Hey, was trolling around the forums and saw you had a Supreme SX. Currently on a Nomad, but the shop i work at dropped SC, so will be switching it up soon. How have you liked you SX so far? Looking for somewhat of a park bike, maybe occasional 'enduroish' riding. Think the Supreme SX is what I'm looking for? Reviews and customer testimony is very limited due to the short model run.

Good question. I can't imagine fox is making two CSUs just for aesthetic reasons. Maybe I'm wrong. If I'm right and the CSU is the same, then the Push stuff would fit, and it'd also allow a customer to swap to a 37mm Fox CSU if they'd like...

Haha right? I think it's more just a tough market. Too many good bikes out there these days. Not a lot of love for something mediocre (as good as I'm sure it rides...).

Proportional response optimized pivot placement. These guys must have taken that 2019 Carbon Patrol press camp video too seriously. Speaking of proportional, why so long in the seat tube for the given sizes?

And even for taller people that can deal with the seat tube length...there's the angle, which is still no good. Close...but...pass, too many good bikes out there these days! Feel like these are gonna be a tough sell.

Saw that you got a OneUp dropper, sweet! Are you able to slam it down to the seatpost collar? I've been thinking of upgrading. Have a 170mm oneup dropper on my sentinel and i love it.

Yeah maybe. I mean it's a 1.5" straight headtube so you can run an angleset to make it less slack, just need to figure out the right ZS56 combo. Or just run the shock stiffer so it rides higher? I dunno. Bummer you don't like it, I love mine. It's a Whistler wrecker! Super fun having a DH bike I can pedal. I also have a transition sentinel that sees more daily duties, this just serves as my DH rig (that I can pedal to hit local freeride trails). Way more versatile than a full DH.

@thomdawson I've never actually measured my HA, but I'd say my stock bike rides like it is closer to 63 than 65. Which is a desirable trait for me for this type of bike . Maybe they did get it wrong on their chart? Lyrik 180 is going to have a slightly longer a-to-c measurement than a fox 36, but that shouldn't be a 2 degree difference. They probably just discontinued them since they didn't sell as well as their Meta series, or the Supreme DH. Just a hypothesis though. Most people still seem to want full DH rigs...not sure why when you can have a rad beast like this that can still be pedaled!

I wasn't really surprised by Gwin's crash either. I had a gut feeling that he was carrying too much speed into the woods and that something was bound to give. At that speed he was forced to take the low/outside line, which ultimately was his undoing. To make the high/inside he would've had to slow up....more

Roger that, certainly a clean/easy solution. I'll probably do that. One more question - how much modding did you have to do to that V4 mudguard to fit?

I'll post my bike check soon! Waiting on my Light Bicycle 38mm carbon rims and Onyx hubs to come in.

Word! Good to know, thanks! So I'll probably stick with a 125mm Integra and a quick release seat collar so I can slam the seat for jump/dh/shuttle sessions (got a Hope one which is really nice).

Another thought I had was using a KS externally routed 150mm. My 150mm KS externally routed dropper is just under 8.5" long I think. So without the extra stuff at the bottom of the post that the Integra has, this is a pretty ok option (except having to figure out how to route the cable). Would be able to easily remove the dropper for park days too then, which is a plus. Hmmmm....

Super dope build! I am trying to figure out what to do with my dropper post. I want to be able to run the seatpost slammed all the way down (for as low of a seat as possible).

How far down can you lower that seatpost with the Bike Yoke? Does it go all the way into the frame?

Super dope build! Looks like from the photo that you can slam the KS LEV Integra 125mm all the way down so that it is all the way in the seattube (lowest possible seat)?

Mine still has the 125mm Reverb, and I can't slam it all the way because the cable extrudes from the base so much. The overall length of the 125mm Reverb with the cable on the bottom is really close to a 150mm KS LEV Integra I have on another bike, potentially a bit longer. So I'm trying to figure out if I can get a 150mm KS LEV in my Supreme SX slammed all the way down. May have to stick with a 125mm dropper.
