    Were you able to find hardware that was the exact size down to the first decimal point?

    For the life of me, the closest i can find is 19mm and 42mm.

    Cheers.
    I wouldn't worry about it too much. 19mm and 42mm will be fine. Think of how small .1 and .2mm is.

    Hi Guys,

    I just got a 2014 Dixon last week, and have been shredding every day since. I'm going to post my review soon, but had a question about sag first.

    Are you guys running 25% or 30% sag on this bike?

    I was running 30 the first few days, then emailed Devinci to ask what there recommendation was. They told me 20-25%.

    I rode it today at 25, and wow it's a rocket at that setting. It doesn't feel as settled entering corners, but it rockets out of them. I've never had a bike with such good mid-stroke support that I can pedal so easily out of berms.

    I like the tune on the Float X, I think they nailed it. Sadly, it came with air in the damper out of the box. Dammit Fox! Seems like it is leaking a little damper fluid from the ctd lever, though this could just be residual from assembly. Probably going to warranty and sell, getting the 2014 RC3+, which I know shreds.

    anyone who has swapped out their fox shock, looking to do a monarch+ , my question is can you use the same mounting hardware/spacers?

    You can't use Rockshox bushings with the spacers that came with Fox Igus bushings, they will be too thin.

    If you have the older pre-Igus Fox, you should be good. You can also swap the entire 5 piece Fox Igus assembly to the Rockshox product, which is working fine for me.

    Bolts and reducers should be compatible across all systems.

    I have a 2011 Dixon. I had a 150 revelation on it but now that fork is gone. I can get a vanilla 36 160 for a good deal. From what I've read, that should give me a hta of 65.9 and a higher bb. Does anyone have some feed back from going to a 150 to a 160? Is the handling affected by the higher bb? If I switch the chip around in the back, will that give me a hta and bb height close to my original set up?
