    How does the glory feel with the single crown, is it more flickable tha the stock glory? (Assuming you bought it as a whole instead of a frame)

    Loving the '10 DH damper + enduro seals. I think I'm going to get the 170 assembly since the extra soft u-turn spring is a little too soft and I never even use the u-turn.

    Yeah. I put some in the front where the cables rub when I was in Mammoth. It actually works really well and lasted the entire week. I now have some real clear cable rub protectors on.

    that is sick. replacement for the xam? is that a really small frame or is that seat huge?
  • 11-01-2010
    blue109
    thx. i still love the xam. this thing will be overkill for some of the tucson trails so both bikes will get love. they only come in short and long. this is the short. comme and most of the research i did say its right for my 5'10" and its pretty close in dimensions to my 17" AM bike. that seat does look huge though. id also like to note that it fxkin sucks trying to mount tires on these wheels. im screwed if i get a sidewall tear on the trail.

    I actually built this as a framset. The only reason I have the 180mm is cause I bought it thinking I was originally going to get the Faith frame. I broke down and just bought the 40, so now I have a 180mm for sale.

    I know this is SPAM, but is anyone looking for a 2010 RS Lyrik 2 step Air? It is like new and used for 4 months. Sterr: is tapered 1.5" to 1 1/8" and is cut to 7.5 inchs. Yes that is plenty of lenght to work on most frames out there. Only getting rid of it for my 2011 fork.

    PM me if you want to make a deal.

    My FR single crown.
    So, the bike in the first picture was ripped off about a month ago. The bike in the second picture I just built up last night. Homeowner's Insurance covered the theft. I have the new 66 RC3 EVO Ti as my true FR fork. :thumbsup:

    p.s. Don't worry Travis, the Woodie wasn't on it when it was stolen, just an RC4 :D

    If it helps any, I ran a 8mm spacer under my 35mm Straitline stem when I had my Banshee Wildcard. 1.5" Headtube with a Hope Step Down headset.

    In this pic, I had a 10mm spacer.

    What pad are you using? Original - organic?
    I plan to switch front Elixir CR for Code 2011, which will add just about 25g to the bike :) but significant amount of braking power, I hope :)

    [QUOTE=alex55]I got this to replace my '06 Kona Coiler. I'm a student at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology in Rapid City, SD and I got this because I thought it would suit the terrain here well. So far I love this bike. Its great for just about anything except for rock gardens but even then, its not bad. It handles everything well and is comfortable in the air. I even take it to the dirt jumps quite a bit.



    I bought a BR to replace a coiler, and have a somewhat similar setup... domain u-turn, DHX, nevegals, etc. SUCH a fun, versatile bike. A little on the heavy side, but I ride XC trails on it regularly, and it handled Diablo and Snowshoe without a problem.

    I know there are a ton of newer slopestyle-esque, shorter travel freeride bikes out there that are a lot lighter, but I'll stick with my bottlerocket, thanks.

    Now I just need pictures of her...

    Here's one of my SC beasts. I used it for the Gravity East Finals, and finished less than 3 seconds off of podium in Cat. 2 30-39. Had a blast! Built the bike for the Gravity East opener because it had a HT class, it was the only venue with a HT class in the entire series. I had to miss is it. So what the heck I decided, leave the dually in the van, and use the HT for the finals:D

    Yep. Looks like FR/DH to me. Sweet bike.
    Both those vids of the HT downhill stuff are terrific. (That riding ain't too shabby either)

    I guess I should throw in a pic of my single-crown FR/DH beauty.

    Hey, an SWD never thought I'd see one with a single. Here's my friends bike, with my 66 on it.


    Here's an F5 with the 66.


    Both rode like crap (the frame), as it wasn't setup for my weight, the swd was too soft, the f5 was too hard. Both are beautifully ugly, or ruggedly handsome :D
  • 11-15-2010

    Do you smack your pedals on the frame? I have SWD phobia, because of the very low bb height, the pedals smacked right onto the ground during a turn, and it wasn't even an off camber or a rocky trail. Pole vaulting me in the air, don't know if it's a case of too soft spring. Just curious.

    how is that durolux?
  • 11-17-2010
    cxfahrer
    The Durolux was cheap, long (185mm travel), and has a remote control for winding it down to 140mm. Thatīs why I bought it.
    It is really stiff, the Q-Loc works great, but You have to fine-tune the damping- and airchamber internals. Out of the box, it will not work, especially if You want to do some serious drops. The compression damping system has a kind of blow-off feature, the only way to fix it is to make the airchamber smaller.
    After I fixed everything that did not work, the fork is works ok to me. If I would use this bike more often, I would spend the extra cash for a TALAS 180.
