    Clyde style mods to my Hoss

    Hey all,

    Just got the bike back from the LBS and its ahd a few extras bolted on to it.

    RS Pike 426 Coil U-turn and a set of Mavic 321's with silver Hope Pro 2 Hubs

    Its great!




    Currently got an X Firm spring in it but need to run it at 120mm travel at the moment to deal with my 340lbs lol

    Nice. I bet I would've liked my Hoss a lot better with a fork like that on the front. How do you like the geometry? I'd imagine the extra fork height would slacken the HA out a bit, how does it handle set up like that?

    i originally lowered it through the Uturn to 100mm to match the old fork but it kinda felt wrong!

    Ive currently got it at 120mm as duer to my 340lbs the X firm spring does not give me 20% sag, more like 35ish. So im running 20mm more to compensate for the extra sag.

    Until i loose some weight its the best i can do now.

    Will let you know how it rides on the trails after the weekend, only ridden it around the street so far
