    Foes RS7

    So a customer of mine got his new RS7 a couple weeks before christmas and before he picked it up I grabbed some quick shots of the frame.
    The RS7's haven't shipped yet, but they'll be out within a few weeks, I believe they were waiting to be painted.







    The frame has since been painted a flashy orange to match the rest of the Foes in their stable. If anyone was at sea otter this year and saw the orange 2008 Foes 4x and 2008 Fly, it's the same orange(owned by the same guy).

    Ride reviews= amazing!

    my DHS 2:1 is 47.5lbs....so far without the pedals, cranks, bb, bash ring, Foes chain guide, chain and X7 der......its 35lbs.


    Race Face Atlas FR:828g (83mm version...my 68/73 should be a bit lighter)
    Foes chain guide:149g
    X7 der:240g
    PC951 chain:297g
    aircorp pedals: 500g
    total:2014g=4.4lbs....39.4 lbs total weight(best guess so far)

    yup, three times in the first 4 months.

    all the problems were with the ATA cartridge. after the third time, they finally admitted there was a issue with a tolerance problem and put a new cartridge in there.....so far its been good since then

    Ok, ATA problems ! That was a real problem with the 2008 Taiwan-made Marzocchi. Seems to be fixed now.

    and 2007 models as well. yeah they said they had a revised cartridge that was put into production late in 2008...i of course didnt get the new one at first, but they have been great in taking care of me.

    Actually looks like there is very little hydroforming on the frame it is mostly a monocoque design, where the pieces are just formed and then welded together. Foes have made a lot of there bikes this way.
