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


    Added the Woodie and the 66 to make it all that more AWESOME!

    Had to give the 2011 Fox 36RC2 180 mm kashima coated bad boy fork a try.... 1st impressions aside of needing to put the heavy spring in is WOW..... for a non custom tuned fork im completely floored at its performance........ this is not the fox forks i had in the past...... GOOD JOB FOX!!!! It will be off to avalanche in a couple weeks once I really get a chance to get a feel for it and can speak for its performance... as of right now its probably the badest fork (single crown) out of the box.....

    Oh and I'd put that ugly bike behind a car out of sight, not sure why anyone would want to take it, but you can't be too careful.

    Yes that's the plan this one is off to avalanche ins few weeks. I want to dial it in and get a GOOD HONEST run on it. Raced today dh at fintanna and it rocked only spot I had was a rock drop that the steep ha put me in a nose dive position which got a bit unerving but my bad I chose a pretty shotty line off the rock roller..... I did up the low speed to com at front dive on low to mid speed rollers and keep the front higher without compromising too much low speed..... id say its pretty damn dialed.... AMAZING fork for sure... excited to get the avy cart for it but this is the first fork that I have wanted to get some time on before doing the cart. Fox did a great job on this one......

    Are you doing the avy cartridge for the fox? I'm thinking about putting one in my totem solo-air,but I'm pretty happy with it. I could be happier though:) It seems your the only guy discussing the cartridge on the web,so wanted to see what you thought.

    Not too the fox craig is looming to make upgrades for the new fox stuff and carts for the older 36s and 40s.
    The 36 is amazing and love it but my boxxer avy is my go to.....I dig the single crown feel right now and as always I like to get hands on with new stuff so I have a actuall review of it... if not then it would be a totem avy or my 66avy for sure...the avy cart is way better than rockshox I.ternals for sure. My boxxer wc is a whole different animal now....

    Its an IH Yakuza HT. Made to accept 200mm dual crown forks. They can be found for sale on mtb websites used. Have not made them for a few years, and IH is defunct. Tough frame, very durable and stiff. Plus it uses a 1.5" head tube.
    PS, SC means Single Crown, as in Single Crown Fork

    Its a 15", I would have to measure the TT when I get home. But, if you do a google search for an Iron Horse catalog, you can look at the geometry's. I am six foot and it is great for DH, but too small to trail ride on for me. Good luck, but I would recomend you check out the Ragley Bagger 288.

    only 100mm travel, but takes a serious beatdown, easily the most fun bike I've owned (this is my second Rampant as I was too lazy to raw my original Team red/white so sold the frame and bought a Raw Rampant)


    as long as the pilot is willing, with a change of tires to 2.35" Minions or High Rollers will go stupid quick down nasty terrain, and handles the big stunts no problem

    I'm 99% positive that's incorrect. A fox 36 160 had an axle to crown height of 545, while the 180 has an axle to crown of 565. I'm pretty sure

    Awesome Rampant :thumbsup: I'm curious about this bike, I would love one, but am curious if it is possible to get enough post extension so I could take it on the occasional trail ride. Do you ever use your rampant for trail riding or any serious pedaling? Can you get full extension with a longer seatpost ?

    Hmmm, maybe is within the range? I am going by what it was said by the guys at the shop. I get a long with them very well and they were pretty cool about the warranty. Hopefully I don't have to find out!!!!!

    I can also get a very good deal on it hence thinking about it but is still money I can put towards the Demo. The idea would be getting the frame and building it. Already done some costings on parts. Might be possible but only by the end of this year due to shortage of $$$$.

    I payed less than half for my RC4 which made it too good to pass up.:D

    How do you like that Session? I built mine up over the summer and it just never quited jived for me. I blame 66* head angle and a 1.5 steer tube on my Totem to prevent me from running an angleset.

    Nice kona, whats that weird coil looking thing at the bottom of the lower shock mount?
  • 02-08-2011
    StinkyFTW
    Kona's magic link. It does something to the effect of changing the leverage ratio as the shock compresses making the suspension more responsive.

    Well, I have only put one good ride on it (yesterday at SoMo), and it felt great so far, very smooth, IMO.

    ^@bighit First thing I'd replace is the pedals (those stock ones are useless once they get wet), then the seat post if that's the stock one. (my friend's exploded and he had a jagged seat post go where seat posts shouldn't go)


    Bye boxxer. Hello totem.

    how are you liking the totem on it?

    It's great. I feel it matches the frame better than the boxxer (*RIP*). The frames just so god damn long that the cables are really tight on it, I'm a little afraid of a crash snapping the derailleur cable or something.
