    The Production Privée Shan No5 will also accept 27.5in wheels too but you’ll need to swap the shock yoke to make the conversion.

    Production Privée Shan No5 review

    Very nice.
    Lovely paint job as always on PP bikes.

    I demoed the original Shan NO.5 on a demo day at FOD years ago now and got to meet Damien and talk about the bike.
    I owned a Shan and an Oka hardtail which I have always loved, but I wasn’t smitten with the bouncy version and in the end I bought a Rocket.

    Would like one of those if I didn’t need to pedal it back up.

    , I did experience some tyre rub on the seat tube of my bike after a trip to Bike Park Wales. I think the combination of 2.5in rear tyre and cased landings are the leading cause and it’s not something that I’ve noticed on local trails, which are more steep and rocky than fast and jumpy.

    This does come across as pretty over-forgiving TBH.
    Does the manufacturer specifically state that it only takes tyres up to 2.3 or 2.4″?
    If not then it’s a pretty dismal showing and the reviewer should fully call that out. Not try to say that it’s someone else’s fault and the bike is fine on mellower trails.

    Just seems very STW to gush about the steelness, and the paint job etc but then gloss over an absolutely fundamental design flaw.

    Crying out for custom painted fork lowers and crown.

    It looks like it’s an old review, are PP still going? Any new products? Listed after a shan at one point…..

    I bought and still own Andi’s original 5, still love it, as said, not so much climbing, but a hoot going down

    And I still have Andi’s Martini one from this article. I haven’t used it as much as I would like but even still, it just looks lovely hanging in the garage
