    I have some WTB Asym i35 rims on blue Hadley hubs, calling for the black frame with blue link. Lot's of other parts too, but deciding on what fork and shock to get. My friend has the MRP, love's it. DVO has the new Sapphire but it's boost only. Trying to keep under 30#. gears will be 2x11 XT8000 and brakes.

    The frame is not 2x compatible. Drop the XT cassette and go with a Sram GX and save a bunch of weight.

    here's my build... few carbon bits like wheels (derby), crank (raceface), and bar (cromag). canfield pedals, hope race evo e4 brakes and i forgo the dropper post for a paul clamp. the logic behind this is that i save weight and i don't adjust my seatpost height that much. it is either up or down.

    Nice build. My Derby wheels have been great on my Balance. So building a Riot with them too. I would get a dropper with remote. Extra weight be damned. I use it so much for everything. Makes you ride your bike different. Only time it's up is long pedaling sections, long climbs or resting my legs. Everywhere else it's out of my way and I can ride it like a bmx bike.

    Agreed. Especially with the steep seat tube, dropping the seat just an inch or so helps with flat twisty trails.

    Wow... Man, I'm having no problems with my DB Coil IL, but that is scary!!! Was there any warning of any kind? Not that it should matter but what terrain were you riding when this occurred?

    No warning - this happened at the base of a big table top, so fortunately I rolled in a heap to the lip, rather than this happening when I landed, which probably would have hurt quite a bit.

    This is the warranty upgrade I got after my DbInline blew, I was pretty happy with it, but this is a total confidence killer.

    The spring gouged my frame pretty good as a result...awesome.

    Glad you didn't get hurt, my first thought was " that had to hurt!"

    Ouch! Was that a Gen1 frame by chance?

    What failed on the shock? Trying to see what broke. Did the the rear eyelet brake off?

    A quick update on the Shockpocalypse and answer a few questions:

    - Yes, it's a first gen Riot. Shouldn't matter, though.

    - The shock failed at the damper shaft, where the shaft meets the lower eyelet.

    Now, a quick word on customer service - I said Cane Creek, never again. That's not really true. I was mad when I posted because I walked out of the woods with a crazy failure, and while I'm not happy to be on my 3rd shock in 2 years, Cane Creek CS has been fantastic.

    When I blew my DbInline, they were all over it, offered me a cheap upgrade to the DBCoilIl that just self destructed. This time, they're again making everything right, letting me drive the process with what I want, 100% upfront with the fact that they owe me one, and really working to make me happy. It isn't canned customer service scripts, it's a real guy (Joseph), who rides, and knows what a hassle and disappointment this is and wants to help me. I really appreciate it.

    The Bros are, of course, the Bros. I've been talking to Sean because I mentioned frame damage...

    Now, the plot thickens. You can see in the pic I posted how the spring end is resting on the little tube that runs across the lower pivot castings - the spring gouged that tube. Sent the bros a pic, they comiserated but Lance confirmed that tube is super thick and I was good to ride. Great news.

    This afternoon I was tearing the bike down to clean it up, replace the shift cable with the shock took out, and give it a general tune up so it'd be in fighting shape when my new shock arrived. I found more damage.

    The yoke/web that stiffens up the rear triangle collided with the seat tube and buckled it - more pics to the Bros and they'll get back to me.

    All around, a bummer, but Cane Creek stands by their product and legitimately is working hard to make it right for their customer (me), and the Bros are all over this as well, making sure I'm happily and safely Rioting away ASAP.

    The customer service is one of the reason that I run both products. Both companies have gone above and beyond for me before. Unlike two others, that I yeti to mention because it is such a specialized marketplace and there is always fan boys.

    Classic! But you can't forget how rough the Rock Mountains are if you're Kona talk about broken frames with zero after purchase support.
