30mm can have more effect than it looks !

Thanks for the Rocket Ron/Maxxis comment.
I ride almost exclusively RoRo all year, by habit, and will give Maxxis a try as my next set.

Just curious, your trails are closed when it rains ?
If it was the case here, we could only ride from June through September  :D

@0435235, thanks for the clarification.
If you can provide any link to a text, even in German, that would be great.
It could help on my crusade here with the Belgian customs :)

@0435235 that is interesting. Do you have a Euro article available somewhere that states this?
Here in Belgium they are quite mad about the anti dumping, and that would be good to discuss with them.

1. I ride thin tires, 2.1 or 2.25.
A 2.35 could fit, but it depends on the rim width.
Do you know the width of the rim/tire combo you'd like to put?

2. Yes, the replacement arrived without any surprise or issues. The warranty from Peter is real.
It was a first batch problem it seems. After ~5000Km of hard rides, the replacement frame is still going strong.

I love this frame, it is the stiffest I tried( direct from China or some branded bikes ), and coupled with the Lauf fork, it is a bomb :)
If I would crash it today, I would probably order another one.

Just to temper. This can be very personal obviously.
For instance the wife of cmh who rides strong, tried one, and wasn't happy at all from the frame:

As long as there is enough thread in the nut you'll be fine.
Not seing it well on the picture #2.

Do not forget to add an M3 ( or M4 ) screw to lock the nut in place.

I check this with a spray-bottle with water and soap. I spray it over the complete wheel. When there's a leak, it will make nice bubbles. And doing it this way you can easily check if the tape/rim is leaking air or the valve.
When you do the water trick only, air can escape up inside the rim and you won't see this.

Nice trick. I'll do it !!

I used this one on all my bikes: https://www.bike-discount.de/en/buy/dt-swiss-rws-e-thru-12x142mm-aluminium-thru-axle-454335

But tried this one recently, it hasn't a lot of km, but it looks to work very well too, and a bit cheaper.
It is only alloy, no plastic parts like the DT Swiss.
The action is a little smoother on the DT Swiss, not to tighten but just to place the handle in position after tightening.

I tried a simple, non TR Rocket Ron in the front last season.

Inflating it just before my ride was enough.
Even during the longest ones(70-90km), but after the night, it needed to be inflated again.
There was no clear leaks visible under water, just like if it was more porous.

It is indeed about 10% less expensive than Stan's !

Does it leave as much hard-to-clean junk in the tire?

After some research the only fork that matched 3" 29+ tires with a boost 110mm hub was the Pike:
https://r2-bike.com/ROCK-SHOX-Suspension-Fork-29-PIKE-RCT3-DebonAir-SA-120-mm-BOOST-tapered-black-2018_1

I do not remember why but the Reba, that was less expensive didn't work.

This list was interesting although it dates back to 2016.

I would take a 17,5".

I'm as tall as you, but with a 34" inseam.
I took L on 3 frames so far.
Just to avoid a big drop between the saddle and the bar.
And short stems(70-80mm) to compensate the long reach.

In your case, the saddle will be much lower, and you can play with a longer stem if you like.
The best is to draw some lines based on the geometry data, and compare the 17.5" and 19" ( I use sketchup for that ).
Then compare it to your current bike. It should be quick to know which one fits best.

Do not worry, in a couple of months, you will not see the scars anymore  ;)
Thank you for the detailed pictures.

The BB aluminium shell on my kid's bike got loose after a year of use.
A quick look, and it was clear it was beyond repair.

I sent a couple of pictures to Peter, a few emails, and got a new replacement frame a couple of weeks later.


Sadly, that doesn't help you much here in this case.
But just a reminder that Peter is someone you can trust when things go wrong.
