I was just wondering if anyone is interested in some "precision" lowering bones. I know Jason sells them but the stock ones having a needle bearing press fitted in the aluminum.

These will be CNC cut out of high strength aluminum and will have needle roller bearings at one end just like the stock ones.

This bearings will provides frictionless movement with out causing any friction damage on your frame etc..

Just seeing if there is any interest out there!

IF you are interested how much would you like to lower your bike?

I am making some now and can add some to production if there is interest
Sizes are:
1.5"
2.0"
2.5"

If you will notice, Jason and some other engineer types studied the stockers and determined that the bushing was there for added support of the weaker aluminum. The actual movement at the pivot points is minimal at best so no bearings are really needed. His is solid steel, so no strength would be gained by adding a bushing... unless you are making them out of weaker aluminum which it sounds like you plan to.
