    Throw a Ti spring on your Fly and you will lose about a pound!!!! The Curnutt steel spring is super heavy.

    Last time I had it weighed it was 43 1/2 lbs, that was with my DT Rims, might be slightly more with the Dee Max.

    Here's my baby...

    Unfortunatly, I had to modify her a little upon my arrival in Barcelona. I use her for everything now... Commuting, shopping, beach rides, trails, hucking, urban, etc. Hence, the Big Apples and 3 rings. But I keep the knobby's in the closet for the weekends we head down Tibidabo!!

    2003 or 2004?

    Looks like an 03. The 2003 was the first year when the floater pivoted at the axle. The 02.5 floater pivoted on the frame a inch above the axle. Looks sweeeeet no matter the year.

    Thanks my friend...

    She was built in late 02... But you're right, she's an 03 model. I just try to maintain a little humility...(smile)

    Good for resale that its a 03. Im just a FLY junkie and know almost every change they made every few months.

    How hard is it to polish and how much did it cost ya?

    My 2003 FXR...I had (have) it for sale but I think I'm going to hold onto her for another season Just love this bike too much! Thinking I'll swap out forks, maybe try a Pike or AM1...the 20mm axle would be a nice upgrade. And maybe get a ti spring for it just to freshen things up...

    Smile fork & Ti spring

    I had an 03 zoke z1 FR just like yours before switching to a 05 manitou firefly Ti. The manitou wasn't plush in the begining - more sticky than plush. After about 10 rides it started to loosen up and soked up everything. SPV evolve works great under pedal power and is great complement to rear curnutt shock. The manitou doesn't raise the head angle because the drop outs are placed higher. The Ti rear spring for curnutt is a must have - there is a big difference between the two. All I can say is just -buy it- you'll see when it's installed. If you're interested on Ti spring weights - write back and I'll lead you towards the right direction.

    the ti spring shouldn't change the way it rides, correct? just overall bike weight?

    If I remembered correctly, the steel spring weighed in at 13.8 oz. and the Ti weighed in at around 6 oz. about 1/2 lb. off. I had scale sitting there so i weighed it. I also got one spring weight lighter just to see what would happen. The ride felt more plush because of the reduced spring weight - to compensate for lighter wieght I added more air (80-90psi) just under the 100psi limit. Ride was plush with no bob and soaked all the little bumps. Preloaded the spring with 2-3 turns....I am a happy guy.

    nice FG! I'm gonna have to try the ti spring for sure. I've got a set of 2.35 high rollers too...does that rear one fit OK on yours? I've been running WTB's but I'm gonna throw on the Maxxis for some more DH-style duty next week I think .

    rear tire..

    My rear 2.35 Maxxis fit snug, probably nothing else bigger. I have Maxxis Minions super tacky for the front - that's been working awesome. You won't regret the Ti spring - I use my old steel spring as a pencil holder

    Nice bike FoesGuy, I really like the blood red color, mine's red too . Your pic shows off the color well.

    I have an '04 and the reality is I can't run a tire any bigger than a 2.35 either, a larger tire would fit but you would have to run a single chainring setup cause the chain will rub on a tire larger than a 2.35 while in the granny due to the 68mm shell. I guess there are ways around the problem if you don't mind sacrificing chainline but for me the drivetrain works so well that I prefer going with a 2.35, plus thats big enough anyways for me.
