    Really does. Makes me want to throw the DHX Air into the fires of hell. Feels like poop.

    I plan on going coil a dhx or somthing...
    Won't lowering the e2e on the shock by a .25 inch and raising the head tube by about .5 of an inch in the end raise the BB slightly and give me a little under a degree of slack?
    Anyone know what those numbers might be?

    Smaller e2e will give you a lower bb, longer wheelbase, slacker ht angle. Which I think the 6point benefits greatly from.

    Im selling my Roco tomorrow. Either planning on picking up a DHX air, DHX coil, or Float.
    Not sure which one.

    The float is considerably less $$$ but I am afraid that I will destroy it in short order.

    Actually, air shocks on the 6 Point work fine. DW had said this in a different post and some of the 6 point guys like me had figured this out last year- you need to use a shock with the "smallest possible air cannister/sleeve". DHX-Air shocks generally use a 'large air sleeve' so they tend to blow right through the travel with DW-Link suspension. With the smaller Float air sleeve the spring curve is much quicker and gives you significantly more mid stroke support and bottom out. There is a cheap fix for the DHX air, you can either call FOX Shox up and purchase a small Float air sleeve and replace your old one with OR you can fill in your air sleeve with plastic to reduce the amount of air that can flow into it. It's a really easy fix and takes about 15 minutes.
    There is a post on this forum on how to do it if you do a search. I did it to mine and it works like night and day. You get nice mid stroke support but still have great small bump absorption. I think a regular float RP3 air shock with a small air sleeve would work really well. The reservoir on the DHX-air is worthless on these bikes.

    That is exactly why I picked up a Float.
    The plan is to get it PUSH'ed as well.

    yet another shock...

    <a href="http://s5.photobucket.com/albums/y158/132132/?action=view&current=100_2223.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y158/132132/100_2223.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    Which will be sent off to PUSH eventually.
    I could:
    Get a shot gun, send the shock to PUSH, or lift the truck...

    The bottom bracket is frighteningly low. EkK!

    hey, what does the new shock do, does it have the same travel as with the DHX-air just a shorter i2i? I'm really interested if I could lower and slack my 6point a little.

    sick bike, btw!

    Ya, you get the same travel as your DHX just a 8.5 i2i instead of the 8.75 i2i.
    It takes the BB to about 13.2 inches and Head tube angle to 66ish. Much better in my opinion!

    All the guys I ride with huff it out and go up Crack. Going to Ptown and not riding crack is like watching a pizza rise in the oven, smelling the goodness and then not eating it.

    We'll do crack once or twice before heading over to Mile.

    and no, Poh's 14 year old dashing good looks dont count.

    OH GAWD! I was afraid of that! I couldn't quite tell though from the photo. I thought they were a faded red or something. That's even worse! You should get a pink polo with a popped collar to wear when you're riding. They'll go well together.

    In any case, you ride harder than I do, so I can't give you too much sh*t...

    Hahahaha, I am picking up some Yellow Ourys this week. The Pink ones are so comfy though...
    How does an Orange/ Grey jersey with Red goggles work? I think they are just as fly as a Pink Polo!!! (Pic from a night ride last week)

    Damn dude, those goggles look huge on you. I think they might be a little big. You look like a little kid.

    Sent to Wotan out for warranty Gotta keep riding. Im confident that the 6point can take it The 888RC reminds me why I rode one for so long. Pondering the idea of picking up a 66RC for the 6point and ditching the Wotan.

    Doesnt please me either.

    I talked to the whole USA Magura squad. They have never heard of the problems that my fork had. (Which included: excessive bushing play, fork would sink down in its travel mid run, and it was still puking oil after 30+ hours of riding)

    Took it back no questions asked, which was pretty cool. But I am a tad disappointed to say the least.
    Customer service is top notch though!

    Shitty.
    I only have it on there until I can get my fork situation sorted out. The Wotan has to go BACK to Magura USA. They didnt fix the problem..... Im livid at this point.

    If your looking for more travel pick up a Solo Air Totem, 66SL, 66RC2 Light. Thats my plan.

    Picked up a 8.75x2.75 05 Van RC. It feels unlike any shock I have ever tried. (The only one that is comparable would be a Romic)
    I had a 250lb Ti on hand, pair those two together and oh boy...

    As well as a new 09 Gamut ISCG 05 P20 (waiting for BB spacer to mount the guide)

    The Wotan is leaving once again. Totem time!

    New Holzfeller cranks are on the way as well.

    Im broke.

    We did 3 runs down that b!tch'n trail yesterday. Of course the one run I didnt hit the drop was the one run when a buddy took pictures...

    And of course that was the run where the Wotan died.

    I bought the bike off the guy that was also selling Sam's SSO on the german mtb-news.de, woh told me the fork and shock are monster team tuned. In any case, the shock has no significant stiction and responds really well to small bumps, and the fork is killer: soft yet progressive, and it really responds to compression changes -- unlike the lyrik solo air I rode before.

    My buddy raced MY bike last weekend...
    I heckled with the megaphone and had adult beverages.

    I did time myself the day before, would have placed top 10 in expert.

    A few pics:

    Soo I already have a Turner 5 spot and was looking at a slightly heavier duty rig for Downieville/Northstar. would the $2100 rscycle built rig be Northstar worthy or do i need to look at a bigger bike?

    Hey Motor Monkey,

    How do you like the Float shock with the lower BB and slacker HA?

    Do you find the BB way too low? I've been thinking about getting one as they can be had for cheap.

    BB isnt to low at all. I am actually running a 5th Element 8.5x2.5 right now with a Ti coil.

    The geometry with the shorter shock is spot on. Much better than with the 8.75 shock.

    The Float works for AM/XC riding, but it bottoms our harshly on big jumps/drops/ etc. It is not a big mountain shock.

    Motor Monkey, whats up with the 5th element, just trying it out? I remember how those shocks felt like poo pee with the DW link.

    Did you know those shocks can be DIY custom shimmed (no SPV). I've been on the hunt for a dirt cheap Swinger shock I can do this mod to for my 6 point. I think a custom tuned 8.5" coil shock would be sick on this bike. Check it: http://www.mtbshock.com/swinger_5th_shim_mod.htm

    Did you know those shocks can be DIY custom shimmed (no SPV). I've been on the hunt for a dirt cheap Swinger shock I can do this mod to for my 6 point. I think a custom tuned 8.5" coil shock would be sick on this bike. Check it: http://www.mtbshock.com/swinger_5th_shim_mod.htm
    Ya, just threw it on there for the time being. And yes, it does feel like poo pee with a dash of woodieness. Once you get into the travel it feels just as good as the Roco on my 7point did. Its the first 1/3 of stroke that feels like wood.

    It is actually going on a single pivitish type bike so we will see how it preforms on there. Thanks for the link! I might end up doing that to the shock if it doesnt preform up to expectations.

    Hi!

    Hopefully you guys can help out...I have a new 6point frame coming and I have some stupid questions...

    1.5 or 1.125" head tube?
    if 1.5" can i use a reducer to run a fork with a 1.125" steerer? - Which one? you should know the frame is coming with headset cups already pressed in

    next... regarding the rear shock
    its coming with the dhx5.0 and i've read the comments about the easy fix so it works well. But how does an RP23 work? If performance is the same i would rather go with the lighter and less complicated shock.

    Thanks in advance!
