When I did this I checked deep into the numbers. The axle to crown for a DH fork is only about10-15mm more than the rxf36 m.2 I had on there...so it screws with it slightly (.1 inches higher BB, 1 degree slacker HA. I actually wanted the slacker HA, and got 30mm of more travel out of the front end. Bars can be exact same height.

Now this is t a perfect bike by any means. Heavier for pedaling up for sure, sucks for technical climbing. But climbing fire roads in this thing and having a blast for “smashy bike” time descending. I also have a more trail oriented bike for that style. It will be a great park bike once lifts open here again, or shuttles.

Again, not the perfect everything bike...but a hell of a lot of fun!

I want to know more about the scott specific reservoir. Is this just something that Öhlins makes?

Yes, kind of... they have someone who specifically makes it for them, but it is a known option, that you have to specifically ask for. The trunion mount is so deep into the frame nothing else works without some modification. It was a bit of an up charge, but well worth it to run the ohlins nice and clean.

Norco has the range, Commencal will be close, and so will mondraker. Big S has a 180 travel. so there are slowly more and more options. will see what 2021 brings.

At this point, I still want a DH bike... just something about them. There is nothing that rides like one... but until I get closer lift access it isn't worth it. NOW... what I do want to do, E-DH (this won't create a shitstorm I know!). Take a long travel ... more »
