just spotted this on ebay > http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/YBN-S9-Soul-9 ... 3cbb256aa1

do you think this'll be ok for a dh bike ? :lol:

i guess it'll be quite strong since theres some torque involved with roadbikes ?


Do you know of many 7" or 8" travel full suspension road bikes?

The question is though does a road bike application result in more or less tension on the chain than an mtb application? :lol: :P :roll: :facepalm:


Woudlnt it vary in places?

i.e road bike chain torque would be consitent where as mtb will be high and low but the averages will be similar
