    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. Itís OK without any contact.

    I believe ďthe bigger(diameter), the betterĒ.
    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.

    Love this thing more and more as time goes by, and have no desire for anything else.

    People probably think of fast trails with jumps and drops when the Riot comes up, but I think it's handling makes it great for rough, tight and twisty trails with no flats, too.

    It's the Rohloff XC/SS tensioner.
    As far as the suspension goes, I don't notice any bob, if that's what you're asking. The trail I ride most is so bumpy, the increased traction and impacts being soaked up by the rear suspension would far outweigh it, even if I did. Got some injuries that have turned the FS vs HT debate into riding vs not riding, so it's a moot point for me.

    Do you feel you need the chain guide as well?

    Iím in the early stages of researching FSSS , but some have mentioned getting the DH version of the Rohloff is better for chain tension.

    Yes I meant in terms of pedal bob.... I donít have any physical issues at the moment, but am thinking ahead that FS may extend my riding days. Being an SS lover Iíve always feared that going FS would be the end of SS, but this gives me hope.

    Need, no, but I'm ok with anything that minimizes chain slap and maximizes chain wrap. I've used that thing with both clutched and non-clutched derailleurs when running gears, too, so it's a habit.

    Are the Rekon 29x2.6 still working out for you? I just built up some i32 29" wheels and I'm looking at running the same tire. On the chainstays it looks like it is about the same as my 2.8 27.5's but in your pics it sure looks tight up to the front of the swingarm. Any issues?

    So, I'm not even really in the market for a new bike right now, but the Riot frame with the DVO Topaz for $999 is hard for me to pass up, especially since I'll be able to move over just about everything from my recent hardtail build over to it. I'm mainly unsure if I'll fit on a medium, which is the largest size left according to the website. I'm 5-10, around a 32 inch inseam. The hardtail I'm on has a slacker seat angle (74), but similar reach (438 on the Riot versus 435 on my hardtail), and the stack is 12mm higher on my hardtail. I'm not sure if the steeper seat angle will make the similar reach feel smaller? Anyone similar size to me on a medium?

    Yeah, 100% do NOT get the medium. Iím 5í8Ē as well and got the medium, and really wish I had the Large. Donít get me wrong, killer bike and love it quite a bit...but the longer wheelbase would have been ideal. I have a 50mm stem on my bike now which helps, but a Large with 35mm would now be better.

    Right on, thanks guys. Kind of thought so, I'm a bit cramped on my hardtail with the medium, so I figured the steeper seat angle would make that similar reach feel really cramped on the medium.

    I'm 5'6" and ride the small with a 45stem and set back post. If my terrain wasn't so peddly that a slacker STA works better in, I'd ride the medium.

    My measurements are the same as yours. Iím riding a medium with a 50mm stem. Iím super comfortable on it. Fits better then my med wreckoning. I could ride a large though.

    5'10", short inseam on a medium and it fits great with a 40mm stem and wide bars. I have the saddle slightly slid back so it's more like a 76deg effective seat angle rather than 77. You could size up, but then you lose some of the nimbleness and the ability to run a long dropper. This bike was made for fun, not for being as stable as possible.

    Yeah, I'm not looking for extra stability or anything like that. I just want to make sure the cockpit is roomy enough for me on a medium. Seems like its pretty split in here on sizing. Perhaps I should give them a call and see what they think.

    I'm exactly the same height on a medium with a 50mm step and 780mm bars. The fit is spot on for a trail bike. Not sure about my inseam, but the seatpost collar to saddle rails is 285mm and I'm running 175 cranks.

    Just completed all my (planned) mods. I sold my size small Ď16 raw Riot for an early Ď17 medium black Riot. Just built my first wheelset. Nextie i32 29Ē rims on DT 350ís and Sapim Laser spokes. Got them wrapped with Maxxis 29x2.6 Rekon tires. The fork started life as a 160mm 27.5 Fox 36 Performance. I swapped out the lowers for a set of 29 Factory lowers. I had a couple rides in with the 27 fork and B+ tires and Iím very happy that I sized up. Now I cannot wait to try out these stiff wagons and big tires!

    Very nice!

    I've been considering Rekon 2.6 at the rear either. How does it fit?

    Pretty well. It fit better than I thought it would. More chainstay clearance than my 27.5x2.8ís. The fit is tight to the swingarm as I suspected but itís not bad. Pretty wet in some spots on todayís ride and the mud wasnít a problem.

    Carbon rims are awesome. I also forgot how much I liked the Rekon as a front tire.

    New Goodyear 2.6" Escape tires on i29 rims are a fit. Probably not advisable if you are shooting a lot of mud through. 3mm on each side with about 2 between tire and frame.

    Thanks guys!

    I really like Rekon (plus) on another bike, but I generally dislike when tyre rubs the stays, even occasionally. Do you get any rubbing from Rekon?

    I reckon Goodyear might rub under power, no?

    I have only one quick 6 mile ride with the 29x2.6 Rekon and didnít have any tire to frame contact. Thereís about 3.5mm of space all around the tire. I had some mud build up but it sheds well. Never had any trouble with the plus Rekon either.

    Itís tight and I was surprised that there was no rub

    Damn..I get plenty of rub with 2.5 minions on the Canfield wheels, old school 26mm wide, I think... I'm on a 2.3 minion out back now just to avoid the rub, and I'm missing the bigger tire traction and cush for sure.

    Nice build, I like the forkasters as well, it doesn't pack up and works well early and late season when its wet or leafy. A DHR2 pairs well on the front with it.

    So what are your thoughts on the MRP Coil? Iím really trying to decide between the MRP, 11.6 and the DBCoil IL. What type of riding do you do?

    I like the MRP a lot. I wrote a lengthy post either here or in the other Riot thread about my shock experiences on this bike. I had a DB Coil IL also and it was also a very good shock. I just thought I was able to tune the Raze in better. I ride technical east coast tight fast woods with lots of roots and rocks some drops. Mix in a few park days a year too. For me MRP Raze handles everything from mild XC to DH quite well. I have no experience with the 11-6. If youíre thinking MRP their new Hazzard looks very interesting. Iím hoping their progressive spring will fit the Raze.

    I agree with Stumpy the Riot doesn't need a climb switch so no need to pay extra for it. Avalanche tunes the MRP if you want a custom tune. You want a shock that blows off HSC easily. The CC shocks tend to have an issue with that, needing service more often.

    Got an 11.6 for sale still. PM me if interested, but it's listed on the site. Have it setup with a flow setting and a DH setting. Climbs technical stuff best in the DH setting.

    Did you get the MAS2702 AM or DH versions, and how have they held up over this past year?

    AM layup- no issues to date. I don't ride in a lot of rocky terrain and don't get any big air, so you might want to consider the DH layup depending on where and how you ride.
