29er / Re: New DengFu M06 Build Coming
« Last post by adbl on June 22, 2017, 10:57:01 PM »
abdl, what issues Dengfu claimed to have been resolved? Did you ask them about something in particular?

The two issues i ask about were 1) The water bottle cage bolt placement being too high 2) The inside measurement at the rear hub being 146mm or greater instead of 142mm. If purchased i'm going to take the frame completely apart and measure all tolerances and clearances, along with all mounting hardware to ensure it all goes together properly.

Some of the issues prior builds have come across have supposedly been resolved so we'll see if that's true.

 I took a leap of faith and ordered these for my 2015 Jet 9 Carbon. The set cost me ~$400 shipped with Powerway M32 hubs. The wheels shipped quickly (next day) and arrived super fast (within 8 days of order). They setup tubeless in less than 30 minutes with Stan's rim tape and sealant, Maxxis Ardent 2.25 in the rear, High Roller II 2.3 in the front. Now to my riding impressions.

These wheels are SUPER stiff, super light and very durable. I've thrown them onto the truing stand every two weeks for the past 2 months and no issues with spoke elongation or nipple settling. I crushed all my times up and down just about everywhere I ride, but I had to reduce my fork and shock pressure because the stiffness made the ride so harsh. I also tried reducing the tire pressure and this worked.. to a point.. which is my next point.

The rim bead cracked mid-ride when I hit a sharp rock in the middle of the trail, which means I was probably running them too low. I had never bottomed out at any pressure with these before, and the rock garden I was traversing I had been through many times, so I guess I was just unlucky this time. I immediately emailed customer support and sent them pictures of the impact, and they shipped me a brand new rim the next day! Their only advice: "This wheel is super light XC wheels, so please do not use them on poor road conditions. thanks for your support."

I bought these for mountain biking, and the mountains around here are a little bit rocky.. did I miss something when I bought these? I don't think so, because they have been bombproof until I was an idiot and ran them too low. I would rate these an A+ for the price and customer service and recommend them to anybody looking for a great set of wheels at a great price.

The only caveat, as with any carbon rim, don't run <20psi. Also make sure you don't over-torque the cassette into place if you run an XD driver, the endcaps protrude a lot and the freewheel tool does not make adequate overlap with the splines enough and you will strip them out, thus requiring a new cassette.

I dont think a ccdb inline will work...the space between rocker link and seat tube is too close. The comp/ rebound adjustment assy will hit the frame I think.
 Ok so if money isn't a consideration what is the best shock one could put on this bike? I value high small bump compliance and low breakaway force.
 This will also be a place keeper until the newer metric shocks are available to the public.
 I am hoping like hell that DVO makes something to fit this.
The upper shock hardware is 8x22 , lower should be 8x50 but it supplied shims to use with 8x22 too. The 22mm hardware will bent the 50mm length 8mm inner shaft if you bottom out hard I think.

I just built mine yesterday....will post pics soon.

I just bought this frame I will be running cane Creek dbinline.
Can someone please link me a source for all the mounting hardware bushings bolts etc that I will need?

 Or if someone knows a source for the fox shock that is stock on the spark that would be an option too.

29er / New DengFu M06 Build Coming
« Last post by adbl on June 22, 2017, 11:46:37 AM »
Hey people,

I had an incident happen to me this past weekend that is prompting a M06 build. I currently have a CS-057 hardtail purchased from Peter and have been riding it for about a year and a half. I love the bike! It is fast, responsive and light - 22lbs with a Sram 1x10 drivetrain. I've been having issues with the drivetrain jumping gears and i know from experience it's time to replace the cassette, chain and possibly the crank gear. I'm currently running a RaceFace Cinch NW 30T. I figure if i'm going to spend the money to revamp the drivetrain why not switch all of my components over to a new frame???  ::)

The trails I ride in North Carolina are woodsy single track. Mountain Biking and Trail Running are becoming very popular here and the trails are starting to get beat up. Getting very rooty. This has made me think about going back to a full suspension bike. I still have my Giant 26 FS and had taken it for a ride the other week and was surprised how much i liked it! I haven't been on the bike since i built the 057. If i can combine the small bump compliance of a FS with the benefits of a carbon 29er then i might really have something i'd love  ;D 

So i have been keeping an eye on a few 29er FS here on the forum, mainly the CS-821, CS-FS29 amd the M06. I like the M06 the best as i do prefer the one piece rear triangle. I like the single pivot design with shorter chainstays and slack headtube. It's built more like the Yeti ASRc and i like all of the attributes that design has. I have been dealing with Melody from DengFu on the purchase as i find her very responsive and trustworthy. I purchased a carbon road frame from her 2 years ago and love it! It is first class and performs better than i could have imagined.

As of me writing this, i have not given Melody the official go ahead. I will probably pull the trigger in the next couple of days. Unfortunately i deliberate too much in my head on decision such as these  ::) So my fellow Chinertowners, i would like any feedback anyone has to offer. I have messaged with a few M06 owners already and have been pleased with their comments. If i do purchase the M06 i will document my build here for all who might have interest. Some of the issues prior builds have come across have supposedly been resolved so we'll see if that's true. Thanks for reading and again, any thoughts are welcome  ;D

There are 2 holes under the shock, which is the routing for dropper seatpost I suppose. So there is no cable routing for lock out of rear shock I think. (The BB shell has no holes going up.) The 2 holes for dropper under the shock are not facing each other so its quite difficult to install. Finally I drill 1 extra hole 1 inch closer to the shock.
Also I open some more ports for fully internal routing of the rear brake.

Looks nice!  Is there cable routing for a remote lockout for the rear shock?

Anyone know which bushings to order for the Manitou MacLeod for this frame with the standard fitted DU bushings on the damper ?
If you mean sizing, the rear is 22.2x8, front might vary, mine was 21.5x8, but other guys reported 21.85x8. Better measure everything yourself to be sure.
