    Burly 6point build weight!

    Just weighed my bike for the first time!

    39.6 pounds. Thats with a 66SL, a Maxxis Mobster 2.7 front tire (1320g), Panaracer fire FR 2.4 rear (870g), Very heavy platform clipless pedals. DT Swiss 6.1 rims with OEM hubs. Marzocchi ROCO TST with Ti coil. FSA gap crankset.

    Very heavy parts on other words.

    I'd weigh it again.
    I'd have to guess that your components are less burly than mine. My front tire weighs a pound heavier than the back tire and I have heavy duty tubes in the tires. They can add over a pound easily. I am running a coil shock albeit Ti. My Shimano 645 dx pedals weigh over a pound. My DT swiss 6.1 rims are heavy (620g/1.36lbs each). Fork is only .5lbs lighter than a 66RC2X so not a huge gain for you there. I run a 83mm heavy crankset and my rear hub is 150mm x 12mm.
    I researched frame weights and it looks like the Reign X frame is the same or heavier than the 6point8 frame.

    So you must have a much lighter parts spec than mine. The 6point8 stock build from IH weighs 34.3 pounds, add the 1 pound the 66RC2 adds and that would be 35.3lbs.
    All my parts except fork and shock came off of a 06' 7point5.

    So I could definitely lower the weight alot but the coil shock rules and I am happy to have the dual-ply tire on the front.

    As I replace broken/wornout parts I will lighten up some things but I doubt I will ever get below 38lbs. Heavyduty tubes/tires are just too important for the terrain I ride.

    Edit; I think I figured it out. It must be the extra .3 inches of travel I have.
    Or the LBS' scale was wrong but it feels like 40lbs.

    Here's another riders Reign X setup and weight from RideMonkey:
    2007 Giant Reign X review

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    So I’ve been on this thing for about a month now, and figured it was time to give a review. Still need to ride it in a few more places to get a full feel for it, and need to get the suspension dialed a bit better.

    Spec:
    Reign X frame 18” (built up from frameset only)
    Marz ’06 66 sl @170mm
    DHX 3.0 coil
    Azonic Headlock
    Bontrager Earl wheelset
    Planet X Stem
    Easton EA70 bars 685mm
    Lizard Skins lock on grips
    Sram x.7 shifters
    Sram x.7 rear derailleur
    Deore front derailleur
    Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    Giant internal headset
    Truvativ Holzfeller crankset
    Truvativ Howitzer BB
    Crank Bros Mallet C pedals
    E.13 DRS
    WTB Speed V seat
    Bontrager Select seatpost
    Shimano crap cassette
    Hutchinson Barracuda 2.3 front tire
    Hutchinson Piranha 2.3 rear tire

    Misc Measurements:

    Frame weight: 9.0 Lbs exactly with shock (no headset)
    BB height: 13.8"
    Wheelbase: almost 45.5" exactly

    Weight: a hefty 38.8 lbs

    Air shocks and AM build vs. coil shock and FR build seems to equate to about 4lbs on these bikes. it's funny, your fr version 6points and Reign X's are heavier than my DH bike!

    Actually, i'd really love to have a spare longer stroke CCDB and Totem, for some rides that would be the sick setup, 13.8 bb, 7 inches of travel....

    Good job! Another 7" Path conversion

    My new Path 7" 6point6 conversion:


    And its first on-trail action, on Chiquito, courtesy of Winston:




    It's super plush w/ a Totem up front and a pushed DHX (loaner from the shop while my Roco TST is on order), and pedals *really* well for a ~39 pound bike.

    Already has a few bumps & bruises on it, but none on me! The only fall I took was blamed on my Sidis and wet rocks while trying to get into position to take some pictures. :)

    New 6 point here.

    I bought the bike on closeout and just used the frame.

    Fox Van RC2 fork
    Old school Van RC rear shock 8.5x2.5
    Juicy's
    Headset extender from enduro. (Thanks to those who mentioned this.)

    The headset extender and the 8.5 rear shock give the bike a 66.5 HA and a 13" B.B. height.

    Geo feels great to me. I never tried it stock.

    Very NICE !

