    Default 1991 Strada ride height adjustment

    Hi, how can I adjust the rear ride height(lower it) on my bike?
    It does not have the eccentric adjuster fitted.
    Can I alter the height by adjusting the white metal hoop?

    Thanks Mike.

    Yes. The eccentric on the SP's changes the suspension ratio.

    My swinging arm rose joints are fully screwed in, will screwing them out lower the ride height then?

    I would try and get the encentric adjuster refitted,why do you want to lower the back?
    I found by dropping the forks on my bike by 25mm it handles better and turns a lot sharper than standard! A big improvement IMO works for my style of riding!

    If your problem is that you're short in the legs?
    You could put a slightly shorter shock in, Hagon make them up for riders with this problem.

    I'm 6 foot tall so legs no problem! The bike is too 'nose heavy' already.
    When I got the bike it was even worse(previous owner was very tall).
    I have backed off the preload which has dropped the rear a bit.
    I just thought it could be the ride height adj or white hoop.

    Thanks for replies.

    Mike.
