    Just Got my Foes

    Just got an 03 Foes Fly Frame (S). I'm putting it together this week.
    Romic 8in rear
    888 RC2X VA Front w/ intergrated stem
    Juicy 7 brakes 8in Rotors
    XTR front and rear derailleurs
    D321 rims laced to Silver Hadleys front and rear
    Tompson layback seatpost.
    Race face North Shore Cranks W/ Blackspire 36 ring and Bash
    E13 DRS chain guide
    XT shifters.
    Azonic Platform Pedals

    I've been riding a Kona Stab for years so I can't wait to have 3 more inches in front and rear. The Foes has been my dream bike for awhile.
    I'll post Pics when it's together

    Heres mine, 02 DHS Mono, I haven't had much of a chance to ride it recently what with it being winter here. Great fun bike though.

    Are you going to run a chainguide? DRS? Is the 32 enough of a big ring? How is the Curnutt air?

    Weight?

    The bike weighs in at about 36lbs

    I have a 38 tooth already that I will put on it as 32 is a bit small.

    The curnutt air is a really nice shock, it feels weird when you push down on it when the bike is at standstill, but works so well when riding, real nice and easy to setup just how you like too .

    I can't run a chain device, it only has mounts for the special foes one, which in only single ring. Anyone know a way around this?

    I also have to mention how impressed I am with the Gustavs, I am a really big rider and these things stop me like nothing I have ever used before, they are amazing!

    XCT-4 Winter Ride

    I just got back from a 3 hour ride in the rare blast of winter that we are getting here in Victoria. I definitely think its time to give 'er a wash now (I bet the road salt isn't going to be too good to the raw aluminum).

    i see little representation of the 4x. it may be an older one (and it may be set up with trippe rings) but i love it so far. then again i havnt ridden it on the trail. but this thing can hold a manual and a trackstand like nobody's business. light too, somewhere around the 28.5lb mark? shock seems to blow thru its travel in the 5.7 setting. whatev, i can deal with the 5 setting until i figure out how to properly tune it (any help would be appreciated!)

    I doon't know.
    But he knows his business as a mecanical assistant for the racing team.
    He got the frame from the Canadian Distributor and also a friend. So...
    The Air shock needs 2 early adjustments for the first time before riding.
    The sag and the bottom out.
    Each valve need air to a specific level.
    See the air shock manual for more information.

    The Saint cranks rule!
    Stiff and nice design.
    The new derailleur is also awesome.
    Long time I saw a red steel spring.
    Where do you ride? I mean what kind of trails? Up and down the mountains or soft downhill not technical trails?

    Yes, I need it stiff
    The bike is used for my favorite trails around my hometown,
    uphill, downhill (funny but not extreme) and really nice trails

    Anther one just finished building it few minutes ago.
    24 inches rear wheel for this kid. 26 inches in front but will change for also a 24''
    I put old Foes mud guards onr the old Manitou fork. Better looking and harder.
    This one for sale to a young cousin. He will ride hard!
    It's the perfect tool for the job.
    Most important extreme or cruising it's to have fun!

    Another red FXR. Build as follows:

    2009 red medium FXR with Curnutt Air
    2009 Fox 36 Float R
    Chris King headset
    Avid Elixir CR brake set (185mm rotors)
    DT Swiss RWS 10mm bolt on rear axle

    Wheels:
    Hope Pro 2 hubs, 32 spoke, 20mm front, 10mm rear
    Mavic X819 UST rims
    DT Swiss Comp double butted spokes
    brass nipples
    Kenda Nevegal 2.35 UST tires

    Drivetrain:
    XT M770 front derailleur
    XT M770 crank set
    XTR M952 shifters
    XTR M952 rear cassette 12-34
    XTR M952 rear derailleur
    SRAM 971 chain

    WTB Pure V Team saddle
    Thomson Elite X4 100mm 0 rise stem
    Thomson Elite 367mm seatpost
    Easton Monkeylite DH Carbon handlebars
    ODI Ruffian Lock-On grips
    Time ATAC Carbon pedals

    Weighs in at 31.5 pounds.

    I'm running 65 PSI all around in both Curnutt chambers and the Float R. Three turns counter-clockwise out on the Curnutt dial. I weigh 160 pounds and stand 5' 10".

    I've already swapped the lay back post for a straight post, and am contemplating a much narrower Rocket V saddle over the Pure V I have now. Rear brake line needs trimming (waiting on the bleed kit fittings). This is my first pair of Ruffian grips, and they are thin. I may look for something a little thicker.

    Overall it's a little heavy, but the bike hides it very well. It doesn't bother me at all so I don't notice it. The bike climbs steep hills like it's possessed and has amazing traction. The Curnutt Air shock just plain works. It feels smooth to me and the stable platform must work because I never notice the suspension moving when I pound on the pedals. And of course it descends like you jumped out an airplane, which is why I bought it. I almost folded my Fuel 100 in half last year and finally admitted I needed a bigger bike. The bike and parts pick are meant to cover a lot of miles, be reliable and headache free, and keep up with its owner who raced DH and XC many years ago and thinks maybe he still has a few good runs in him. This should do the job nicely.

    The pictures here are right before its very first ride. It sure is a hell of a lot dirtier now!

