Just finished my custom 2017 Scott Gambler.

It's sick, I only would have put some decals under the clear coat

I thought about that, but decided to put them on over the clear coat. I wanted to be able to change colour if I get bored by the current ones. Ordered some black decals wich will arrive soon.

It looks so good in raw, I am very tempted to strip mine too...

The camera doesn't do it justice, it looks even better. I tried stripping it chemically but due to EU regulations we only get the weak stuff, there is no point in even trying with that. I got it done by a professional for about 30$. I achieved the finish with Scotch-Brite pads.

I noticed that the bars of my rear linkage (2017) have some play, I'm able to twist them just a little bit.. The rear triangle itself doesnt have any side to side play. Does anyone else have this problem? If so how can i fix it?

Control your bearings. You are probably good to change 4 of them in the linkage rods.
It could be one of your screw/axle which is a bit loose, check tightening torque too.

The bearings are new, and I assembled everything with a torque wrench. I put the chamfered side of the red washers towards the bearings. Is that the right way ?

Ok, it seems that you have done everything good.
So, it's hard to understand why your bike has play.
Yes, washers are correctly assembled.

Man this bike is good

So you are/were a bmxer? It looks like it, reading your posts.

I was watching a Nico Vink bikecheck and he manuals everywhere. Kinda my thing when riding bmx. Well he also rides a Gambler!

Im planning to buy a DH bike, so i rode a mate's bike yesterday, and pretty sure that was a linear bike. Suuper mushy.

Do you like having a more progressive bike? Linear just feels really sluggish for me. No pop.

Does progressive feel better for jumping/hopping and manualing? (From a bmx riders perspective)


Edit: i'm pretty sure i quoted a post from wayyy back... sorry guys Smile

Damn it! I just did mine last week. You would have saved me a bit of money

I saw that bike on vitalmtb and i was in awe. Wish i could see the clear carbon a little better though, i was looking for some patterns and weaves but couldn't spot much lol.

Was it bought raw or did you strip the frame?

What you see is UD fiber, when you mention weaves you're talking about 12k, 6k, 3k etc... As Scott frames are extremely light they don't use an additional 'cosmetic' layer to shave few more grams.
The light reflection is much brighter tho as an entire patch can be shiny with the right angle and not just a combo of tiny squares.
The frame is factory coated.

Hi, Does anyone have a rear triangle for sale? Orange 2017 preferred but anything will do at this point.
