    I haven't looked that hard, but have never came across a coil spring CCDB in the right size. Where did you find, and how do you like?

    Btw, your Pike and ENVE wheels are defective, please send them to me for evaluation.

    I got the CCDB at Universal Cycles.

    As a bigger rider, it really helps with midstroke support. Loving it so far.

    yeah, coil is the way to go for bigger guys really. and really, there is no air shock that is equal to a coil, hence every maker of an air shock saying it offers a coil like ride.

    Oh, how I wish I ordered a CCDB coil with my prime...instead of the Air. All along I had this gut feeling it was the way to go...

    Already sent my CCDB Air in for sleeve issues...thankfully, covered by warranty.

    Hey Guys,

    I have had a looksie on the website etc.. however I can't find an exploded view of the prime frame.

    I need to replace the bearings and wanted to make sure it all goes back together correctly

    Also am I correct in thinking that a bearing tool such as this might do the trick?

    Superstar Components - High Spec Parts For Peanuts

    In the 608 and 6001 sizes.

    I already have the replacement SKF bearings.

    But could do with the tools.

    Thanks!

    p.s. keep the photos coming

    From the looks of it, yes, should work for whatever bearings you need to remove/install on a lot of frames. If you want some other ideas, you could check out my thread from when I did my Trance Trance Bearing replacement How To.

    Sharp eyes! This Ashland trip was my first ride on the Avy cartridge. I found it to be a significant improvement over the stock Fox damper. I felt like it did a much better job of smoothing out the trail chatter while not diving under hard braking or cornering. Last year on the same trails my hands were really taking a beating. This year was a different story.

    To be fair, I did replace the wiper seals and air head seals at the same time I installed the cartridge. I also used the new Fox gold 20w oil in the lowers (at least on the air spring side, damper side is now open bath). I'm sure this also contributed to the lack of stiction, but the way the fork stayed up in its travel while remaining plush was all down to the Avy cart.

    Nice pic from a ride out in Crowsnest Pass, AB. Nothing overly tech, but a scenic shot.

    Hi guys,
    I need some help. Can anyone with a XL confirm that the wheelbase is actually 48 inches as per the website?
    I'm 5 foot 11 and can get a good deal on a XL, but afraid it may be too big for me.

    Cheers.

    If you pass, please let me know where, I've been looking for an XL but refuse to buy new to experiment full-suspension first.

    Yep, 48". At 5'11" you are too small for an XL unless you have a freaky short inseam, like 28" and really long arms. XL Banshees are bigger than most other companies XL's. I'm 6'4" with shortish legs and run a 60mm stem on mine, fits like a glove.

    I'm 6'3" on a (pre-production) large, and it fits me and my short legs/long torso perfectly. It also fit my friend well at 5'11" and 34" inseam. I suspect a XL will be too much for you.

    As the others said, an XL is WAY too big for you, way too big. I'm 6'2.25" long a$$ arms and legs and I have an XL pre-production because that's what I always rode (XLs) and the Large was too small, ended up running a 65mm stem and 785mm wide bar and it was fun, but now on a Large Phantom with the 450mm Reach, same bar/stem and it feels much better.

    If you can wait a week or so I'll be getting rid of my medium yellow frame once my Phantom gets here. I'm 5'11 and it fits me well for a longer travel bike with a 60-70mm stem and 760mm bars.
