  • Quick question for you: On your kenevo sl, which 180mm fork are you running? single crown or dual? and when you go to a 65mm stroke on the rear, do you need to change anything or can you just throw it in there? Which shock are you running with 65mm stroke? (65 x 230 or 65 x 232.5?)
    thanks in advance!!

    Hey Mark, I’m runnings the Ohlins RXF38 Single crown fork. Rear I am running an Ohlins TTX air 230/65mm and is a straight swap in. Nothing needed but stock hardware.
    No tire clearance issue or any fowling. Just be sure to check your chain length due to the slightly extra rear travel.

    ok, sweet, so the eye to eye measurement is the same... I think a 180 up front with 177mm in the rear probably makes that bike rip! I'm running a 170mm lyrik with push coil conversion and a PUSH coil in the rear... and have it tuned with a Motion instruments telemetry kit.. and thinking going to the 180/177mm would be a nice upgrade!! Thanks for the reply. Appreciate it.

    Oh the Motion kit. I have tried sourcing one of those here in Aus but no luck. Where did you get yours?
    As for the extra travel, it’s not 100% needed but I have always run maximum possible travel in my bikes as it helps with my dodgy back. When it gets rough though I am always glad to have it.
    Which rear fender are you using for your kenevo S4?

    If you are referring to my old 2020 Kenevo S4 then its this one
    If you mean my S3 Kenevo SL then its the same guard but from the Levo SL. It fits but not moulded for the KSL so it doesn’t hug the frame perfectly. Works fine though.
    Hey mate, which LBS did you get to adjust your shock for the Kenevo 2020? (I moved to Melbourne this year) I’m on the list for a 2021. Going to try run Fox 49 forks off my DH bike and change to rear shock to a DHX2 or float X2.
    hows your sizing, I’m bit over 186cm and pretty sure it’s going to be a S5.
    Cheers, Eric.

    Hey mate, my shock was Ohlins so NS Dynamics in qld do all my mods servicing.
    I’m 178cm and just scraped in to an S4. I would say at your height S4 for playful, S5 for DH.
    As for the forks, I ran the Ohlins at 200mm non problem, and the rear 200mm with an over stroked rear and 29s front and rear. Slack though at 62 HA but still rode everywhere fine. If the new one comes out with adjustable geo then your laughing.

    I’ll only be self shuttling DH tracks, so looking for the closest thing to my DH bike 200/200 travel would be perfect.
    I’m currently running a mullet with 62°HA, so that wouldn’t be an issue, also have a few head angle adjustment caps I can alway put in to steepen.
    But interesting that the S4 is still 40mm more in reach (at 500mm) then my DH, scott gambler size L.

    What size coil you running?
    I see the fox DHX2 runs 230x65 or next jump up is 250x75 which might be an issue.
    do you ride in Melbourne or Queensland? I’m trying to find some good DH trails down here