    Great setup and the geo looks absolutely perfect !

    How does the old school Fox RC work on it ? I have one as well but I need to get the right spring for it. Any pedal smacking with the BB being that low ?

    I got my 6point4 right after Christmas, its awesome! I swaped out the forks w/ my old Domains, ordered a DHX 5.0 (w/2.75" stroke) for the rear, then swaped out a few other parts from my old bike. I'll post some pics up as soon as my shock comes in.

    hey BLABLABLA sick setup. I got one of those extenders too,still don't know if I need to use it or not, but was wondering what did you use to remove the internal bottom headset cup?

    6 Point

    Here my new 6 Point !

    It weighs 34# with the following mods:

    XT cassette
    Hutchinson Barracuda lite tires 2.35 + Light tubes (for trail)
    Marzochhi 55 TST
    Wellgo Magnesium pedals
    Gravity lite crank arms
    FSA isis BB
    Husselfelt stem and bars
    SDG seat and Post
    Enduro Headset extender
    ....Awaiting a stinger dual chain guide

    I also modified the DHX-air on my 6point by adding plastic inside the outer sleeve to take up the extra air space. Here is the link to the modification: DHX air upgraded with the RP3 air sleeve The shock has way more mid stroke support now and doesn't blow through the travel anymore. This should help greatly with pedal smacking. I did this to my Bottle Rocket last year to help with bottom resistance and it worked amazingly well. The difference in the shock is much more noticable on the 6 Point DHX though because the outer air sleeve on the 6 point is much larger than the Bottle rocket DHX air sleeve as shown in the first picture. I should be able to get some rides in tommorow to test it out some more. The snow is just starting to melt !

    6 Point 7

    Well here it is almost done, awaiting a chain guide and a few other bits, but pretty much done. The sale RS Cycle had on the 6.4s seems to have prompted a few last minute purchases.

    TZ - is that a Totem on your 6point. How does the bike feel in terms of head angle. I have mine with the 2007 RC2X 180mm and still feels like it could be a little slacker, so I am considering the externalizer headset option. How are you finding the E540s holding up. I am in the process of getting another rear wheel built up, likely a hadley hub on either a 721 or Syncros DS28.

    Do you find any clearance issues with using the 2,75" stroke shock?

    Very nice bike

    Several of my riding friends run 8.75 x 2.75 shocks on their 6Point frames with no issues.

    Paired with a 180mm travel fork (Totem or 66) its one fun handling ride.

    Like Winston said-no issues. Even DW mentioned in another thread that it was ok. The rear triangle is basically the same as the 7point. With that in mind the, 6point is the burliest bike for it weight(well in my opinion).

    Sounds good, thanks.
    I'm kinda pleased with my setup as it is, pictured furter up in this thread somewhere, but the curiossity of change always lurkes in background. For trail riding I find my current setup close to perfect, but would like to slacken the hta for gravity riding.
    Have been thinking about getting a 8,5x2,5" shock to slacken the front a bit, but got curios about that 8,75x2,75" combined with a Enduro extender setup too. Well, we'll se.. First of all this white stuff on the ground needs to go away.

    Good memories from last season

    A few of us arounf the shop have been thinking about trying an 8.5 by 2.5. We want that lower slacker geo. Any feedback on how the suspension feels? DW, any comment on how it afects the progression rate?

    Thanks

    I agree, my set up feels great, but I also wouldn't mind having a little more slack for the DH. Right now its not bothering me too much. I've thought about the extender(I even bought one) but I haven put it on yet. I just didn't want go through the work of removing the bottom internal cup, because you can achieve the same angle with just a 180mm fork (which I plan on getting, some time)
    As for the 8.5" shock, I would really think about it. The BB is already pretty low, my pedals seem to hit random rocks every now and again (but not a super big deal). The 8.5" would slacken it a bit, w/ an even lower BB. But then again, if that was an issue you could just get a shorter crank set. In my opinion the winning combo is still the 2.75” stroke shock with a 180mm up front = added travel, slacker HA, and a slightly higher BB. Anyways...good luck

    I ran a short shock on my old 7 point too.
    My feeling is the suspension operates with a little more chain growth. And a little more anti squat. I don't mind it at all. Might be noticeable in the granny gear but I don't use one. I think it might have a little less small bump compliance as well. Bottom out feels the same. Real smooth. I'm curious what DW would say as well.

