    As it turns out the Paulís klamper is too big to run 180 so 160 it is. Thank you to all that responded

    Mostly the same here--although I could fit it, it was nearly impossible to adjust and get an Allen key into the bolts to tighten it down. I just put it back to a 160mm as well. FYI, I put on XT brakes and Shimano adaptor. I did run it for a day but couldn't get it adjusted quite right.

    I'm going back and reading past posts...maybe I'll see some answers to my questions...

    Who's running their EPO as 27.5+? Are you able to get a 2.8 tire in there?

    And...anyone put more than 140mm travel fork on their EPO? I have a 150mm Pike that I'd like to use if I got this frame...I know I can reduce the travel but if I don't have to that's a few bucks saved and a little extra travel to boot.

    I'm running 2.8s easy. Lots of room. Never tried a 3.0 tire as they are so draggy.

    Yeah...I'd probably go 2.8 max anyways. Maybe 2.6 rear and 2.8 front. I'm so close to pulling the trigger. I have all the parts (if I strip my Release 3) to build except I'd need a non-boost crank and I guess a new wheelset since what I have now is boost. That's really what's holding me back...that's another $400-$600 on top of the frame and crank.

    I'm told you can run a boost wheel in this frame....YMMV

    I read that but I'd be a little sketched out doing that. I guess it would work until I got another proper wheelset.

    Max width mine can 'clear' is nobby nic 2,8 in rear, but the tyre rubs when you ride hard in corners, so i made aluminium cs guards which work perfect... would reccomend to anyone running a big tire in the back...

    I tried 180mm and decided it wasn't worth the hassle; kept scratching the clear coat when trying to position the caliper. 160mm works just fine for everything here in VA.

    FWIW, and I know this was mentioned earlier in the thread, but I just swapped out the Maxle for an Ibis Hexle, which seems a lot less finicky. I broke the Maxle and it was hanging on for dear life.

    Which Hexle would I purchase if I'm running i9 Torch hubs and Shimano XT drivetrain on my EPO?

    I would guess the Shimano 142 version. The note about thread pitch is something I'm not familiar with and confusing.

    Yup. Shimano 142.

    The Hexle is great. Cheap, light, effective.

    SRAM Hexle is the one you want. It's the right length/thread pitch for the EPO dropouts.
