    SX2 Base, X2 column and airspring kit

    mini mill gas strut

    Thanks! I like that design. I think I am going to try to imitate it? I saw that rysium used gas springs with six inches of travel. Is that what you used? Do you find it limiting? Also, did you make your pulleys? Eric

    Chuck key
