    Hy guys,

    my name is jan, im 26 and from germany. First of all I want to say sorry for my bad englisch. I am not into technical terms of bike parts, only in german ;)

    I bought a corsair crown frame with 2 shocks and build the bike by myself. It works fine, but the bottom bracket is sitting very deep comparised to my freeride bike and my oder downhill bike. After jums or in curves I got the problem that the pedal hits the ground. This can be very tricky after jumgs when the pedal hits on the bottom and I was close to get off the bike :rolleyes:

    Do you have any ideas to fix it? I use a X0 crank handle.

    Best regards from germany
    Sorry again for my englisch :(

    Jan,
    Seems like you are blowing through all your travel and smacking pedal arms on the ground.

    What two shocks do you have?
    Do the issues occur with both shocks?
    How much sag are you running? Is the shock overly sagged?
    What do you weigh and what spring is on the shock?
    How long are your crank arms?

    The answer to all these questions may help to expose the issue.

    Regards,
    Marc

    for the air shock - is there enough pressure in it?
    for the coil shock - are you running the appropriate weight spring?
