hey guys, my size M 710 Gambler from 2015 came with a 300*3.5 spring I find it a bit soft, the manual guide says that for my weight,73 kgs, I should be on a 400*3.5 spring. The SAG value is 30% even though the bike bottoms out easily. Do you think I should change it?

400 spring sounds like a good start, you should match the rear to the front.

dont forget to slow the rebound or you could get bounced everywhere through rock gardens.

Where in the USA can I order a Shimano-Direct Mount Rear Derailleur Hanger for my 2016 Gambler? I seem to can only find companies overseas that sells this!

I show you a preview. This is my custom painted Scott Gambler 10 from 2013.
Just collected it today from the paint shop.

Building my bike up with some new parts etc.
Full build I will share here as well once it's finished.

I would occasionally get seat buzz from the rear tire so I went to an SDG I-Fly Saddle and that helped.

I run a Semenuk Liason on my 2018. What I did was take the spring off my shock and compress the suspension fully then adjust the seat to be a few mm from the tire at full travel.

Riding a SDG Duster, but I hardly sit in the seat, so probably I am not the best in giving advice with this.

I also get seat buzz. I already ordered a 0 offset rail seatpost, but I will search for something with a similar shape.

I removed the shock completely but with the seatpost with backwards offset it buzzes badly. I think your method is better as it gives the exact maximum extension.

It looks good, I don't sit on it either, I was curious more about looks.


Thank you all for your suggestions!

SDG makes a non I-Beam version of the seat called the Radar. They can be found for pretty cheap.

Is that 29" at the back as well? i am thinking of doing exactly this with mine. There is tons of tire space. even with 650b 2.5 magic marys.

If you look at the picture you can see it's a 27.5" at the back.
So he is running a mullet setup.

That can remove your testicles.
