I just finished building a fsr gc, feels nice blasting through the woods. Just need finish the gears and poss changing forks and rear shock. Forks are marzocchi mx pro eta which feel ok but the spring does rattle over bumps and the shock is a manitou swinger 3 way air which is soft (240psi) and doesn't feel that plush over bumps, would a coil be better, with plushness and a heavier rider

Hi Martin

My seat stay hasn't got the pre-drilled hole for the sharkfin!
I only wanted the seat stay as a template / to measure the exact position of the bottom hole so I can drill accurately!!

If someone could supply a photo or sketch with accurate measurements to suitable points of reference I can get my build on the go.

Many thanks

David
