    Heres my Rockhopper. I know its not an AM rig but Im poor and its what I got lol I'm probably gonna throw a Recon 351 U-Turn 85mm-130mm on it next. I still ride XC trails as well so the low travel will be nice for the quick turn in. I would love to have some sweet AM trails around here but Florida sucks!

    Incredible build! I have come pretty close to buying a ridge lately, I am a huge fan of sinister and absolutely love my gruitr. How do you like the rigid fork? Whats the a2c?

    I'm not a weenie thats into ride quality or compliance; i just want a sturdy if not overbuilt straight leg fork... as long as its the right height, clearance, and bmx style (aka offset in the dropouts, not at the crown or by way of raking legs). The DMR matched per each of these factors. I like a steep head angle and the 440mm (listed) a2c works perfectly for me. The fork itself comes up a little shy of 440, so i threw the +5mm King baseplate on there to give me a little extra.

    Hardtail reduces consciousness to a primal state of reacting. Show me that full squishers.

    Haha - MSRP on that fork alone is almost twice MSRP on the whole bike.

    Cotic Soul 2010

    Recently bought a orange P7 - see a couple of threads back, but the frame was too big for me - felt like a tank (stand over height was the issue).

    Stripped the P7 frame and sold it on, bought the Cotic Soul (medium 17 1/2 inch), finished building up earlier today.

    First ride tomorrow.

    Is that seat-post inserted enough in the frame? LOL,there is almost as much seat-post sticking out as there is seat-tube on the frame. Looks like you need to move up a size.

    Nice build though, look strong and fun.

    The angles are all sorts of messed up on that bike, but thats what happens when you put a 140mm fork on a bike that was designed around 80mm. The 40mm stem must make things even more goofy. Bike that is too big + long travel fork + FR shorty stem = WTF geometry + handling.

    Out of curiosity did you change to a 9 speed chain when you put that crankset on or are you running a 9 sp crankset with a 7 speed chain?

    The off set and gap dimensions were the same for the chain rings on the gxp and the stock crankset. So no problems arose. And there is no difference between the size of a 9 speed chain and a 7 speed chain. All are 3/32" regardless of speed.

    3/32 is the (inner) roller width. what matters is the (outer) width from plate to plate. funny though: a quick msmt of a PC-870 against a PC 971 showed about the same outer width.. though my eyeball aint so good without a vernier caliper. I'm sure someone else'll post up on this..

    7/8/9 speed chains all have different outer widths...and different combination's of cassettes/rings/chains can cause problems. That said, a narrow chain (9 speed) will work on any setup. I am guessing that in the post I referred to (which the poster confirmed through his measurements) the crankset that came ont he 7 speed drivetrain was using a narrow chain and equivalent spacing on the rings. It would save shimano money to only do one setup, and since it would work with any rear (7/8/9) they would not have problems.

    I still am wondering, however, why someone would buy a $600 shock, a $150 crankset, and other parts for a $350 bike that looks to be way to big.

    Correct it WAS a $350 bike. However the frame is a beast and is great for the type of riding I do. Basically in the end I spent $350 on shifters and a frame. Yes the bike may be big, but being that I am 6'5" it is actually a very good fit for me. Just because it wouldn't fit one person doesn't mean the bike wouldn't be a perfect fit for another.

    That being said, good to know about the the chains, I just thought there was a difference in design between the two, such as actual joint and metallurgical construction, not size difference. Just new technology and stuff. Good to know.
