    What seatpost is that,and what size rear tire are you running?
    It looks pretty large. I'd love to run a larger tire in the rear, but I've had clearance issues with the tire/front derailleur in the past.

    The seatpost is a Crankbrothers Joplin 3, and the tires are Continental Rubber Queens 2.2.

    These tires are pretty large, but I've had no problems mounting the front derailleur. There isn't much room to spare though, bigger tires will rub against the front derailleur!

    If you run a double and bash and use an SLX front mech http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=27692 (the double specific one) you can run a much wider tyre with NO clearance problems

    Thanks.. Those tires do look large for a 2.2!!!
    I thought they were at least 2.4 LOL
    I'm running a 2.3 WTB Weirwolf without a problem but it's a small 2.3...

    @ Stu have you personally tried the SLX FD? I've been eyeing that for a while but haven't heard from anyone running one on the Fury yet.
    If it works I'll get one

    Yes I have the SLX on my Fury, cage is shorter than the triple version and gives lots more clearance. Will take a pic when I have chance

    is that Coil Shock 7.5 x 2.0 or is a bit longer?? Cuz Mountain Cycle Specs the Fury for a 7.5 x 2.0. I didn't think you could find coil shocks that small.

    It's not a dhx, it's a van r.

    The van r is a very basic shock with a fixed pro pedal and rebound adjust.
    It's very straight forward. The pro-pedal is very light, so, it's not really felt so much.
    Best way to describe it is plush. Personally i never got on with the Roco. Air just seemed to finicky for me.

    As for any criticism of a coil on the Fury, that puzzles me somewhat. MC shipped coils on quite a few of it's bikes once over.

    Still have a Moho SLIX, San Andreas, Moho Road, the only full titanium San Andreas in the world, the original 1st San Andreas that was shown in MBA at the 1991 Interbike show in Anaheim, one of the first 100 production San Andreas frames in white and a 2006 ShockWave in a box for my son once he get's a bit older...

    Always fun to hear from you Mr, "R".
    My 06 San An is Hanging on the wall with a broken swingarm, but it died a good death. It put in some hard miles, about 7K in four years here at Bootleg Canyon, so I will never complain.
    I do lament it's death though. I had always hoped to retire it before it broke and hang it proudly on my garage wall. Mine was one of the very last ones built to your original design.

    I was wondering if you were, The Robert. Welcome home! Is that 1st SA the one you are holding in my avitar? A Ti SA!! I'm in Simi Valley, I gotta see that some day. Here is my '96 SA. I just put some new parts on it and it's still going strong and I'll never part with it. I was told, it was the first one sold with the newer seat tower. The X-fusion air shock works really good with the 3:1 rear end of the SA.

    Oh, that's sad! I'm looking for a clean frame with a rear disc tab. Here is the one I have, It's set up as a 1x9 now. See those Cook Brothers cranks? I bought them at one of the MC garage sales in San Luis Obispo, for $15.

    The first fork is an Marzocchi Bomber, the second is a Stratos S8 (8" USD fork) very plush without botteming all the time, had a silver one to on my Shockwave in 2001

    That is the nicest SA on the planet! What color is the frame? It kinda looks white, but not really. I would love to have one of those forks. Do you like how it works?

    The frame is a really light silver pearl, it slightly shimmers in the sun. As for the forks it took me years to find them. Used to have a set in alu too but sold them to get these.

    Some times I think they're not working because they're so smooth and they don't dive or bob. The whole package inspires confidence. Last week I thought I'd try cycling up stairs on it.

    It worked...

    You should be proud of your self for building that bike. It's a work of art. Let me know if you ever come across another set of those forks that needs a home.

    It was a labour of love for sure. Only problem is that I never want to get any dirt on it.

    You should get of the french velo forum for those forks. They turn up more often in france but like I said these took me years to find. You could also do searches on all the ebays worldwide and save the searches. Thats what I did in the end. They weren't cheap but then nice thing never are...

    My MC CXS

    Havent seen many/any pics of a CXS on here. So here is a pic of mine... I am thinking of swapping the DUC32s for a set of SC32s. The DUCs are light but not as nice a ride as the elastomer Hanebrinks that were on the bike when it was first built. You live and learn...

    Had it built in 2000. Groupset is mainly XTR M950. Except for XT rear V-brakes and the Maverick hub up front. Easton carbon monkey bar, Thompson post finish it off. Bit of a classic now I guess. I get out on it mainly for cross country / single track around the Cotswolds/Malvern Hills.

    Early San Andreas?

    My other MC is a bit of a basket case... I got it in a weak moment off ebay for just under £100 I fancied a 'winter project'... Now reality is setting in...

    The frame/subframe look in good condition except for the normal imprint of a dual crown fork on one side of the main frame.

    It came with a Risse Genesis shock about 5.5" / 140mm long, this looks worn although is working as far as I can tell.

    Chassis number is 11540 etched by hand.

    Anyone out there who can give me some advice on standard setup/spec? I have lots of questions and no doubt I'll have many more as time goes on...

    e.g. Would a slightly longer shock be possible as there is a lot of clearance to the front mech post?
    I believe early San Ans were optimally set up for 100mm forks, so does that rule out my potentially spare DUC32s..., etc, etc...

    Thanks in anticip... ... ... ...

