    Yeah, Shimano cranks in general are straightforward and bombproof, great chainrings and their BB's last better than most. More than I can say for sram - oops - typo, that should be some.

    I love the polished legend. Wish it was an option when I bought mine. I was one of the first batch owners (preordered in 2009) and still love it too much to even consider anything else. There will be some changes over the winter - new shock and probably a fork repainted black with new stickers. With Ti spring and old formula oro's managed to get it as low as 16.4kg on 2ply tires with no carbon but with a ti spring. With the new front wheel (799g on stans ztr) and early season fr casing schwables and a planned ccdb air I'd probably go way under 16kg. Now I have a few heavier parts (need to get my dura ace casette from the heavier rear wheel to the new one, and the heavier casette to the training spare wheel)

    This is my bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My bike is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My bike, without me, is useless. Without my bike, I am useless. I must ride my bike true. I must ride faster than any enemy who is trying to drop me. I must drop him before he drops me. I will... My bike and myself know that what counts in this war is not the air we catch, the whips we throw, nor the manuals we pull. We know that it is the Strava points that count. We will flow... My bike is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weakness, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its drive chain and its suspension. I will keep my bike clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will.... Before God I swear this creed. My bike and myself are the defenders of my trails. We are the masters of rock gardens. We are the saviors of my weekends. So be it, until victory is mine and there is no brake checking, but flow.

    Rear rim is old 823 - they were lighter than the current gen at 590 but stiff enough to use revolution spokes without loosing wheel stiffness.

    The new front wheel is a stans ZTR + pillar superspoke ss (lighter than sapim superspoke) + deetrax front hub (lighter than hope).

    I also have a ton of TI, Chunked stemcrown etc.

    Sweet bikes guys , how does these ride ? I might have a chance of getting a good deal on a frame ..

    The Legend is definitely a pretty stunning ride. I've spent time on the Giant Glory, the Norco DH and Aurum, and the Legend. I've also had a short amount of time riding the Devinci Wilson and the Pivot Phoenix. The Legend is certainly my favorite of all of these bikes.
    The Legend is very stable at speed, like any half decent DH bike should be. However, it is still very nimble and capable of quick line changes when necessary. This surprised me a bit, since I had expected the low and slack geometry to make it feel less nimble than the DH or the Glory, both of which have taller bottom brackets and steeper head angles. If anything, the Legend feels more nimble than either of those. Admittedly, this is possibly because the Legend always seems to be goading me to go faster, and it really comes to life when it is going fast. The low bottom bracket feels really planted in the corners, and the low center of gravity makes it very stable in the air. I also feel like the low stand-over height gives it an edge in the air compared to most other DH bikes I've been on; this thing is really fun to through around. The top tube sits so low that it always looks a bit funny to me how high the seatpost is raised up for a DH bike, just to get it to a reasonable height to be able to sit down occasionally.
    The suspension is happy to eat up decent sized hits at speed or on steeps without bogging down, probably largely due to the initial rearward axle path. This also creates a fair amount of chain growth which contributes to great pedaling efficiency, but I have never really noticed much in the way of pedal feedback. The Legend really responds when you put the power down coming out of a corner or getting up to speed.
    I do notice that there is a bit of a click as the suspension compresses from the clutch mechanism of the SRAM type 2 derailleur breaking free due to the chain growth (which was not as evident with the same derailleur on the Norco DH), but it is not noticeable while riding. Still, it bugs me a bit when I am just tooling around on the bike, and I may end up switching to a Saint derailleur and shifter next summer because of it.
    All in all though, the Legend just kills it, and I'd highly recommend one if you get the chance to get your hands on one.

    Wow that was an awesome review :) and it seems like you been on some really nice DH bikes to compare it too as well .. This frame reminds me of a Turner DHR looks wise .

    Is there any type of brake squat with this particular setup ? I loved the way my Kona Operator felt and the feedback i got from it , def felt nice in berms, didnt bog too much , and was planted to go faster and faster just couldnt get comfy with the frame, always felt like i was OTB all the time.

