    Big Black

    * Rider height weight: H = 6'-03" W = 205-210 lb with gear
    * Main purpose: AM/trail/light freeride. 20 min. road ride to trailhead.
    * Riding terrain conditions: Everything. Geared towards best DH performance with minimal climbing penalty. Most of my buds are lighter, and on lighter bikes.
    * Frame Size & Color: Large 04 Moment / Black
    * Fork: Maverick DUC32. Light & stiff, but have had issues with seals and air spring.
    * Shock: Avalanche Montie, 600 lb spring, custom-valved. Fantastic FR and smoother downhill, not the must supple on really rocky stuff.
    * Brakes: '03 XTR calipers, XT hydro levers, 180mm CTS front caliper adapter. Have had issues with sticky rear pistons, and noisey/grabby up front with adapter. Will probably change at some point.
    * Cranks: '03 XTR, 180mm. Fine, but replacement rings are too expensive.
    * Shifters: LX 9-spd push-pull triggers. No problems.
    * Front Derailleur: XT 760 series BS/TP
    * Rear Derailleur: XTR 950 series long cage, Avid roller-ma-jig. No problems.
    * Pedals: Time
    * Stem: Maverick 105 mm
    * Handlebar: Easton Monkey-Light Aluminum, 1.5" rise.
    * Seatpost: Thompson 27.2 x 410mm, zero offset. Never an issue.
    * Saddle: WTB
    * Bottom Bracket: RF Deus X-Type.
    * Cassette: Sram PG 990 11-34t, works fine with XT/XTR
    * Chain: Sram PC 990
    * Headset: 12-year-old Silver Chris King
    * Grips: ODI lock-on
    * Front Tire: Kenda Blue Groove 2.35
    * Front Rim/ Spokes: Mavic 317, DT 2.0/1.8.
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Maverick 24mm silver
    * Rear Tire: Kenda Nevagal 2.35
    * Rear Rim: Mavic 717, next rims will be slightly heavier/UST due to pinch flats with tubes
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: '03 XTR center-lock. No problems.
    * Cables: I just buy two new wires and 6' of housing from the LBS once a year.
    * Overall Weight: Don't really want to know.
    * Misc: Hope seat post clamp.

    Future:
    Most of these parts went from an XC Blur to a Heckler, now on the Moment. I just replace anything that breaks or wears out with something a bit stronger, so the bike continues to get heavier. There are a few of my buddies that have to wait for me on the climbs, but I wait for most of them on the descents. I've got lots of FR possibilities near my house, so I plan to get some pads and continue to step it up a bit.

    The only thing that's given me any down-time has been the DUC32. If I continue to have problems I plan to switch to a heavier 150-160 mm single-crown.

    I get a lot of rear pinch flats with tubes. Plan to switch to UST or Stans.

    The Stan's conversion is pretty good. It took a while for the Nevegals to seal up, maybe two weeks completely.

    A word of note...they will feel squirrly w/o a good amount of pressure in them. The tube actually helps support the sidewall and when you remove it, you loose a bit of support. UST tires have thicker sidewalls to combat this, so the best solution really is UST all around. But it's pricey and requires tires and wheels. Big $$$.

    I think I ruined one tire by not keeping the fluid up to date in them. Check them every month or so just to make sure they have some Stan's juice floating around in there.

    Thanks for the tips. I have a buddy that might have some extra Stan's strips, so I may give it a shot with the Blue Groove/Navegal. I'll need to throw a new set of rims on my existing hubs sometime soon, so I may just do that the next time I need tires and go all UST, anyway. I build my own wheels so that's a help.

    Another tip with Stans Ive found this works better with a wider rim which supports the Sidewalls better, most light XC rims are quite narrow.

    Ive just switched to DT Swiss 5.1 rim very nice and Im using DTs rim strip and valve which is way superior to Stans rim strip setup. But I stil use Stans sealant this is a bullet proof setup.

    Also some tires are better Stans than others

    The DT 5.1 at $70 and another $40 for the tubeless kit ends up being pretty pricey. Those or the Mavic XM 819 are probably good, but I'll have to see if Sun or somebody makes a more reasonably priced option that works well with UST tires. With UST, I shouldn't need sealant (or very little), since I don't ride thorns. At 200 lb in rocky terrain, pinch flats are my main issue.

    Got rid of the Joker and got a Moment (can only afford one bike in addition to my fixie commuter), wanted more trailbike and definitely wanted ICT. Loved the Joker, it rode really well, but my riding preferences have changed some towards trailbiking. Have done two three hour rides so far, and I absolutely love the Moment! Climbs really well, and descends well too! You just gotta love the ICT, I had a chance to ride both a Dare and a Rogue for some time this summer, and I completely fell in love with the ICT.

    * Rider height weight * H = 6' 1" W = 240lb with gear
    * Riding terrain conditions: Trailriding and some freeriding

    * Frame Size & Color: Black (05) 17"
    * Fork: Marzocchi 66 SL at 145-150 mm of travel
    * Shock DHX Coil 5.0
    * Brakes: Shimano Deore w. Dangerboy levers and Hayes 8" rotors
    * Cranks: Middleburn RS 7
    * Pedals: Shimano 540 (pedals in the pic are DMR V8:s, test ride choice)
    * Shifter: SRAM X-7
    * Front Derailleur:-
    * Rear Derailleur: SRAM X-7
    * Stem: 50 mm noname
    * Handlebar: Syncros Bulk
    * Seatpost: SDG I-Beam
    * Saddle: SDG Bel Air ST (I-Beam)
    * Bottom Bracket: FSA Platinum DH
    * Cassette: SRAM something
    * Headset: Syncros Steelset w. deep cups
    * Grips: Lizard Skin Logo lock-ons w. Dangerboy end caps
    * Front Tire: Nokian NBX 2,3"
    * Front Rim/ Spokes: Mavic F219/DT Champion
    * Front Hub/Skewer: Formula 20 mm
    * Rear Tire: Nokian NBX 2,3"
    * Rear Rim: Mavic F219/DT Champion
    * Rear Hub/Skewer: Formula/XT
    * Cables:
    * Misc: E-thirteen SRS chainguide
    * overall Weight: 16,4 kg

    Would like to get the weight down to 16 kilos, but this will do for now. Doesn't feel this heavy out on the trail .

