    Question for Rush 2000 owner

    I have a new Rush 400 and I swapped the part from my Scalpel 2000. My Rush is now a 2000 !

    I have two problems. I don't know how many spacers to put between the external bearing (of the crank) and the bottom braket shell. How many spacers on each side ?

    Also, what is the lenght of the rear hose brake ?

    Thanks

    If it is now a 2000 it will have an XT crank. Follow Shimano's recommedation.

    With 2 spacers on the drive and 1 on the non-drive you will get a 50mm chainline w/ your 68mm bb shell.

    Not quite a Rush 2000

    You might be missing one important part of a Rush 2000:

    The RP3 shock!

    The 400 has a budget shock compared to the stock 2000 RP3.

    How does the rp3 shock ride matched to the r7 fork on the 400?

    I had a Lefty on my Rush 400 (pseudo 2000). The Rush 400 with Manitou Radium shock is stiff on small bumps. My Scalpel with RP3 have better absorption of small bump.
