    Thanks. Mine isn't the only sick one though. Seeing all these rigs takes me back and fills me with a unique excitement reminiscent of that time of my life. Keep them coming!

    I'm really curious what you are doing with the Cranks and Brakes. I need to get new cranks on my S8 and I feel a new set of Avid Codes are in my future. Just not sure how everything will bolt up.

    MONSTER Bullit

    not really DH...more FR.
    I think it was a 2001 SC Bullit with an AVY / Monster combo.
    Plus I threw a 24" on the rear to slack it out (when it was still cool)!
    ...of course RED was the fastest color.

    delihustler,

    Sweet Bike. I think that is the First Super 8 built in 1999 or 98. Great Bike,
    but I need to share some info with you. You said its your Wifes bike so this
    is probally not a factor,but I need to tell you anyway. They did not gusset the
    headtube that year as you can see. Guys were ripping the HeadTube right off
    those bad boys when they first came out. The Double Clamp was too much
    for her. Saw it happen a LOT. If you could put a Long Travel 66 or Totem,whatever
    to prolong the life of the frame. Also,I would not want the headtube to rip apart
    while your wife was flying down the hill. Peace.

    I have wanted to put a single crown fork on it since I've rebuilt it. Want something with a bit more travel, so have been looking at 66's.

    that's what I have on my Super 8 {66}. I bought it used off a guy in AZ that ran
    it on his Turner HighLine. I have used a 02 Monstor on it forever. Still have
    it. I thought the 66 would be "Kewl" and all the numbers match up. I looked at
    your HeadTube and it looks like the steeror tube is long enough? Dont know if
    I want to sell her though? It's not a very good shot,but check my user gallerly.
    Peace.

    One slight problem, I'm in the UK postage would be a killer. I've had mine since 2003, and I remember now that mine had a new front triangle about 6 months before I got it, I think I will get some single crowns forks for him, as soon as I get some money that is

    My 99 Foes Weasel with a 2001 Marz Super T. One of the best handling bikes I've ridden.

    And my 04 Specialized Big Hit with 02 Marz Monster T. Heavy is good.

    Don't think I'll ever part with either of these bikes. Keep em in the stable.

    I had posted an Ellsworth Dare somewhere but I found one that was older!


    A few things I have noticed with all these rigs is the Karpiel's look timeless. Also, lots of inverted forks, but only a few old Manitou Carbon forks.

    My Santa Cruz V10.1 and still riding with it
    I got it as new and it is one of the very last ones before V10.2
    I used to have Shiver but changed to Avalanche DHF-8.5mt two years ago,
    thought I still have Shiver as spare fork.

    This year at Malaga/Spain (Thank You very much Thebikeshuttle.com)

    just picked up a swchinn homegrown.

    I decided to make the change to downhill now that I have somewhere to go. I picked up a straight 8 from a kid for pretty decent price. My only question is how soft is too soft on the suspension. I'm a large guy at 6'1'' 215 so i know it will be a little softer. It's kind of like riding a dirt bike. I'm looking for ways to make it ride a stiffer.

    Must post pictures. And a little jealous.

    30% sag is what you want to achieve. If your over or under that figure you can try the preload adjuster, but you typically don't want more than 2-3 full turns of the preload ring. If your outside of those ranges you'll need a new spring.

    As far as getting a new spring for it, I would contact your LBS first. I have run into issues where they are no help and have to go to the frame or shock manufacturer for the proper spring rate. Even today, if I have a question about my Super 8 the Santa Cruz tech guys are happy to answer. In Schwinn's case it might not be as easy due to the changes they've gone through over the years. If Schwinn fails, maybe try Yeti, being that they also ran the Lawiill suspension.

    Cool videos.

    Think about how far technology has gone since then and what the same stuff would look like on modern DH bikes.

    What really gets me is people still resist new developments to this day.

    "Oh dude, they should have been on SS rigids. They they could have really ripped." LOL
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.