    Thank you; I love this bike, and I felt it deserved a good review. I can't say that I've ever felt noticeable brake squat or brake jack with the Legend. It has been very confidence-inspiring on some of the steepest sections of Winter Park's Trestle DH, Crested Butte's Avery trail, and Snowmass' Banzai DH trail. I have definitely found myself in situations on those trails where the terrain made me a bit nervous, but I felt like I could say to myself "Man, the bike can handle this: just trust it..." and it has certainly not let me down yet.

    I feel like I should mention something negative about the bike to be fair, but I just can't really come up with much. I felt like the Wilson (with it's shorter chainstays) felt a bit poppier and more playful, but maybe at the expense of the more planted and stable feeling that the Legend has at speed. Also, the Maxle lite rear axle seemed to be prone to failing after a season or so of hard use, but the new Ti axle (standard on the 2013 models) looks pretty bombproof. Other than those very minor quibbles, this bike just kills it!

    Since you're using a 28mms stem & I'm on a 15mms at 1.72m.

    Yes, that's what's said.
    But it depends on frames too.
    Have you read this, here ?

    By now you're all hopefully familiar with Shimano's new clutch derailleur system, Shadow+. If you're not, you should be. This revolutionary technology is the greatest thing since the dropper post and will greatly improve any ride. At the basic level, the clutch works similar to a coaster brake, which allows motion in only one direction, preventing the derailleur cage from rotating and thereby keeping the chain tight at all times, helping to eliminate chain slap and improve shift consistency. Much like its XTR predecessor, the clutch on the Saint derailleur does its job very well. The chain still occasionally contacts the chainstay, so you'll want to use a chainstay guard, but it's far less frequent than a traditional derailleur.

    Now then, after praising the clutch mechanism, we have to point out one fatal flaw that can potentially negate the improvements provided by the clutch. On day one, our test bike was legitimately noisier than a traditional derailleur. How can that be? It turns out that the rather large clutch knuckle/switch portion of the derailleur was hitting the chainstay, not the chain.

    After introducing a new direct-mount derailleur hanger at Sea Otter this year, Shimano had to design the new Saint derailleur to work with both traditional and direct-mount hangers. Herein lies the problem. When installed, the direct-mount hanger positions the derailleur lower and further back than a traditional hanger. Because none of the bikes at the launch were outfitted with the direct-mount hanger, compatibility and clearance issues became readily obvious. Nearly every bike without an up-sloping chainstay had the same issue, and some more-so than others, particularly FSR designs. To remedy the problem, Shimano's techs added more b-tension to some bikes and inserted a "mode converter" on others.

    It's not about shifting but more about the derailleur hitting the swingarm, just drop a few stair steps to see that.

    Hey there, Rune V2 owner here and currently looking to replace my Kona Operator with a new DH Sled. Anyone care to share his thoughts regarding the Legend and if it's worth a buy? I've to decide between Aurum, TR450 and the Legend.
    Anyone knows if there will be more or less huge changes to the upcoming 2014 model? Keith, maybe you can shed some light on this? Would hate to invest lots of money if 3 months later the new models with lots of improvements are announced...
  • 05-03-2013

    From what i know, no new changes are around the corner but even if there were it won't matter because the Legend is one of the raddest DH bikes ever. Its respectable with weight, pops/playful, jumps well and is very condident inspiring through the rough stuff. I've been on the same one since they were released and in that timespan all my friends have replaces theor frames more than once and even one of my good buddies settled on a legend.

    Anyhow, I'm using a CCDB Air in the Legend and would like to align the valve so it's pointing upwards. Can anyone tell me if it's okay if I simply twist the piston, or do I really have to disassmble the air can, re-align the whole thing, and the re-assemble again?

    Edit:
    oh, and torquening values for the bushings would be great (rear & shockmount).

