    I'm trying to fix up an axonic xtension,can you tell me what rear hub width they need?
    12MM X ? .Mine doesn't have replaceable derailuer hanger. They are hard to find any details on, if anyone know's a link? What hole do most people use in the rear linkage? Mines got manitou metel shock without canister and bomber 888rc forks. Thanks

    Conejo Bikes DH and Freeride!

    The Conejo AP/5.... A USA designed, made, and machined bike that had 4.5" to 7.5" of travel and was a very basic design! A free ride and dh bike with long travel, elevated chainstay, with a passive pivot active suspension. There was talk before they stopped producing bikes that they were working on a DH frame that was dual shock with 12"-14" of rear travel called the "Harvey"! Another rumor is the company is considering restarting production of their bicycle frames in aluminum and titanium with production in Arizona.

    An old school pair of C-Dale DH pants from the Missy and Miles Volvo/Cannondale era.
    Like new condition and they fit me perfectly.
    $5 opening bid took them.



    Now just need to find the matching jersey.
    I have the same pants but blue. I have the matching red jersey to your pants. Size XL. I could part with it for the right price. Let me know if you are interested

    I recently picked up a Rocky Mountain DH Race series bike that I plan on getting tune up. I'm hoping all it needs is a tune up but is it worth fixing if it needs more? The frame has been signed by Wade Simmons, a local (BC, Canada) "Godfathers of Freeride" but haven't confirmed.

    I wouldn't put more money into it. Riding that thing down North Shore trails is gonna be tough. I don't doubt that Wade signed that, but what's a signature worth?

    Ride it til it breaks, buddy! =) You have the most awesome trails... lucky!

    Thanks for the reply. This is my first DH bike and not going to get into anything gnarly. Bought it to ride it. It didn't cost me much. If I do break it what front/rear shocks are available as cheapest replacement?

    XS Speed

    Old School DH bikes-xs-speed.jpg

    1996 rocky mountain XS Speed. Spent all its life as an everything bike.
    Super deluxe rear shock is toast and needs replacing but unsure what to do as its 170mm eye to eye. Still my favourite ride...it still does the odd trip out here and there.

    I like your bike, but I like even more the sentiment you express towards it and that you still ride it on occasion

    Hi all, I have problem, I bought nice full suspension frame to replace my hardtail. But seller don't know what is it. Nobody can tell what brand/make is this. There's no serial numbers, any stickers. It's simple single pivot, but with a lot of travel. I bought it with 200mm DNM Raimon shock, but it's a bit small and there fits 241mm shock. There are two more holes under actual position shock mount, it change geometry a bit. Frame has needle roller bearings. Seatpost size is 31.8mm, and 1,1/8" steerer tube. I bought it without dearilleur hanger, it's unusual because it must be mounted on inner side of frame. But i found very simillar on the internet, on that site they say it fits various Votec frames (here is link: http://pilo.co.il/d422-derailleur-hanger-for-votec#.VUvSbI7tmko ). In my opinion paint is original, or very good panted because it's under steer's, bearings etc. Simillar to RB Bandit, DunCon Transalp, Cannondale Super V DH, Sekim but more heavy, solid, massive and with bigger travel.
    I think it's all. There are all photos of bike/frame in full resolution : https://drive.google.com/folderview?...1E&usp=sharing

    Thanks in advance, I'm hope somebody know something about it
    Sorry for bad english...

    Mongoose AMP research (early 90's).... I cracked the frame and forks so many times, but AMP warranty was great. Mammoth was my first ever DH race... took 2nd in the jr. men... not bad for FL kid only riding quarry pits in FL.

    I'm still riding my 2001 Kona Stinky Five. I still use it for DH and FR as well as general around town riding. I even ride to and from work (just over 2 mi) like 4 days a week. As you can see I replaced the OE Fox Vanilla R coilover with a Manitou Swinger Air 4 way which is super plush and has never bottomed out. Great pedal platform. I replaced the OE Z1 fork with a '03 Marzocchi Z1 FR with the venerated HSCV cartridge and full oil bath. I keep thinking about getting a newer bike (this weighs about 50lbs) to save weight etc and then I go out on my Stinky and come back with a huge grin on my face. This bike is just so much fun.

    This bike always blew me away...back in 1997/98 I was racing DH at Ski Plattekill in upstate NY. The Spooky dudes were always at the race and we'd raise hell at night...place had camping in the parking lot....They were still kind of protoryping that rig at the time...one dudes name was Jack and the other guy's name was Chris...I was hoping to starting riding "for" them the following season, but I ended up moving to Colorado..I was racing my GT LTS DH...see below, still got it..good times

    Here is a 2005 Astrix Havoc frame that I am thinking about building up.

    I cannibalized it a few years back to build up a Yeti 303 RDH.

    Coming out of the wood works here.

    My Coiler will be turning 10y/o in a few months.
    Still my regular ride and all stock except for brakes and routine maintenance (fork services, tires, occasional derailleur adjustment).

    Bike is a tank.

    I love that bikes from yesterday were mostly all still built from 7005 series aluminum, 7-9" of travel and hydraulic brakes and for the most part can be built with today's components. just like today's dh rigs! Although today's bikes are slightly lighter
