    One of my friend have a (99?) Balfa Nouveau Riche all custom build with a Super Monster T, very wide rims (26"f/24"r), maybe 2-3" wide, pneumatic gear shifting (was made by Shimano I think), and highly tuned DHX rear shock. The bike is just so damn cool, it rips down DH rock gardens and gnarly drops like butter. I wish I could post a picture, but he doesn't want to have pics of his setup around, so I respect that.

    Sick ride though

    I heard back in 2010 that Jimmy was going to make another batch of Hood mussels... anyone know anything about this?

    Nice. Still miss my '00 RM6.

    Lots of them broke, but I got 10,000 miles out of mine.

    That bike could hold a wheelie for a mile.

    I was misled into thinking it was a talent that I had as the rider, until I got a new bike and couldn't get the front wheel off the ground.

    i havnt rode it much, just enough to see what the suspension was like and to make sure my howitzer bb wouldnt effect it. yeah.....theres no room. so i had to file down the left cup a bit to make it fit.

    2005 DHR with some newer parts + improvements:


    • drilled to slacken the angle
    • huge flat Blackspire 808 for better handling
    • Thomson DH stem: short, low, and wider clamp area
    • Straitline platform pedals for more grip


    Looking for a Ti spring for the shock and need new rims

    2006 Cove Shocker

    It does not meet the 10 year age limit mentioned before, but is hard to argue that stuff like this does not age pretty fast. Every year there are new and wonderful reasons to ditch the old bike and hop on something new. What I think is most awesome about this thread is that most, if not all, of these bikes are still being used regularly. What better testament to engineering is there than longevity. This not so svelte, but oh so rad, little number came in to my life in September and I look forward to many years of fun on board my electric blue Shocker.

    That thing is awesome. Is that some kind of steering damper? Never heard of the fork or shock. Looks like all air or elastomer. Great collectors piece. It should be in a museum.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    I'm a huge Intense fan and have been for years. That's an absolutely sweet M1. I can't help but crack a smile when I see one of the originals in good original condition.

    Yeah, it is a steering damper. Can't quite remember but they might have been the first Hopey ones. A few of my teammates ran them back then ('96). The fork was called ZZyZx ("Zye Zix") It was made by Bullet Bros. Used the Hanebrink internals. Scaled down to 4-8" instead of the 7"-10" travel on the Hanebrinks! They were horrible forks! plastic bushings wore out so fast the forks would wobble. Guys would rebuilt them daily. Also would seize up in wet/muddy conditions. I remember guys drilling holes in the bottom to let water drain out LOL. The rear shock was a Fox Shock. Small bump compliance it did not have!

    I'll try to get around to scanning some old race pics from '93 to '98.

    Here is my old rig, sold it a few years ago. It rode alright but the HA was far to steep. The part spec worked good though, actually the old shimano 755 brakes I am still using and they work great.. Not bad for >10yo brakes.

    Not bad at all for not just the brakes. A very good fork and all around build from the looks of it.

    Yeah it was a great build for 03. My 16yo self worked his ass off building it up haha. I still see some of the older norcos around me but they are dying off pretty quickly.

    I love these threads of retro bikes! Especially since I got into DH and Free Riding on a 99 Specialized FSR DH and that was less than a year ago! I came a long way over the summer; learned a lot and had to progress to a more modern DH rig. Picked up a 08 Turner DHR. But I wouldn't get rid of the 99 FSR DH; restore it and keep it as a collectors piece.
    Check out my video on you tube riding the hell out of my 99 FSR DH at North Star summer 2012; search Pantera Live Wire
    Keep those old school bike alive; it's the history of the sport!

    Newer than '93. I think those came out in '97 (your version at least, there were earlier versions with less travel and a casted upper link instead of the milled one). I raced on one. It was a good bike at the time. Designed by Jim Busby.

