    Cove Shocker Thread?

    Can't believe there's not one of these yet!!!

    Here's my contribution in the works...almost got it finished but am missing a few parts, wheels, cranks, other. This is just some crappy cell phone/garage pic. When she's finished I'll give you the full spread!

    Throw up them shockers!!!

    Nah its not too orange. Its sick

    Is that the SRS+? I'm going to get one of the coz I noticed on my first ride that when I hit my taco on a rock the whole chainguide twisted and the lower wheel thing hit the frame, I suppose thats the problem with the bottom bracket mounted chainguide. At least with the SRS+ the bash is mounted to the cranks so the chainguide should stay put. Also gone get different forks when I got the money, maybe black 40's.

    The bike is sick tho, still getting used to it.

    Yes...SRS+ I chose that over the taco do to the fact that I am constantly whacking my supercharger on rocks and would destroy a taco everyweek. I actually like the bb mounted chainguide as when I whack one of the pullies it will rotate vs. breaking the ISCG tabs off. I need a little give every now and then...

    I've yet to find the "sweet" spot lots of shocker riders have talked about but I'm getting close Guess I just gotta play around with her a bit, try different positions to find the one that really works for her to make her SCREAM!!!!

    Sick bike, I'm thinking about getting a 2010 boxxer race as well, can probably get one second hand for cheap.
    What wieght are you? you say your using a 450lb spring, I'm on a 500 steel spring that came with the frame but thinking this might be a little stiff.

    Ordered my SRS+ last night, this should stop the chainguide from rotating and hitting the frame since the bash is mounted to the cranks. It'll also add to my black and gold theme.

    I'm 180 pounds geared up and run a 450 most of the time. If the course is super nasty I'll run a 400 or a 425.

    don't think it'll be an issue, cove is likely basing their geometry chart on a 57cm fork.
