    I've already done some colour changing :D 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" :D

    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..:thumbsup:

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

    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.
