    Here's my 08 Moment with 36 TALAS fork. I'm running X0 shifters / derailleur and XTR crankset. The wheels are King / Mavic. I think it weighs about 31.5 lbs, if I remember correctly.

    Well, here's my Moment. 31.5 lbs. The only thing I might change on it is the rear shock. I might go coil....

    Looks good! Good luck with those Formulas. I had the same ones on mine and ended up switching to Saints. They screamed like mother!

    Hey all, I've been diggin' the Moment for a while and have recently been seriously considering one to replace my Chumba XCL. It's a nice bike that I'm not totally dissatisfied with, but I've broken the seat stay once already... guess I'm looking for a bit more.

    I have a quick question for all you running 36s out there. What's the BB height when equipped with this fork? I may end up running a coil shock matched to a new Manitou Travis 150 that I have, but I'm a little concerned because of the geometry numbers listed on the website with what I would imagine is a 32? Let me know, thanks!
  • 03-09-2010

    The website states 14.2 inches with a 150mm fork. The extra 20mm axle crown height of the 36 raises it another .2inch.

    On paper 14.4 inch is really high for this amount of travel but in reality it does not seem to be detromental to the cornering of the Moment.

    Of course the height/profile of the tyres makes a difference and the amount of sag makes a big difference too. I tend to run a lot of sag on my bikes (30% on My Moment), I like the way the rear tracks the ground when set up that way. In the corners the bike compresses for loads of grip and stability.

    Thanks for the quick response Nsynk! It's interesting that you say the geo numbers are measured with a 150mm fork because what I see on the website is a static fork length of 520.7mm A2C. The A2C length on my Travis is the same as most 160mm forks at 545mm which is what causes my concern.

    Seems to me that increasing the fork length by nearly an inch would raise the bottom bracket by a good half inch with changes in the head & seat tube angles of about 1 degree. You raised a good point about sag and tire profile, but with my considerations I think any other changes to these numbers would be negligible.

    So with a presumed static BB height of ~14.7" and running roughly 28-30% sag, I should get a sagged BB height of about 13.7"... does that sound about right? This would be just under an inch higher than my XCL, and while not all bad, it would take some getting used to. I'll tell you one thing, pedal smacks on technical climbs would NOT be missed for sure!:thumbsup:

    Wouldn't 30% sag amount to around 2", at both ends of the bike, dropping the BB 2" and not just one?
  • 03-11-2010
    Gemini73
    After calculating it I came up with about 1.8", so yeah you're right. Two tenths would be splitting hairs, and BTW Manitou for whatever reason measures their shock stroke at 56mm. Sounds even better yet!
  • 03-11-2010

    don't worry about bb height with our travis. 1 inch up front doesn't translate into 1 inch increased bb height, more likely less than 1/2 inch, which shouldn't cause any concern.
  • 03-11-2010
    Nsynk
    I don't think the BB would be raised by as much as 1/2 inch probably 1/4 to 1/3 inch. If you think that the pivot point for rasing the front is actually the rear axle you could work it out using trigonmetry. With the points being the rear axle and the original top of the crown and the new top of the crown. The crown top points are only an inch apart and a long way from the point at the axle. Creating a long very thin triangle. The height of the triangle as it passes the bb will be the increased height of the BB. I recon the BB height is more like 14.4 , Which is still 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch higher than most AM bikes with 6'sh inches of travel.

    Sagged would be about 13.5, pretty ball park I think

    As an aside. I have considered running a 190 x 57 mm shock. They used to be quite common (Orange Patriot fro example). That would lower the BB by 3/4 inch and slacken the angles by 1 1/2 degrees. I doubt the warranty would remain valid but it might be worth it for the excellent geometry.

    Is there rear tyre to seat tube clearance for that?
  • 03-11-2010
    Nsynk
    I dont know and also how about the shock to frame clearance. Especially with a piggy back shock?
  • 03-11-2010
    perttime
    I see that some have mounted piggy back shocks the other way. Don't know if it would help enough, or if there's good reasons not to do it.

    Don't know, it is tempting though.

    Ellsworth Moment REDRUM
    Here are some more images of a Ellsworth Moment; and sorry guys, hate to do this to all of you, but this is by far the sickest build I have yet to see! Nicknamed the REDRUM by Ellsworth, and tattooed as such on the underside of the down tube, this bike is officially not being built by Ellsworth. This according to a friends friend that grouped up with our weekly ride yesterday. The pictures were snapped by me on the sly while the bike was still on the roof rack with my handle little canon. I also managed to get a couple pics when it was off-loaded. Nonetheless, I thought I would share these images. From the looks of it it is complete XO with Loaded wheels, hubs, bars, and seat post.

    Enjoy

    Any chance that is a 30.9 seatpost on redrum there?

    Isn't this just a Black Ano Moment with kit upgrades? With a little stitch work of Redrum on the down tube?
    Looks awesome but I don't understand how this is "not being built" by Ells????

    Seat Post on Ellsworth Moment REDRUM
    You think, dude ended up using a seat post and seat from another bike for the session; that seat post needs to see the business end of a hacksaw!

    That redrum is not even close to the "sickest ever." First, it's standard anno finish. I thought the redrums were supposed to be "murdered out" flat black. This one looks glossy in the pic. MAYBE if it was flat, it'd be cooler. A great build? Yes. Sickest ever? Na. I still think the toughest part of building a clean Ellsworth anything starts with the chain and seat stays. All ellsworth stays are black so any color triangle you pick outside of black automatically makes the bike two toned. Black is an easy out cause the bike is uniform by default. Show me a great build using the hard to work with two toned scheme. Or better yet, custom pain it to match.

    That is by far, the CLEANEST Moment, I have ever seen.

    Here's mine :

    Next update will be a matching CK BB, a beefier front tyre (2.5 instead of 2.3), and maybe a Chromag stem and bar later on

    Nice Moment!!! Just want to ask if you had an issue with the Floating Rotors rubbing the lower part of the Fox 36 Fork. Specifically on the Caliper mount.

    Thanks!
  • 09-16-2010
    drlaboole
    Indeed. Had to remove some paint from the fork to accomodate it.
    The CK hubs are a bit too wide ( same issue with i9 hubs)

    Misread your question, i think its 27.2 but the SST.2 is different, think that is 30.9