    Its so much better with the slack and low geo for my purposes..

    anybody have an idea of how much an 8.5" shock slacks out the head angle? based on blah's numbers, seems like maybe about 1/2 deg? maybe a whole degree, considering the a2c on the Fox fork may be less than the stock Marzocchi on the 6.4.

    Can someone tell me if the 6 point series requires a 1 1/8 internal headset?

    I have a frame on the way and I was planning on using a king...

    A Chris King won't work. You need something like this: FSA Orbit Z Zerostack

    Thank you very much, that saved me some time.

    OK, so gentlemen, here is the question. I am building up a 07 6.4 frame from the ground up, first thing I did was order a 5.0 air to replace the 3 because I wanted the propedal. I have the build pretty much already purchased, other than the fork.

    I am trying to decided between these.

    -RS Lyrik Solo Air
    -Fox Van 36
    -Fox Float 36

    I weigh around around 230 w/ gear at the moment and I run a Fox 40 on the Sunday so I am somewhat partial to fox since they have always taken good care of me. But the Lyrik interests me because all of the praise I hear, but I have never touched one.

    So... What are your thoughts?


    My build as follows:
    07 IH 6.4
    08 Fox DHX 5 Air
    Fork ?????
    Saint Cranks w/ E.13 DRS
    XO Shifters
    X9 rear mech
    XTR Front
    Sunline Bars
    Thomson Stem
    Thomson Post
    Hadley hubs on 819 or 823s
    Avid Codes
    Maxxis Rubber

    It's not going to be lite, but neither is the rider

    Well, first and foremost, outside of saving 0.0000012 of a pound on the X-O and spending more than twice as much, I'd tell you to go with X-9 shifters. I love mine and they feel the same. They're basically last years' X-9 just without carbon fiber.

    Go with an XT or X9 front deraileur, too. Again, you're just paying too much for a difference that you'll never notice.

    As far as forks, go with someone coil That's just me. I love my Fox rear suspension, but I TRULY love my Rock Shox from suspension. I've got a Totem on my big bike, and a Pike on the other bike (7point and . The Lyric is an awesome fork, but I've yet to ride it. If it's half as good as my Totem and my Pike, I'd still be in love with it. I'm sold on Rock Shox. BUT... I'd really recommend going with a Coil fork for someone of your weight. Have you had issues with Fox or any other brand and running an air-sprung shock/fork in the past?

    Just curious.
    Meh.

    I already have the shifters, and I can pick up the front D for around 40 bones, so thats why I listed those.

    I got to spend some time on a Totem solo air, and didn't have any problems, also spent a few runs in angelfire on a boxxer world cup and although it was not as smooth as a coil because of the psi I had to run for the right amount of sag, it held up great and I liked it's responsiveness.

    I can pick up an 08 Float 36 cheaper than I can pick up a vanilla at the moment, that's why the float is in the equation.

    So I finally got the bike built up, after coming from a Sunday all I can say is the dw link is still where it's at as far as I'm concerned. Only thing I am going to change in the near future is swapping out the dhx for a rocco coil when it gets here this week and also a new Thomson post.

    My build as follows:
    07 IH 6.4
    08 Rocco Coil
    Fork Marz 55
    Saint Cranks w/ Gamut p40
    XO Shifter
    X9 rear mech
    Control Tech Bars
    Thomson Stem
    Thomson Post
    Hadley hubs on Syncros FR's
    Avid Codes
    Kona Wah Wah Pedals
    Maxxis Rubber

    Let me join the club...

    Just ordered up a closeout 2007 6Point4! 15" size. Swapping most of my stuff from my 07 Preston frame (just haven't been able to get used to the feel of that bike) other than keeping the BB/crank/rear wheel setup.

    Juicy brakes, SRAM drive bits, Thomson stem/Sunline bar, Gravity Dropper post, Hope Bulb 20mm front wheel; can't wait!

