    I'll get some pics up on here soon, once I install my cranks, and finsh my wheel build. Guess I can just post up with the older wheels set once my cranks are on.

    My new wheelset will look more the part cause I'm doing silver and black spokes with silver nipples and of course black hoops. with yellow hubs for some contrast.
    That's going to look BALLER!

    We'll see how this weekend goes in the middle setting, but I am imagining that I will probably end up selling the Woodie and picking up a CCDB.

    EDIT: It also looks like your titanium spring is bigger OD than my steel spring. So that is probably why I can use the most progressive setting and you can't. I'm interested to know if your linear setting does the same thing once you get it built up though.
    Turbocharg,
    Did you just get your Jedi on VitalMTB's FB post as bike of the day?

    500# steelie on XL

    Turbocharged,
    No go on a 500. The RS Vivid coil I used rubbed on the sides of the tunnel. BUT, I can get a Ti 450 in there w/o rubbing. I'm going to put my '11 Jedi's Elka back in there w/ the proper spring, for now, and may look at a CCDB when this Sequestration BS is over (I'm a Fed employee). Chris mentioned he's experiencing some weird performance w/ Elka's beginning stroke rebound...

    Anyway, here are some shots...waiting to see if I go Saint/Zee for shifting before I finish wrapping the stays.

    Just an FYI, the CCDB and a 500 lb spring is a tough combo. The steel spring is pretty much the same length of the whole shock body. So when you put it on it's kinda tough, but a hell alot tougher to get off. I had to use a modified auto shock compressor and myself and two of my buddies to get the spring off of my CCDB.
    I'm 210, and bumped down to a 450lb, and it was actually perfect for me in the middle setting. This was on my 11' frame btw. Now I'm running a CCDBair on my 13'.
    .Hoog just texted me and said it's "Surface area to G2 tangential force vector ratio optimization. "

    Uhh, no haven't sent it in. I get full travel just fine. I run about 28% sag, and in the middle setting on the frame. Might go down to 30% sag and up my high speed compression. Just to get it more couch feeling!

    I think I have heard of a handful over the last few years but why?

    I can tell you its truly not needed on a Jedi and here is why:
    1)Too heavy
    2)You do not need 22 or 24 tooth front gear on a DH bike
    And this is why
    3)run a 32 tooth front CR and Canfield Brothers micro hub (9t) out rear (9-32,9-34, or 9-36 cassette options). You save the weight and gearing all day long.
    4)I ran a 32 tooth front ring last year with 9-27 cassette on my 2012 Jedi. I did several 3-5 hr All Mtn rides last year with other riders on All mtn bikes. These were in shape riders with good bikes and high skill level. I had no trouble riding up front all day. My Jedi was 35.5 lbs and I had a dropper post on it as well for full disclosure,
    lol.

    If you want the best light weight DH/AM/FR rig you might want to check out the Canfield One. Better pedaling platform if climbing is your thing.

    Hope that helps, PM if you need more info.
