    2010 FXR - some frame changes

    Front shock mount looks way beefier for next year.

    I test rode a 2010 for about a week. Really nice bike, tracks well, and weighed in at 30 pounds. The components were not quite the lightest either, Shimano SLX, Fox Fork 32, Probably could have gone down a pound.

    I cannot say enough about the Curnutt air. Really nice.

    Sorry about the poor quality pics, but I do have some better ones that I took at home.

    OK, yes they are pretty bad, but here are some that are a bit better.

    BTW, bike works great, really stiff frameset.

    very nice

    Very nice bike!! How is the bike on small bumps, such as roots? I'm sure it pedals great, my 06 fly does!

    cool man, you've done well. i would've gone black myself, but the green is interesting, definately stands out in a crowd.

    how you finding the curnutt air?

    Looks nice - does it not feel a bit " under-forked" with the skinny 32mm Fox's on it?

    The FXR is such a beefy, tough beast it always seem like it deserves Fox 36's!!

    How's the rear end lateral stiffness on this frame? I've got an Uzzi, which I really like, except for how flexy the rear can be.

    I have the '09 model, which has the same rear triangle - it is very laterally rigid. Climbs very well and can take lots of abuse.

    The bike is very rigid. This was a demo bike, trying to decide which bike to get. The curnutt is an amazing shock. While it did climb well, not as good as the Ibis Mojo I demoed, but definitely better than an Uzzi VP, and lighter as well. The more bikes I ride, the more difficult the decision!

    Who did you demo this bike from. I have been looking at them and I think I want to try one before I buy one.

    The demo was set up by Pasadena Cyclery. It helps that Foes is located in Pasadena and one of the guys at Pasadena Cyclery works part time at Foes.

    It's more like:

    One of the guys from Foes works part-time at Pasadena Cyclery. "Dirty" Dave assembles and sets up every single Curnutt shock and fork that leaves the factory.

    He's a good guy. Stop by the shop and say "hi."

    Thanks. Dave is a great guy, really helped me out with setting up the Curnutt. The Foes is an awesome bike. Now just to find out when they will be available??? Large, Floating rear brake, 150 mm thru axle.

    I realize your looking for someone to pull the floater off and take a pic, but I thought these might give you a better view. Not a whole lot to it. Bracket mounts on a bearing and is held on by the axle. Hopefully it's what you're looking for.

    No. It's just a hole where the 12mm axle goes through. The aluminum plate follows the contour.

    Hi Margaritaman,

    Where did you get those heim joints? Those would be complementary on mine (that, and and the rod in CF)!

    x rider,
    If you don't go with the floater w/ 150mm TA, it will be a standard 135 QR dropout I believe, similar to the '09's. See below:

    yes but I wanted to make an Inferno floater fit on my FXR 2007 model and wanted to know what changes they made to the dropout of the 2010 model.

    This might interest a few of you reading this thread. With the 150mm rear, the stays are obviously wider. I used (for a while) a set of RaceFace Atlas cranks that were modified to clear. Unfortunately the chainline wasn't 100% to my liking either.
    On went a set of Saint cranks for an 83mm BB. Using a RaceFace retro kit and swapping to a Saint f.d. I made it all work better than ever. Chainline is right about 56mm.
    We climbed 4923ft this weekend and everything worked perfectly.
