    Is it just me or do some of the Rush's come with extremely wide handlebars. We have an 800 at our shop and good gosh those things are wide.

    I used to cut every handlebars I had... It's better to have a too wide bar than a too narrow, it's easy to cut it, not as easy to make it wider. Any shop can cut it down if you want to.

    Team Colors

    I must admit I wasn't as big a fan of the 2006 team replica paint as the 2005. But every time I see the new colors they look great. That raw finish with the black is realy sharp.

    I'm glad someone finally posted a Rush - the stores around here (Ontario) are still waiting on their first shipments of the Rush, so I have yet to see one.

    I'm eyeing up a Rush 2000

    Do you have any more pictures of your Rush 1000? Better yet, do you have any initial impressions on the ride?

    Thanks in advance.

    You know there is something strange w/ those cranks. I don't think this it FSA Afterburner that is specced on the bike. Just take a look at this Prophet 1000 and you can see the difference. Conspiracy?

    Crazy internet, just crazy! Double post... Might as well say something else:

    Looks like the Mavic Crossland Lefty uses a Cannondale front hub, possible since it doesn't use crazy proprietary spokes like the Crossmax...

    Crazy I tell ya!

    Agreed, that plastic disc between the cassette and spokes belong on a crappy bike, not on you Rush. But it's the first time I see plastic pedal clip-ins for eggbeaters... Still, take these off too.

    I have already removed the plastic between the cassette and spokes. I did it befor the first ride. The plastic platform on the egg beaters have been taken off as well. Those pictures were taken when I took the bike from the store (never ridden).

    like all cheaper c-dale models, start with the wheels and tires. Then as you budget goes deeper get some light hydro stoppers like xtr with non dual control xt levers and run etierh titanium or aluminum rotors. Get you a better crank. an xtr crank will save you another 400 to 500 grams. If you don't want to spend that kind of jack take a look at the race face dues. Those are good cranks as well an 2/3 of the price.

    also get some carbon bars/seat post/ and a Fizik Gobi saddle.

    Thanks! I found some mavic wheels w/ xtr hubs for a decent price but don't know if they'll work since they don't have the six bolt disc brake attachment points. They're a different type.

    They are the shimano centerlock hubs. There are a couple of centerlock adapters available that convert the hub to a normal 6 bolt pattern or you can just buy some centerlock rotors. It would be much cheaper to buy the adapter and use your current rotors.

    Ok, I will Bite -- My New Rush 800

    My new 800. Replaces an 02 Jekyll 800.

    Size Large. I am 6'0" with a 33" inseam, just in case you are wondering (some are it seems).

    2 rides so far on a mix of surfaces and terrain (and all at 26 degrees F ... brrr).

    Love it. Stock, but dumped the egg beaters for Shimano SPD's due to all my shoes having Shimano cleats on them (for now) .

    Took the pics with flash on in a darker room to get the reflective effect on the decals. Can post daylight pics as well for those interested in the look as most will see it.

    Cheers.

    Alternate color for 1000

    Here is my Rush 1000 during it's build up phase.
    I dumped the wide riser and put on a flat carbon.
    Also needed to get a little more out of the seatpost .
    So I went with the Thomson.
    Great riding bike.

    the reflective decals are real cool. the rush is a sweet bike. i think looks wise, its a way better bike then the prophet, although i think the prophet with the higher bottom bracket is a better bike for me

    Visually or technically? Visually, the Prophet's top tube(s) are actually two tubes while the Rush has only one curved tube. Prophets look more like Big Foots too since they sit higher from the ground.

    Your stock crankset weighs 840 grams
    Your stock BB weighs about 330grams (UN25 weight - shimano don't list the UN26 - assume OEM only)
    Total of 1170 grams
    XTR weighs 797 grams cranks /rings/BB

    That is a savings of 373 grams (0.82 lbs).

    You should note that an XT crank/rings/bb weighs in at 860 grams, or a 310 gram (0.68 lb) saving from stock.

    Or a Race Face Deus for 830 grams. (340g / 0.75lbs).

