    Foes was slinging porn at Sea Otter!

    The first round of pics shows the Foes 29'er. I'm guessing this is going in to production. I talked to Brent about for quite a while and it sounds like a sure thing.

    Next is Foes commuters - fully rigid with 700C wheels - LX components. Something like $2,000. Foes is taking a chance with this one.

    Foes Tricycles! Notice the CNC billet cranks, axles, wheels, double crown fork and hydroformed frame. For a cool $1,000 you can get your toddler the sexiest tricycle on the block!

    Tapered head tube FXR - inch and and eighth to 1.5. Does the fork look stock? Looks longer than a 6" travel fork for some reason...

    FXR with Hammerschmidt, 150 mil rear axle and floating brake. Not sure if this is going in to production - seems like it would be a great option for some folks. I would love to have the ISCG on my FXR!

    My wife took some pictures while I was talking to Brent and Mitch...

    great shots

    I like the color of that FXR with the floating brake, and the top color of the Pasedena commuter. Do you have any others?

    Hey iheart, great pics - keep them coming!

    Just one thing: Foes uses Sea Otter to get feedback from customers regarding potential new designs. If it shows at Sea Otter, it doesn't mean it will actually make it to production... But you probably have more of an in on that one, I was not able to make it down there this year! The one time it's nice and sunny the whole weekend...

    If you have more pics, please post them or send them directly to my e-mail. Cheers!

    They have a few jerseys for sale - long sleeve and short sleeve, DH style. I bought one of the short sleeve. If you want one, you should call them right away!

    he does have a DH bike..

    It's called a Foes Fly! And he rarely rides it, much to my chagrin! I ride my Fly with an XTD fork like as my XC bike, my DH bike, well, it's just my bike... And I ride it!

    We should be harping on Iheartbicycles for buying a new FXR, custom color of Candy Cherry Red when he could be getting his azz whooped while pedaling his Fly!!!

    The Fly, any year makes a great DH bike, XC bike, AM bike, FR bike, heck, any bike.

    I guess it makes a great bike overall! Iheartbikes, Ride you Fly dammit! LOL

    Katana,
    Your Fly bike was awesome. It was one of the best frame design for the Fly.
    Next step for Foes might be: a 7" inches air fork Curnut platform (for light DH bikes and freeride like RS-7&Fly).
    Foes chairs Foes pit Foes jersey Foes bikes. 3 wheels for child. Pro on everything.

    About the Foes jersey, Freddy will get one for me.
    Did your heard Freddy????
    Already have past jersey 2001 to 2004. Missing one is the Azonic/Foes red&white around 1999-2000. It was one of the best in these sick years of the Foes Team.

    Plate 30 on a hardtail dual slalom bike.
    So the mysterious Foes racer is:
    Chris Powell finishing 30th on 32 finishers riders.

    It was not Troy D'Elias winner of 2009 4X Expert cat at Southbridge Fall Series.
    It was not julien Cammellini ex Foes riders (2009 team Chain Reaction Cycle) plate 30 at 2009 DH SeaOtter.

    About the Foes jersey:
    don't worry the order is done!!
    But we will have some kind of Foes letters on our team jersey this year in Canada (rumours has it).

    Miss Foes - that plate number is actually 305 - notice the other shot of the bike in the last pic...

    Edit - that was Troy - came in 9th out of 36...

    Troy? Then it makes sense!
    You're a good spy. Better than me!
    Troy D'Elias finished 9th in Cat 1 19-29 men DS.
    Previous result were from 2008 (my mistake).

    Anymore pics?


    By the way the Foes 29'er look great.
    29 inches useful? I don't know.
    But frame design in general is what makes Foes different.
    3 inches might be nice for XCO technical races (when I will get older and do that: XCO I mean!).

    Nice stuff but....

    I would rather have the prolite hardtail with sliding dropouts for SS use than a flat bar road bike that I'd be scared to take my eyes off of with any kind of lock; that commuter bike is an attention grabber though.

    I won't argue one way or the other as to 29'ers efficacy. Some people are in to it - others aren't. I am 6'4" and still prefer a 26" wheel and smaller frame - as it's more maneuverable....

    Not too many more pics. One of the DH Mono - which you all have seen.

    One of Specialized's new 29'er. Lots of these in their pit area.

    I can tell how my priorities have changed. Out of all those pictures, the one that I said I gotta get that is the trike.

    Perfect for my 3 year old and his daddy's ego. Of' course Mom will so NO.

    Guess Brent must have grand kids in the picture?

    Mom is wrong.
    Bike for a kid will be his first memory when he will get older.
    I can remember my CCM 24 inches first adventure on a bike.
    Before the tri bike as well.

    But seriously the 2.1 mono might be much lighter cutting tubes of too much aluminium and steel (seat tube and swing arm like the 2008 Tomac). At least 1 pound lighter. I have to draw a sketch...

    The updated FXR with the floating brake option, 150mm spacing and ISCG tabs is going into production. Brent says that if someone has an order in for an FXR now then they can add the ISCG tabs to that and make it Hammerschmitt (sp?) compatable.

    I rode the 29er briefly and it was fantastic. I've got an FXR, 4X & Prolite 2:1 and as soon as this hits production it'll be going into my collection as well. I've delayed from buying one for ages (although I was sorely tempted when Niner announced the WFO) because I'm a Foes nut but now Brent gets more of my money.

    Interesting conversation between Greg Herbold & Brent regarding the Foes suspension design. H Ball was paying a lot of attention to the Curnutt on the DHS (see pic) - not entirely sure what this means but it was a very indepth conversation.

    Then it probably wouldn't be particularly fair to show you this... ;-)



    Doesn't look shabby for a 3 year old frame with a respray, does it?

    Rumors continue to circulate about the possibility of a single crown Curnutt fork - (which would be awesome), but does anyone know anything concrete on this?

    Brent showed a single crown XTD at Interbike several years ago. I think he only built 1 or 2... Avy at Wrench Science has been harassing him to put it into production.

    It would be a great option for many of his bikes - FXR, R7 and Fly.

    100% agree!

    Ride559; great bike! You're right: the 2006 is unchanged in 2009 and perfect for at least 10 years more! Not good for business. Too much quality!

    Hey there!

    Does anyone know if the travel on the 2010 FXR will be increased as well, say to 7" and the ability to run a 2.5 in the rear? The floating brake is great along with th 150mm thru axle. I may just have to upgrade in 2010!

    That candy colored FXR is really nice.

    Thanks!
