Anyone have any issues with the Bikeyoke dropper on the carbon Patrol frames? It seems the actuator is catching on something and jamming the cable (I have to run it pretty much slammed) but I can’t for the life of me figure out what it’s catching on down there...!

I had some problems with a 185 fully bottomed out. It needed to be raised about an inch for flawless operation.

Here’s some updated sentinel pics. I swapped over to a 170mm Marzocchi z1 up front and a Bomber coil on the rear. So far it feels quite a bit better than the RS stuff did.
How did you get the shock to fit?

There’s a company that makes custom sizes to fit a specific frame including the sentinel:

I bought a 205x65 shock and disassembled it and added 7.5mm spacer to the damper shaft to limit the travel. This is the same way that fox and RockShox make their 57.5mm stroke shocks

205 x 60 is also extremely common and the 2.5mm of extra stroke won’t compromise anything

wont compromise anything other than your warranty

Valid! there’s no clearance or fitment issues. Eye to eye is the same and the smidge of extra stroke just gives you a little more travel

This is not true on all frames. There may be some that have the seat tube clearance but mine definitely did not

Oh shit, I’ll shut up then. I apologize for the bad advice! I didn’t have any issues

What frame model do you have?

Ditto for me on my alloy smuggler in regards to a 55mm stroke with one offset bushing instead of the standard 50mm. My rocker totally contacts the seat tube before full travel.

Are these cracks on my lower shock mounts? Seems like a weird place to crack, are there any records of damanged shock mounts on transitions?
