If it's not working and you've maxed out the spacers, then yeah, you're low on options without changing the crank. The only thing you can do, if I recall your situation, is to mount a chainring on the inner position.

Upload it to your Pinkbike profile, or link to it if it's on another image hosting site.

What possible freehub body replacements are there for a sunringle dirty flea? Original part# is EH0910T. I can't seem to find an equivalent, an am unaware of other 9/10 speed bodies with the same interface. Called Hayes and no one answered...

Will a 10 speed Shimano chain connecting pin work on an 11 speed chain?

I believe the flea hubs (flea, jumping flea, dirty flea etc) are all the same hub internals wise, and are the same genetics as the stans 3.30 and spank oozy hubs.

Not well, if it all. Even if it does work, it'd create a weak point in the chain, leading to eventual failure at that point.

Basically, get the correct connecting pin and you'll be fine.

Hey guys I’m trying to buy a 160mm air shaft for a Pike but all the new debonair air shafts are sold out. What isn’t sold out is the older generation debonair but this one says it’s for A1 and A2 2014-2017 Pikes. Mine is a 2019 and these air shafts look identical. Is there any reason why I can’t use that?

I have a 160mm airshaft from a 2016 pike, not sure if it'll fit, but if it does, PM me, more than happy to send it over. Somld my bike with the pike on it, so its just spare parts, just gotta dig it up from the pile of spare parts

Is there a trick to taking off new cranks or I just have to lean in on the bitch

What kind of crankset? It depends, some need a puller, some just unscrew (my Raceface ones), others are overly complex and annoying.

What cranks? Which part is fighting you? If it's a self extraction bolt on a splined interface more torque is your solution.