    66ATA up front ought to give me just shy of 67 degrees, and could even go slacker with the RWC lower headset external cup. Don't think I'll want to , but it's a nice option to have. I'm no big hucker/jumper, just like slack bikes!

    Then all the parts get swapped onto the Preston for sale. Win-win for me!

    6 Point 7 Update

    Okay finally got the new wheels built. I normally wouldn't worry about matching things up on the bike like hub color but since I ended up with a red Hadley on the back, I wanted to find a good quality red hub for the front. It took a while but finally managed to get a decent deal on a Chris King.

    I may have saved a little weight over the stock wheels, but I hopefully have a much strong wheelset now in place.

    I also manage to snag an excellent deal on a set of new Juicy 7's to replace the older ones.

    Last little add-on what a chain guide to keep things quieter and hopefully avoid any ill timed chain drops. Okay here goes with the pics.




    and some pics taken, although my photo skills are not great, here goes.

    Okay I'm busted. For what every reason that old stem just keeps making its way from bike to bike. I did have a nice stem before the fugly KONA one, however the threads stripped out when tightening onto the steerer tube. I ended up stopping by my LBS and they had it for $5 or $10 in the parts bin.

    The old stem may look ugly and weighs a ton but it has worked, but I guess this bike really deserves something better looking. I can always keep the old one as a spare ...

    Haha... glad you didn't take me seriously. The bike is a beaut, that's for sure.

    I have a few misc. parts that have made the transfer between bikes. The BB on my '05 7point was installed on the bike in mid-2006 when I bought it. But it came from a 2004 Iron Horse SGS Pro. It's destroyed, and sounds like someone chewing gravel when I pedal, but it works, and that's all that matters. :-)

    Rideitall,

    It looks great ! I love the way that ROCO looks against the black of the frame and those wheels should be indestructable.

    I'm absolutely loving my 6Point after modifying the shock canister )air curve) on my DHX air. I haven't had any pedal smacks since and the bike rides WAY better overall.

    How do you like the Marz ROCO air ?

    By the way, I highly recommend the headset by Enduro, it makes my ride feel dialed my Marz 55TST fork.

    DirtDiggler,
    The ROCO air feels very nice, seems to perfectly balance the 66 RC2X. You feel the ramp up at end of stroke but it does not feel harsh in any way. On the slower techincal trails I would say it at least equals or perhaps even better then the DHX-C I had on my Nomad. I need to hit up some faster trails to see how the high speed setup on the shock is. Haven't had enough rides to attest for its longevity, or all ride conditions but so far (fingers crossed) so good.

    At least for now I am holding off onthe Enduro headset externalizer. I seem to have found the balance point for the bike, so I don't notice the head angle any more. I would guess your setup with the 55 and the Enduro and mine with the 66 should be pretty close in terms of head angle. The 2007 66 (180mm) is 565 A2C any idea on the 55.

    I have a new IH convertee. A buddy of mine just bought a small 6Point6 frame and will transfer all the parts off his old Gemini. If it works out he will only require a fork, stem, seatpost, maybe bottom bracket as well.

    Cheers

    Good luck, 6points are awesome. I think most of the 07s are sold out. so you might have to settle for a 08. Check out www.beyondbikes.com

    Hi,

    We have a 2008 6.6 17 inch in stock at The Path. We will usually take the parts off our complete bikes and sell you just the frame if you like, and this would not be a problem in this case. We also have a medium 2008 6.4.

    I did quite a bit of searching to locate one, I only found one source online...a small shop in New York and I live in Portland OR, seems like most of the 07's are gone in 17". I found a 6.8 for 3k, but it was the only one! The 6.8 isn't available in 08 either

    6 Point 7 Update

    Well, I guess it's done, at least for now.

    I found a stem to replace the old one that looks a little better, cut the steerer tube down a little and lowered the bar height. The last change is a Manitou Evolver ISX-6 air shock.

    Only one ride in very marginal conditions so not too much to report. I does seem to ride very nice helps the rear tire stay on the ground, didn't get in much for jumps/drops so no comment as yet. Might not be quite as plush as the Roco Air TST but haven't had much time for testing with the various air pressures.

