    Thanks, I think I want to get a beefier wheelset anyway. Another question for whomever though:

    What's the best freeride/downhill shock that will fit the 650b slash? Are there any relevant differences between the 650b and 26" models that will render older threads useless?

    Trek slash

    Just a carbon front triangle. No thanks on the rear.

    jumping straight in at the end of this thread;

    anyone run a different shock to the DRCV?

    Just picked up a Float X for my Slash...

    Going to try it tonight

    Curious to see how you will make it fit, I'm pretty sure they don't make a float x with the correct fit.

    Hi. Ya you are correct, no standard Fox shocks have the correct dimensions. An interesting fact about the eye to eye on the Slash DRCV is that it is stated I believe to be ~209X59 but when measured it comes out around 204mm eye to eye. (cant remember what I measured the stroke as).

    I have installed an 200 X 57. giving me a aprrox 4mm drop in eye to eye.

    Shock performance alone is good so far. Realistically I did not want to change the geometry of the Slash in low setting. But I wasn't happy with the downhill performace of the DRCV. Bike is now touch lower bb and slacker head angle.

    I'm going to play around with the mino link now, see what I like.

    Does the tire not hit the seat tube at full compression? If you above-stated dimensions are correct, your i2i at compression is 7mm shorter...which could mean the tire hitting the seat tube.

    no, clearance is fine. I checked. If anything it looks like the shock bottoms out slightly earlier than with the DRCV. Shorter stroke..?

    my measurement of 204mm i2i for the drcv is accurate I think. mojo came up with the same number too.

    unless my drcv shock was stuck down... which I highly doubt as I just serviced the can. But it does seem strange, when Rockshox are making shocks 210X59 for the Slash.

    couple rides in on my Slash with shorter Float X on the back and I am super happy with how it rides. Still got it in the slacker mino link setting. Feels like the bike I always wanted; a short travel DH bike. Still pedals up great.

    I bought the Slash specific Rockshox Monarch in a 210X59 size but have no idea how to find hardware for the upper mount. Looks like the hardware for the lower mount is included. I'd have to imagine that it exists if they released the Slash specific Monarch? I'd like to avoid the Ti bolt hack job if possible. Anyone?

    The stock hardware on the evo link doesn't work? If so, I bet they just accidentally left it out when boxing it up. Post a review once it gets goin!

    If it doesn't fit right out of the box, than why they call it as Trek Slash specific?

    This is what I got as an answer from Trek (asked if this new shock would fit older Slash, 2012 or 2013):

    "The physical mounting hardware that holds the shock on is slightly different.
    By different, I mean the length of the bolts are different- for example:
    On 2012 slash the bolt is 10x1x20mm
    On 2014 slash the bolt is 10x1x18mm

    On another note, the lower shock mounting bolts are identical.
    "

    Also, a lot of sites says that the Slash specific Monarch Plus Debon Air is 2012-2014.

    Trek kept the same mounting hardware for the Fuel EX remedy 29 etc but changed the Slash shock to a normal upper eyelet mount vs the thread in DRCV body. My shop says upper hardware isn't available for 120 days. If that's true= LAME.

    Thanks. Also, it looks like you are right (which was really hard to believe), but looks like they have changed the upper shock mount for 2015:
    Singletrack Magazine | Trekworld: Trek 2015 Range

    But for 2014 it is still threaded hardware and special upper mount as I can see.

    P.S. Also, you can see that carbon Slash will be out for 2015.

    I've broken Rear Maxle..Anyone knows where to get online?

    I found out this comment on Amazon:

    "The older (and shorter) manufacturers label on the Maxle reads:
    11.4315.023.000
    REAR MAXLE ASSY, CUS
    OEM TREK 142 X 12 FR

    The newer ABP Convert 142x12 192mm Maxle package reads:
    00.4315.017.010
    11 REAR MAXLE CUSTOM
    TREK 142X12 FR"

    However I looked up to Sram's spare parts pdf and it says:
    "Original (2008-2009) Rear Maxle assembly is no longer available. "

    Than there is only one part listed as below:
    "11.4315.023.000 Rear Maxle Lite, Trek 142mm x 12mm FR"

    Confused...

    That sounds bass ackwards to me man. I'd just get both and send back the one you don't need--seems easier than trying to sort it out in dark places like this.

    If I end up getting one, I'll order through my LBS and have them do the install, maybe they'll let me film and I can post link here if it's quick.

    Just upgraded the fork (x-fusion metric) and front wheel (hadley dh hub) though so it'll take a few weeks. Really wanna read some solid review too before I pull the trigger.

    Really hoping for a coil rear at some point too.

    This almost certainly sounds like a bearing in the ABP pivot that is sitting loose in the frame. They should be snug. Remove the ABP hardware and if a bearing pops out real easy that's your culprit, I just went through tracking down these same symptoms on my Fuel. My solution was to wrap the bearing in teflon tape and press it back into the frame. So far so good, we'll see how long it lasts.
