    Woah, a Cook Bros Racing red anodized crankset...I remember breaking a set of those back in the mid 90's and almost killing myself landing a jump. Kudos to you if you still have a set that is intact that haven't blown up yet.

    I have two of them. They should hold up fine if they are used for their intended purpose.

    You think ? I think AM and FR is fuzzy also . Lets try something new lets call it mountain biking.

    My Sxtrail is my xc/am/fr/lightDH rig and is built to take the FR punishment. I had a 30lb enduro and this rig far out performs it in every climbing aspect which makes up 80% of the good trailriding in az. It also helps my fork goes down to a 100mm sweetness.

    Here are the specs:

    Frame : '05 Mountain Cycle San Andreas DNA Anodized Pewter (7.5 lbs with shock); 7-7.75 inches of travel but set at 7 inches.
    interesting...what's with the pivoting seat triangle? i'm not too familiar with mountain cycles...do they have several old frames with that feature? cool bike.

    The seat assembly doesn't pivot with the suspension. It is adjustable to change the seat angle and top tube length. Same as my two San Andreases on post # 1349.

    You my want to familiarize yourself with Mountain Cycle, they make the best all around mountain bike ever! Here is the Mountain Cycle forum:

    Commencal Meta 5.5 Vip

    Hi All

    Here is my new Meta 5.5 Vip that I just finished building. Here are the specs and some pics:

    Frame: Meta 5.5 2008 size M
    Fork: RS Revelation U-turn
    Shock: Fox RP23
    Headset: Chris King
    Wheels: Chris King hubs, DT Competition/Revolution, Mavic XM819, Continental Explorer UST
    Drivetrain: XTR (2008 but the old crankset)
    Shifters: XTR triggers
    Brakes: Formula Oro K24 in white with white braided cables and Formula 180 mm discs
    Handlebar: Ritchey WCS Carbon with WCS foam grips
    Stem: White Ritchey WCS

    That's sweet!! Same exact fork I have. See this post: Revelation setup on a San Andreas?

    What is your setup on the fork?

    I got the stem from Bike-discount.de - but it is already out of stock again, I think it is some sort of a limited edition. A few websites carry it still though. Actually, I will be changing it to a 120 mm Thomson X4, the current one is too short and I do not trust the WCS in 120 mm :-)

    I guess the only thing I would do different is to use green King hubs.... but that would be being very picky!

    "I guess the only thing I would do different is to use green King hubs.... "

    don't worry, that's next on my schedule. These are from my other bike (S-Works Epic FSR).

    But would the green anodized hubs fit the frame (headset just for colour reference)? I wonder if the red (or of course, black) is actually better? The red goes well with the rebound adjusters on both the Fox and the RS.

    Hmmm I would probably go with the green or the black... But again, it's me being picky... Enjoy your ride, I might look at one of those next. I like the idea of the raised chainstays to avoid suck

    Thanks! As far as I know only the San Andreas in their lineup has that feature. It's basically a way of slightly adjusting the seat tube angle and top tube length.

    It rides and feel's "right", I have a 50mm 0 degree rise stem which is very agressive. 130mm is fine and I can actually get away with 100mm for climbs...somehow.

    I have the 03 Heckler too and it rode miles better with a 150mm Sherman than a 120mm Black. Given the changes in geometry you can see the reasoning in fork choice.

    The Roco Air is awesome. I've tried Fox and Manitou and disliked them both (the manitou more so). I was about to give up on air and get a coil shock but decided to give this a try; I'm glad I did. Its easily adjustable and feels awesome. I definitely recommend it.

    your frame is a khs, they look identical except my cable routing is on the top of the top tube. Later '07 frames move the cables under the TT.

    mine is set up with Shimano hone, Marz AM2 5.5 travel, Fox DHX Coil 5.0 and weighs in at 33 lb. but I'm sure both ride the same. which is awsome.

    Yeah a lot of people have said this frame is similar to quite a few out there including some name brands. I know it might not be as good, but it has taken a lot and held up great so I can't complain.

    the frame is good. it may not have the name of a lot of the boutique brands. The KHS team used this frame for their 4 x dh racing. it is tough and pedals as well as my old xc bike. maybe not as fast because of the weight but it can take the technicals and rock gardens ascending and descending. I will be going clipless tomorrow, that should really help my climbing.

    Nice bike mate with a logical set up...sweet.

    How are you liking the Ergo-grips...? I have beenmeaning to try them and have walked past them on the shelf more times than I care to think...but...just never put the dosh down for them. I really want to try them first for a good solid 2 days of riding in a few different conditions I guess and fork out the cash to get them.

    You will love the grips. Mine are the large and I think I could have gone for the small or the "womens" size. I used to get sore hands all the time and with these it isn't an issue.

    How are you liking the Ergo-grips...? I have beenmeaning to try them and have walked past them on the shelf more times than I care to think...but...just never put the dosh down for them. I really want to try them first for a good solid 2 days of riding in a few different conditions I guess and fork out the cash to get them.

    Nice ride. Not something I thought I would have said about a goose. I am old school and have been bent since their demise in the late 90's to low end crap but I would be happy to sport that rig..

    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    thanks. it's a solid bike. great confidence booster for me. i think mongoose is making a strong comeback. all my friends who haven't ridden it say it's crap, but those who have taken a spin on it love it.

    Oh and a nice old 575.

    not quite. some will argue it is, but it isn't. the bb and rear triangle rotate around separate axis and are connected with a small link. it lowers chain growth but doesn't completely eliminate it.

