Shock bolt torque , anyone got any ideas. Not in the manual. Sounds a bit creaky , want to regrease everything .
it is missing in the exploded diagram of the spindrift, but in the exploded diagram of the Tyee it says 18Nm...so draw you own conclusions. Smile

Propain have said 8nm. Which was lower than expected

Interesting. I would expect more to.

Dropped a spacer on the stem 5mm. Feels better weighted at the front now.

Im running the zen at 70 psi 7 clicks from slow on rebound. I click of hsc and 2 clicks lsc.

Coil 2 clicks hsc , 4 clicks from slow and anout 28/30 % sag
Thats about 2.5 turns of preload on the spring

Im around 91-92 kg fully kitted up.

Anyone got any input on some things to try. Front feels a bit harsh , coil is feeling better .

Running 21 psi front tyre and 23 psi rear with rimpact inserts

I found the front end abit harsh with the Zeb's and run a shock Wiz for two days in finale and basically had the fork set up way to stiff for what I thought. After some fettling with the settings according to the shockwiz it feels better now. I would also be interested to try some for these buttercups from rs as they are ment to take out some of the harshness although you do have to buy the charger 3 damper assembly and the debon air shaft with the buttercup attached.

I`m about 90kg kitted. I found the zeb too harsh on the recommended pressure settings.
Currently running 62 psi (20% sag), hsc/lsc fully open, rebound 7 clicks from slow.
Runs smooth this way with plenty support and bottom out resistance.

Unfortunately my charger damper is blown so waiting for a replacement.

I got question.
I want to build Spindrift with Shimano derailleur.
So I will buy a Frameset but I know the hanger is SRAM UDH(by default) , the question is:
Will this do the job

SRAM UDH(universal derailleur hanger) is a hanger which more and more bike manufacturers use on their bikes.
The idea is that when all bikes use the same derailleur hanger it`s a piece of cake to find a replacement in case it breaks.

A Sram UDH accepts all brand of derailleurs. A Shimano derailleur bolts straight on and there is no need to buy a different hanger.

Bearing press

Anyone recommend a bearing press for the spindrift AL?

I used the enduro bearing press to change my frame bearings a few weeks ago, worked a treat. A bit pricey but I borrowed it from work so all good. Unior tools make a pretty decent one too with a quick release on it so you don't have to wond the thing in and out all the time. Not sure on price but have used it in the past and also works great.

I'd like to have some feedback from those who transformed the 29" to mullet simply swapping the rear wheel with a 27.5".
Feelings, feedback, inputs?