    Edit:
    oh, and torquening values for the bushings would be great (rear & shockmount).

    You can turn the shock valve pretty easily once you let all the air out... it's infinitely adjustable. This shows the position I would recommend Banshee Legend MKII - Tested - Pinkbike

    The only bushings on the MkII are the DU bushings in the shock.

    Shock bolts should be tightened to 15Nm
    Main pivot (above BB) to 10Nm
    All other pivots to 8Nm

    Thanks Keith, I thought it's be easier to reach the valve if it shows to the upside but looks like I'll leave things like they are right now.

    Can't wait to build the ride, I guess I have a few more rounds on my Rune then...

    Btw., outstanding customer care from you and your german distributor everyday26.de, really appreciate it!

    Hey, I'm planning to use the Hope Step Down headset for my Legend. I'm just wondering if the cups aren't to small - the cups' height is around 7-10 mm. Isn't that to small for a full blown DH setup? Should I use larger cups or isn't this a problem for the steering tube at all?

    FSA stepdown on mine, not huge cups either but seems fine.

    Hi fellow riders. Any tips to remove the suspension linkage so I can get access to the bearings. I can't remove the axles. :(
    Thanks

    Just undo the axle bolts, and then tap the axle through with a punch... it's a simple process by my require some shock force knock the axles through if they have not been regularly maintained.

    Remember to apply antiseize grease to the axles before reassembling.

    Yeah, mine hasn't been maintained in a long time.
    What do you use to tap it? I will have to deliver a few good punches and I don't want to damage them.

    Thanks for the help builttoride
    Cheers

    If the pivots haven't been maintained for a long time then there is the chance that the antiseize grease has got a bit thin and the Ti axles can kind of fuse slightly with the steel of the bearings. This shouldn't be too hard to break tho... some sharp light cracks of a hammer should be enough to break it.

    I would recommend to use a regular hammer (not a ruber mallet) as the shock from the metal hammer will help break and bonding. It shouldn't require heavy blows, just fast sharp taps to break bonds and work the axle out bit by bit. It should come out easily once you have got it moving.

    If you don't have a punch that fits well, you could use an allen key inserted into the axle that butts up on the interior far end. The axles are strong, but try to avoid damaging the internal threads.

    Anyone running the CCDB Air in their Legend and care to share some details on their setup? (Rider weight, Sag, number of Volume Spacers etc...)

    I'm already familiar with the suggested base tune from cane creek but I was wondering if anyone is running something different (e.g. less than the suggested three large volume spacers, more LSC etc...)

    any suggestions for positioning the fork bumpers? Both top- and downtube seem to use the same tube wall thickness, so I guess it doesn't matter if the bumpers face the top-/downtube?

    Good question! The downtube is significantly thicker than the top tube in that location, so it is important to put the bumpers on the downtube, and to avoid the unsupported section... so I recommend positioning the bumpers so that they make contat at the very bottom of the downtube (where the gusset is built in to the hydroforming), as this is the strongest location.

    I flash back to those that remember Adam Brayton's frame the year he got injured badly. It's a little different now though. What a brilliant bike though! The spec is beneath. :thumbsup:

    Just a quick question related to the Legend's bottom bracket: I have installed two different cranksets (both Shimano) and have noticed that the chain ring does not align when I spin the cranks, it looks like the chain ring is bent a little bit to the inside since it does not run smooth.
    I have installed two brand new Shimano Zee cranksets (since I initially thought there was something wrong with the first one) but it turned out the problem appears with both cranksets.

    I have corrected my previous post. Of course it's not related to the frame itself, since the chain ring "wobbles" from left to right (ca. 1mm): Guess I was unlucky with my two cranksets :(

    Where did you guys get new decals? I think a re-paint or polish is next along with new bearings. I love the Dorado on this bike.

    Aaaaaand, not as stoked at the mid-way point of summer. Noticed this beauty on day one of a trip to Silver Star; wraps right around under the top tube and up the other side :(
