    No interference with a medium 08 I ran a ti spring and original steel spring and even a manitou spring at one point no fitment issues

    I don't have access to either, but I'm pretty sure the '11 would be the same as my '13 so I'll give what info I have.

    I have several shock options, Elka Stage 5 is the skinniest with 1.38 spring Inner Diameter, CCDB is next with a 1.43 spring ID, and biggest is the RS Vivid R2C with a 1.5 spring ID.

    Elka stage 5 with a 450 spring fits in all 3 holes just fine no rubbing. Same shock with 550 Ti spring only fits bottom and middle holes (my Ti spring has a 1.38 ID, but has a larger Outer Diam than the stock 450 steel), spring comes into contact with the sidewalls during compression in the top hole.

    CCDB with a 450 spring fits in all 3 holes just fine, no rubbing. Same shock with a 400 and 450 Ti spring fits all 3 holes just fine, no rubbing. This is my brother's setup so I do not know how a heavier spring would sit, I imagine anything 500 or up would start having issues.

    RS Vivid with a 450 spring fits ONLY the middle hole, directly hits the link in the bottom hole rubs the frame under compression on the top hole. I tried a 550 steel spring and it would not fit in the frame at all. Any Ti spring would be the same issue as far as I know as they are naturally thicker than steel.

    As far as know, the Vivid and the Avalanche Chubbie are the only ones that have the larger 1.5 spring ID, and Fox and Marz share the 1.38.

    1st Major upgrade in over a decade! The aging 2001 Straight 8 is still a monster on the trails but I feel/felt it's time for something new! Picked up a Small 2011, It feels amazing bouncing around on in the parking lot and at the same time it feels totally weird being that I've only known nothing better then the ol' nostalgic and the vintage Lawwill rig.. Weighed in at just a tad over 37lbs.! about 4lbs lighter then the Straight8. It was a toss up! The geometry of both the small and medium Jedi's were extremely close to that of the small Straght8's geo. I'm super excited! the vertical and back path of the rear wheel is what drew me more towards the Jedi being that that's what the Lawwill design pretty much did and was told by Vin it would be a good transition. Anyhow, Can't wait to hit the trails! and " Let It Buck!! "

    Good job!

    Well my frame arrived a couple of days ago and what can I say....? This thing is beautiful! I know most of you guys already have your own Jedi's but seeing it in the flesh/metal it really does strike you what a great piece of design & manufacturing this thing is - the pictures on the website don't really do it justice. I'm really pleased with the Canfield wheels I got too.

    Have ordered a couple more components already (forks & bars) and will post a couple of pics next week when I've had a bit of time to get organised & set up in the garage.

    Another happy customer - thanks to Vin & Sean for taking care of my order

    Hello everybody,

    My name is Vincent and I live in Holland.
    I've been looking for a Jedi XL for a while now and thanks to Vin (KillingtonVT) I finally got my hands on a frameset!

    Ok, I started building mine yesterday and everything went pretty smooth. I installed everything in the hour (except for the rotors and chain, since there are no wheels yet).

    After getting the chainline right (I only had to add spacers behind the chainguide), I noticed something worrying. The distances between the cranks and the swingarm are different.

    right crank - swingarm: 6mm
    left crank - swingarm: 14mm

    But the distance between cranks and the downtube are also off, but the other way around...

    right crank - downtube: 60mm
    left crank - downtube: 54mm

    So this should mean that the crankaxle, or bottom brack are out of true...
    It just doesn't look like that. Everything seems straight and there are no uneven spaces between swingarm, frame or links...

    Later, Ik tied a line from one dropout, around the headtube, back to the other dropout. The distance inbetween the line and the seattube where 44mm (driveside) and 34mm (non driveside). You can see the difference on these pics.

    More ghettolike:

    The ownersmanual of a Jedi 2012 says:
    When everything is installed correctly you will have equal distance between swing arm/crank arms on both sides. Use your index finger as a reference.

    On the driveside It feels like a young virgin when trying to get my finger in and on the non-driveside it's more like a MILF with 6 kids

    okay, you need 39mm on both side, it looks like the swing arm is to driveside... maybe the swing arm is not mount okay to the front piece disassemble the rear end and built together wit the spacer.. check again otherwise this frame is twisted to one side

    i have saint cranks and i use two BB spacer on the no drive side and one spacer on the drive side.

    ride.

    I took apart the frame but could detect nothing really special about the seperate parts, except from 2 stuck bearings, I took them out, then they started rotating again and I could put them back without problems.

    Thanks, but that's indeed what I already stated in my first post about this problem:

    In addition: It is a (brandnew) HT2 BB and it fitted in very smoothly, so the BB is not the problem. Also the Zee cranks are brandnew.

    It's not the "crank vs downtube offset" that I'm the most worried about, that might even be a spacer-issue.

    It's the out of true swingarm that's worrying me. On my last two pictures (with the cord) you can see that it has nothing to do with the BB.

    Make the crank in left two spacer under the bb and right one.. Than you must have in front same space between ... Otherwise the bb is not angular!,

    I received an email from Vin yesterday. At Canfield they all agree that something definitely happened that twisted the frame in one of it's past homes. They can offer me a crash replacement rear, although we can not guarantee it will 100% correct the problem.

    I'm gonna build the bike up and ride it first. When it turns out to be a problem, I might consider ordering a new swingarm.

    Today I received my Saint derailleur and shifter (sweet!), I expect my cassette and saddle to come in on friday. After that all I need is a couple of paychecks and a wheelset (in that order).

    but first it's Christmas. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    Vinny,
    Provided your wheels are dished and straight, put the rear wheel into the frame w/o rubber, and take a measure of the crank arm tip to the rim. This may give you an idea if the bike will at least track straight.

    question:

    Is it wise to use a clutch derailleur with a Jedi?
    Since a clutch might limit the chain too much to 'grow' when using the bike's full suspension...

    That's a good question, I would like to know this as well. From what I understand the upper pulley is there to keep the chain from "growing" when the suspension does. Technically the chain should not extend at all when under compression, but I'd like to hear what the bro's say about this one...

    Since a clutch might limit the chain too much to 'grow' when using the bike's full suspension...
    I have been using a "clutch" since last spring when I built my 2013. The only issue for me is the clunking sensation when someone pushes down on my bike in the parking lot. This is not noticeable on trail though.

    Paid Spamage for a XL frame/shock/guide: 2013 Jedi F1 XL Frame, Shock, Guide - Buy and Sell and Review Mountain Bikes and Accessories

    The price isn't firm, but don't send me Pink Bike offers
    And, I need the funds to put towards the DVO frt and rear, so no traders.
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.
