Hey Rallon Owners!

I am one step ahead to order a 2020 Rallon M10 or M20. I am just unsure about the size I need, therefore I would like to hear your opinion. Im pending between L and XL, I tried the L and it felt a bit short, not that much, just a bit... Wink - sadly I cant try an XL.

I am 184cm tall, 82cm step length and 60cm arm length.

Thanks!

A friend of mine is around the same height (not sure about the other measurements) and he rides an XL.

I´m 184cm

Go for XL, I rode an Orbea rallon in size L, for a year, I always thought it was small. I changed about a 2 weeks of orbea, in size XL I couldn't be happier. It was the best thing I did.

XL all the way

Thanks for your opinion, though its still very hard to decide, since in Enduro Magazine they said, that the lower size fits more to people that like to play with their bikes. Doing manuals, tight corners e.g.

Its really hard to decide and I know, that no one else can take my decision...

I'm 187cm, riding xl with 485 reach.I think i could ride even a bit longer bike without problems. Had jekyll 2015 with 458 reach before and was way too short for me.
I would recommend you go for xl, but if you have a chance do test both sizes!!

I'm around the same size as you and I ride a size XL, it fits perfect and really isn't that big when compared to XL frames from other brands. I think a size L would feel too short.

I stand at 1m 84cm as well, I’d definitely recommend the XL for you. If they made XXL I’d be riding it to be honest.

Hey guys I am assembling a rallon 19 frame, now looking to add the new linkage, I found an aftermarket one....
Anybody used it? It costs 100 gbp instead of 250 eur.

Saw these on ebay a while ago, would be interested to know what you think. I was also interested in whether it has the same dimensions as the genuine 2020 Rallon link.

Just tried my Rallon out with the new link from Ebay, does what it say's on the tin better small bump, climbing isn't affected and didn't use all the travel despite hitting some decent g-outs and a 4ft huck to flat. Running a CC double barrel coil on the bike.

Hello! Looking to upgrade the rear shock on my 2020 Rallon. Does anyone know which tune I should go for? Currently running the dpx2 and it doesn't give me the compliant and traction I'm looking for, so a coil is on the wish-list.
