Swapping shocks for flat bar stock
Some time in the near future, my bike is going hard tail. I have looked over the various projects about doing this. However, there is a concern I'd like alleviated. Will the flat bar cause any alignment issues with the rear end? I am considering mounting them in one of 2 locations: the stock shock mount; or on the frame under the seat (the junction point).
Any thoughts about this would be appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT: what size are the shock mounting bolts? Are they by any chance 1/2 inch? If so, I found a set of pre-made 10" struts by biltwell. Like to use those if they wold work. Thanks.
I only understand what I don't understand.
