Stoked on my 2018 710 Gambler! Such a playful DH bike.

I do find it has a LOT of chain growth... I sized the chain at full compression around the largest cog and notice I get a ton of chain slap and even some vibration on the chain guide. How is everyone else sizing their chain? It’s very unlikely I’ll ever bottom out the suspension is the easiest gear... rarely in that gear at all. Is everyone sizing their chain off a smaller cog?

I have a short cage Zee and went single speed for this reason, didn't like the chain slap. I guess that if I went with the medium cage it would have had proper tension on the smallest cog. You could also remove some gears, it's very unlikely that you need more than 7, and size the chain on your 7th gear. Don't size it on the smallest, it will be too short.

The medium cage idea is interesting for sure. I think for the time being I’ll just stick with the 10 speed cassette but size it off the middle... again, when are you bottoming out in the easy gears really?

Single speed idea is very interesting!

I notice it’s a slap but sometimes even almost a vibration, guessing that’s when the chain is pulled and vibrates on the chain guide - did you notice that as well at all?

I only ran it with a narrow wide since the beginning so I don't know about that.

The chain slap is very bad. I just use really good chain stay/seat stay protection

If you cover the postage you can have it, will be about £5

Anybody try an air shock (Fox X2) on the 2018-2019 Gambler linkage?

For people that have installed the angle adjust headset cups, does the frame provide a pretty straightforward way to line them up with those inner notches? I have the bearing press and what not, I’ve just never installed an angle adjust headset and want to know what I’m getting into before popping out the stock cups.

Thanks!