    I have a set of Hanebrink XC forks, worst purchase I ever made. Let me know if you have a need for them. I think I also have an extra set of internals for them.

    Back in the day.

    Got this bike back in 94 after seeing them at Mont St-Anne. It was the best looking bike, so far ahead of anything else out there. The Pro-Stop brakes looked cool, but really sucked though, I use to call them Pro-Slows The bike went through different variations.

    The secret to getting Pro-Stops to work right was using levers that pulled enough cable. The red one is how I had my '96 originally set up. Now it looks like:

    Just put it together with what spare parts I had laying around the garage. It also needs a new rear shock. Will a Fox RP23 fit this bike?

    ^ Very nice! That's a good version to have. An X-Fusion air shock would work really nice, it will work better then a fox shock, because of the high ratio design.

    You wouldn't know the size? I'm away from home for a couple of months. I'd like to check online if I can find a cheap one.

    It depends on how much travel you want. I would recommend staying with short travel. That would be the 6.5" lower shock eye to upper shock eye, with a 1.5" shock stroke. That will give you 4.5" of travel and will work well with a 130mm fork. That's what I'm running on post # 365. You can go 7" eye to eye with a 2" stroke for 6" of travel. But the bottom bracket gets to high and it just doesn't work well. Run the shock plates up as high as you can, to keep the bottom bracket low. But make sure to take the spring or air out of your shock, carefully cycle it through to make sure the swing arm won't hit the main frame or seat tower, before the shock comes to the end of it's travel. When I had that frame, I had 1mm of clearance between the swingarm cross brace and the frame and that's all I needed.

    Your best bet would be to call X-fusion. They may have some closeout shocks at a good price. I paid like $120 for their best air shock on close out. And it comes with bushings, you just have to tell them what size.

    Also, if your 5' 10" or taller and if that's a medium seat tower, you might be more comfy with a setback seat post. The next change I am going to make is a Thomson set back post. I put a setback post on from my carbon bike, to try it out and I really liked it.

    ^ Yeah, it's all give and take. For me, it's really uncomfortable if the TT length is to short, And I don't like the way long stems feel.

    Well here is my current MC line up......the first its my 2010 Rumble. Its currently not built but is getting a all new drive train and wheel set. I love the longer fork on it, such a fun bike to ride.


    The next is my Fury that i got real cheap from a friend. Love this bike too just wish it had a little bit more travel in the back end....and no i don't ride the bike with the seat post up that far.


    This is my girlfriends DH rig. Its a Sin that i have had for quite some time and thought it needed to be taken back to the trails. Its super light and she loves it. Ya i know they say not to use this bike as a DH rig but she only weighs 110lbs so i don't think she gonna break the frame.


    And the last is the battery's. The orange one is mine and the white one (yes the only white one MC ever made) is my roommates. I use mine for just the jump trail at Highland Mountain bike park and my roommate uses his for all around riding. Its great for the DH and XC.


    The last on is the MC's on my car headed to Highland to ride for the day. The best thing about owning a MC is no one else has one. So MC get your **** together and make another great couple of bike like i have here.

    Busted out the San Andreas yesterday - what a great riding bike!

    Been riding lots of high end stuff over the years. Dusted off the San Andreas yesterday, pumped up the tires and shocks, what a ride, still the best bike I have ever ridden.

    Hello. Long time lurker, first time poster. Embarrassingly enough, I bought the DHS frame new from greenfishsports.com back in 2006. Today, it was finally brought to life. It has replaced my beat to hell 1996 Cannondale Super V Carbon 900.

    Right on! That's a good version to have. That version doesnt seem to have the upper shock mount block peel problem of the previous version.

    Do you happen to know what the last year was they made these? The user manual says 2004 on the cover. I'm also curious as to where it was made.

    I'm pretty sure 2004. They made the DNA in '05 and '06. Think that one was made in Portland, by Kinesis, who owned MC at the time.

    Also, I would run the upper shock plates as high as you can on the frame. It will lower the bottom bracket a little and slacken the head tube a little. Both will be good things and make the bike ride better. Although the bottom bracket will still be high, thats just the way this bike is. Take the spring off the shock and make sure the shock will bottom out before the swingarm hits the seat tower, before you move the plates up.

    MC Shawn - I think I missed the discussion on the peel problem? What can you tell me about it? I have attached a photo I scavenged years ago from a MTBR thread just to keep in my archives. Was this a chronic probelm?

    Yeah that's it. I didn't think that version had that problem. But to peel the block off and break the seat tower like that, something is up with that one. Like a 300 pound guy was sitting on it and hit a big bump. If you ride it like you're supposed to, that's not going to happen.

    I think I tried that when I first got the frame. I couldn't put the plates in the top set of holes because the blue dial would hit the seat tower. That's what I'm remembering at least. I'll give it another shot because it would be nice if the frame was a bit lower.

    So the later sealed bearing versions from Kenesis should be OK, right? I was thinking the same thing about the 300lb'er, I bet the one in this photo was a result of much more than "normal' riding.

    Honestly, it it were me, I would put on a shorter 6.5" x 1.5" stroke shock on it. They just work much better with a shorter shock and travel.

    That's the best setup for the SA. As long as the swingarm doesn't hit the seat tower at full bottom out.

    Is that a small or medium seat tower?
