    2011 Fxr

    Here's my 2011 FXR. I am using an Angleset on it to slack out the front end by 1 degree. it is more stable and even more fun that stock.

    The bike climbs fantastic and decends even better.






    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    He forgot to mention that it was custom made in an XL size along with a full 1.5 HT...

    Nice pics by the way!

    FXR looks like the best choice for freeriding and softer DH trail. 6 inches of travel and lighter bike than a mono DHS.
    Is it possible to put a full bashguard front to avoid chain outside of front gear?
    The purpose will be DH racin' like Magavalanche Alpe d'Huez and very long downhill trail like in the Alps.

    the 2011 FXR comes with a removable ISCG mount and mine also has the floating brake mount.

    With the anglset you can really slacken out the headtube and make the bike super stable. I slackened mine out by 1 degree and it really makes the bike more stable. I can only imagine what the 1.5 degree would do!

    Really digging my bike.

    BTW - this is what the raw finish looks like when you take steel wool to it!

    about, what, 6 months ago?

    you were over on the Ventana site putting Sherwood Gibson down for sticking w/ his lame suspension system, & now, here you are on a true single pivot just raving about it

    Sherwood hasn't updated his suspension design in over 10 years. It has the worst squat and pedal bob (these are two different things) of any suspension bike I know of.

    I currently own a Ventana and have owned several. It took a while for me to discern the issue with Ventana's, but once I did it was like a lightbulb going off.

    It is unforgiveable how bad ventana suspension is, given how easy it would be to fix.

    Witness the single pivot Foes, TNT turners and many others that don't suffer the characteristics Ventana does.

    It's clear you don't know squat, since you are equating all single pivots. Pivot placement makes a huge difference. Live & learn, troll!

    no doubt. true single pivots/rockerstay pivots, they're all the same. pivot placement actually makes a difference? really? oh well, you learn something new everyday

    thanks for the enlightenment
