You better get a new phone cause you are not making any cents.
Cutting rod is no big deal

Whoops, i meant to say that the place i work at makes the suspension link for the cross bikes, i cut the upright part of the link last night, the tube that goes from the clevis type end to the bushing end at the top. We cut 1182 of this part last night in the tubing laser i was running, now they will go to welding and get finished up. When done, someone like me will take it out of their bike and put a shorter one in to lower the rear end down! Haha


If i could post a pic i would, but hopefully soon i will be able to post and see pics again.

Yep the one you made for me is sitting in a box with all the other stock parts. It would be nice if you made them adjustable.

yes you will lose some suspension. That means the top of the tire will be one inch closer to top of frame. If your not a big man and women you should be fine. But you can add air to your shock. You will still have same ride
yes WD

Any loss in travel will be worth the extra stability and footing. I made mine as a one inch drop, then bought an adjustable one. I didnt notice any real loss in ride quality at the one inch, i ran about 10psi in the shock for just me.
