Hello Mate

I just sold my Bottlerocket.

Get some headset reducer cups from BETD, they are about £30 and then you can fit any standard 1,1/8th headset.  I ran a Chris King in mine and had no problems at all.

The rear hub spacing is standard size.

You may need a higher stack headset, 66 have very wide, flat crowns so with a headset with that littel stack you risk the crowns fowling the frame

What do you think of the marozcchi 55r? link to it above.
Its 140mm travel is that enough for this frame?
It iwll be used for Dh but i only really want 150mm travel on it. So is the 55 any good? 140mm will be enough travel but will it suit the frame?
