    I've also my decals from nldesigns. Quality is ok, but for fork and shock I would prefer slik graphics (same price, better material and quality). Bummer that they don't update their transition frame decal line.

    Thanks man. I was surprised that Fox's stock settings are so open.
    I ended up with settings that are very close to yours with LSC at 12.
    This shock is definitely very active and supple feeling for sure.

    Push would have the medicine, but you should really have deep pockets.

    Didn't you ride a Scout before?
    If you did, it would be great if you could make a short comparison.
    It would be great if you could comment on general efficiency and "playfullness"

    I ride a Scout and I'm very happy with it. Now that (both) are soon out in carbon I want to upgrade but slightly conflicted between the scout and patrol. I know I dont "Need" the patrol for most of my riding, but I like having a very forgiving bike.

    So is the patrol "playfull" enough for tame trails? Like could the rear be set quite firm for poppyness without ruining the ride?

    I know this question is more suited for another topic, just trying to hijack you Jeremy

    Yes, I had a Scout and it was my favorite bike I have owned in 22 years of mtbing. That said, the carbon patrol honestly feels better everywhere. I was not surprised that it felt better on rough stuff, but was blown away by how light, fast, and efficient it is everywhere. My bike with a rigid post weighed in at 26.9 and it was 27.7 with the dropper. It seems to be a combination of the light carbon frame, the geometry, and the overall suspension especially with that x2 shock, but this bike just carries speed everywhere. Sections of trail that I know, like a rooty straightaway into a corner, I am having to watch because the bike flies over roots so fast, I am going into the corner much quicker. Compared to the Scout, it just feels more stable and faster everywhere even in corners where the scout was excellent. But the main thing I like about it is how poppy it is. The main trait I like in a bike is liveliness. Too many old hand and shoulder injuries, so I need a bike that is easy to get off the ground and put where I want it on the trail, and the patrol is excellent at this. All that said, I am going to ride it right now. : )

    Nope. Right now I don't feel like I need it. I am running my settings in the middle of the range which is way different that fox's open standard settings. Setup like this, it rides well everywhere and I have not had to touch it since.

    Thank you for the reply. +1 rep.

    Could you expand/comment on the following:
    You mention the main thing you like is how "poppy" it is... how would you compare that part to the scout? Most e-bikers and logic say that the scout is more poppy/playful because of less travel etc.
    I dont have any problem giving away a bit of "poppyness" for increased confidence, but not too much. Dont want a tank on calm trails.

    You say it's better everywhere, how about pedal efficiency on tame trails?

    And how do you like the 65 HA on twisty stuff?

    I'm sorry to bomb you with questions, It's just rare to be able to hear opinions from people who rode both the scout and the patrol so hope you can give me some insights before I make my decision.

    I'm also quite a heavy guy at 220+ lbs so I feel the rear on the scout lacks abit when I push it.

    As far as poppyness, all I can tell you is that on my carbon patrol in its current setup, it leaves the ground even easier than my scout did, and loading up the suspension for jumps, and this bike just flies.
    You asked about pedaling on tame trails, while you will get more movement than on your scout, it still pedals great, and climbing over roots and bumps even on tame trails, it just motors over them.
    As far as head angle, I was already running a 150 36mm, and I am used to slack head angles from DH. To me the 65 HA suits this bike perfect, and the steep seat angle puts you in a really good climbing position. IMO, Transition knocked it out of the park on this one.

    Jeremy what's your weight and your setup on the Fox fork?

    I'm running an RC4 w/ti coil on the rear of mine. The back is awesome. The fork I struggle with though. I may sell it.

    Good question. I am still playing with air pressure on mine too. I weigh 180, and I am only running like 60 psi in the fork. With a few clicks of LSC and HSC wide open. And rebound almost open as well. The fork feels pretty good, but not nearly as good as the back.

    I weigh 185-190#, and I find the fork to be harsh as shit no matter what the air setting. Mine also came with no oil in the lowers too, so there's that. I've tried 60-80psi, and I've settled around 75-77psi. If it's going to be harsh, I'm at least going to have it not bottom out.


