    me gusta!

    Just out of curiosity, why the (most expensive) xx1 cassette?
    I will also go for a SRAM drivetrain, but save the bucks on the back (cassette and derailer max. gx /x1) and put the higher-value parts on the front - since I've destroyed many derailers in the past and the cassette is still a wearing part for me.

    Since you ride a M patrol (and I guess you aren't over 6") have you thought about 170mm cranks? Just to compensate the low bb a bit and avoid some more pedal strikes. I'm thinking about this, but I'm 6"1 and I dunno if this will work out.

    I wonder if anyone has tried a 170mm fork on the patrol?

    My 2015 Patrol III with a few upgrades

    Mine is a stock 2015 Patrol III with a few upgrades:
    1) New KS LEV Integra dropper post
    2) New Easton Haven 35mm Bars and Stem (so sexy!)
    3) Put my used Atlas cranks on in place of the low-end stock cranks.
    4) My used VP Harrier pedals

    The Haven bars and stem dropped major weight and the carbon bars are so comfortable I swear I can do shuttle runs for 30-40% longer before I get arm fatigue.

    I love how the Haven bars in flat black with red totally match the pike's black and the red on the o-ring! This ended up makign my red pedals actually work whereas before with no other red it looked kind of "off".

    The only other thing I would like to change are the wheels but I can wait until I destroy them at which point I would like to try a slightly wider rim (32mm internal now) and a better rear hub.

    How do you like the Magura MT 5's? I am thinking of putting them on the front, and back. The MT 5 is actually cheaper than the MT 4. Do you like the SL rotors? I think I would use the same rotor selection as you did.

    Hi sorry for the delay, wasnt here for some time.

    I like the maguras a lot. I came from avids, and i hate the dot fluid. Pulling water all the time and my cellar is pretty humid, so i had to change the fluid every three month.

    In europe the mt4 is cheaper then the mt5, but the lever is absolutely the same, in my experience a 4 piston brake on the rear weel is pretty overkill. The rotors are fine, quite light and not too noisy. I have a second weelset fo bike park, there i use the normal rotors, as they have much more material and therefore a better heat capacity.

    I use the mt5 on my blindside in parks a lot and i did not have any problems.

    Hope i could help!

    Beautiful bike! Love the blue, What grips are those?

    is that the same blue as the 2014 Scouts? Yours looks a little lighter.
    I just got a blue scout and looking for close matching blue parts.

    Grips are Raceface love handles, Easton also has some blue ones that look like they'd match the color too. Not sure if it's the same color or not..

    Hey guys, I know it's been mentioned before but just a reminder that the rear brake line WILL rub on your rear triangle seat stay. I proactively put Invisishield here to prevent damage to the surface and when it's dry that thing makes all sorts of rubbing noise, definitely a strong contact point.

    Yeah I'm on a medium. The seat tube length is said to be 16.5" but you can only put about half of that before you hit the pivot in/on seat tube. Plus a connectamajig makes it even less. Maybe I remove the connectamajig and run a standard line and get the little less.

    Is transition stocking mediums with 125 post?

    A question for the patrol carbon users; do you think a braided brake lines (goodridge) will fit in the TITS feature? How tight they are? Appreciate any comments!!

    Thanks

    The fit of the tit is pretty snug on regular brake hose, not sure how much larger the diameter of that stuff is. Careful on the opening on the bottom of the down tube, the angle of the hole and the finish is very sharp. Took the outer black coating off my hose in several locations.

    Thanks for the advice!! I think normal brake hoses are 5mm outer diameter and goodridge ones are 6mm....not sure about this figures but I know for a fact the goodridges are bigger... I've asked the dealer and he says no problem, they fit...we'll see

    Any one running double barrel on the patrol? I'm getting the frame with the DB coil and no base settings on canecreeks site, if somebody has one and would like share setting would be awesome!!

    Thanks again!

    Has anyone had on issue with shifting cable getting caught up in the chairing? I just picked up my bike and was going over the bike and noticed the cable is mighty close.

    My Patrol.....

    After coming off a Scout I'm shocked how good the Scout was because the Patrol does not feel that much different! Just a little better DH.

    The di2 cable routing works perfect in the front triangle and stuck well to the rear with a the old external cable cover sheath and can't be seen in between the frame chain guard. I do need a longer cable though as i have had to use a cable connector at present.

