    Did the 3/4 eliptic the other day and I get a bit of unloading on the buggy leaf , I have no more axle wrap than before. I was thinking of putting a limiting strap on the center of the axle, has anyone messed with this setup before ?
    Any suggestions are welcome.

    I'd be extremely interested in seeing it if you could.

    Since I don't have a digi-cam it's kinda hard for me to post pics, but I will see what I can do. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I would defintely put some type of limiting strap in place, 1/4 & 3/4 eliptical's have mega amounts of droop.

    Ive been running that setup for a few years/forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Run a search on "springer suspension" and you will find a bunch of people running it also.I plan on running a center mounted limit strap also.

    So how did you do yours?Longer springs,move the rear hanger?