    The chainguide works like a charm, I've had it since I got the Joker and it hasn't dropped the chain one single time. Really easy to install on the Moment, even though there aren't many positions due to the chainstay. Don't know if the new model chainstay causes trouble though, I have the old ones. I think the model was called urban, I have the bashring that covers up to a 36 tooth chainring. I use a 34 t chainring at the moment.

    It rides really well. I fell in love with the 66 SL immediately, it's incredibly stiff, relatively light and extremely adjustable. I ran it at 170 mm on the Joker and have been experimenting with 140-150 mm on the Moment. It's very well balanced with the rear.

    This is my first post on this site and it's a happy one. I just got this in on Thursday and even though I don't have the wheels yet, I had to start building it. I'll post pics when I finish. I just couldn't wait to gloat


    * H = 6' 0" W = 165lb with gear

    * Coments on components: I ordered it with a SRAM-happy build kit. I might have to change a few things but I'll try it first to see how it goes.

    * Main purpose: All Mountain do everything - I wanted a burly dream bike, I think I found it.

    * Riding terrain conditions: Sierra Foothills and the Bay. Lots of rock gardens and single track. I try to make it to Downieville and Santa Cruz as much as possible. I might start hitting up the resorts, as I never have.



    * Frame Size & Color: '07 Medium in Smoke (One of a kind mistake. They accidentally painted a Moment frame in an Epiphany Color)

    * Fork: Fox Van 36 RC2

    * Shock: Fox DHX Air 5.0

    * Brakes: Avid Juicy Carbon

    * Cranks: Truvativ Stylo Carbon 175mm

    * Shifters: SRAM X-O

    * Front Derailleur: SRAM X-9

    * Rear Derailleur: SRAM X-O

    * Pedals: Shimano M647

    * Stem: Thomson Elite 100mm

    * Handlebar: Easton MonkeyLite SL

    * Seatpost: Kore

    * Saddle: Kore

    * Bottom Bracket: Truvativ GXP

    * Cassette: SRAM PG-990

    * Chain: SRAM PC-991

    * Headset: Chris King No-Threadset Black

    * Grips: Lizard Skinz Moab

    * Front Tire: Kenda Navegal 2.35

    * Front Rim/ Spokes: Sun-Ringle S.O.S./DT Swiss Champion

    * Front Hub/Skewer: DT Swiss 340 20mm Thru

    Future: Might change the cranks to either Race-Face Deus or FSA K-Force MegaExo (have had troubles with Truvativ in the past). Also might want to lighten up the front end with a Float.

    Like I said, will send pics soon.

    Swerveon,
    Congrats on the new bike. I love my Moment. One thought - at 6'0" running a medium frame, you will want a long seatpost. I don't know how long your Kore post is. But, you will probably need a 410mm post. I'm currently running a Thomson. Enjoy the bike and post pics.

    Moment updates

    My moment is now sporting a Fox 36 RC2 TALAS fork. It'll soon be getting new wheels and brakes as well.

    I'd stay away from the Deus crankset, the plastic spacers they use between the BB cups and the frame can cause the bearings to end up misaligned. For the price you could get an XT crankset, a much better designed and stiffer setup. My DHX-A bottoms way too easily, maybe I'll try to get a Cane Creek...

    How do you like the Maxxis tires? What other tires have you tried? I've long wanted to try some of Maxxis' line, but haven't had the chance...

    Maxxis tires

    For a while, I have Nevegals on all my bikes. But, once I switched all my bikes to tubeless, I had issues with getting Kenda tires to seal properly. Sometimes, they would seal, and other times they would ooze white liguid thru microscopic pores in the sidewalls. Anyways, so I switched to Maxxis. I'm running the Maxxis Minion DHF / DHR 2.35 on my Rogue and Moment and the High Roller 2.1 tubeless on my Moto-Lite. I've also tried the Cross Marks. The Cross Marks are very fast rolling, but I wanted more side lugs for cornering. The High Rollers are good all-around tires, although I don't think they corner as well as Nevegals. The Minions so far have been fantastic - no complaints.

    The TST air feels very nice. Much smoother than the DH 5 air I had. The rebound is also much better.

    I'm posting a picture, but its not a recent one so I have a fox fork instead of the magura, and control tech carbon rims instead of the ellsworth carbon rims.

    Did you buy this bike as a package? I was just wondering the origin of the Ellsworth wheelset and why you'd choose that as opposed to some other custom build.

    It is part of a custom build, I have a friend that works at Ells so he gave me a break on some stuff. I had the option between these and some suns and he had some good things to say about the way these wheels are make. I figure they nice enough bikes that they are not going to put thier name on some crap wheels. I like them so far, they are straight pull with spokes that taper on either end of the spoke. pretty nice looking too.

    I am not a bike snob nor a pro rider so i figure these rims will be good enough for my riding. Sorry I cannot give you more info on them, I believe they out source the wheels to a guy based in Japan, not 100% on that. If you get a chance to see some in person check them out, they ride nice.
    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?
