    Saturn 14 ST Build Thread/Ideas

    Not seeing a thread specifically for the new Saturn 14 ST, I thought I'd create one as I can't be the only person planning on building one up.

    Post up your build ideas, questions and other info pertaining specifically to the Saturn 14 ST.

    I think this frame has a lot of promise to be maybe the most versatile bike out there, so I'm really excited to see what others will create!

    I am specifically debating which rear shock to get.
    In the running are:
    • New Ohlins TTX (Update: DOES NOT FIT)
    • Ext Storia Lok (NOPE - frame cannot accommodate a coil shock per Nicolai)
    • DVO Topaz T3Air (yes, it fits)
    • Manitou Mara Pro (fits, great design, what I ultimately went with)
    • Other?

    For those of you not going stock, what are you planning on running?

    I am also thinking of building one up, on the tech sheet it says frame is compatible with all coil shocks, where'd you hear the EXT won't fit cause thats what I wanted to run as well.

    That's what Nicolai told me in an email, due to the tension bar.
    Now that I have the Saturn 14 ST in hand, I can confirm that coil won't work.
    After much research, I went with the Mara Pro 210x50, which fits.

    I was thinking Saturn 14 ST 130/29 w/Storia but I guess not now. \_(ツ)_/

    My frame is on order with Nicolai (raw with green anodized rocker and decals), the Intend Flash Fork I ordered for the frame is shipping in 2 days,and most of the other components are on hand after parting out the Forbidden Druid I had before this.

    So excited!

    Since I got the Mara Pro back from Manitou, I have not had a chance to ride it (painting the house).

    Will be interested to hear how you like the Intend, and the comparison b/t Druid-style suspension, and honed 4-bar.
