    sure, thanks - so the internal width of 142x12 and 135x12 are the same, and the difference is thickness of the dropout? I think they must be as I am using 142x12 hub adapters. anyway the bike rides good.

    for the record, the end of the 135x12 is flush with the threaded part of the DS slider and winds in fully so the head is flush on the NDS. If anyone has a few mm of axle sticking out on DS, you have the wrong axle.

    lol if you're going to have rotor burn scares, they may as well be pretty ones

    yeah they stop me fine, and are light.

    Those are origin8 ashima rotors. They are fantastic stoppers and light to boot.

    And they leave a sweet scar. I have that same pattern on my right calf

    Funny you mention it. I have a couple Strava segments I have been trying to blow away with my Yelli, which is geared. Set my records on the single speed Nimble 9 and I can't even touch those times with the Yelli. lol

    They don't make me weak. They make me lazy.

    Got my chrome nimble 9 last Thursday, still waiting for a couple components. I also got confused on the rear axle size, I had emailed them saying they had sent the wrong one but got a nice explanation that 135x12 was correct. I'll be running mine 1x10.

    Correct. You will get a 135x12 thru axle. This will fit correctly and give you 142mm rear spacing.

    Yes, the 135x12 Maxle is correct. But I think your hub has to be converted for 142x12 spacing. I'll know for sure later this week, at least for stan's ztr hubs.

    Hub must be 142x12.

    correct, 135x12 Maxle, 142x12 Hub. (For my Hope Pro 2 Evo the adapters are known as 'X12' - they have smooth ends, whereas the 135x12 adapters, which won't work, have serrated ends)

    Seat post slippage issues

    4 rides, > 150km, in and I'm still getting a lot of seat post slippage problems. I'm running an XFusion HiLo dropper and a Thomson clamp tightened to the max. I've used fibre grip and reset it many times, have resorted to setting it overweight and using the dropper to raise the saddle as the post drops, at least I get 20 mins without having to get off the bike that way.

    Anyone got any suggestions? Different clamp? (There don't seem to be many at 29.8mm).

    Ta.

    My friend's 2014 N9 also had a loose seat tube. My 2013 N9 is the opposite... Tight like a... Well you know... Can you use tape or something else on the lower part of the post to fill the gap?

    Had a similar problem with my Yelli. Fancy beer can shim solved my issues.

    He's using a cheap Diety clamp. I think the beer can shim is your best bet.

    How many of you are getting seat post slippage on the 2014 frames? I'm building up a chrome and wondering if it's just with the chrome.
