If you run a 36t front chainring then you do not need to remove he cranks to get at the lower shock bolt.Hmmm... I have my own way of doing this, but I think DW knows how to do this properly.:biggrin:
I can say this - you do need to remove the cranks to get at the lower shock mount hardware.
As far as the upper hardware coming loose - this is a common problem with the 05/06 linkage.All you need to do is put some blue Locktite on the threads and torque it down to the proper spec.
Also: for the guy who is 6'1" - I'd say you're almost in between a 17" and a 19"... Personally I'd lean toward a 17" I think Duncan Riffle is about your height and he rides a 17" if I am not mistaken.
I think at 6'1" you can really go either way. I rode on a 19" last year and started out the year on the 19" again. I tried a freinds 17" and really loved it. So when I had the opportunity to get a 17" i jumped on it. As this point of the season I regret that decision a bit. If I were staying on the east coast permanantly I would deffinately stay with the 17" but as an all around bike for next year I think I will be on a 19"
I think Duncan is used to and really likes small bikes and that is why he rides the 17".
