DV9 V1 Specific FAQs

All our manuals are available here.

The short answer is no. We intentionally designed the frame so that a 27.5” x 2.8” plus tire would not fit. Mounting 27.5” plus tires would lower the bottom bracket too far, causing issues with pedal strikes.

That said, we wanted to make the DV9 as versatile as possible, so we made it compatible with high volume 29” x 2.6” tires. They deliver the same excellent traction and control you experience with 27.5” plus tires, without causing pedal strikes.

The DV9 can accommodate up to a 29” x 2.6” tire in the rear.

The max chainring for a DV9 is a 34t.

Yes, the max size oval chainring we recommend is a 32T. Not all oval chainrings are the same, so we recommend double checking clearance before installation.

Remove the ports on both sides. Put a slight down bend on the housing and grease the end. Insert the housing through the port on the BB. It should slide right in, but you may need to give it twist to get the housing started. Use a pick to get the housing out of the port near the derailleur hanger. Make sure to slide the port back on the BB side and the hanger side.

The DV9 frame weighs 1204g (or 2.6 lbs). Complete builds start at 20 lbs.
