FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

- Due to the rear suspension layout, a coil shock will sadly not fit this bike
- Can I use an angled headset on the Hornet?
- Absolutely, up to 1° or 6 mm reach extend, just make sure you check the size.
- Can I run a mullet setup? 29 in/27,5 in
- Yes, you can. Due to the slacker angles, it will feel brilliant but quite different. Max tire: 27.5X2.8
- Why can’t I take the battery out?
- The closed frame is lighter, stronger and the battery cannot move whatsoever. In addition, the high capacity cell would be very dangerous in a backpack as backup due to its considerable weight. It is also protected from theft.

- We recommend Shimano’s app.
