    If I got a Vanilla RC, does anyone know if someone like Push can make a 2.25" stroke a 2" stroke? It's using the right e to e, but too much stroke. I would want to send it in to have it pushed, so this isn't really anything extra, since the shock is priced pretty right. Thoughts???

    I don't know about a RC but push was able to shorten the stroke on my RP3, i'd think that the process for shortening the stroke would be similar. so maybe.

    should be able to put a plastic .25in, 2 piece spacer under the bottom out bumper to limit travel, then it would be easy to convert it back to 2.25. use a zip tie to hold the spacer together.

    Push already emailed me back and said "no go". Cool as hell on them for responding to my question at 10 pm CO time. Props on the support.

    i hear that if you put on a good deal of weight, your weiner 'shortens', therefore, your stroke would, in theory, shorten.
