Easy fellas,

Looking to get myself a winter hardtail return to the fold, been eyeing up a clockwork137 but wondering how they ride & if they'd handle a 140mm fork, I don't really want to go as extreme as a crush I don't think?

I'm based in the peak district & mainly allmountain ride.

Thanks.

I think the Clockwork 137 is the sweet spot for an Orange hardtail if you already have a full sus. The Crush is so fun to ride, but that isn’t how I tend to ride my hardtail, it is more for gentler boring rides.

Hello chaps.
My patriot 66 has a 9mm quick release back hub set up.
Other than replacing the rear swing arm for a bolt through type, is there anything I can do to convert it or modify it, to create a stiffer more stable rear end?

I've had a Alpine6 already and bought this summer a Clockwork137 to have a daily for work and some Hardtail rides with folkes.
As you said didnt wont to go too extrem with a Crush as I want to peddal to work as well, but I can tell you that the Clockwork137 handles Trails toooo good ! I was the last 6 weeks only on the hardtail haha its so much fun on the Trails.
Last week I switched back to the Alpine, it felt like a hovercraft over the rough stuff after such a "long" time on the hardtail....

Float x2 on stage 6 help?
Running just under max psi (245) on float x2 on my stage 6 . Using recommended factory click settings , it don’t feel right on the rough stuff and cornering ...
any recommended settings for a stage 6 .

How does it not feel right?

I ended up tuning mine by doing repeated laps of a familiar trail, making adjustments each time (and noting them down).

The other option would be to buy/hire a Shockwiz or similar.

The above about session ing something is the best idea... The float x2 manual also gives you a pretty good explanation of the dials and what they effect in very basic terms, this should help a fair bit, other than that you need to explain more about what your issues are as, it doesn't feel right is a pretty bad explanation

Hi, after a bit of advice. Ive got a alpine 160 2016 which I’ve owned from new, with the fox factory float x rear shock. Im after changing it to a factory x2. Has anyone got any experience of this setup? And any tips when I get the shock to get a decent base tune?
Thanks danny
