    That shows you how much you know Renny. My new bike is DONE. I just wanted a few rides on it before posting.

    But since you forced my hand, here it is:

    Spring sizes...what size spring should the DHXc have on it? From talking to Turner I'd asked for a 500 from Go Ride. But the spring says 500 x 2.80, shouldn't that be 2.5?

    you're good to go; fox labels most of their 2.5 stroke shock springs as 2.75 or 2.8. It is the right spring.

    The measurement of 2.8 is the maximum distance the coil can compress before it binds. You have the right spring.

    Okay....what size chainring bolt do I need for the rear hanger? Mine doesn't seem to have come with one. Despite me looking in the box 20 times it definitely wasn't/isn't in there.

    Edit: Just tried one from one of my cranksets and it wasn't long enough to catch properly :/

    I've had good luck painting both MTB and MX springs. You have to take the time to sand them a bit and then paint them with 4 or 5 light coats. I don't recommend using a roller, but "appliance" spray paint works good. The last spring I did was metalic silver and it looks very close to Ti on my MX bike.

    Keep us updated on the build. We will be receiving our next batch of Highlines in 2 or 3 weeks.

    Almost done, wrap a tube around the chainstay, cut the steerer, shorten brake hoses, finish indexing the gears. Claim my PhD from MIT for fitting and tuning the front Saint Der.
