That's lovely! The Dee-Maxs really set the rest of the frame off nicely.

Rear Shock: Rockshox Super Deluxe Long Travel

Is this different to a standard Super Deluxe? Does it give you more than the usual 4.75" of travel?

Thanks :D

Yes they do differ slightly, but from what I can see it’s only the shaft and body that vary between them, all the internals look the same.

The long travel version has roughly 45mm travel, which I think is around 10mm more than standard.

With the spring and bump stop removed rear travel measures in at roughly 6" with the travel clips set to long travel.

Cheers
