    Will you summarize why one should consider swapping these bits for stock? Thanks.

    Todd, can I have eye to eye length for the 'R' please and also does the pre-load adjuster need a tool to adjust or can it be done by hand?

    The G11 & 12 are delivered with quite severe damping rates. Depending on how you ride, it may work well, or not. If you think the Griso suspension is adequate as delivered with a few simple tweaks, none of these are for you.

    For those who have ridden a bike where the suspension was set up for your weight and riding style, you know it is worth every $.

    My Bella's rear shock appears to my dim eyes (& brain) to be 310mm eye to eye, with about 40mm stroke length to the rubber bump stop, all measured on the bike. B)

    That could possibly be a rocker ratio of 3:1
    I do wish to raise the rear 1" (measured from the axle) so I'm guessing a 8mm longer shock?????
    But a 310 eye to eye with the option of +15mm would be handy.