    Anyways here are a few updated snaps.

    On the ISX-6, it does take a little while to break in. I'd also suggest trying 50 psi in the IFP chamber to see if that helps, especially during break-in.
    I stopped driving my bike into my garage - I'm now protected with Roof Rack Ranger app for my iPhone.

    The good news is you can slam that saddle out of the way for steep chunky trails, jumps and drops.

    What's your 6 point weigh as shown? I am considering doing the same. Taking parts off of my 7 point and building a 6 point with a Totem solo air.

    Don't know for sure but my guess would be 36# with the Totem Coil. Frame with DHXa weighed in at 8.5#.

    I will weigh and post back. It does feel/ride heavy with a DH specific front tire.

    Can't do a comprehensive review as of yet; need to dial in the 6Point and spend more time riding it.

    Here are my observations so far:

    CLIMBING: The 6Point is a bit harder to climb but that is likely because it is 3lbs heavier and 1.5lbs of that is in the front tire. On techy/rocky climbs, they both climb as good though I'd pick the Pack for that due to slightly higher BB (less pedal strikes). The rear of the 6Point does stiffen up a bit under power but not enough to make it harsh as compared to my Pack where it remains fully active and would sometimes dive when going over a dip even under power.

    DROPS: they both feel the same.

    BRAKING: Braking in rough, the Six Pack has slight advantage as the rear feels more active; I can more easily lock up the rear on the 6Point indicating a slightly less active rear end while on the brakes.

    SQUARE EDGE: The 6Point does take on square edge hits better (does not hang up on square edge-high speed hits). I did notice a little pedal feedback on sharp edge rocks but very minimal: proabbly just as much as my Pack or dare I say a tiny bit less.

    CORNERING: 6 Point slightly better probably due to lower BB (it currently sits at 13.75BB - shock is 1/8 shorter; my pack sits at 14.1BB).

    Scuba,

    How does it feel with the geo of the 2.5 shock? Low and slack is very appealing! Are you still selling a 19" 6point frame??

    Thanks

    The shock in the picture is just shy of 8.75 i2i which lowered the BB back to stock and slackened the angles a bit. According to my cheap angle finder, the current SA is 72.5 and HA is 67.5. Those numbers are pretty close to my 6Pack with SA of 72 and HA of 67. So it's no surprise they ride very similar.

    I have ridden a 6Point with an 8.5x2.5 shock & Lyrik up front; BB sits at 13.6, HA I think was around 67*. I really liked this slack and low version of the 6Point on downhill and corners; a bit tricky on rocky climbs (gotta watch those pedals) but very nice overall. You can actually achieve the same effective BB if you run 35% sag on an 8.75x.2.75 shock and get the benefit of longer travel.

    The Large frame is on its way to its new owner.

    Rideitall - What made you switch to the ISX? Just trying it out? Which shock are you liking more? I used a Swinger 4-way air on my 7Point for a few months and loved it but ended up selling the bike. So far my modified DHX-air is working pretty well on my 6 Point. I have the outer canister filled with plastic so it ramps up super quick and feels more like a small-can fox float. The ROCO air has been very tempting though...

    Hey all,

    Just picked up an 07 6 point 8 frameset (half price )

    Just built it up and taken it for a quick blast - Amazing. Truly amazing. Climbs like a hardtail and has to be the best bike I've ridden down hill by a long way. That's without adjusting the stock shock settings.

    Its pretty heavy though ! more than I thought but stupidly heavy bb/cranks and a 66rcx on the front.

    Can anyone suggest a 30.0 seatpost with layback, can't seem to find one.

    Does IH allow shimming - does it invalidate the warranty. Save a lot of hassle.

    Anyone know where I can find the serial number of the frame - Its not on the bb shell.

    I still have the Roco TST and picked up an ISX to try it out (self confessed gear pig). The ISX does ride a little higher in the travel, ramps up very well and controlled. I might need to send the shock back to Manitou as I don't think the low speed compression is doing much (no real change from full open to full closed).

    The Roco TST Air might be a touch plusher on the full on high speed but both work extremely well. The adjustments on the ISX are more involved (6 way) vs the Roco TST R, in which the TST lever adjusts the compression (low speed only I believe). I would take either of them over the DHX-C.

