Do the RWC 22.2 on your build list fit? I sent Deng Fu's Picture showing their measurement of 21.94 to Chris at RWC. They suggested using the RWC 21.85 version. Since the way their spacers compress on the bushing, it will be good fit.
No idea, it wil take a while to arrive. I was planning to either grind spacers down a bit with a help of machinist friend or send kit back for replacement.


This is quite alarming, the message essentially reads they had issues with moulds apart from the 17.5". Then they go on to say, not to worry as they wont ship out frames with quality issues, obviously not the case as there have been reports of people getting these frames... Klaster, what frame size do you have?
The frame is 19". During weeking I've sent a message to Dengfu in order to confirm if my 19" has the issue.

I have just bought a 17.5 M06  fitted  a 2017 Fox 165x38....... measured with shock fitted have about 56mm of travel so it should be fine.
What mounting hardware width did you use?

I bought this shock from Chain Reaction and the standard bushes fitted to the shock were the correct size.

That's great news. Thank you Jaytee.
I ended up buying the RWC 21.85mm. I ordered a Rock Shox Monarch xx w/ remote lockout from Walmart.com ($230).

(also on ebay from same supplier)

FYI, Kelsey at Deng Fu informed me that they only supply one 8mm shock pivot bolt, so I ordered a second for $6, along with an extra Thru-Axle for $10 and a couple extra Derailleur hangers in case they are hard to find.

I ordered the bike with a custom logo which takes an extra 15 days, so I still have another week before they ship. Their website says it can take up to a month for delivery.

Interesting mine came with 2 shock bolts. I wish i was told the through axle bolt didn't come with the frame I'll have to find one now.

The only problem i can see with the frame is they have positioned bottle cage too far up the down tube. A bottle won't fit under the shock and if i turn the shock around i cant use the remote.
i see from previous drawing on here, dengfu have the cage bolt hole drilled a 180 from the BB which would work ok........my frame is drilled at 225mm which is useless. :'(

Wow, that's big issue. A xc bike without bottle cage is next to useless. Did you confront them with this error? Normally they should replace that frame. Would be a test to check the real customer friendliness.
As a fallback it should be possible to use a cage with straps.

I brought this up with Kelsey at Deng Fu. Here is her response. "We already solve this problem, don't worry about this." So future shipments should be good.

Jaytee, It seems like it would be a pain to send your bike back. I bet if you ask them, they will make a custom bottle cage that will have the mounting holes closer to the top (or drill them yourself). I had to do that with my Scalpel's bottle cage.

Looks great so far! I'm interested in keeping up with your build as i am contemplating building one myself  ::)

Please keep us posted as to your thoughts on the ride when your're finished. I know a lot of us on here wonder about Chiner attempts at implementing contemporary designs into their frames. Are they the real deal with new geometry designs or just a wannabe?

Awesome! I'm also interested in this frame. What about making your own build thread?

Meanwhile, I've got a rear axle lock nut machined by a friendly neightbor, weights 4g. Hopefully it will hold up.

I would eloxadize it. Otherwise it might soon start to corrode. Especially in combination with carbon.
