    What DH bikes have a 135mm rear hub spacing?

    I am looking into a new DH frame. I would like to be able to switch my wheelset from my FR bike over to the DH one. Anyone make a DH frame with a 135mm rear hub?

    Sinister R9.

    They'll do Freeride too. I think older Titus Supermoto DH models were 135mm as well. Not made any more, though.

    Not to mention the Transition has adapters that make using both 10mm and 12mm hubs acceptable!

    Very sweet Blindside, Is there a thread on you're build? How's the CCDB? I have one on my Bottlerocket...

    Chumba F5

    Chumba F5 - Although you would need to get your wheel dished a little to the right to compensate for the floating brake arm, it makes a much sturdier wheel.

    No thread on my build. Posted in the BlindSide thread.

    The CCDB is awesome. Haven't ridden this one yet really, but I also have one on my nomad and have logged a lot of single track/dh riding on and it's fantastic! How do you like it on your BR?

    Great damper... I had it on a Rocky Mtn Switch before, but bent that frame. I got the BR since everything but the seatpost and headset switched over nicely. I'm currently looking for a different frame because 5.5 inches isn't enough for me IMO. If the BR was a 6.5 inch bike, I woudn't let it go. The handling is spot on. Best bike for carving! Here's my thread:
