I am looking for headsets to our rental bikes, Gambler 730, 2016 and 2017.
Easiest seems to be to buy Syncros, but they are too pricey. Does anyone have any advice, and what sizes to look for?
Supposed to be semi integrated inner diameter 49,6mm outer diameter 55mm.
Can anyone post a link to a headset that would fit?

annndddd I just bought a 2018 Gambler used. So stoked. I debated buying new bikes from YT, Canyon, and Commencal, but couldn't resist the gambler. I have wanted one for 5 years!

Used to watch FUZE TV with my dad and could never afford a full dh bike. Today my dream will.come.true. My 2013 will be here today! Will post pics later.

For anyone with the same question, this seems to be the answer.

If anyone has a problem with a creak sound and it isnt the headset or the bottom bracket, I took off the shields and greased the bearings on the rear pivots. Creak is now gone Smile

Hi guys,

Is it worth to upgrade linkige of my 2015 gambler to 2018 just to put 241mm shock? Will this make the frame more progressive? What is the main plus of 2018 linkages?

Thanks!

Ok if you wanna fit 83mm cranks on a SM-BB71-41A (which is 71mm) you need spacers, otherwise you will get a lot of issues with your chainline not being lined out proper.

Please read this forum post about possibilities for your case.

Go to your lbs ask if they have bottom brackets that can fit your bike, also ask for spacers. You can fit a 71mm bottom bracket (which is standard), and just use spacers to have a proper lined out chain.

I emailed Scott, and they said that I can use a sram gxp 104.5.41mm Bottom bracket ,so do I think that would fit without any problems?

The bottom bracket would fit without issues, only your cranks are 83mm length so you need to use spacers.

Has anyone ridden both the 2015-2017 bikes, AND the 2018 or 2019 ones? Also interested to hear if there is any significant difference, besides better shock availability with the new ones.
