    Can anyone link me to the thread about pre-orders and availability? I had it in a tab on my browser but I must’ve closed it. I have a small with silent treatment and ludi mode from the late September delivery pre-order that I’m waiting on.

    For folks moving to a coil shock and looking for starting spring weights - the calculators were fairly off for me. I had to dial it in freshman physics style - with Hooke's law.

    I weigh around 185lb, add ten pounds of water and gear - and I need a 500lb spring to achieve 30% sag.

    As far as kinematics go, informal tests seem to imply that the suspension of this frame is relatively progressive. If you take the shock off and move the rear wheel through its travel, you can see that near the end of its travel the shock bolt moves faster than at the start. This means that it should be pretty coil friendly. I haven't really been hitting anything too gnarly, so can't tell you how it behaves near bottom out, but so far the coil feels great.

    It's funny, I've had a 760mm bar on the way forever, but now it feels like 800mm is just right for this bike, the leverage helps with the weight.

    I too am not a big fan of the new short cranks - I put them on on day 1, and recently took them off. Funny - I greatly prefer the feel of 175mm, but immediately started mashing pedals into things. Somewhat conflicted now. There are some minor weight savings, but they're still crazy heavy.

    Basically, if Lekkie finally makes that 165mm bafang-profile alloy crank, I'm picking up a set in a heartbeat. The entire set weighs as much as one of these crankarms - the short ones even.

    I did notice a difference over the stock bars which were giving me arm pump over fast washboard fire road descents, haven’t had it since. They are also 100mm wider then the bars you listed, and are the same weight. For me, a dampened riser is worth it, but I’ve also upgraded most of the bike to higher end components... GX drivetrain, Spank Split Stem, CODE RSC brakes, E*Thirteen Wheels, Zeb 180 Fork, Fox DPX2 shock, Fox Transfer Dropper, etc. Each upgrade improved the bike feel (maybe not the stem, no difference other then weight/aesthetics). The only thing I tried on the bike that created a regression in ride quality was the short cranks Luna now offers... After one ride I took those off, they felt terrible, way too short for me. If you’re on a tight budget, the generic aluminum risers should be fine.

    I’ve got the 50mm Riser Spank Vibrocore bars on, and it was a huge improvement in geometry for me, I got the XL and had to put a 200mm dropper on to get the right leg extension, which put me in a very aggressive stance on the bike, and I had too much weight on my wrists. After I put them on, I easily got PRs on my local descents - climbing steeps is slightly more difficult though to keep the front end planted.
    Do you think the foam that Spank’s fills their bars with does anything other than adding weight and cost? I am also thinking about getting a handlebar with similar riser and geometry and wonder if Spank’s bar is really worth 4 times as much as other bars with similar geometry, like this one for example https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0711X7NTR..._SRmCFbGCBNMBC

    Nice bike! I want to upgrade my suspension to the same shock you have and a Z1 coil fork. Do you know what spring I should get for the shock? I weigh about 205 lbs and I am an intermediate/advanced rider. Would the 2.3 x 700 spring be it? Thanks...

    All the shock mount bolts are T30, front and rear on my bike. The big pivots for the linkage the shock attaches to are T50 - they are at 10Nm.

    The bolt closer to the key hole/front of the bike a T30 fits perfectly but the two bigger ones in the rear are too large for a t30. Any other ideas please?

    I should read the manual for my suspension cause honestly have no idea how to adjust it I just saw the 3 points to adjust.

  • eskachig

    Ah - T30 fits them all, 6NM of torque. You'll need two, but in practice the front mount axle/bolt ends up being very tight and holds itself from spinning well enough to achieve the required torque on the part that screws in - so you may be able to get away with one.

    The rear linkage is kind of a complicated jigsaw puzzle, so if you're mounting the shock back on after removal do it first.

    I dont need replacement, just the size so I can adjust them

    That's not going to be something you can find in a hardware store, you need actual replacements. Get in touch with Luna or Dafang.

    Does any one know the size of the bolts for the rear suspension air shock? I believe they are torx. Two of the bolts are a little bigger and one is smaller.

    It's just a pretty pink bike joke

    I don't care what you do to your bike

    EL34. I was hoping when I joined this forum I would get constructive comments and yours doesn't fall into that category. The best trials and enduro riders in the world stand to get their center of gravity lower, ie on the pegs versus up high on the seat if they were sitting. I have much more experience doing this type of riding than mtb riding and it seems reasonable to think some variation on standing would be better than having my ass planted on the seat regardless of dropper posts. So,does anyone who uses a modified stance have any experience using riser bars?

    You chose the right size, especially as the X-1 is a somewhat shortish-reach bike by modern standards. I get that standover height is a little high, but you'll get used to that pretty quickly - and you'll never fix a bike that's just too cramped. A couple of moths of growing pains are easily worth it not to spend years kicking yourself about having too small of a bike and fussing with long stems.

    Like with tall motorcycles as a shorter person, you just have to learn to pick a side. You have plenty of inseam when you pick a side - it's when you want to put both feet down at the same time that it's an issue. As another rider around your size, that's just the life.
