I'll kick it off with a tech Q. I bought the AL Jeffsy which comes with a Monarch R. I like lockout on long climbs so want to get an RL or RT3 version. My shock is tuned to M/L3. My question is for those Jeffsy owners with the lockout Monarchs...is your tune the same?

On your back :D

 

Hydration was obviously not top of the priority list during design phase.

 

Luckily I'm a Camelbak fan so don't have this issue.

My Jeffsy also with 1x11 XT drivetrain and 11-46 Sunrace cassette.

- Shock with lockout (probably Monarch Plus)

Anyone know if a M/M tune monarch plus will work on the Jeffsy?

Don't know. What I do know is that YT's frames' leverage curves do not play nice with a lot of air shocks. Best to get in touch with YT.

I'm quite curious to hear what fellow Jeffsy riders are using as lower downtube/ bottom bracket protection. I was quite surprised to find that the bike didn't come with a hard plastic sump guard like in the attached photo.

I'd also dig to hear how a set of wider rims has improved the ride. I'm loving this whip right now but rims and Onza tyres are probably gonna go soon.

Cheers

I use super thick clear vinyl , like 90 bucks for 1x2m sheet from maizies 

 

 

Wider rim will give A better tyre profile and In teory reduce tyre roll , but you can go too wide.

 

A few hubbers with better understandings of the correlation between the two will coment shortly
