Slovenian site lacks a lot of stuff. Just order from SportR. They used German site when they ordered my bike.

Has anyone had any issues with chain damage to the chainstay? I’ve done five days riding and the chain has already chewed through the transparent plastic protector.

I noticed the plastic tape was cut through after 2 rides. Replaced it with marshguard slapper tape, no issues since.

I used Loctite Kintsuglue Flexible Putty on the chainstay, works perfectly. Seen some pictures around were chainstays have sevear damage, and that the stock delivered protection doesn't help at all.

I haven't notice any, but thanks for warning!
Has anyone tried new shock link?

My LBS told me yesterday that mine has been dispatched, so hopefully I'll have it within the next week.

How long did you wait for delivery?

They just told me that fastest delivery is in December.

I ordered it about a month ago, and was told mid October. My LBS told me on Monday that the linkages are being shipped earlier than planned due to a hold up on complete bikes because of a late delivery from DT Swiss.

Anyone here who knows the pantone color codes for Rallon in stock blue/mint green? Got a rock strike and it took good chunk of mint green on chainstay so I'd like to cover it. I contacted orbea support but got no response yet..

Shuro: I'm afraid you will have to check it yourself. I had to check it using RAL/pantone charts for my metallic orange one. just borrow ral chart from local paint shop.

Upgrading my 2018 x01 drivetrain to the new dub xx1 set up.

since the rallon bb is 73mm, i shouldnt need any spacer on the bottom bracket right?

also would a 34t fit on the rallon?


Did you get and answer on your bottom bracket? I’m installing a DUB XO1 BB and have the same question.

Yes, this is happening to me too. It's eaten all the way through to the carbon. Seems like a design flaw, I'm running a 34 tooth chain ring, should be enough clearance

Just picked up a Renthal Fatbar in 40mm rise and dropped the stem two spacers (stock bar is a 20mm rise). The plan was to keep bar height more or less the same and increase the effective reach, and that's exactly what has happened, the one thing that I was having trouble with was the slightly short (for me anyway) and this has definitely made it a little more comfortable for me.

Brake Cable Routing
Hi people -
any advice on getting a shimano Zee brake hose through the chainstay on my 2018 Rallon frame? I've just got the frame and it has come without brakes so no existing hose there to help me. The Zee connects to the caliper with a banjo bolt, which is crimped on and not removable, and too big to fit through the hole. So I have to feed it through the chainstay from the caliper (rear) end, which gives me a tiny exit hole to aim for, and I'm not having any luck. Any top tips? Cheers
