Shock Hardware 21.8mm x 8mm Top, 47mm x 8mm Bottom
Hammer Link shock mount bolt 45mm x 8mm
Hammer Link shock mount bolt 65mm x 8mm

This maybe bit late answer, but thought that if they are gone and done it would be nice to have this information stored somewhere

Anyone every ride the Deity Crypkeeper? I have one now and am thinking of changing to the Edit 1. Was curious what people thought.

Just cracked my Edit one, this is my second BLK market now. this one failed due to poor weld penetration on the headtube junction. I am upset as I've put very few rides on this bike. I am now waging a chromag Monk vs. DMR Sect. the dmr has got a wicked pricepoint.

I found that my Killswitch works great with a 130mm fork. Makes it more Slopestyle.


Shorter fork (80/100):


Longer fork (130):

building up an older mob, originally planning on keeping the build all American but might just go for hope hubs instead of profile, would this be sac-religion?

I ran Hope hubs on my second Edit 1. I think what's important is that they weren't made in China.

Just curious how do you guys run the rear shock on your killswitch? Do you like pump it up so its really stiff or do you follow the reccomended spec for your weight?

Personally I am 70~ Kg and I run the shock with between 200-225psi. I find this gives a good responsive and supportive ride.
Coupled with the compression adjustment on the XFusion o2 rcx this pressure range caters to many different aspects of riding that I enjoy. Fully on the - side and it's stiff as you like, click it to + and it's nice n bobby.
So its known I have also packed some of the air chamber of the shock with quite a heavy grease, somewhat acting as a "volume spacer" of sorts.

I've also tried much lower and higher pressures but for me and my style that is the range that suits

I’m starting a Killswitch build and I thought I’d share the progress.

Almost the entire build has been sourced from PB, but I’m still waiting on some stuff to arrive.
Here is a link to the build album which I’ll be updating as it moves along.
