Nope. But what's this about a custom EXT spacer?

Any word on a Cascade link that’s Push 11.6 compatible? Other option is to have a custom machined spacer similar to the EXT adaptor made by Pinner Machine shop, but I’m hoping Cascade would have something more broadly compatible in the works.
I will say wait to see what forbidden have in the works for the dh team with their custom link. Will probably be cheaper than cascade, wont void warranty and most likely will fit coil shock.

I had no idea somebody came up with a solution for the EXT and cascade link compatibility issue. Thanks for sharing.

Push works up to a 400lb spring I believe

Dreadnaught ziggy vs insurgent MX ? I can’t decide…. Also putting same question in evil forum.

I’ve owned and ridden both. I prefer the dread.

Does anyone run their Dreadnought without the lower chain guide pulley? Seems to be a bit of a target for rocks/logs and gets easily bent, rubbing against the back tire. I assume the chances of the chain jumping off the chainring are much higher without it. Are there other options for an aftermarket lower guide that is less likely to bend all the time? Cheers

Cascade’s lower guide is pretty solid, much less drag without the lower pulley on the e13 guide. Bashed it a couple times so far but still looks good

Another potential option with a little more retention perhaps:

Thanks man! Oval compatible, I am buying one! There is so much drag and noise from the e13 roller on this bike!

Thank you for sharing this! I just ordered one.

Their link (+other changes) nets them 180mm travel. I was told no plans to release the link to the public as a number of other changes are needed to get that. Didnt say what the other changes were, but Im guessing a modified ziggy and probably offset bushings or something of that ilk.

Being able to get more travel out of my dread while keeping my RS SD coil would be fantastic but sounds like its never going to happen

You can do it, I did it by machining a custom spring plate. I also machined about 1mm out of the inside of the cascade link.

Installed the cascade lower guide. There isn’t any noticeable drag anymore… much nicer to pedal around and climb. Time will tell if the chain hops off or not. I’ve had mine hop off twice on the LG1 but also hit it a few times, causing it to bend and rub the rear tire. Not cheap but definitely an upgrade
