Is that for a straight steerer downhill fork or does it work with a tapered one like a 38? Not much clear info on commencal site

You can tell it's for tapered because there's no step-down on the bottom bearing.

It's for straight steer tube. The step down is actually the crown race. Use a CC 1.5in race from the standard tapered fork.

I never thought I'd say this but if you're in the UK and need a headset for your Tranny with 56mm cups then Superstar components make one with seals. Previous purchases of from them have felt pretty budget, but the sealing on this headset is akin to Hope headsets. And it's less than £40.

Anything has gotta be worth a shot as this FSA is garbage in UK conditions. You got a link mate?

Ordered a DHX2 for my Spire. What springs are you guys running on the DHX2?
I‘m around 90 kg ready to ride.

84 kg running a 450lb spring and getting 27% sag. Works good almost everywhere. Just got ahold of a 425 spring and gonna give that a try when I get home from Squamish, I never feel bottom on the 450 and am wonder if the 425 gets me closer to 30% and maybe a little plusher

I'm running a 500-550 Sprindex and have it set at 525 currently. Not ever feeling bottom either, but already super plush.

My riding weight is about 220lbs or 100kg

Anyone in the states planning on selling a carbon Spire in small? I've been waiting nine months for mine and just got pushed back to July, starting to lose my mind here!

Looks like Transition might have a purple one in stock on their website.

Yeah did see that, but unfortunately made the short sighted decision to sell my Scout months ago, so need a complete!

Hey, anyone running a large spire at 5'9" or 176cm or so? Ones come up GX build. Can't really test ride. But I wanted longer reach than the medium as that would make it my shortest reached bike.
Cheers

I’m about 178cm and run a large spire. Big bike but fits well.
