Hey All
I'm currently riding a Stanton 4X for a play bike but, I had a bad crash on it an looking to replace with something full suss with a chunkier front end.
I've seen a DMR Bolt for good £, Mk2 short. thinking I could set it up single speed with a Marz 55 I have so it would be 125mm rear an 120/160mm on the front

any one have a set up like this or any opinios on the bolt. Any thing I should know/look out for
so far the only thing putting me off is the weight
cheers

Interested to know about these as well. Very tempted to get one as I want a short travel but strong bike (only really ride bike parks and to the pub) and this seems to be one of the only types out there - pretty much everything strong has 160mm travel or more now.

Nice! What drop outs were included?

Only got the geared. I am gonna get the SS soon. I like the gears but I wouldn't mind getting it sub 30lb, this is currently 32.5lb'ish
And the SS are about 1/4 inch shorter, which I also wouldn't mind

Aha, so SS dropouts are available? Their site only show QR and Through axle.
And to clarify, did it come with QR as the pictures on their site shows or with thru axle?

Mine has QR but, mine is the Mk1 they're on the Mk2 now

Posted: Feb 2, 2019 at 4:46 Quote
Okey. Note sure why anyone would want QR on a slopestyle bike... Or on any bike for that matter. Smile
