How about use on trails Off Limits to Motorized Vehicles?  My opinion is NO, it has a motor, ie, no go...

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.

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.

I sure will! I'm in conversation with Melody from DengFu about the M06. If i pull the trigger i will post here and then start a build thread so all who might be interested can follow.

Thanks again!

Hey, I really appreciate your feedback! I know i ask obscure questions. I guess because we don't have the ability to test ride Chiner frames we want to learn everything about them as best we can. A well designed bike is important but in the end it all comes down to the strength of the engine  ;)

I was under the impression that road levers and MTB derailleurs were not compatible because of differente pull ratios.
True for Shimano 11s, but that's why he's got a pull-ratio converter installed. Look at the small snail-like thingie just over rear derailleur.
Good eye! ;) I used this adapter from Wolf Tooth: https://www.wolftoothcomponents.com/products/tanpan It's basically just a set of pulley wheels that amplify the cable pull. So far it shifts fine. Not quite as crisp as a purely road or MTB setup, but the difference has been negligible.

Also, I don't think I'll ever be able to un-see the snail when I look at that thing now.

WCB-M-062

My first build, wanted to do something a little different. So far I'm loving it on the local single track!

Eventually I may throw on a dropper post and rig it up to the unused front shifter, but for now I'm fine with the stop, drop, and roll routine at the top of the hill.

Nice bike! how is your shifting? I was under the impression that road levers and MTB derailleurs were not compatible because of differente pull ratios.

Thanks!

Yikes, these are hard questions.
1. The M06 just feels a tad softer in all directions. I like it, I don't get as beat up.  Mainland China doesn't seem to have the high-strength carbon techniques that the Taiwan factories have. I'm pretty sure you will see that the high-end Specialized, Cannondale, Yeti etc frames are made in Taiwan, but don't quote me on this. What attracted me to the Deng-Fu M06 is the 68.5 degree slack, short chainstays, and a good reputation.

2. My rear shock is a Rockshox Monarch XX 165x38mm w/ Lockout M/M Tune. (my old cannondale had a pro-pedal setting) The Monarch XX rear shock is standard on the Cannondale Carbon Team which has a zero pivot design. I only measure for recommended sag. I probably should rent an analyzer from the LBS.

Hope this helps.