    Bike weighed in at 28.lbs

    HAHA good point! This was when i first built it and just thrown that XTR crank on to give it a go while i was waiting for a RACE Face BB tool. Its now got a NEXT SL crank and the rear di2 cables have been sorted

    Yes. The solution I got from Transition was to marry the shifter and brake lines to one another using a piece of tubing a zip-tie (start about 1" for the tubing length to keep them away from the tire).

    Mine isn't built yet, but just cycling the rear suspension will pull the shifter line straight into the chainring. Same issue. Going to try the tubing trick when I put the brake cable through. I'll try to get a picture of it.


    The seatpost internal routing is REALLY hard to pass the housing through down near the BB. The solution for this I got from Transition was to make an angled cut at the end of the housing to let it pass that corner easier, then square it off later. I'll see how that works tonight. Hopefully that saves someone else some headache.

    The seatpost internal routing is REALLY hard to pass the housing through down near the BB. The solution for this I got from Transition was to make an angled cut at the end of the housing to let it pass that corner easier, then square it off later. I'll see how that works tonight. Hopefully that saves someone else some headache.
    Thanks. That is what I ended up doing. Except I used a cable connector thingy.Patrol build thread-uploadfromtaptalk1459478463345.jpg

    Here's a picture of the full bike. Build kit too. Still to muddy to ride here so it has been pavement and gravel trails. Looking forward to getting on some trails soon.Patrol build thread-uploadfromtaptalk1459478604811.jpg

    Mine came in a 29.2 with XTR trail pedals. A bit heavier than I expected

    I'm expecting around 31lb, I have a SA spring wich is around 150gr lighter and some mallet dh pedals, any way I will be super happy as my old rune was 32,5 lb with air shock and I was pretty happy because didn't felt heavy to me, so anything lighter and with coil is welcome

    Mine came in at 29.5 complete, and this is for an alloy frame. The only extravagant part on mine are the Enve wheels. I am confused as to how these carbon builds are coming in so much heavier than mine. You guys running slime tubes? lol.

    I don't know were those extra grams are coming from?? I know there is lighter cranks, pedals, cassette, hubs, shock, fork, for example, but to me not worth to sacrifice reliability and quality for a few extra grams less and a lot of $$ less...

    Here she is





    It came at 31lb, just what I thought, some may think it would be heavy, but to me is a no compromise build, it's 600gr lighter than my old bike, and I have transferred all the components and now running a coil spring... Superstoked, now time for a first ride

    DVO fork is a few hundred extra grams, otherwise I feel like I have a decently light build. Wheels are also coming in around 1700 grams or so iirc, so a bit heavier than your enves.

    No enves on mine, not really up to pay all that money for a brand, they don't offer so much compared to other carbon rims...

    Nice!! - How do you find the coil? Currently running the monarch debonair but thinking of swapping for a Ohlins TTX coil.

    @Mike640, love the look with those stickers. I've got the black alu with the stock yellow and prefer this. Where did you get them from?

    cheers

    Nice Build! I'm running coil on my suppressor, love it! Tracks amazingly in the rough stuff. I'm a pretty light rider and was having major spiking issues with the Monarch+.

    Coil feels awesome, super supple from the top with nice support in the mid travel, I think it's really appropriate for what I do and the kind of terrain I ride, traction is superb, I think I can't ride anything other than this kind of shock, ridding quality is top top

    good stuff cheers. What sort of terrain/riding are you doing with the coil?

    Do you lose the poppy feeling of the bike at all?

    I will be mostly riding UK stuff from rough DH to woods, snotty roots, mud etc. Also need's to climb as good as it does now with the debonair that sort of thing.

    all the best

    I'm running an Avy tuned Fox Van rc so its wide open all the time. I ride mostly South Mountain Arizona, USA. Its one big rock garden, lots of tech, and requires pedaling up in order to enjoy the descends. I personally think a well tuned coil matches the patrol/suppressor very well. Its much more lively, poppy, traction is unreal up and down!

