    Troy flip chips. How

    I was going to flip these but they are super-duper tight. Are they reverse threads, or do you have to use the inside bolt vs the outside bolt? How come there are no instructions from Devinci on this?

    Troy flip chips. How

    If it's the same as the Django 29, there is only one bolt which can be tightened/loosened from both sides. It's a reverse thread when you look from the "outside" of the rocker and normal thread when looking from the "inside".

    I agree, Devinci should give clearer instructions about this. No mention of reverse thread in the manual.

    Thanks for asking - I've never even touched mine. It stays in shred mode, but I've thought about trying the high setting.

    AFAIK, they all come chipped in low. I know my Marshall did too.

    Could you possibly elaborate on this? I have the same question as the OP. Each side of the pivot has an inner bolt and an out bolt. I assume you need two 6mm allen keys to do this. But which bolt do you turn an which way do you turn it?

    Coolatt,

    Did you ever get this figured out and successfully flip the chips. The bolts on mine are super tight as well. Im afraid they're gonna strip.

    On my Django, there is only one bolt per chip and that bolt can be loosened from both ends (normal thread from one end and reverse thread from the other end). So, you need only one allen key.
    Here is a quick drawing (sorry about the quality):

    That may be low quality but it's great info. Thanks for taking the time to draw that out.

    I'm not planning on flipping mine at the moment but have thought about it, as others have mentioned. No instructions to be found from devinci and no response to emails or phone calls. Kinda disappointing.

    Ditto. Devinci customer service was super slow for me. Asked question and 3.5 weeks later they emailed and apologized for slow delay. Something about a trade show in Canada. Even then the "support" wasn't specific, more along the lines of "if you look at our website the information is there."

    Thank goodness for the few forum members on mtbr!

    I think the likes of Pivot and Ibis can justify their pricing based solely on personalized attention in the CS department. C'est la vie.

    Reverse tread? What year are you guys talking about? My 2014 is just like all the other suspension pivots. All regular tread. Hmm
