#2: Post your Single Crown DH/FR beauties!
Sorry but the other thread has a ton of pictures deleted after 20 pages and I used it for reference and ideas....
So I figured Id start another for the 2010/2011 so I/we can reference it again... Besides it was great seeing all the single crown set ups, I know I tried several different things based on what I saw in that thread...
So same thing they are obviousley stout forks and we have a new player to the arena this season the fox 36 180mm...
So if you got a single crown DH/FR bike lets see em!:thumbsup:
Im back with a 2011 66 chassis and Avalanche cartridge in it, figured its great in my bxr WC Id grab the single crown unit for the 66 and LOVE it... WOW what a difference the new bushings and lowers make over 08/09 holy "rhymes with RAP" ....
Banshee Scythe Do-it-all turned race bike
I built this bike as consolidation of my Yeti 575 and ASX to my one bike for college. I got into the racing scene and ran out of money so I've basically been racing this dual ring, single crown 7x7 set up for more than a season.
Great fun having strengths and weaknesses different from most other bikes on the track, makes for some unique lines.
Took awhile to get used to this bike but I'm quite confident on it now. Loves railing berms and controlled drifts. Stiff as hell! Handles bottom outs better than many DH bikes I've ridden with.
Fork is a Totem 2-step with a long story. After countless back and forths and services it's now got a DH damper and works quite well. I think it's quite unique in the is as when I contacted SRAM Taiwan they told me they never actually shipped any 2 steps with DH dampers.
Rims are different color because I cracked my 729 on the rear on my first race due to negligence (new wheel build and having too much fun on a new bike multiplied by a nasty case = cracked rim). I'd like to note though that the DS 28 on the front has surpassed my expectations greatly. Perfect rim, never dents and never flats, I just wish it was wider.
Enough words. Time for pics. Don't have many bike vanity stationary pics so I'll just load in some action shots.
