    Last part of my build. How do you guys get the cable housing for the dropper through the bend above the BB?

    I have a Fall Line on my Patrol, so I threaded the cable through the frame first, making the housing slide through slick as shit

    The 2017 one does not. It uses a 230x65 shock.

    Some of the frames do even have metric bushings - which are not available for aftermarket right now. Bike industry seems to be more about marketing than realizing products... 😏

    Has anyone tried fitting Hope brakes with their braided hoses in the Carbon Patrol? I'm worried that the hose diameter would be too large for the TITS on the frame.
    Thanks,
    Eric

    I've been riding my 2017 metric patrol for a little while now and have to say it's great. I just fitted a rockguardz carbon protector ( they are still moulded for the 2016 but fits ok) I'm hoping fox do the X2 in metric sizing soon.

    One week on my 2016 build. Threw an X2 on it Friday night and tested it out yesterday and it's a definite improvement. Gonna add a spacer today and see how that feels.

    Nice, looking good !! Plus as bad as it's sounds the rockshock doesn't look right as everything else is fox lol. Once I've done that I'm going to give some nextie carbon rims a blast.
