There are so many innovations on this puppy it's freaking crazy! Not satisfied with your rake? No problem! Same goes for the fork length. Adjust both with very little effort and switch back again when you are ready!
The RELIC is shipped with a standard 3/4" axle kit. The axle bushings are included as well and can be modified to use metric axles should you need.
Accommodations for an internal fork stop have been provided. Use a Pro-One bottom bearing race with stop tab (Sold Separately) and don't worry about drilling and tapping holes. Everything is already taken care of!
The RELIC accepts most any performance mountain bike shock that are 180 to 200 mm (7.5" to 8" eye to eye) with a minimum 2 inches (25 mm) of travel. Spring rate is up to your personal preference but we have found that 350 to 400 lbs is a great starting point for most bikes up to 500 lbs. See below for selection of shocks or use your own.
Also built into the RELIC are mounting points for a variety of aftermarket "Springer type" brake systems. The bottom two holes on the leg gussets are 5/16 and 3/8 I.D. allowing stand-offs to be used when mounting your brake hardware. See below for optionl calipers and brackets.
Typical turn-around time on RELIC front ends is between four to five weeks! Shipping charges will be by separate invoice and TEXAS sales tax will apply...
