Before wrenching on your axles, please make certain the 6mm allen key is inserted at least 8mm's into the axle. A little grease on the threads and frame interface will extend the life of your axles - and frameset.
The Groove Pony uses a BB92 bottom bracket. Be certain to use the recommended spacers depending on the brand of bottom bracket you are installing.
The Peacemaker uses a 42/52 integrated headset. It comes stock with a complete Cane Creek assembly. There are no additional cups to press into the frame.
Note: The Groove Pony is not compatible with the Chris King DropSet upper bearing/assembly due to the height of the bearing - bummer, we know but it's actually not that uncommon of a thing. It requires a shallow upper bearing height.
The Groove Pony uses a dedicated 1X drivetrain. It does not accommodate a front derailleur.
We recommend removing the three plastic hose shields prior to installing the rear derailleur housing, rear brake hose and dropper post housing. Full length housing is required for the installation of any of the mentioned components. It is also recommended that you route the above mentioned housing prior to installing the bottom bracket, fork and headset as you will need access to housing through those openings.
The rear derailleur cable should be routed through the thin white cable guide tubes and the rear brake hose should be routed through the larger white guide that can be found inside your head tube and sticking out of your chainstay. The dropper post guide
Foam hose wrap - Keeping those hoses quiet.
The Groove Pony uses a 31.6 seat post and a 35mm clamp (34.9).
Dropper post maximum insertion lengths are as follows:
SM 150MM | MD 180MM | LG 230MM | XL 280MM
The Peacemaker accepts either 160mm or 180mm Post Mount disc brakes.