    Re: Old School DH bikes

    I have to say I love this post. I love the older simple styling of the FSR type rear that were the standard. Was why I loved my M1, Spec DH, and now my azonic recoil that I just found on eBay. Once I get it built I'll post a shot of her.

    Re: Old School DH bikes


    So here's the frame and the first thing I'm changing is the rear Romic shock. Looks old and after cleaning it today, the bushings are shot and the damping is not so good. So I got a new Fox Van RC coming for it. Also picked some Easton Havoc DH wheels from Jenson's the other day. Can't wait to get her all built up for this weekend and hopefully ride.

    The one thing I was surprised was that the bearings are all still smooth and have no play in them.

    I'll post some pictures of it once it's done. Hopefully Sunday morning I'll have all finished. Got my fox shock in this and installed. It will correct the angles that the frame suffered from with the Romic that came stock. The Romic were the incorrect length. The frame was supposed to come with a 8.75" and Romic was 9"

    So all need to do is put the chain on and she's done.

    Only thing I might do is change the stem to a direct mount to lower the front and a heavier spring.

    That Azonic looks good. What is the model? I can't read it and want to add it to my vintage DH bikes folder with proper name.

    Unless you have insider info then Intense made it for xtension. I have 4 Intenses and recognize most of the frame parts as theirs with a few unique parts.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    yeah, you're right, because they don't make ripoffs in china...
    seriously though, you might wanna do a little more homework. xtension still sells the xtm(the actual model name of this bike) all these years later. absolutely nothing to do with intense...

    Re: Old School DH bikes

    It's interesting that they advertise the xx tension DH frame has 10" travel and a 66° head angle. I measured my azonic recoil (same as xx tension) with a domain dual crown and it has measured head angle of 64°. Will post some new shots of it later now that it's all finished.

    Here's a finished shot it. Took it for a ride and remembered how crappy a DH pedals on flat ground.

    thats the great thing about the old school dh bikes. they were meant for dh/fr only. only crazy guys tried riding them long distances yet alone uphill.

    ive been riding a ht for 6 years and finally got a fully again. now i go between my rm7 and my echo 24" trials depending on if i want to huck off of walls or if i want to fine tune some skills. but after the bmx track dries up, ill be taking my ns and rm down there

    Some sickness on the last couple pages! This is my 1996 LTS-DH with 1998 (99) Boxxer Pro's. Fun bike and was the DH to have back in the late 90's....before you make any comments on the stem....I know, I know, but it's a medium frame and I'm 6'. Cockpit was a little tight, feels comfortable now

    Any Yeti DH-9 or Schwinn Straight 8 riders still out there? Need a new rear hub? I picked up two edco big rock (the swiss one) hubs awhile back when I was restoring an old straight 8 and I have the spare on Ebay. Its never laced- here's a link: Edco Big Rock Swiss Made Hub RARE Yeti DH 9 Schwinn Straight 8 | eBay

    Just thought that if someone out there needed one, this would be the place to find them

    This has to be the BEST thread I have ever come across!!
    I literally got a hard on looking at all of the old school builds!

    I can't wait until I get my hands on an old school rig, I will definitely post pictures once I have it.

    Hellow all! I'm new here and building a new project! i've got a '03 Norco Nitro and recently i've bought a '05 Norco VPS A-line frame and Boxxer U-turn fork from Flatoutcycles. Both items are in great condition. I'm trying something new, DH/FR, hence the new project.

    I have to say that the fork is ill matched to the frame. That frame gets a little over 8"of travel to the 5" of travel that the fork gets.

    That's interesting linkage. It looks like it would work except for the unsprung weight aspect. How about a detailed pic for the sake of posterity? How's it ride?

    That STS LTS wasn't GT's downhill bike. It was a Lite "all mountain" bike. The Lobo was their DH bike of that era.

    Who makes that fork and how much travel does it have? Looks like a cool build.

    It's a Look fournales, they don't make them any more, it's says in the booklet that it has 80mm travel but it feels like more to me. I just like linkage forks.