    1500 British pounds right. Hmmm.. Bout 3000 USD...I just got an 06 575 for 2000 USD. But the component spec was a bit lower grade.... Van 32, RF Evolve cranks, no Thomson, etc. But still a great bike!

    I like the fork a lot, despite the fact that it is heavy. I like the stiffness of the dual crown and the solid feel of the "beefie" front end (I'm a big fat sack O' lard)

    Also on this bike I can drop the seat all the way down, the fork all the way up and PRESTO instant DH bike.

    I have not rebuilt the fork yet, only has a few months on it even though it's an 06. I finished the build in Dec. 07

    I have looked at the manual for rebuilding this fork and it looks reasonable as far as service goes.

    I also run a similar fender on my Heckler, (different brand and design), but I can't tell you how many rocks that thing deflects from hitting me in the face!!! (plus it's awesome on water crossings and when theres mud now and then)

    Every time a rock ricochets off my fender I wonder how I rode without the fender???

    I assume it's because of the big tires I run these days and the huge rubber knobs that must grab up rocks and spit them out???

    Anyway, I wonder how everyone else doesn't end up with rocks in their teeth???

    Well I ride mostly rocky trails, and have never been hit by a pebble in the face.
    Gotta hand it to you though, It must be great when you're on your way back home and theres water on the road. I usually have to make a funny face and try to dodge the water coming up if I can't jump the puddle....
    BUT I hate things like that on my bike...
    Neither my bike nor any of my brother's bikes have reflectors, lights or fenders of any kind. My light is strapped on my Camelbak and the front spotter is only on it when I go for nightriding so...

    I can't stand fenders on mountain bikes. Never seen one that looks good. I've ridden just about every terrain there is, and have never need one. And at water crossings, i just loft my front wheel and manual thru them. If they are wide and/or deep, a fender isn't going to do jack ****.

    I beg to differ... This one looks hot!!!

    Ride some mud and rocks and you'll see... Fenders are awesome...

    Fenders have a use, mainly here in the UK actually where we suffer from a bit too much mud.

    like we say in portuguese:

    opinions are like cun#!$%!#$ts!
    Some give/offer, others don`t!

    and... tastes are personal!

    Fender can be:
    Practical and functional
    be a security item (if you have muck on your eyes...)

    of course no one will use a Mr.Crud or a Marzo Fork fender with good weather! dduuhh

    I hate it when people talk to you as if you've never ridden....
    I have ridden both mud and rocks (sometimes combined..) and have never felt the need to purchase a fender. It reminds me of that people who install everything on their bikes, like rearview mirrors lol.

    That Honda prototype DH bike is interesting btw.

    I’d rather put a mud guard on than have to get yet more mud out of my riding gear or get the shock serviced cos everything lands on it.

    You guys want to have a look at my Flickr pics, I’ve got some nice pics of fenders being used in sunny weather and in snow.

    I got fenders on two of my bikes. I don't care what people think but I like em.
    I tried it on the Quake and it looked nasty, but it blended well with my Mountaincycles.

    I use to like the old Reign frame better but after looking at your picture, I prefer the new design better than the old. Rear shock adjustments is easier with the new design and at least now you can run a piggyback shock. I also like the way the lower link is now attached to the lower end of the shock like that of the IH Sunday. I'll wait for Wheelworld to have a close-out on those and get myself a frame. I'd slap my '06 170mm 66 RC2x from my DNA and install a 7.875 x 2.25 piggyback shock at the rear to increase the travel to 170mm at the back.

    Since she's so small I could go with fairly light components with no fear she'd could break anything.

    So far her riding and confidence have improved by leaps and bounds... a good bike can do that.








    Turner 6-Pack with 5.5 Spot rockers and a 7.875x2.25 rp23 (the shock is in need of a rebuild, flea-bay bait and switch but should be fine after being PU$H'd).

    The bike is now my main ride for trail riding. I use the bike for extended distance rides and reserve my Flux for racing or road to trail retunting by road training rides over 60 miles.

    According to my bathroom scale it weights 15.8kg / ~34.8 lbs. It's a 18" (L) frame.

    On my Mavic 325 rims, 2.4 Nobby Nics are about 60mm wide. On smaller rims they turn into a rounder shape and become narrower.

    The "normal" NN has pretty weak sidewalls. I recommend the SnakeSkin reinforced version.

    Have you got any experience with Maxxis Highrollers 2,35?
    If so, how can you rate the Nobby-Nic 2,4?
    In VTT Magazine, they are almost equal with the Maxxis Highrollers ST (42a)... although lighter!

    highrollers in the region of 850 grm
    NN 675 grm (less 175 grm)

    (manufacture weigh!)

    We all know how wheel weight influence bike performance,but personally I prefer grip to better acceleration.
    If you have experience with both tires, would appreciate your opinion

    Almost equal, what discipline? Should be a completely different tire if you ask me. Super-soft DH racing tire against low rolling resistance endurance racing...

    Goin' old school here... but a new bike soon, hopefully.

    2003 Specialized Enduro Comp, size small.

    Upgrades: Not much.... Panaracer Fire XC Pros, new XT rear der, Avid BBDBs, Lizard Skins grips, WTB Rocket V seat.



    I love it to death but can't really ride it anymore. Have to use my crappy ol' XC hardtail.

    I have the NN in the rear and it is absolutely the best rear tire I have ever had. I use the BB in the front and it hooks up like no other.

    Ha

    at least the bike is sturdy enough. I am not likely to break anything on it, the way I ride (except derailers and hangers...).
