    Hey I called Spinner USA about the fork and after Christmas I'll send it back to them and they said they would tune it to my riding style and weight for free. Maybe they can make it a little better till I can get the fork I want.

    its too big bro, you need the 9" eye to eye with 2.75" stroke. spring weight would not be bad. Look at my eariler post about the $175 3 way swinger

    No they'd be much worse. Get an 05 Sherman if you want to go inexpensive and relitively good.

    eye to eye

    yes your correct what to measure eye to eye...just to let you know dont go any less than a 9" eye to eye length...and if you can- get a 2.75'' stroke ( 9 x 2.75) you'll max out the frames travel-i have seen many guys moding there frame for more-i dont suggest it because one it voids your warranty-and two if you need more than 7 inches of travel all around get something bigger.
    How's that dirt taste?

    you should have checked santacruz's shock sale:swinger 4 ways and 5th elements for 99 bucks apiece. they were 8.75 i2i, but for the price i'd make the sacrifice.

    Would that just sacrafice the full 7'' of travel length?

    if you completely bottomed out the shock your rear tire might bump the seat, and there might be a tiny un-noticeable change in geometry (lower) you'd get the full 7 inches of travel though.

    i would get thelarge and run it at 170mm, but if i were you, i'd check pinkbike every once in a while, sometimes people sell lightly used 66vf2's for around 300 bucks.

    I decided to join the fray and picked up "a poor man's Bullit" myself. I got mine from Randall Scott shipped for 548.00. I had none of the diificulties that another poster encountered; the bike was expertly packaged and I got in 2 days. I was very impressed with the quality of the bike; it doesn't look like an cheap ride at all. I also got screaming deals on a sherman breakout fork and a 5th element shock from ebay. Can't wait to get her fully built up. Sorry for the spam, but if anybody's interested a have the original shock and fork should anyone want to pick up cheap replacement parts.
    I will try and post up pix as soon as I finish the bike. If it rides anything like my old Warrior Pro I should be a very happy man.

    Hey got my new fork Marzocchi Drop off Triple dual Crown. Very fun fork shock little bit stiff at first. just need to let air out. No air needed to get suitable sag recommended for me. or maybe Im wrong.

    So I did head up and test it, its much better than my stock, really moving big jumps, rock and lots of big rocks no problem. Sweet ride today.

    Marzocchi Drop off Triple dual Crown, Rebound adjustment are internaly. takes only 6minutes or less to adjust with a tool. right now works like it should.

    Swinger 6-way or 5th element

    I am going for the $99 rear shock sale on Santa Cruz's site, and was wondering if either the Swinger 6-way or 5th Element had any advantages over eachother?

    thanks, Ian

    Ian, I think they share patents for the concept, so the should feel similar. The 6-Way has more adjusments than most humans need.

    Athough I only have experiance with the the Swingers on my Aniki (All Good), the fact that Fifth Element has quit manufacturing bicycle shocks would steer me away from
    their brand.

    The Santa Cruz deals are unbelievable.

    By the way, here is what Iron Horse had to say when I inquired about reducer for the rear Swinger shock.

    "The reducers are specific to the shock- you will need to obtain them from Manitou or the shop - Manitou part # 85-6294 8.0mm x 23mm hardware."

    Expect to pay $ 15.00 per set and they slide into the bushing nice and easy with a little grease.

    HELLP Iron Horse Aniki rear coil upgrade

    Hey everyone I just got 06 Iron Horse Aniki for $150 the other day and I was riding it and the rear coil is way to soft for me and I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a up grade with little more travel and a much stiffer spring I weight 180 but I like a stiffer spring than most people

    Ok, I think I have decided on the Manitou Sherman series for the forky upgrade, unless I can find a 06 or 07 Marzocchi for real cheap... I'mma stay away from the drop off series tho haha.

    If I go Sherman my first pick is the Breakout, just because its a single crown and I dont realy NEED a dual crown since I dont race. If not that I have a good offer on a Slider.

    Sherman Breakout Plus

    ChrisB,

    I have a Brand New 2005 Breakout Plus (SPV Evolve) 170mm travel fork that I bought for my Iron Horse Aniki and have decided not to use.

    I have used the Sherman Breakout (150mm w/SPV) on my Aniki for two years and have been very happy with it. They can take alot of abuse but you do need to get the proper
    spring for your weight.

    If you are interested in the fork, I would sell it for $ 250.00 US plus shipping.
    It is currently mounted on my frame but has never seen any dirt.

    Well, the headtube allows up to a 1.5 fork. HOWEVER, thanks to dantes sugjestion of putting the Spinner fork on the Aniki (man I am going to get you for that Travis!! lol), it has a 1.5 to 1 1/8 reducer headset.

    stock hub

    MY front hub held up pretty well untill about a month ago when it got slammed into some bad stuff. Since then it has been loose and rattles around when hit (when not in contact w/ gorund). THis event happened after about 5 months of riding (im on my 6th month on this bike). The rear hub hasn't gotten any worse than it was before.
