    do you think a rm7 would ride good with a single crown like a 66 our 36 our something, my other choice is a shiver, i wanna go single crown becasue ited be more flickable and probly lighter. but the dc i would think would be stiffer. im gonna be raceing downhill doing freeride and big urban gaps. my frames a little small so if it was raked a little ited be better, thats kinda why im leaning twards a 66. thanks

    ps. not sure where exactly to put this thread so if its wrong sorry

    i don't see any concern there, and if you want it more raked out then pick up the 05 66rc, it has a taller A-C than the 06, though the 06 has more features, the 06 66xl or whatever sounds nice too if your smaller and want something lighter...

    I used to run a SC shiver on mine, it worked great for small stuff.

    The 66 can be converted from 150-170. The 170 66 might be a little higher than you want, but it would certainly be doable (I currently have a 170 66 on my rmx). The 150 would be nice, and an 06 version would be ideal.

    Yes you can, it requires draining the oil and removing a spacer from each leg. Not terribly difficult.

    The RMX rides very well. I ran an RM6/7 a few years ago, these are fun bikes.
