    Mmmmmmm gotta love needle bearings!
    This was a tremendous move forward on their part I think

    Gotta love those versus bikes...Versus was one of the top three manufacturers on my list of new rigs.

    Ooohhh and grease ports on the needle bearings...Damn I wish nicolai would do this.
    Such a great idea!!

    That white Blitz II is a vision of pure eye candy! Ive been considering one of those myself. I really want to try a Sinister Passion.

    Needle bearings are what swayed me buy a Nicolai. When Versus decided to make the big move to a bearing designed to handle the loads applied (needles) was sweet. I agree the zerks are kinda like the iceing, using moto tecnology.

    I've got a blitz I and I'm thinking about upgrading the rear shock from the Manipoo Swinger 4 Way that it came with but I'm not sure what the shock stroke is. Is it 2.0 or 2.25, anyone know?? I'm guessing it's 2.0

    If you get a small frame be aware that the rockers might hit the seat post collar. The first time I rode off my driveway i heard a clunk and realized the Hope QR collar hit my rocker. =(

    The fox dhx air is a 2.00 stroke and the dhx coil is a 2.25. I have a 800x2.30 spring on my dhx coil. That is what Herb told me when I bought my frame. I decided on the coil cause the air shocks have trouble with a riders over 170 lbs.

    DHX air come in the same sizes as the DHX coil, so 2.25" stroke is available in the 7.875" shock

    The rockers are machined out on the inside also. Versus spent allot of time & research looking for strength, function & a good look. Easier said then done

    I have a couple of questions for the versus guys... I went to great lengths (try 12,000 miles) to purchase my blitz1 frame in california. Right now the frame/bike is at home in malaysia. My question is, is my frame still under warranty? Since it's a "discounted" blitz 1, does it still have the 2 year warranty? Plus I'm pretty sure I've lost the reciept after all that country hopping (I was on a round the world trip and USA was my 2nd stop), am I eligible for warranty repair, cover or whatever (sorry my english isnt that good)? Not that I've manage to break my frame, but just in case you know...

    Anyway, thanks for an awesome frame at a great price and I love my versus to bits.

    Check with your importer, http://www.versuscycles.com/dealers.html they are your best bet. Versus will honor there warranty but a case like your would be tough. The manufacture warranties a product but when out of country it falls on the importer to be responsible to there customers.

    Well in that case, knowing m'sian importers I can safely say I'm fcuked. There's no such thing as warranty cover here esp in mountain biking. Broke my crank on my HT, was asked to buy a new one, broke the fork? buy a new one, broke the spokes (even though it's a dt swiss) was asked to buy a new one, broke the BB? buy a new one, broke your frame? unless you bought it from them... buy a new one!!!

    Damn... and Versus frames are pretty expensive here. Cant afford to broke mine.... yet.

    Thanks for the compliments. I personally have not come across a bike that has as much machining done to it. You really need to see one in person to realize just about every part on the suspension has been machined from both sides. On the downside it makes it tough to clean everywhere.

    The ride has been great so far. The bike tracks wonderfully through rocks and ruts. Although, this past weekend I noticed some play in the main pivot. I emailed Herb and they are sending me a washer kit to get rid of the play. I'm still not sure what caused the slop, cause I'd got at least 100 miles on it and never noticed it before.

    Well, i will be ordering a blitz 2 in the near future, and i have a couple of questions(im a newb).

    1. On some forks, there is a black bar on the bottom, is that where the hub slides on?
    2. How do cassettes go onto the rim?
    3. How do bottom-brackets stay in place, do you set them in place and put the cranks on?
    And finally, numba four- What is the difference between threaded and threadless headseats?

    Thanks a bunch,
    -jimmy

    Threaded is obsoleet, the top nut threads on the stem.
    Threadless is a compression fit.

    Yup, that "bar" at the bottom is a 20mm axle. You will need a wheel that has a 20mm hub in order to use that fork/axle.

    not too good. I have to wait next year (around this time) to buy a reign x1, frame or bike, because apparently they are hard to get a-hold of, says my shop. I kind of want a blitz 2, but im steering away from it because i would have to outfit it with lower-grade parts, meaning more weight, so that would put it past 40 lbs, which makes me cringe. Also, my local dealer specializes in giants, and they carry alot of parts. Finally, if i buy a an x1 from them, they will give me free tune-ups for life!!

    Meh, finally manage to snap a pic of my bike.... unfortunately it's not the best pic. I'm a crappy photographer. Will try to get a better pic later.

    The bike have been crashed (heavily) at least 4 times, semi-road tyres and muddy downhill just dont mix. Hence I was forced to sub the fragile components on my bike with the cheap ones (xtr to xtr replacement only to be destroyed the following week really burn holes in my pocket). And I need to have low rolling resistance tyres since i commute to work daily on this bike. I'm just too cheap to buy new wheelset for the time being

    UST are way way overrated. Nothing beats swearing off a product like pushing you bike for 5 clicks through a jungle caused by dented $500 rims

    Oh and almost everybody like the black theme of my bike. They said "dude, thats what darth vader would ride if he ever had to pedal!"
