Anyone riding with a 62.5mm stroke shock for longer rear travel option on the 2020 Scout? Comparisons to the Bronson?

Oh that sounds interesting. Is this a thing?

Yep! From the Transition Scout page: “It is also possible to install a longer, 205mm x 62.5mm stroke shock, to increase the rear wheel travel to 150mm”

You can actually take the 205x57.5 and remove internally The travel spacer and you will get 205x62.5. No need to buy a new shock.

Sweet! Anyone figure out how to peel off the black label on the shaft of the FloatX2 Performance to reveal the Kashima coat underneath? Razz

Anyone on a new Scout that's also had/have a current gen Patrol to compare to? I had an older Scout which I liked, and the Patrol is mint, but the new Scout seems almost Patrol-like in capability, nearly as much squish and almost identical geo with much snappier pedaling... from what I've read... Can anyone offer a comparison from riding both?

[Quote="jamesdippy"]Scouters. Disaster struck!

Just cracked my seatstay on 2015/2016 scout grrr

Hi I snapped my alloy 2017 non drive side seat stay twice in the same place on the weld above the brake mount. Transition's UK distributor changed it both times but blamed me for running Zee 4 pot brakes! Bit cheeky as I only ran a 160mm rotor and there is no info from transition stating their frame was not suitable to run with 4 pots.
I switched to XT 2 pots anyway and eventually to a 2017 carbon scout same geo and no welds to snap.
Good luck and congrats

Johnny this is brilliant advice! Funny thing, mine has snapped EXACTLY where yours has and guess what brakes I’m running...zees!

Over this ‘lockdown’ I have been practicing wheelies /back wheel hops loads and as you can imagine, snatching the brake hard a lot more than general trail riding. I reckon this has aided toward the cracking.

I might either follow suit and go single pots or downsize the rotor from 180-160. Might be less of a lever.

Thanks again for your input -

Oh and tranny has sorted me some stays on the way for £135. Not too bad and cheap way to get riding again.

I did. For my type of riding I went back to the stock can.

Stock can felt better to me. I tried a lot of different spacers and setups. I feel like there’s enough midstroke support as is.
