build your frame

Great you are ready to build your dream bike with our frameset. We’d like to give you some hints to think about during the build. 

chain

We advise to use a lightweight chain, like the KMC X11EL or the KMC X11EL.

 

We recommend to use the following chain lengths:

 

M97 or M7 / 26T sprocket: 102 links

M9 / 26T sprocket: 104 links

 

M97 or M7 / 30T sprocket: 104 links

M9 / 30T sprocket: 106 links
 
The chain lengths as shown above are exclusive the missing link.

shock bushing

In our bikes we use a 8 x 19mm shock bushing. The FOX part number for that is: 803-03-277.

 

Please be sure that you use a 185 x 55 Trunnion shock on your bike. Our bikes use a soft sound damping rubber in the rocker system. In order to easily mount the shock, you might need to release some air from the shock while installing.

wheelsets

It is possible to use single speed hubs on our gearbox bikes, although they are increasingly hard to find in boost versions. And this means you would need to have your rear wheel custom build.

 

Pinion is offering the H2R or H3R hubs, single speed 148mm boost, that is what you need.

 

You could also try to get hold on the Industry Nine Hydra – MTN – 32 hole – Classic Rr Hub – ISO 6 Bolt – Black – 12×148 – SS or the Onyx MTB BOOST ISO HGSS-148/12mm Thru-bolt Rear Hub.

 

Alternatively you could use a standard wheelset with a Shimano HG body and align the rear sprocket with spacers in the right position.

chain
tensioner

We use chain tensioners from Pinion, which you can order together with our frame. For the correct mounting you will need an adapter, which comes with your frame, together with the screws.

 

In the pictures you see how to mount the adapter on the Pinion, with one countersunk screw and one pan head screw. We have left out the chain ring and crank on the photo, to make the mounting of the adapter as clear as possible.

 

When the adapter is fitted, the chain tensioner is mounted on top of the adapter with two black pan head screws. The middle holes of the chain tensioner are used.

tire size

We normally assemble a 2.4 inch tire on the rear. Though it is possible to mount larger tires up to 2.6 inch on the rear.
