2 questions.

Is 3mm enough clearance to still use all the internally routed cables and dropper cable on a 2017 Insurgent? I'm debating a OneUp dropper v2 and I'd have 3mm if I slam it to the collar. I need my dropper to go to the collar. Just wondering if 3mm will be enough room.

Also, has anyone put this specific decal on their evil?

I really like this look, just looking to see if anyone's done it.

thanks!

Not sure about your exact question, but I know on my (Large) 2017 Insurgent a V1 OneUp 170mm Dropper slams all the way down to the collar. A 210mm (v2) does not - sticks out about an inch. Hope that helps you.

How tall are you? I'm 5'9" and want to run a Large Insurgent LB on 160mm long cranks--you think a 180mm dropper is long enough amount of rise (as I'll be slamming the post as low as it can get)--or should I go 210mm..? (on a oneup v2 dropper of course)

I like my saddle as low as possible when its dropped.

Weird. I thought the v2 was smaller? Or do you mean you went from a 170mm to a 210mm? If so, it would make sense that it wouldn't go to the collar. It's 40mm bigger.

It really depends on your inseam, I am 6'1" with a 33-34" inseam. 170mm cranks. My 210mm is down as far as it goes, and is just the right height. I measured and it sticks out 1.75" above the collar. I wish it was lower, but I can run this no matter what I ride "as is" - I would always lower my 170 / 150 droppers on shuttle / bike park days, back up for trails. You might be best going with a 180mm dropper in my opinion.

V2 is smaller, I went from a V1 170mm to a V2 210mm.

Good to know, thanks! I ordered the OneUp. It's coming this Saturday. Hopefully, it fits how I'd like it to.

Has anyone tried out the new MRP progressive spring? Curious to see if it would work on my Insurgent.

It's already a very progressive frame. Unless you are routinely bottoming out an appropriate chosen conventional spring there shouldn't be a need.

Bought a OneUp V2 dropper and... first ride it will not go up all the way. Looked up sticking and its a problem for others. I'm thinking to just return it to Backcountry as defective because a dropper that doesn't extend through all its travel, isn't worth using in my opinion. Back to the drawing board of finding another dropper to use.

I had same problem. Grease the bushing and pump up the air chamber to 250 or whatever it says. Worked fine after that.

Lads i can get a cracking deal on a rockshox super deluxe coil but its a med/med tune. And evil recommeds low and low.

Spoke to a few people about it and its mixed reviews if it matters or not.

Thoughts or experiences please share

Mine did the same thing once, but I had it jammed in as far down as it could go. Pulled it out about 1-2mm (very minor amount) and haven't had issues since (maybe 12 rides on the new one total).

Wish I could say that was the problem. Got mine a good 2 inches sticking out.

Returning my OneUp dropper, didn't want to have to check it or lube it before every ride.

Maybe a bit late here but are you sure the seat clamp wasn't too tight? My One Up V1 was very sensitive to it, too tight and I would only get about half the travel. Carbon paste helped a lot to stop it slipping.