    The XT and RF sets will save you $$$ over the XTR set and still save ton's of weight.

    Happy Weight Weenie Work

    Looks like a galvanized 2000. This is the first picture I have seen of that colour.

    Do you happen to know the weight of your stock Rush 2000? Any other comments on the ride?

    Why the large over the medium?

    Cheers.

    Thanks...I ordered the Moca brown 2000 in a med BUT it was WAY too small for me...So I sold it on ebay and ordered a frame in large.....As for the weight, I dont have a scale But I will be going to a shop this weekend so I could find out...as for the size increase..the frame felt great in a med BUT the fork was in too close. If I hit anything I would go over the handlebars ...all of my weight was over the front end...Now since the frame swap it feel like a 18 inch hardtale with a 23 inch top tube(I know that the toptube legenth is NOT 23 inches but now it feels balanced)..

    that makes sense as to why the decals aren't the glow in the dark decals. I guess I still am yet to see a galvanized Rush 2000. I should get to test ride a medium in a little over a week, I'll look out for the sensation you mention regarding too much of my weight over the front of the bike.

    My father has a galvanised Rush 2000 and it looks great and a nice match for my Galvanized Prophet 4000. The prophet wieghed in at 12.2 kg while the Rush was 12.4 kg. Not too much weight difference considering the cost of the 2 bikes - The crossmax SLs would be nice on the Rush IMO.. I'll try to get some photos this weekend as we're both doing a 7 hr race.

    Photo's will be great.
    Though I really wasn't expecting a Rush 2000 to be over 27 lbs. Thanks for your figures.

    Me neither, my Prophet 2000 is about that! Doesn't make it any less of a nice bike!

    When you look at the similarities of the two frames (same swingarm) and a 40mm reduction in travel it's hard to see how there could be a significant weight difference. The main components are all the same on both the Rush and Prophet. It's worth noting that my Prophet has tubeless Pythons and not the Hi Rollers so there is about a 400g saving there, but the Pythons are more comparable to the Rush's tyres. Trying to compare apples with apples but remember my Prophet is a 4000, the Rush is a 2000.

Trying to compare apples with apples but remember my Prophet is a 4000, the Rush is a 2000.
    To be clear, I wasn't questioning the low weight of your very high end Prophet. I was just a little surprised at the weight of the Rush 2000. Though with several reported Rush 1000 weights of 29lb's, it sounds reasonable (though dissapointing).

    The next point regarding the similarities of the frames, yes and no. The swingarms are similar but not identical (Prophet has dual shock positions). Of course the additional frame member, but the most telling aspect, which is the most difficult to determine is varying tube wall thickness. There is no easy (non desructive) way of comparing the varying wall thickness on each frame.

    I guess I was hoping stock the Rush 2000 would be lighter than the Trek Fuel EX9. Which by my count (and Cannondale's claimed frame weight - it was).

Not too much weight difference considering the cost of the 2 bikes - The crossmax SLs would be nice on the Rush IMO.. I'll try to get some photos this weekend as we're both doing a 7 hr race.
    Hello Again - Mountain Bike have now posted their review online:

    Their numbers on the Rush 2000 (large) are very close to yours

    26lb 13oz without pedals = 12,172 g (approx)
    Egg beaters are 266grams (Stainless Model)

    Total: 12,438 g

    Good so far, here is a much more detailed account.

    It accelerates really well, I havent got used to climbing with it, seems I have to get out of the seat more and hammer. I like to sit and grind. I love the HA on the bike though!

    Do you know how much your 600 weighs? or how about that 800? I'm getting a Rush in the spring and haven't decided on which model. I don't know about the dual control on the 800 and I ride Crank Bros. pedals, which is on the 800. The 1000 is probably my best bet as far as setup goes (both trigger shifters and Eggbeaters), but may be a bit out of my price range.

    Bugger is heavy, I think the 1000 weighs 28+ lbs. WHy not get the 600 and swap out for new trigger shifters and eggbeaters if that is what you are looking for in an upgrade. Cheaper too than buying the 1000 compared to the 600, plus you get hydros not mechs
