    The more FR version

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

    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......

    I was a part of the original thread, so gotta continue with this one. Same bike, too, how funny. Yes, a Nomad w/ an Avy is as awesome as it sounds. That's an 06 Nomad with an 02 Avy DHS.



    Nearby shuttle trail. 3000 feet of vert and all natural. Can you find me?

    Biker? I don't even know her.

    What are your measurements on that (BB, HA)? I'm looking into an angleset with a SC fork, but a bit worried about dropping my BB too much. Pedals clip already with slackers and DC fork. Beautiful bike too!

    wow! that jedi looks sick! the frame and rims/spokes look really nice together. The blue on the fork (stickers/knobs) plus the hubs and headset spacers really match the other blue bits on the bike. you put alot of thought into that didnt you? lol

    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....

    love the bike and outmost respect on your riding skills, I noticed in one of the vids the you are using a hammerschmidt and the pics show a single ring, wich one you like better? also what kind of fork is that? I'm building something "similar" for an all year/mountain ride, nothing that nice though....

    I put a hammerschmidt soon after building that up because it was my only bike and I needed to pedal up sometimes
    it's a RS lyrik soloair lowered to 150mm.

    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.

    Added a freeride playbike to the mix, went with a small frame and 70mm X4 with a layback (on order) so I can keep it nimble for goofing off yet still make a dua ringer out of it for single track and Socal fun...

    I've already done some colour changing How do you find the RC4? Wondering if I should go for it or just save for a new DH bike. Those bloody 2011 demos are looking way to sexy. Keeping the SX of course!

    I've had them since August last year so been bashing them for a while, including 2 weeks in Whistler. LOVE THEM! They are Talas, and the 140mm adjust works beautiful for trail days as well.

    Thanks! Apparently this fork doesn't void warranty as length from crown to axel is the same as a 160mm travel fork. LBS where I purchased the bike also confirmed it but kept the 160mm Domain "just in case"

    RC4 is great..Got a sweet deal on it..
    If I were in your position, I'd get the Demo and send the SXT shock to Push or to Avalanche..

    here is my Rampant



    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 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.
    I have enough spare parts, I could throw together a year or 2 older Demo...Hmmmm

    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.

    Kona's magic link. It does something to the effect of changing the leverage ratio as the shock compresses making the suspension more responsive.
    Slow is cool too, right?

    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.

    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.
