    Nice!
    Unfortunately I canīt travel my BOS Deville from 160 to 150mm. If I could I would go with a -1 or -1,5 deg angleset as well. So far keeping it with -0,5 or -1 deg ...

    Why are you guys going with shorter forks and angle sets? #ignorant

    Lower BB, longer reach, longer wheelbase, steeper seat angle, slacker head angle. Apart from the slacker head angle, the changes are just like on the 2016 version. I'm also running 26" dropouts with 27.5" wheels for shorter chainstays.

    Aiiiiight Sir - so do I.
    Plus: Itīs not about the quantity of travel, but the quality of it.

    Hi, what tune do you run on your rear shock?

    My DbInline is crap (hooping for warranty, but do not look good), looking to replace, but CCDB Air is quite expensive, the RS RC3 seems more affordable

    You need a M/L tune for the spitty. But without debonair can, i had a DA M/L tune and it felt much too slow and unsensitiv and gone too fast through its travel. So i filled the aircan with spacers and the shock was more crappy than before

    Thanks for the info.
    We are talking about this one, just to be sure https://www.sram.com/rockshox/products/monarch-plus-rc3
    I have not, so far, found it without debonair (is it really an option?) and all I see has M/M.

    To add another question, is CCDB Air worth the money? And is it that much better and more reliable then DbInline, I kind of lost my trust for CC there.

    In the meantime I run with a RS Monarch R HV :-D

    has anyone ridden a spitfire and a Transition scout? how do they compare? I currently have a Scout but I want to change it to possibly get a new spitfire. I really like how playfull and agile the scout feels but want something a little more forgiving on bigger hits. Thanks.
