Few questions on the gambler

  • Any links to good reviews there doesn't seem to be a lot of info out there
  • How much seat post can you extend through the frame... I will need to pedal it from time to time so id like to run an adjustable in there for traversing ridges and the like. Anyone know of an adjustable post which will fit the massive seat tube?
  • Anyone considering running a hammerschmidt ... Will the bike bob and bounce around running such a small ring?
  • Anyone run a shock other than a DHX5
  • Any noticable issues with is being a faux bar design... brake jack etc?

Any info on any of those would be greatly appreciated

Have not seen any

How much seat post can you extend through the frame...
Not sure, I run a solid post (off a Ransom) cut to length and there is a small "stop" welded inside the tube about 1/2" from the bottom.

Anyone know of an adjustable post which will fit the massive seat tube?

You will need to use spacers

Anyone considering running a hammerschmidt ...Not I

Will the bike bob and bounce around running such a small ring? No more then any other single pivot depending on shock.

Anyone run a shock other than a DHX5

I run a Vivid 5.1 - supper plush and the low speed compression does a decent job of preventing "bob" unless I really stand and hammer.

Any noticeable issues with is being a faux bar design... brake jack etc?
Nothing noticeable or better yet, nothing that I personally would be concerned with, the bike is pretty smooth and with all the adjustments it has for the geo it will come down to your personal preference and how YOU set your ride up. When I first took the bike out it was squirrely as hell, after I changed a few settings it was a lot more suited to my riding style.

Hey Karve

Not been on the forum for a while so sorry for answering a bit late, but there is a bit of info out there on the gambler. Reviews are always very possitive, the only complaint is the weight on the fr10. The fr20&dh20 can be built up fairly light though. buckoW is the man on the forums you want to talk to, his gambler weighs 17.5kg (38.5lbs). Here are some links...
