    Let us know how the Hope wheels pan out. I'm a huge Hope fan and have been wondering about their new hoops for a while...

    My 3 Rigs

    I've posted this before but what the heck!

    Shockwave 9.5





    Sin





    San Andreas DNA





    3 rigs





    The DNA now has Dual Duty rear wheels, x9 shifter / der and both the Sin & DNA have cheesy zoke fenders. The Shockwave will soon have a CCDB as the Romic is currently being serviced and will be set as my back up shock,

    I now have some miles on them, a few rides, and work flawlessly (as expected )
    The reduced weight is staggering, they are about 2,75 Lbs !! lighter than the wheels it replaced.
    They are very nice to see, and strong enough for XC and AM.

    The rearhub does make noise, but that is just music to my ears
    If you hate noise from you're rearhub, these are not for you.....

    Nice Rides Shawn..
    I think that's the first pic I've seen of your Moho. It looks awesome!!!

    How do you like the Cross Rides?
    I've had a set for over a year now and I'm very impressed with them.
    Especially for the price.

    I think they are great for the money. Not the lightest around, but they work good.

    The Moho is going to become a 9 speed soon. I have a Revelation U-Turn air on the way for the new SA, the Minute 3 is going on the Classic and the Psylo is going back on the Rumble SS for my Girl friend's son.

    I bought those at a Mountain Cycle garage sale for $20, before they moved from San Luis Obispo. I also have a red set that were part of the original Classic build.

    Fury with Sin relaxed geometry cleat.
    I'm borrowing the Swinger 4 way coil shock until my 3 Way air gets back from a rebuild.

    Yeah It's slack but it feels pretty good for aggressive riding

    What is the travel with the relaxed cleat?

    One thing I thought of, but never have tried, is to remove spring, then lay the bike down on a fixed piece of paper, then mark on paper fully extended then fully compressed and measure difference maybe at axle position. Or even trace the axle path as it moves if possible.

    Ok ummm..
    This is not very accurate because I had to do it by myself with the bike in a work stand. it was a pain with the damping. But here goes...
    It came to 85mm Doh!!!! that includes the 15mm bottomout bumper.
    I want to wait until someone else is around and do it again so I can also trace the axle path.

    It's strange because it feels like more travel than that...

    I was going to sell this frame, because I just didn't use it, but my GF's son wants to ride it, so last night I put it back together. It weighs 28.5 pounds. It will be his first Mtn bike and I think he'll have fun with it.

    Sweet!!!! At 36.5 lbs you must have built it up to take a beating...
    How do you like the Domain now that you have had a few rides on it?
    I really like mine..

    Did you head out early to beat the heat and humidity..
    Wish I did lol..

    No Beatings for this frame The frame has to last the summer
    Between the 823's, Domain & Flats, it starts to add up quick! I really like the Domain so far. I have no complaints...
    I rolled out from my house for a local ride @ 6:20am today. 10.5 miles later, the temp was up 11 deg. from the start. This afternoon must have been tough

    Ha Ha Well nice build!!! You don't need to worry about the parts breaking..
    That's why my bikes are both tanks...
    Yeah the afternoon was bad. One of these days I'll learn to ride early.

    The only difference between my XC bike build and DH build is the Cranks & Stem. Makes it easy this way if I need spare parts for one. As much as I would like to build a lightweight XC bike, I hate walking out of the woods even more

    I hear that.. Light parts around here just don't last..
    My original intension was to set the Fury up as a light trail bike and the Bullit as a All Mountain-freeride bike.
    "Well" after some trial and error my Fury weighs 33.5 lbs and my Bullit weighs 34.5..
    I'd rather have a reliable bike than a light bike.
    Now who want's to buy a DHX Air..

    Nice bike...I really like the silver ones...
    How do you like the seat post? I like mine. It really helps for aggressive riding on bikes without a full seat tube.
    Here's a tip if you ever have a problem with it slipping like I did.
    You can replace the upper clamp with a size 32.0 Salsa or other quality QR clamp.
    Mine hasn't moved since..

    Thanks - first San An I saw was a silver (back in 95) and always liked the look - got my silver zaskar in 96 and it was 2003 before I went full suss with the Mountain Cycle. I was a little surprised that there don't seem to be colour options with the Classic reissues - the polished ones look amazing, and if I remember right they took a polished one with the new stickers to last year's Interbike.

    Thanks for the seatpost tip - I don't adjust the seat that much, but I've got so many qr clamps that I'll give it a go.

    Same here..I saw one on the trail in the 90's. I've wanted one ever since..

    Was your Zaskar the ball burnished(polished) version? Those were awesome too.. ..

    Yup - ball burnished, pics in the "post your GT" thread on the GT forum. What other makes do Mountain Cycle owners ride? (although I like the "collect the set" idea that a lot of MC riders have, especially since the Rumble is such a nice hardtail).

    The GT looks nice..Now go polish it.. j/k I just did a swingarm what a pain....

    I own other brands but they are not worthy of posting here...

    I'm waiting for the new MC's to come out so I can replace them..

    For other makes I have a 05 SC Bullit I got really cheap last year ($275 frame) So I couldn't resist.I also have a Gary Fisher hardtail I bought new in 2001.
    If you want to see pics of them they are in my profile.

    I'm waiting for the new MC's to come out so I can replace the other brands..
    Right now the other brand in my stable aside from MC is a Marin Quake. It replaced my defunked Sin and would serve as my FR bike until MC comes out with a worthy replacement that has a stronger /more reliable/bomb proof frame and good geometry.

    Here is a pic of my Sin replacement:

    Nice ride!

    I hope mine turns out as nice... I need to get the rest of the parts, and hopefully I can locate some MC stickers for it.. or get the SIN logo re-produced for the swingarm.

    Thanks, yes I 'borrowed' your idea for the mudflap - great idea!
    Seatpost - I was trying out a different seating position as i'm 6ft, gone back to a straight post now.

    Dude have you been hitting the 4th of July beer supply a little early?!

    Sholmes, nice finish on the frame, white and black are very "in" colors at the moment.
    Good luck with the rest of your build. Post it up when your done!

    New and improved 2009 Rumble

    Just came off the delivery truck yesterday. Brushed aluminum would not have been my first choice but when I saw it in front of me, it looked incredible. This is the medium(long) version of the two sizes. Time to get it dirty

    some "useful" numbers

    Same angle as my old '03, but I can't confirm(70 deg.). Headtube length is the still the same at 5.4", Seattube diameter is the same at 34.9mm but now accepts a 27.2 seatpost instead of the old 30.9. Chainstay might be shorter b/c it seems like there is less clearance between the tire and the seattube. Effective TT length may be a tad longer than the '04 medium but i'm not sure of the number...
