    My Jekyll 2 carbon!



    Just got word my Jekyll 2 carbon has shipped and will be here Friday.

    lots of pics to come but I was just happy to hear the bike shipped, and 20 days earlier then they said it would.

    Update picked the bike up today and got it all built up, so far I am very impressed! going for a ride in the morning to do some test and tuning.








    sag indicator


    picture form some of the miles I have put in so far.

    I'm assuming the sag indicator came on your bike? I heard the 2012 Jekyll's would come with this and the owners of the 2011 Jekyll's would receive them!

    "Flow" is characteristic of the rider, not of the trail.

    I know

    It really is an amazing bike, I cannot get over how well it rides, how little pedal bob there is and how it saves my ass when I choose a bad line.

    EDIT: forgot the pic, mine on it's first ride

    That beefy frame looks bad @$$ in black!
    I also like the way the linkage is designed to go around a mounted water bottle cage

    That does look flipping sweet.

    Doh, almost decided on a Claymore, but that makes me want the Jeykll again.

    I have a feeling it's going to come down to shipping date. Anyone know when the 2012 models are out?

    We should have dealer catalogs withing the next month or so for the 2012 stuff. but 2011 carbon Jekylls are shipping currently and Alloys should be here real soon. Not sure about the Claymores though.

    Very nice bike...I have the same one

    The only thing that i don't like are the brake levers and calipers in white. I will change as soon as posible for the grey cr or the XO in grey.

    Just got my Jekyll Carbon 2 on 7/13

    Stoked! My Jekyll Carbon 2 came in last week...just in time for my vacation. I was bummed that I would have to take my old bike First ride was this morning, impressed. Like some have mentioned on the web I found the stock settings for the Dyad to be too stiff...move up two lines on the rear shock adjustment chart. I'm also excited I got the medium...I was waffling a bit. All the best to you other Jekyll riders out there... I waited two months...and...it was worth it. Pictures and review to follow in a bit.

    OMG, that's one hot bike! I just checked the price and it seems pretty decent for a carbon bike. Not bad.

    Nice congrats! the shock settings are all just a ball park, myself I have mine set higher then shown on the chart and I am very happy with the performance. and the rebound slower then recommended, again its personal preference mixed with riding style, but it was nice of fox/c'dale to give us a starting point.

    Thanks man its a lot of bike for the money, all the parts work very well and are durable and that's what I ask for in a bike.
