    Looks to me that the moment of the rack at the point the swing arm is connected is transferred through the vertical pin connection. The moment on the pin will essentially transfer the load the same in either orientation. The small amount of vertical shear the lower arm is taking should be pretty easily handled as a tensile load in the pin. That's my thought at least at first glance. I'd want to look at the assembly closer to be sure.

    Dented my rear rim... unable to get it to hold air. I used a butane torch and hammer/pliers to try and get it back. Any other ideas? Or bombproof wheel recommendations? edit; maybe i should look into vittoria air-liners....

    Also cinched the tire. Not sure if patch will work since I don't have a rim to test on lol

    hmm... well TBH I was really only looking for a rim... I only have ~120 miles on hub/cassette trying to avoid replacing everything if possible.

    Could you use a 1up in combination with a Kuat hitch drop?

    Any shorts riders out here? I'm 5'2 and 5'3 on a good day, looking at the new 2021specialized enduro Its size (s2) on 29ers, I have to tilt the bike a little bit to have my both my feet planted on the ground. Is that a hazard for me? I've done fine on 29ers before (2016 stumpjumper) But Enduro just run slightly bigger.

    You need to flip the metal piece around, then the rocky mounts will fit in the correct orientation. I had the same issue.

    I’d be into that!
    The number of Tacomas with tailgate pads I’d see lining route 9 always cracks me up. There are so many out here. Maybe we just need @CBoy808 to make the SDF bed stickers :rofl:

    Have you swapped a rim before? I'm thinking of swapping my rim but am a bit nervous. I guess just number the spokes and get them as close to the same tension? Maybe I should get a truing stand

    I built the wheelset on my previous hard tail. I used zip tie method to get it trued. I kind of just guessed on tension. Admittedly I was always a little hesitant on my work, I think I would bring it in to my local shop for a safety check if I did it again.

    Have you already retaped? Sometimes you can retape the wheel with wider tape. I had the same issue last week

    If you can't get it I bet your LBS can work magic on it. I'm optimistic you don't need a new wheel

    Took some ebikes out yesterday with my gf, one Levo and one Heckler. They are so forgiving that she was comfortable hitting gap jumps and larger drops. Shes been slowly shifting away from xc race bikes and has been learning how to jump in the last month or so and progressing super fast.

    Ive used plastic mallets before to remove dents, does a pretty good job without digging into the aluminum.

    I'm going to put more time in it today, I think I can get it too. I ordered a new rear tire too. The little pinch tear is right by the bead so I'm sure that's not helping either.

    Tension is arguably more important than true. Set tension first then true the wheel, you risk catastrophic failure is tension is out of whack. Grab a cheap(ish) tension meter from Park, it becomes incredibly useful and you find yourself checking tension regularly. You can then true the wheel on the bike using zip-ties in just a few minutes.

    I think it'd take more than 2" of drop to fit a 1up, I'd probably need 4" drop which seems a little too kludgy.
    I ran across this thread and am thinking of maybe trying a variant using a couple of Rocky Mounts upright roof trays I've got laying around.
