I assume the RS stands for Rockshox since that build comes with the Pike.

What crank and chain did you use?

RaceFace SixC Cinch and KMC K1SL

The K1SL is a good option indeed.

I’m constantly having issues with pedals on mine.

Installed a set of old Race Face Aeffect from other bike and right pedal destroyed the crank thread.

Now I put on a set of brand new Truativ Descendant and same problem but on the left. I have to be constantly checking if pedals are tighten.

The bike is great but this is a bit annoying.

I’ll be moving from the Spank 33 wheels too. Driver system and thick BMX chain is a no go for me

Anyone with a Absolute in Large or Medium frame able to do me a favour and measure from the bottom bracket to where the handlebars would cross the stem (RAD if you follow Lee likes bikes videos). Like in this video at the 7 minute mark - https://youtu.be/rHagRovHSYs

Hey guys,
I just build a 2021 commencal absolut. My rear wheel is not center in the frame, the rear wheel dish is perfect. Anyone got same issue? Cheers

Just installed some Zee cranks on my 2021 absolut with 30t chain ring.
To maintain a good ratio,I need to change the 11t NOVATEC rear sproket to a 13 one. I didn't find any way to dismount this sproket so I tried to found a new novatec free hub body with a 13 sproket but without sucess. Eek



Did you resolve this?Also want a larger sprocket.

Posted: Jul 9, 2021 at 7:38 Quote
That sprocket/freehub body is definitely one piece. Novatech can be difficult to contact, but you will need them to get you a new 13 tooth freehub driver.

Are the wheels tubeless ready?

Yes, I have mine setup tubeless on the standard wheels and tires.

Just out for curiosity, why would you use tubeless in a dirt jump bike?