    I haven't had too much time on the big bike as I have been riding my trail bike to get into shape, and have been working too much as well.

    In the next few weeks I hope to get lots more riding time and perhaps can comment further.

    Thanks Allan,

    no I own a steppenwolf twixter 4x hardtail as well:-)

    My 6 is not ready weight is very high with the dh tire/wheelset. 16.5 kg
    Front derailleur and wheels will be changed.

    I've also tuned the dhx air with a plastic shim inside the outter air sleeve. I hope to get the missing parts today, so I could do some riding this weekend.
    By the way: For those of you who ride a e13 drs guid, how many spacers do you have on the drive site between bb and frame?



    Cheers Da_KillerK

    Da_KillerK -

    Very nice 6 Point for sure, I love that color! Good thinking on filling the outer sleeve too. I have mine totally filled with plastic and it makes a HUGE difference...especially the mid stroke. It sort of feels like having a FOX AVA sleeve on the shock. Your going to love the bike, it just gets better each time you ride it.

    You can achieve the same thing by switching to the small RP23 canister. But the large canister seems to work really well on that frame.

    I DO NOT have any spacers on the drive side. I use one spacer on the non-drive side.

    Yeah, RP23 small can air sleeve works awesome. I had that setup on my Bottle Rocket and loved it. Do they make a small RP23 sleeve in 8.75" X 2.5" ?

    Filling the outer sleeve really makes a difference on this bike. I used to slam my pedals on rocks with the stock setup, now it ramps up higher in the travel and I can drop the air pressure way down. The result is better small bump compliance without blowing through the travel, and less pedal smackage.

    Nice! I'm glad your trying that shock, that was high up on my list of shocks so I would love to hear more when you get some good rides in on it. I managed to find a brand new old school Vanilla RC for $50.00 that I'm going to be trying on this ride soon. It should be a pogo stick but tons of fun.

    The Roco TST Air might be a touch plusher on the full on high speed but both work extremely well. The adjustments on the ISX are more involved (6 way) vs the Roco TST R, in which the TST lever adjusts the compression (low speed only I believe). I would take either of them over the DHX-C.

    I haven't had too much time on the big bike as I have been riding my trail bike to get into shape, and have been working too much as well.

    In the next few weeks I hope to get lots more riding time and perhaps can comment further.

    you'd be surprised how good a shox with no adjustments feels on the DW linkage. I was worried when I switched to my ROCO RC. It feels load better than my Air shox with lockout and floodgate.

    i just bought a 07 6point4 for half the price and i've already ride it! It looks really reallyyyyyyyy promising! I'm not posting any pics cos it is not changed from the original specs. I love this bike! There is only one thing that bothers me and it is the fork (marz all mountain 4). Maybe i will change it in the future, cos i like the top regulations :P

    cheers

    Is it rude to install a double crown fork in a 6point? I mean, i've already seen pictures of guys putting them in their 6point bikes, but is it really confortable for the rider and bike geometry?

    Oh and.. sorry the double post.

    Cheers

    I wouldnt be to worried about sheering off the headtube. Who cares about the warranty.

    If I break my 7point I already know that IH isnt going to do sh!t to replace it. I've come to realize that and now accept it. (It makes beating on it alot easier)

    Mabye s 888RC 7" version. Unless you have already done with 7" conversion for the rear, them why not. Slap on the 8" DC.

    So I should just consider the fact that IH sent me a brand new frame when i found a crack on the downtube a fluke. They actually sent me the frame before I sent them mine so I could keep riding. And they let me change the size of the frame. I received my new frame in about a week. Damn Ironhorse!

    I've had fantastic service from MJ at World Wide Cycles... the distributor for IH.

    Grant, you're blaspheming here.
    Meh.

    Anyone else think the paint on the 6.4's is extremly non-durable?

    Maybe i should buff and wax it..

    No quick release for the 6point. It uses a 12mm Thru-axle. Same axle as the 7point.

    look at photos of yellow 6point in this thread, that lever definitely didn`t looks like bolt-on 12mm axle.
