No thanks, I'll just build it how I want.

I think the concern is that the axle placement drastically changes the leverage and rear axle travel that may have undersireble handling effects and chain effective length changes. The same may be true with getting longer shocks.

One course of action would be to locate the front pivot lower or maybe adjust the seat subframe angle to create more room above the tire.

Your initial design could work but I would maybe look at relocating the engine higher in the cradle to move the front sprocket and reduce the arc that the chain would need to go through.

Maybe something like the CR390 could be inspiration?

when you have an ignorant "builder" that does things based on how cool it looks talking sense is a lost cause

Thanks for your concern.  I have mocked it up, tested it, and taken some measurements and I don't think there will be a problem.  Only way to know for sure is to build it.

I get stretching the swinger to move the axle back, but how are you going to move it down?
