I've just bought a 2018 alloy V1 Sentinel frame (Size L) from the classifieds, i'm looking at getting the Cascade link and an EXT Storia for the rear to compliment the Smashpot coverted 160mm Zeb Ultimate i've got coming. Excited to get this built up after loaning a Smuggler from my mate for a few weeks and loving it.
I just need to know if the EXT is going to work with the cascade link/frame - i saw that the DVO coil has clearance issues. Will be stock size 205 x 57.5. Anyone on here have an EXT with the link?

Most clearance issues come up with the carbon frames due to the shape of the downtube. I took some paint off my carbon patrol with an ext and link but the alloy frame would have cleared.

Has anyone had a sentinel V2 on order and it keeps getting delayed… ordered mine in September of 2020 and it’s been delayed 4 separate times. I usually don’t sell my old bikes but was recovering from a spine injury, already had a shipping confirmation date after the order through my shop and figured I’ll sell my V1 sentinels while the market was hot! Now I’m bikeless

I’m needing a new rear rim so I threw on a 26” stans, it’s way lighter! Good idea or will I die?

Death is definitely imminent haha. Those Scouts look like a ton of fun.

What about pedal strike? I think with 26 it drops the some milimeters

I have a 2020 Transtion Scout . I was wondering if anyone ran a Marzocchi Bomber CR coil on theirs or had any issues with fitment?

Hi all, is there any experience here, 2019 Scout equipped with 160 fork? i am happy with 150 right now, but if that not a bad idea, i am planning to purchase 160mm fork for my future bike earlier, and temporarily put on Scout.

i am trying to scroll the thread, and it was already a pain half way of hundreds pages!

My XL fits a bomber CR with no problems, but there may be issues in other sizes. It does get close.

I bought my Scout with a 170mm Lyrik already fitted, rides great I doubt you will have any issues running a 160 especially since it’s just temporary.
