Might take a while to post video and pictures, but I rode the infamous FLOW Trail in Santa Cruz on my fill rigid 057.

What nobody tells you is that it requires nearly 1000 ft of climbing to get to the top, then another 1000 back to the trail head from the bottom.

I ordered a 32t oval hope chainring I'll post how it fits when it arrives.
The fs has the badazz Geo. But if you want a longer travel trailer bike with more options for rear shock I would take a hard look at the P9.

Has anyone else built up one of these frames Di2?  I am running into problems.  The frame is supposed to be "Di2 ready" but I think it is not entirely the case.  Anyone out there have experience with this frame?

Thanks for the help guys. The more I get to looking, I'm unsure now if I want the FS27, the P8 or the P9. Anyone have any insight or opinion on any of these frames for trail/mountain riding.  One things that bothers me about the FS27 is that one user stated it would be hard to fit anything over a 30t in the front.

... the lowermost frame linkage axle....

Great explanation. Very good to know. I'm probably not going to mess with anything until the bearings start wearing. Hopefully it will be a while. Thank you so much for your response.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what is a bottom axle preload bolt?
Here's the lowermost frame linkage axle. If I understand it right, the topmost part has a slot in outer threads, a conical recess and some thread inside underneath the recess, so you can screw this bolt into it. The further the bolt is screwed in, the more outer axle thread diameter increases (it can because of outer thread slot, like two flower petals), which in turn restricts axle movement through inner bearing race. The whole setup looks similar to this Shimano non-driveside crankarm preload cap.

I had hard time trying to remove the axle without unscrewing it.

What's up with polished up inner surface of rocker arm where the rear shock busing goes to? Did you experience clearance issues too or that's what you had to do in order for 22.2mm wide bushing to fit? My RWC bearing scratches this part unless you move it in right direction.

No clearance issuse, only that the 21.8mm bushings made the shock move alittle sideways, with the 22.2mm its solid. The polished inside om the picture looked like that from factory. I guess its the backside of where the bearing and bolt goes?

Added some short videos of todays ride to the OP album..sry for the low camera angle..I really the short chainstay , its very easy to just lift the frontwheel and put it in a better line at speed. Turns on a dime with weight behind the saddle :)

Second the blue loctite. Also make sure bottom axle preload bolt is fine, it's the same system Shimano HT2 cranks use. I had hard time trying to remove the axle without unscrewing it (I know, that's stupid).
