    Once that's done how about tackling the "Ellsworth" graphic ?[/QUOTE]
    Someone posted pics recently of a set of new CrossMax's with the stickers removed...looked pretty stealth! I believe he was a Turner rider, the pic was posted either over on the What Bike to Buy forum, or the Turner forum.

    No can do on the annodized Ellsworth's as the graphics are laser-etched into the frame. Much more durable compared to the old stickers that tended to peal off easily.

    Man, that is a SWEET looking bike! Did I understand you correctly that that's your first mountain bike ever? Not a bad choice.

    Stem degree?

    Hi msylvan, just wondering, is your stem at a 15 degree angle? If so, do you like the angle?

    Stem length and degree rise?

    Hi Merlin,
    I've gotta size small 04 Truth, but I'm having a bit of a problem with the top tube length and need to make the adjustments required to have a top-tube length similar to that of the medium. Now your probably asking why I didn't just get the medium frame to begin with. The answer is that I would've got the medium frame which has a top tube length of 23.5" but because the stand-over height was too much, I resorted to the small, thinking I can make adjustments with some components. Anyways, this is why I have the small, and it's top-tube length is 22.25". If you do the math, this is a 1.25 inch difference in length. To compensate for this, I decided to put in an EC70 seatpost that has 3/4"off-set. Currently, I have a 110mm/10 degree stem. Unfortunately, this stem is too short, and entirely noticable, since I feel scrunched up in the saddle. I'm considering getting a longer stem to compensate for the 1.25" that I don't have, but am afraid of losing steer performance. Do you have a longer stem on your truth, and if so, how do you like it? I wanna set it up my Truth for XC racing like you because I'm entering a race this Spring. Can you help a fellow racer figure out what to do about my stem? Thanks.

    What to do about my stem?

    Hi Merlin,
    I have a 2004 Truth in a small, but I'm having a bit of a problem with the top-tube length (22.25"). It's too short and I need a few more inches (let's not get nasty hear now). Anyways, I did try the medium and it's top-tube length is what I'm looking for (23.5). Your probably asking yourself, "Why didn't you just get it then." The answer is simple, the stand-over height was too much, so a resorted with the small assuming that I could remedy the problem with some components. If you do the math, the difference in top-tube lengths between the two sizes is 1.25". To compensate for this, I installed an EC70 seat-post that has a 3/4" set-back. Well, I still have about .5" more to inches to reach the desired cockpit room I'm looking for. Obviously, this is where we consider what stem should be used. What stem length and degree rise do you think I should get, and what impact will this have on steer performance. I'm entering a race this Spring, and so I wanna set-up my bike for XC racing. Hope you can help a fellow rider out. Thanks.

    Sincerely,
    Mike

    XTR Sticker Removal

    They were not on that greatto begin with. THere were a couple of bubbles which si what brought my attention to them. They peel off pretty easy. Just need a good thumb nail to get them going. Looks much cleaner without them.

    Truth size

    Thanks, I went with a (16"?) small vs. medium mostly to have a little faster handling.
    I used the Weirwolf in the snow last weekend and I was impressed at how well they handle. I think the angular treads help. I have my front set up opposite to the rear.
    I had Mosquito's on before these and they were terrible in any moisture at all. -Bill

    One more try

    I'll try this again since I screwed up the pic last time. Again, the Down-tube Guard is great for these things considering the thickness of the tubes and the kind of riding I do.
