    ustemuf,

    I think he rides downhill very well on his hardtail. In his defense, I present:

    Not sure, I bought a few different sizes until I found what would work.

    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.
    http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._5427103_n.jpg

    Here's an F5 with the 66.
    http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-..._3239528_n.jpg

    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

    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.

    '08 Commencal Supreme DH, ditched the Boxxers, put on the old trusty '07 66 and, what an amazing ride, wish I did the swap much earlier...

    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.
