Seems like I recall seeing a pic of the factory fork bumpstop next to an aftermarket version, probably in one of Nick Stoltech's threads. I am 220 w gear, and this is the travel used on a fairly mild street ride of 160 miles the other day (I'm a street noob). Looks to me like the fork travel was on, or very close to hitting the bumpstop. Top of the zip tie is 32mm from the bottom of the slider. Zip tie on the shock is backed up to the bumpstop. Fork preload is maxed, with rebound 1/4 turn from full. Shock is 1 notch from full preload, rebound 1/4 turn from full. I feel suspension is about as important as safety gear, as it can make the difference in keeping, or losing control in this high consequence activity. I'm currently researching options, and this site is my #1 resource. Thanks to all contributing here.
