Simon Metzner of Actofive is showing his latest CNC machined creation at Bespoked 2022; the P-Train 165. It is the German brand’s long-travel bike built specifically for enduro racing. It features the same high-pivot linkage as the P-Train 145, thus delivering a rearward axle path that necessitates the use of an idler pulley, but the new bike benefits from the addition of a floating brake arm that helps to isolate suspension movement from rear wheel braking forces.

The Actofive P-Train 165 weighs a claimed 4 kg for the frameset without the shock (S2) The latest Actofive P-Train is a modular platform that can run 145mm, 155mm, 165mm or 175mm rear wheel travel, dependent on the combination of link and shock. It replaces the original P-Train that was limited to just 135mm or 145mm travel, beefing up to meet the demands of EWS Racing.

High-pivot bikes and their rearward axle paths deliver an incredibly stable ride feel, but they do necessitate some additional hardware to manage the growing rear-center length. The idler pulley routes the chain closer to the main pivot to deal with chain growth and its undesirable consequence, pedal kickback. On the new P-Train Enduro Bike shown at Bespoked, there are two possible positions for that idler pulley.

Shown here in the lower of the two positions, the idler is located in the better position for pedaling. The higher position, that puts the chain closer to the main pivot, is better for descending as it reduces pedal […]
