Anyone put a MRP SXg chain guide on their sentinel? I am thinking of throwing a guide on my rig and like the looks of the SXg more than the standard AMg version.

Full wrap around ISCG mount guides are pretty tight on transitions. I put an e13 LG1 guide on my patrol and it required a lot of grinding and some hacksawing of the backplate to get it to work. Also had to grind into the upper guide to get it to clear the chainstay.

Any updates on running an sbg scout with a float x2 or a coil? Not happy with the dvo topaz currently on it, so I'm wanting to try something a little more plush.

My buddy is running a Cane Creek inline coil on his scout with nothing but good things to say.

So is the sentinel changing or staying the same for another year?

I'm stuck in the never ending rabbit hole of which bike to get. My options are trek slash, remedy, or wait until spring for the sentinel. What do you all think I should do?
hold off slash is already outdated geo compared to current trends. Or just pick up a sentinal now its a great bike.

I don't know why anyone would ever buy a Trek with RE:aktiv. Those shocks are just complete garbage, they always break. Feel like ass and trek service is always slow.

lol, For what it's worth, never had an issue with the reaktiv shock; had the bike for like 9 mos, but didnt ride daily, 1-2x a week max. I was so close to getting a dhx2, good thing I didnt. The Patrol rides so differently and is just more comfortable to me. That knockbloc is the worst part on that bike.

This was my first custom mountain bike build and i wanted to try out a lot of stuff. I couldn't be happier about the results, full coil suspension is amazing.

Thoughts on that MRP coil? Is that one of their fancy progressive springs?

Anyone with a DPS on a Smuggler get it to feel ok? Or is it futile and just needs to be upgraded?

Hey folks, I just got myself a Transition Patrol. Stoked on it, but I'm having trouble getting the Fox suspension dialed (I owned Rockshox before this). The pressure guides for the fork seem pretty high; I've found I've had to go well below (10-15 PSI) the recommended starting setting in order to use most of the travel on the fork. I've also had to dial back LSC and HSC and rebound fairly aggressively. I've found the same for the rear shock; running it at body weight seems okay, but I've had to dial back rebound more than the initial recommended settings. Is this something others have experienced? Should I be running volume spacers rather than dropping the pressure as much as I have been? For context, I've been testing the suspension on some rowdy downhill, including bike park runs. Thanks for any help!
