    could always stick a snowmobile shock on the bike, like that one company did. Maybe you could one up them and use a shock from a baja truck?

    You're acting like you're from Pink Bike.





    Not to be an ass, but you don't need mega travel to hit some big drops. Example:http://www.albesmedia.com/doschcali.html


    Yes, that was a fully rigid BMX bike.

    its not the travel is the skill. besides all that travel has to rebound and if u look at bender u can clearly see how 15 inches works out. i would rather drop with a 8 inch travel downhill bike super stiff no rebound

    Are you talking about building a frame from scratch? And you've done it before? Got pix?

    If he's going to build this bike, why use on of their rear shocks? He could buy two forks and then use one for the rear suspension!! Like the old manitou full suspension

    <edit> I even found a pick for you, now imagine this with a 12" travel fork front and rear
