    I was just given a badboy disc... It's awesome, but I want to be able to mountain bike. Is there anyway I get the headshok and use it with this frame? The reason I ask is that it appears the frames of the two bikes (disc vs. ultra) are slightly different. It looks like the badboy ultra frame is angled to the ground more than the disc... does that make sense?

    I love my BB Ultra but it seems to spend more time off the road with a leaking damper cartridge than it does on the road.

    It depends where you're based for getting a 2009 or 2010 Disc or Ultra.

    If you're in the US I would go for a 2010. Disc or Ultra, that's is tough? The headshok can be a pain.

    New badboy owner

    Hi Guys,

    Just joined this forum with the premise of being associated with other Badboy owners! Judging by the posts you guys seem to be diehard fans. Good to know.

    Got mine about a month ago.

    Had a Rockhopper for around 10 years which I bought 2nd hand off a mate which cost me zilch! Rode the pants of it, chopped the bars down and put some fatboys on it. Loved it to death! Unfortutantely it got pinched whilst in Hackney a month a go.

    I was gutted (more sentiment than anything else) and 6 hours without a bike was sending mad lol. I needed to get the thing serviced and judging by the amount miles I done after the last one I think it would have costed more than the bike was worth. So be it - it was taken from me so it was time to move on.

    Was considering a Trek 7 or a Scott. I had heard about the Badboys (mainly lefty's) from friends but didn't pay them much attention. I wasn't that much into them when they come out. I saw a lot of couriers using them. After modifying my Rockhopper I got caught up in the hybrid world. The 700 just looked like a beast! I had to get it!

    I still can't believe how light the thing is! Rode it to Richmond and back without any complaints. Well worth the money!

    A couple of things I thought were bit pants. Manly cheap components.

    I the stem fastening bolt snapped while I was tightening it and the grips have started to unravel. Also wasn't that happy with Evans's construction efforts with the bike. It took them 3 attempts to get it right. But apart from that everything else about the bike is just great!

    Any recommendations/changes for a BB 700 newbie?

    Buy a pair or Ergon GC3 grips, maybe change the rear mech to an X-9 Long Cage, apart from that I would leave it alone.

    December for the 2010 models. I think I would rather get the 2009 model ultra than the 2010.
