    My steelhead, for now. I decided to take a chance and get the smaller size. My mistake, fits like a BMX bike on me
    I'll probably replace it with another Steelhead but in the meantime anyone looking for a small Steelhead frame?

    New question here. derailleur hanger for '04 Azonic Saber

    I just noticed something recently, and wanted to see what you guys think...


    Check out this derailleur hanger for '07 Transition frames...
    https://www.transitionbikes.com/Stor...82456508&P=608

    Doesn't it look just like the one for '04 Azonic Saber??? (I still have to look at mine more closely at home, but see pic below for now.) It'd be really cool if these ones from Transition actually work on Saber (& skip dealing with Azonic). And it's a reasonable $12/each to boot.

    So far I've bought 5 derailleur hangers directly from Azonic for my '04 Saber. The last time I ordered in '05, it was whoppin' $21/each plus a rather-hefty $10~$15(?) "shipping & handling" fee, if they even still carry them nowadays. (I'd also had one case of a super-slow delivery and another of a totally-lost order thru Azonic.)

    What do you guys think? (Or anyone already tried this?)

    Only one way to find out, of course. I'm down to the last spare, so I'll try it next time (& report back, if/when I do).

    Cheers,
    - PiroChu

    Wow, those look incredibly similar!

    EDIT: you fixed your pics

    You should email Transition and see if they'll take a picture of the back of the hanger, here's the back of my '04 Saber hanger:

    Hi tgreathead,

    Glad to hear that it's not just my blurry eyes dreaming it up, cool...

    Hey, great idea & thanks for your pic! I'll do just that right now, and report back when I hear back from 'em.

    Cheers,

    NICE!!

    Good to know, I may order one just to test it out but at more than half off Azonic's price it can't be beat

    Call Azonic and ask about getting the 04 rear triangle, the 03's had problems with not being strong enough.

    Post some pics when its built, I love sabers

    Any thoughts on running either the RS Pearl 3.1 or the Marz Roco Air on an '04 Saber? I use it for trail or all-mountain riding. Never really do the freeride thing.

    I've got the cash for an upgrade, and I think it's about time.

    I've been thinking the same thing for mine. However the Roco Air doesn't have a pedaling platform like the DHX-Air (ProPedal) which means you'd bob up and down as much as a non-platform coil shock. The Pearl is supposed to be pretty nice. Let us know what you do either way, once I get a bigger frame I'll be lightening up the Saber for XC/AM use.

    Had my first on-trail passing in a long time with another Saber today at Sullivan Canyon.
    That is all.

    Bummer, but that is exactly why regular cleaning is so important - so you find issues like that BEFORE a major failure. Imaging doing a drop and the rest of it failed.

    W a little luck Azonic will sort you out. If not, there are a BUNCH of really cool new frames to buy now

    Do tell on how Azonic Treats you please. I just returned from the Mt. Washington Bike Park on Vancouver Island where I rode my '04-'05 Saber. No problems to date but I will give the bike the once over just in case. You probably know this but the Saber's have been discontinued...they do have the new B52 model, a 7" bike from Azonic, maybe they can help you with a crash replacement discount...never hurts to ask. Glad you found the damage before your next ride. Best of luck.

    Called Azonic on Monday, and found out their warranty is only 1yr, and they don't have any Saber pieces left in stock anymore. So, I was alternatively offered the Revenge 5-inch "XC"(?) frame (not B-52 7-inch "DH/FR" frame) at a disappointingly-not-so-"crash-replacement"-like 'discount' price, and no option of "Samurai" or "Xtension" options, either.

    I ended up (back-)ordering a Transition BottleRocket, instead. (Sorry, guys, I'm going to be disqualified from this forum.)

    Cheers,
