TAG Monolever

A couple of you have asked for more info on the TAG monolever:

standard +100mm length, aluminium, shock mounting point on swingarm allows for a shock that is the same dimensions as the standard shock and they sell an Ohlins designed to go onto it (see photo).

The HPN/Moorespeed monos have the mounting point a bunch further back. Does this approach give more 'control' because of lower lever pressure?

The interesting thing is that the TAG swingarm is angled at 6 degrees to the right, so that you can offset your rim for a 140 tyre and not have too much overall wheel offset.

From what I had understood on a 'standard' extended mono, you need to offset your rim the approx 12-14mm from center-line to clear a 140.

With the TAG design you have approx 10mm of play on your rim offset to get back to centreline, so resulting in an approx 2-4mm offset.

They said that there is not enough width at the gearbox end to allow for a greater angling of the mono that would totally remove this offset.

does this all make sense?
