    Is there any consensus on DVO Topaz shock setup? I.e. volume reducer bands and such? What are people running? Is there a good place to start the tune?

    Call up DVO and ask. They are more than willing to help and give you some pointers.

    Slides right in like it was spaced for a boost hub. Dropped in my standard 142mm hub and there was lots of slop.

    That's what the "experts" say but the only reason I went with a boost hub on the Riot is because that is the wheel I have that is not currently on something else.

    Office was closed on Friday for construction, so after a grueling 1/2 day of working from home, I took my emotional support animal for a ride.

    Recon2.6 with i32mm rim.
    Teravail with this rim is no go again, due to touch to non-drive side chainstay.

    Yes, it is 29 one. It’s OK without any contact.

    I believe “the bigger(diameter), the better”.
    minimalized chainstay, maximized tire size, what a perfect bike!

    So, the "Teravail" is a no go but the "Rekon" is good to go on that same rim? I was considering something like this for the Nimble 9...Probably need carbon rims to avoid the flex/rub.

    I put my old Pike on the Nimble and bought the 2018 Pike and a roll of orange vinyl for some custom decals. Yeah, a bit over the top...Supposedly less need for tokens and a slightly better small bump with the new Charger 2 cartridge.

    Between a broken collar bone and a newborn at home, it's taken me 3 months to finally build this beast up. After her maiden ride, all I can say is wow!

    This is the terrain I ride in on the Big Island of Hawaii. Young island geologically so we hardly have any dirt. A lot of rooty, technical lava.
    How does the Riot ride?
    Dang! Best bike I've ridden in this type of terrain so far.
    Rear stays planted at speed, bike doesn't do anything funky like wander off line, climbs great so far.
    Combined with the 29 wheels rolling over everything like a Monster truck.

    Yes it is, and NN2.6 also fit as here knows. I felt if TeraVail has perfectly straight(no twist) quality, it may possibly...
    I carefully tried bead-up twice with soap but slightly twisted when rolling the wheel.
