    Post your Jekyll mk 2's

    Hopefully I will be getting my Carbon Jekyll frame-set soon, and I'm looking for some inspiration for what to use to build it up. I noticed that their is no thread with everyones 2011 mk 2 Jekyll's, so i though i would start one.

    So lets see those Jekyll's !!

    Great pics. Love the night one with the light

    The Green finish is really starting to grow on me (which is just as well as i have been told that's the finish i'm getting for the warranty replacement), how does it look in the flesh compared to pictures?

    What size is yours?

    Got my frame, just waiting for all the new parts to arrive to get it built up, the wait has been long and painful, but hopefully worth it

    Chicko,

    The bike has been having a rest since 6 days of non stop abuse in Moab. The bike is awesome, totally love it.

    The only problem I had was the bolt holding the shock on kept loosening and the annoyed clicking noise would come back. Nothing else apart from that!

    The biking season is ending here in Calgary so time to tuck up the bike soon and get the snowboard out!

    I took plenty of footage of my trip to moab so will try and get a little video together for viewing.

    Glad to hear your loving it, im desperate to get mine built up..

    I did wonder about the single sided bolt shock mounting design. I had hassle with the mounting shock bolts on my Rize, although i solved all the issues by replacing the stock bolts with ones designed for a Orangle Pro 5.

    What have you done to solve the bolt issue ?

    Looks great NRain. How are you liking it? How do you feel it perform against the other bikes in your riding group?

    Picked up my bike at the end of January so getting close to a year on the green machine.

    One picture of me on a snowy ride on the jekyll and then an early season ride in the desert.

    2012 Jekyll 3

    Took out my new jekyll to the freeride section at Curt Gowdy here in Wyoming. Tore up the downhills and pedaled up to the top better than my hardtail.

    Impressive! That frame (no shock) is about 50g lighter than a medium Rush Carbon frame.

    Your right, its a very impressive weight, especially when you take into account the incredible stiffness of the carbon Jekyll frame.

    Its also lighter then my old Rize Carbon frame without the shocks;

    Jekyll Carbon, Large = 2262g

    Rize Carbon, Large = 2330g

    Not that any of this matter but after pulling up my actual notes, I have a correction to post #32.

    Rush Carbon, Medium = 2220 (no headset bearings) (or 2532g with RP2)

    Regardless, I didn't expect this AM 150mm frame to weigh so little. I'd be all over this if we had terrain that requires 150mm.

    It would be interesting to know the weight of a Large Rush Carbon frame without a shock fitted..

    Since they use the same rear swing arm, there shouldn't be much difference. The front triangle is 1048g (on med) so I would say no more than +50g diff.

    Do you guys think my cables seem a tad too long?
    Seems like it to me. They rub a lot on the fork crown.

    Just this one. I never think to take pictures of my bike when I'm riding. This one was actually taken during the test ride. Hence the reflectors.

    I read that the revelation forks won't take it but possibly the fox will. As for the back it looks like it would be really close.

    I just finished my build about 1am last night. I have had the bike for about a month. Its a replacement for my enduro. Its a 2012 Jekyll carbon 2. I changed the bar and stem to Easton havocs, The fork is an rc2dh lyrik, and the wheels are stans flows with xt hubs running conti 2.4 trail kings.

    It turned out great I think. Stuck it in the scale, right around 32 lbs. Not bad for a durable, capable all around bike.