    What springrate are people settling on for the coil rear shocks at this weight? I'm on a 400#.

    Have you added volume reducers to the fork? Try adding one Orange reducer underneath the Blue on the fork comes with. This will significantly increase beginning stroke sensitivity and create more progression.

    Yup, I've got one blue, one orange. Still bottoms on occasion. Part of it is my arms have to be so locked up when riding the front end on high frequency shit that I end up pushing it to bottom unintentionally through stuff it shouldn't.

    I think the bushings were just buggered up from the start. Got a Lyrik coming this week to run while I send back the Fox.

    I'm about 175 with 3 orange 1 blue, 70psi, 2 in from open HSC, 12 in from open LSC, 15 in from open rebound.
    That's after being around the houses of all sort of combinations, find it's not harsh, doesn't bottom, good support, fast!

    funny, I'm about 175p (equipped), running the one factory spacer in the 36er FIT4, 20-22% SAG, only 4-5 clicks LSC from full open and I've bottomed out only once (pumped on the trail where I should pull...).
    Usually I have .5 inch travel left- no matter how hard I land on the front. Decreasing the pressures results in more SAG -> all over 22% is way too soft.
    Increasing the LSC (when decreasing pressure) results in more arm pump - proportionally. Think I could also remove the last spacer.
    Just out of curiousity: how do you guys bottom out that often (with having your fork stuffed with so many spacers)? :-)

    Hi - I'm thinking of buying a patrol carbon frame, but I read a review on pink bike that it had bad chain slap. Is this true? I hate noisy bikes😀

    170mm is fine, for 180mm there's no approval from TR.

    Loving my new patrol Carbon 2 I got! Replaced my stumpjumper Carbon 29 and blows doors off it. Never expected this bike to ride and pedal like it does in my normal XC type trails I expected to have it sit, now don't know why I don't ride it daily. That said curious some tuning some have done with monarch. I enjoyed it right off bat. Now tinkering. I am 170 let's say riding weight. I got 35% sag for first few rides and that's with 2 air bands from factory. Noticed I got through full travel pretty easy and my trails are tame even me playing around wherever I could.

    I went to 3 bands now in shock. First ride was weird actually felt to stiff yet I do think I ended up with 30% sag. So might try one more time at 35%. Hoping it holds mid stroke better and keeps more pedal friendly small bump absorbing. Yet still be stout and ready for a big hit or long decends.

    Any advise? Am I going wrong way with these bands in shock? Is going down to 1 from initial ride be more what I'm looking for?

    As for fork 0 tokens suck. No small bump just stiff even dropping low to get 20% or even 25 I tried. But I. I get go 1-2 tokens I loved them in all my 140mm/29 forks. (Ran 4)

    I have ~ same riding weight and have tried (on patrol) "everything" from 0 bands to 4 (not more).
    When having 2 bands it felt most balanced to me though I thought I bottomed out regularly in park (4-5mm left beneath red ring): So I've added two bands but then with 35% I had the feeling that the mid support has decreased. I went back to two bands and checked the remaining space beneath the red ring when all air has been released - it's 1-2mm before bottom out (not 4-5mm as I've thougth before - there was always some noise from the rear after flat out& co).
    Have you checked your full travel? Please ming that the last remaining mm on the rear travel are pretty progressive so even when you think you use the travel to easy and you are afraid of too many bottom outs there might be still a few mm left.

    regarding the fork: I have a fox, riding that with the one stock spacer- no issues at all. that thinks works.

    I've got a 420mm 125 dropper in my small suppressor, bro in law has a 380 125 in his medium patrol. the 420 doesn't fit all the way in though unlike the 380 on the medium

    It is a matter of 1 or 2 mm that DBAir fits on the medium frame..

    I tried also X-Fusion Vector, that wasn't even close to fit. Now riding with Elevensix and it fits extremely well..