    In all honesty, I think you loose a marginal amount of pedaling efficiency in certain situations. In my case, I don't have a lock-out, and it pedals just as well as before if you are mindful of your pedaling technique. However, there are times where I have to really stomp on the pedals while out of the saddle and riding up and over rough patches with big rocks in succession, I can tell there is slight inefficiency due to how active the rear link can be. It still climbs techy lines no prob, and feels dialed descending, so i'm happy with the trade-off. Initially, I was looking at the CC CS coil, since on paper it sounds like the perfect solution, but I don't have the patients to deal with reliability issues that seem to plague all the guys I know who've owned CC shocks. Its like 50/50 chance.

    good one, thanks for info. Yes I'm not too concerned on efficiency going up just as long as I can get up Big thing will be how well it tracks and performs going down on the rough stuff, but also want to keep the lively poppy feeling of the bike.

    Hoping to test a Ohlins TTX in the next few weeks and will be able to swap it out for the air shock so should give me the perfect test.

    I'm confident you won't want to go back to air. I actually tried the Fox Van fox on my bike before sending it off to Avalanche and it rode like poo. It was like riding on a soggy noodle-no support. Then, I went back to the Monarch while the Van was sent to Avy. Once I got the tuned shock back from Avy, it has been phenomenal! You start to realize how over dampened the Monarch is and how dull air feels. Make sure to report back!

    I ride a wide variety of trails, from muddy greasy rockgardens to fast flowy trails, steep rough stuff, here in north Spain we have cold rainy winters and mellow dry summers, so trail conditions change all over the year, now still cold and wet, and traction is just superb...I used the base settings for DB air on the patrol, added some HSC for start and after first ride had to close HSR because it was to poppy, so that won't be an issue for you, pedal efficiency is fine, I don't do out the saddle climbs and I don't need the CS, it tracks the terrain pretty well without almost any pedalbob

    Pros....all of them, cons....wheigt, no joke, don't have lot of time with it, but I can tell that traction with this is superb, sensitivity off the top through the travel, feels bottomless, plus all extra benefits of the CC, as said, only one con, wheigt, but if you're like me that wheigt is important but not to the extreme...you are good to go

    Sorry for the previous post my phone doesn't show anything that I'm typing so it's hard to get it correct. What Ford are you running on that set up? Also what travel? Thanks.

    Got it from a local tuner Mike, he sent me one to test for a few days and well that was enough!! It allowed me to test back to back with the air and for the type of riding I like doing it was and is fantastic. The best thing I can say about it is that you just don't get any dramas, sort of does everything very very well without you thinking "wow" if that makes sense.

    I seem to be pulled towards the rougher types of trail and after three runs with the air on a particular tough one I was knackered, come back to it with the Coil and could have kept going and going, was less fatigued.

    Doesn't climb as well as the air but tbh it is still pretty good and nowhere near enough for me to want to switch back.

    For the less rough trails the air is still pretty good and tbh the air is still good enough for the rough stuff but the coil just allows me to push it a bit more with less fatigue.

    If that makes sense??

    Just curious..

    Has anyone who has done a custom build used a 51mm offset fork on their Patrol?

    If so, any chance you did a comparo with a "normal offset" fork?

    Wondering about that.

    Nibby, it makes very sense! But here in Portugal, we spent a lot of time climbing.... :/ I have never seen ohlins material for sale here.... I have very curiosity about the STX 22...

    I trace the existing decal with a pencil then peel it off with my fingernails. Match new decals with pencil outline and voila.

    So I am very pumped to say I should have my new carbon patrol this week, maybe..... Shipping depending.

    Level 2 build. Plan on my choice of bars and stem but curious what shock of choice. I plan to set up the monarch plus on the firmer side with token. I am familiar with the monarch plus, but would like to look at having a coil shock to try. And use for the more aggressive places. Any suggestions best option yet, Is it specific sizing or are you all making somethine else fit. Any fox/CC/rockshox suggestions on fork shock combo?

    Thanks I'll do my best to keep reading and searching and catch up. Selling off my stumpjumper for this puppy so hope its as fun as I expect

    There's my rig.
    Been riding it since April and loving it more everyday.

    I have been seeking an alternative shock, but keep having some fitment issues.
    DBAir CS won't fit, either X-Fusion Vector.. Do you have any suggestions.?

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

    Just fitted up an RC4 coil with a 400# Ti spring (bang-on 35% sag for a 185# rider btw). Screw the air shock. Almost the same climbing performance and TONS better descending performance. Measured about 1/2lb - 3/4lb of weight gain for it. Worth every bit.

    Now if I could get this Fox 36 Float feeling like something besides a goddamn 2x4, I'd be golden.
