    Change 2016 or 2017 Orbea Occam AM frame to 2018 with 2 parts-

    2017 AM frame can be set up exactly as 2018 and gain 10mm travel by changing 2 parts.

    210mm x 55mm rear shock
    Orbea 'shock extender' part number 12330024

    part can be had directly from Orbea for $45 plus shipping

    change internals of your fork to 150mm and you have the exact setup as the 2018 Occam AM

    I built up a 2018 for my wife and loved it. Sniffed around a little looking at the dimensions and angles on the 17 vs 18 and in the 'Blue Pages' on Orbea website. Bought last model year's frame in a large for me at deep discount and building it up now. Will post pics when finished.

    So funny how review sites describe how the 2018 is a burlier frame and build. Its the same thing with a little more travel which is perfect

    I have just removed the Fox DPX2 shock and Fox 34 Factory off my 2018 Occam AM if you were interested in buying some near new items for your build??

    I'm looking at doing this upgrade on my 2016... Does anyone happen to know the tuning code for the DPX2? I was thinking about trying to order the tuned shock, although that could be overkill.

    Thanks!
