Cheers guys i’ll get a 0 offset ring

How did this work out? Did you put regular DUB cranks (instead of DUB Wide) on the Slash? I'm keen to do the same, but worry the cranks will get super close to the chainstays if I do that.

There will be like 5-6mm clearence between the cranks and the stock chainstay guard on the drive side (depending on the crankarm thickness), non driveside will be even more, 1cm or so. The 0 offset ring will be closer to the chainstay, but also no issues with the clearence.

I put a DUB non-wide/standard crankset with 30T boost ring on my slash. I wouldn't call it "super close." More like very close. I bought a bunch of 1mm crank spacers to replace the stock spacers and get the chainring as close to the chainstays as possible. Been running it for months and no issues.

Seems like today is embargo lift day for the high pivot model, already on the official site:

Has someone of you guys broken a Line Elite wheel after the 2 year Carbon-Care period? How much was the replacement?

I don't about that. I don't think everyone is on board with the high pivot. I've been around long enough to see the high pivot come and go a few times. I'll be sticking with my Slash 8 for awhile longer.

Do you have some pictures of the setup? I've wanted to do this thing, but am not ready to pull the trigger yet.

How many tokens are people out there running in their super deluxe thrushaft? Just curious if one is enough with this much of a progression curve to cure harsh bottoms.

I'm running 1 token and high psi and it feels good on jumps and flow

another question, thinking about the RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate Coil, will it need a custom tune or is it adjustable enough

No it’ a all good! I’m running a 65mm shaft and just perfect!