    FXR, repaired and re-built

    Built it up again after cracking the rear triangle at the drop-out last summer. Had to wait a few months to get the new rear triangle sent over so was riding my Heckler. Was really enjoying it as the angles were great but blowing through the travel all the time. Saw the article in Dirt and thought I'd re-build and play with the front and rear shock settings to see.
    Glad I did as its ace. 77degree head angle, 30% sag on the rear. Feels short travel on the flat and like my old Bullit going downhill.

    oh yes, at my "oldschool" dhs-mono
    The big saddle is very old school!
    Already 10 years back.
    Any problem with front triangle tubes?
    Everyone has some. Broken?
    Since 2001 with DHS Mono frame no more problem.

    finally found a rear rim to match the front, changed out the LX hub for a XTR also, kinda hard to find a nice rim brake hub these days..

    06 Fxr

    I bought this frame from Piker about 18 months or more ago. Thanks mate, she's a pearler!

    06 Foes FXR 2:1 (L)
    Curnutt XTD w/400lbs Ti spring
    08 55 ETA
    Chris King headset
    X.0 triggers
    X.0 rear deraileur
    X.0 chain
    X.9 cassette
    XTR front deraileur
    Juicy 7's w/7" rotors
    XTR M960 cranks
    DX pedals
    Azonic Double Wall bars (2" rise)
    Thomson post & stem
    SDG Bel-Air RL saddle
    Hope Pro2 hubs/Sapim double butted black ano spokes/DT Swiss EX5.1D rims/Gazzalodi Dual tires

    Canablized my Heckler to build this. Used the X.0 gripshift from my old bike for the first year, but I prefer these new triggers. Pity they're thumb/thumb, Shimano's proprietry trigger/thumb system feels more natural and ergonomic. I never felt like I needed gutsier brakes on the Heckler, the Juicy 7's worked fine. The FXR is that much faster & knarlier that I'm getting Code or Saint 4-pots as soon as I can afford it.

    The photos are off my phone, so they ain't the best. Super sexy in the flesh though.

    Hello, new guy here. A shot of my 07 Foes:



    It's reasonably light as these bikes go, little under 28 lbs. I love this bike, does everything well for my XC riding style. Although, I am somewhat biased...

    Thanks!
    Took me almost 2 seasons to find out what I wanted to change, and change it.

    The handling of the DT swiss forks is awesome. Really plush out of the box, easy to set up the air spring, super stiff and really predictable on the trail. And SO light! 1,65kg for a superstiff 150mm fork...that's insane!

    But...I'm not friends with the "Launch Control" lock out system yet. It's a combined lower-the-forks-and-lock-out feature with an adjustable treshold setting, that pops the fork back into action if it hits something big enough to pass the treshold.
    The climbs that you really want to lower the forks in, are usually the climbs with most obstacles...but these always seems to pop the fork back up, if I don't set the treshold to a setting so high that I always have to manually turn it off.

    So...

    And it's easy to adjust the rebound knob without intention.

    Now that might sound like some major issues, but within a couple of hours of riding, this is something that might come up once or twice, and they're all easily solved there and then (reachable while riding).

    The handling is superior to my old Fox and RS forks, and that is what count 99,99% of the time.

    (and it looks awesome together with the red frame)

    is yours an FXR or a Fly? looks like a Fly, huh?

    i like adjustable travel forks, always been a big fan of ETA, got 08 55 ETA's on my 06 FXR. the system you described sounds overly complicated, too tricky to dial in.

    do you use the adjustable seatpost much? looks kinda heavy...

    It's an FXR
    2008 version.

    I do like adjustable forks, but performance is more important.
    The good thing about the DT Swiss, is that it's really short for a 150mm. The hight is more like a 140mm, which is way within what the FXR is built to handle without getting to slack.

    I use the seatpost all the time. Turns the FXR into a FR machine.
    It weighs 534g with the remore control, before you cut it. The bike just came down from the bike stand, and the seat post has more travel than the picture shows.

    The complete bike weighs 13,8kg (30.4lbs)

    pure bike porn.

    it needs some 'A' class cranks though; new Saint, or those phat, ano black Race Face cranks (Diablous i think).

    i also wanna know how it rides. do you think you could put on a triple chainring and adjustable travel fork and go trail riding? Ever ridden a Bullit? the Bullet feels low-slung, the wheelbase is too long (for climbing), and the forks rake-out too much to be a really great all-rounder. could you make a good trailbike outa the RS7?

    I have not ridden it yet really...there is too much snow outside here at the moment !

    @mongy: A triple chainring should work. But you have to mount an E-type front derailleur with a bottom bracket mount. There are cable guides for a second derailleur on the downtube.

    those struts under under the seat post tube are new. i doubt the hydroformed y-section of the frame would ever break regardless of that kind of reienforcment. kinda looks like an afterthought. looks as though it assists with the lateral flex of shock.

    My original FXR, bought used in '09 from Margaritaman on here, as originally built:


    Mainly XT drivetrain, Magura Thor fork, Formula K24 brakes, etc...

    A couple months ago coming back from a night bike ride, my hitch rack failed and I was left with this:


    Thule stepped up, as well as my renter's insurance to allow me to build my new '10 FXR:

    Bare frame:


    Painted Lambo green:


    And built, ready for first test ride:








    SRAM XX drivetrain, Elixer CR brakes, Lyrik Solo Air DH fork, etc.

    Still have some tuning/tweaking to do, but I love the bike so far! So much better going down, no more tiring pedalling up, though doesn't do tech-y uphill stuff as well.
