Rad!! Anyone have experience with this link on this or a Sentinel?? I am going to swap for a DHX2 as well. Any experience on the 2020 Scout??

I'm ordering one as we speak. I'm running a 205x60mm X2, so my rear travel should end up at 160mm, which conveniently is what my fork's travel is as well. Will post pics and impressions as soon as I have it in hand!

Rad - definitely be interested to hear your thoughts on the change in ride characteristics with the new link!

Transition seems to imply there was only two versions of the Scout (in carbon at least):

V2 was only made in aluminum so yeah there's only 2 carbon versions.

Ah, that'd do it then. Transition seems to consider them distinct models.

How did it change the bike?

Has anyone had a knocking noise coming from the shock area/rear end of their 2020 Scout when going over rough ground? GX build with Super Deluxe. I’ve wrapped cables, new pedals, wrapped chainstay, serviced dropper, different back wheel and changed all the bearings but no difference. Thinking it may be the shock but wondered if anyone else has had a similar experience and got to the bottom of it?

If you've had a good year of riding it could be the shock bushings need changing. Unless you've got bearings, then it won't be. Worth giving all the nuts and bolts a little torque up too.

It’s been there since the bike was new. I thought I’d be able to sort it but I’ve failed miserably. Trying to avoid sending the shock off as that means no bike but that looks like the final option.

Ah. Maybe try a little air side service, strip down, clean, regrease, rebuild. It's easy enough to do and doesn't take long. I don't know any specifics but if there's some kind of a top out bumper that's missing or failed this could cause knocking.

I’ve tried this too. Put a little bit of electrical tape over the piston to keep the travel reducer in place but it made no difference. Think it needs sending off. Thanks anyway
