Got my Slash AL built, still waiting on the new Line Elite wheelsets to come back in stock so I stole the wheels off my old Slash lol. Praying for rain so the air quality will stop being the worst in the world and the trails will re-open so I can ride her!

That thing is beautiful... Trek should've made the blue fade AL frames come with a silver logo. Looks mint.

Had a friend make the stickers as I just did not like the redish orange logos. Big Grin

Can we run a dropper longer than 170 in the Large size?

Yes you can. Max insertion is 260mm on a Large Slash frame.

Is there already a company that offers frame protection sets (transparent) specifically for the new Slash?

Hows everyone goin with suspension setup? Using the recommended settings? More pressure? Less?

So I got to take the beast for a ride this weekend, sadly just an XCish ride since all our party trails are closed due to fires. Bike climbed really well for a 34lb 170mm enduro rig! The Fox 38 is amazing!
I did however have some creaking under heavy pedals and big hits. I had greased and torqued the main pivots but I did not do the ABP. After pulling them apart I think its the new Sram universal derail hanger. I noticed a bit of wear on it already. Greased and torqued and did a few sprints in the street all is quiet but it will be a few days till I can confirm. But if you end up taking your bike in be sure the shop does the ABP.

I went with the recommend setting from the suspension set up site, but upped the pressre by 5 PSI out back. (running a 38 up front)

The recommended settings for me (98kg) are pretty spot on for all-rounder, but ive softend both slightly to deal with my local high speed chatter, (includes some small drops and wooden jumps that i downside, one jump is to flat but not that big and i probably use 85% travel.)

so in basic terms im probably 24-25% sag in the fork and 34-35% sag in the rear, this is for my local trails only and will go back up in pressure when i take it to the big stuff like the park.

I rode both of my 2019 and 2021 slash's back to back(with recommended settings) the 21 is better in everyway except i seem to be getting sore hands when climbing, something i loved about the 19 was the more rear seated pos.
