    Thanks for the comments guys!

    With my build I was trying to have a modern(ish) take on the original Reissinger look?

    My original Rac's unfortunately got stolen, this second set came from Marzocchi USA. They did have a few sets, but this was a couple of years ago, it may be worth mailing them if you are interested?

    I think the b/b issue is only partly true, yes it has a high b/b but only if you want to run a 190mm shock. Asking for 6" of travel out of a single pivot frame that was designed when 2" was the norm is a bit of an ask? In reality I think this frame is better suited to 4 1/2" travel as it works much better with a 165mm shock.
    The b/b on mine is only 13" & if anything I would make it a little higher. My set up is using the 165mm shock in the top shock mounting hole (normally only used with the DHS shock configuration). The manual tells you not to do this, however I spoke at length to Eric Roesinger at Mountain Cycle about frame set up and he said it is fine to do this with no warranty issues.

    Just got my Fury and liking it a lot!

    Bought my fury as a demo/showroom frame and loving the ride and geometry!

    I'm just waiting for me new shock '04 Vanilla R to upgrade from an X-Fusion Vector Pro shock.... 5 inches doesn't seem to be enough for me hehe..... The Vanilla R will up the travel to about 5.5inches.... I'm so excited!

    Cheers!

    San An needs a strip and grease, a few creaks from somewhere and need to put the remotes on for the Magura Laurin FCR's. Might pop some new stickers on it as well, photos to follow.

    changed a bit of the set up to see if I could get a modern build.

    Fork, 44 ATA micro QR15 set a 140mm, rear shock mount moved to second from the top gives a 14" bb height to the centre of the bb axle and roughly a 67.5 degree head angle.

    Hope brakes and wheels also fitted

    Rode it last night and it handled extremely well.

    Did you plumb line the head angle or is that a rough guess?

    Nice builds on the Furys and San An.
    I was wondering what you Fury owners are using for the rear mud guards.
    I noticed that one at least has a big S on it.

    I'd guess the head angle on the San An is close to what he says.
    Mine with the 190 X 51mm shock and a 2.4 Advantage up front with a 2.35 Highroller out back, is about 68.5 deg. With the shorter shock and the upper mounting holes selected, it should be close to what Dan says.
    BTW, I used a angle square to check mine.

    We just had this one taken at the Sea Otter in Monterey. I love my MC baby. The Pixie bike is a 2005 frame with one ring up front, 888 forks and a newly rebuilt Manitou Swinger coil over shock (thanks to Hayes at the Otter, who rebuilt it for me for free!). She has a little jewelry - twenty six levers, pretty red seatpost clamp by Hope, and white pearly platform pedals.

    Proper build later today - I really must go to bed! The size/strength of the swingarm tubes really is quite shocking in the flesh!


    Look, I even tilted my saddle back like a pro dirt jumper ;-)

    not mega technical, a spirit level with an adjustable angle finder. I have a mate with the angle finder application on his iphone, I'll get him to double check.

    Later today because it was 2am! Was at my lbs today and we got most of it done except for cranks - swingarm clearance issues with Saint 09's. Posted another photo in my "Battery" thread, I'll keep that one running until the build is done then do finished photos in here rather than double posting. It feels great up and down the drive (stuck in top gear, no cables yet!) need to sort stem out as well.

    The one I purchased a long time ago was bare Al. But that's ok because you can give it a quick freshen up with Mothers Al polish.

    if you mean your SS bike, then mine is the same finish.

    i would have thought it would oxidate a lot more if it was bare aluminium really.

    i'm planning on taking mine apart and re-polishing it, but need to get the facts straight first!

    thanks.

    Nice... It looks great!!!

    I really like the placement of the down tube decal..I could be wrong, but I never noticed anyone else with it like that. It looks sweet
