130mm dogbones will work fine, it was one of the length options of my four length Projection Components dogbones.  I think the 127s gave a very slight tail-end lift, whereas 130mm should be more like the standard height.

Awesome, just bought the 130mm ones so I'll let you know how I get on  :D


I bought some generic top hat spacers on ebay for a few quid, but I think they're 1mm too wide as the shock won't fit in so need to file them down 1mm each.  :'(

Finally found the pictures to update.   2C0 shocks just require a tiny bit of filing on top - stops it fouling the top frame brace.


 


Those shocks don't fit as many other bikes, so there might be some bargains out there...
