    2010 trailfox questions and geometry

    Anyone know where to find the specs on an older trailfox? I can't seem to find any archives for the geometry. I see a few used ones I would like to buy but here isn't any local I can demo or ride. Does anyone have the geometry specs for a small trailfox or know of a bike with the same geometry? Are these good all mountain bikes? Where I ride it isn't flat so a lot of fire road climbing with fast and steep descent.

    Thanks

    I have the stats for the 2009 Trailfox 01, which from memory is the same frame.

    Small size:
    Effective Top Tube: 565mm
    Seat tube: 420mm
    Headtube length: 125mm
    Head Angle: 68 degrees
    Seat tube angle: 73 degrees
    Rear chainstay length: 433mm
    Wheelbase: 1100

    I'd say the bike is a brilliant trail bike, pending on your idea of All mountain; it may not offer enough travel.

    Well... I don't do ramped jumps or drops over 3 feet so me asking for all mountain is probably not warranted.

    oh, and I believe the 09 has less travel. 130mm vrs 140 I believe. 2010 also uses a standard bearing size.

    If you go to the bmc website, go to the "bikes" pulldown, Bikes 2010

    It has an archive of all their 2010 bikes including both the trailfoxs

    Hi,
    I've just bought a mint 2009 Trailfox TF02 size M frame and I'm going to build it into a trail bike for my brother. I'm not getting any response from BMC about the specifications, though.
    Am I correct to assume, that the geometry for their 2009 and 2010 bikes is the same?
    Also, if someone could look up their bike manual and tell me what the recommended rear shock dimensions are (ETE, stroke) that would be super helpful. Is there any tolearance, or must it be spot on?
    I'm thinking 200x57 mm (or 7.875x2.25), according to the shock chart at enduroforksealsDOTcom (sorry, can't post link).
    Thank you very much for any answers,
    Matevz

    To answer my own question:

    Kinetics/ shock absorber BMC TF02 2009
    - Rear shock = FOX RP-2 with Pro Pedal & rebound adjust
    - Shock length = 200mm
    - Compression travel = 57mm
    - Shock width top end / bottom = 22.20mm
    - Shock installation bolts top / bottom = 8mm

    Thank you kind LBS, no thanks to BMC (infoATbmc-racingDOTcom), five mails in three weeks go unanswered.
