    That's what I figured. After 3 wheeling pretty good at Flagpole I need a different set-up, figure might as well go full retard with it.

    And flagpole knob was more of a dirt road than anything at all. I dont want to get too crazy with it because when i see JA flex i cringe waiting for his e brake cable to break

    Don't want to go that crazy, been eyeing the BAMF shock tower and they're calling for 12" travel shocks. Should be more than reasonable without breaking stuff.
