I run 11-42 on my hardtail but you gotta be dead on with chain length. I tried to add a goat link to help with shifting at on the small end of the cassette and it changed the length enough to where I was between links and has to take it off... Would geuss 11-40 would be a safer combo...

To elaborate on the poor shifting it wouldn't like to drop from 9-10 most of the time. Dropping from 3/4-1 is also a little cozy with trying to balance the b tension on the other end too.

Hopefully that helps...

What’s the widest range cassette I could use with a zee rear mech on a hardtail? Should I be able to get an 11-36 on it?

the FR (medium cage) version is rated for up to 36T

I have seen people run a 11-40 with a goat link .. if you google it there is videos

I'm currently doing this. Works very well once set up.

So that clanking around is the fork? and it just needs a service? werd.

You ability to decipher that video is way better than mine. Salute

Sounds like the top out bumper is missing, or broken down.

İ dont know guys the fork never ridden in the harsh conditions .Only urban riding because of i dont have time to go a park but fork have something like 30 35 hours and its confusing me why this happening

Cheers for the help. I’ve seen the mech for a tenner on fb so I’ll get it. Sick of my 9 speed deore dropping the chain in anticipation of the anything off road xD.

Just seen it says dh on the bit where it connects to the hanger. So does this mean it has less range?

This can be used to convert to FR (36t) if you need the extra capacity.

Hi drivetrain gurus!

Will a SRAM NX EAGLE cassette fit on my older Hope Pro 2 with a SRAM 9spd on it now? I don't know exactly how old the hub is but it's on a 2014 bike.
Thanks!

Yes it will. Everything from 8-12 speed so longs as it uses the splined freehub will work together. Does not apply for road 11 speed which is longer

As far as I know, MTB freehubs take the following cassettes:
1. Shimano HG 8/9/10/11 & SRAM 8/9/10 or SRAM NX 11/12 speed
2. SRAM XD 11/12 (all e13 cassettes)
3. Shimano MicroSpline 11/12

Does anyone care to share an online reference or have a link which explains it all?

Thank you

Hey Guys,

I have a question. I have a 2019 Rocky Mountain Instinct I am building up.

I sold the stock fork with the crown race still on (rookie move, I know).

I need to find a crown race for my new fork that will work with my headset.

The headset is an FSA Orbit NO.57E
The lower bearing code is TH MR019 1.5 36x45

Does anyone know what crown race I need to get going?

Thanks in advance
