    Colour is amazing. Is it custom by Foes or you repainted the frame yourself?

    You've put a crappy Deore rear derailleur on a Foes?

    Not sure why Deore is crappy. I have been using LX shifters and front der. They work too.

    I haven't had the time to put my new X-9 der and shifters on my bike yet. Always changing something.

    Every component on my bike is chosen because of function — ideally DH strong but XC weight, in other words, nothing to compromise strength and durability. My custom wheels are a good example of this, proven DH strength and are around 1850 grams with 12mm axle. The Hope Pro II SS rear hub is 6 speed only. My XT "Shadow" style der would only work with a highest gear of 26; so I used this for awhile but wanted a high gear of 34 for climbing. I needed an older style der and I had a deore hanging around. It works OK but I'm looking at improving shifting and control with the SRAM stuff.

    Cheers

    Great rider!
    Gurtentrail at Biel/Bienne in Switzerland. Year long open close to the city and there is the funacular to climb up.
    http://www.trailnet.ch/index.php?lan...D9%26lang%3Dfr
    You were there few days ago isn't?
    I can't believe that!
    I was planning to ride Gurtentrail mid to end of March. The trip is postponed to end of April.
    Then the other trail might be open too. Bienne Trail: longer and more technical too.
    After that Monte Tamaro near lugano for the European IXS Cup.
    Check the FOES Mono 2.1 white to hit your local trail soon!
    That's funny!

    That is a great bike. The ano finish was bomber. Is that a 2003? I hope you are keeping it. That bike still holds its own against many of todays contenders.

    Oh, yes it's a keeper. I'm looking to add another to my small fleet and this bike will become the backup...but not forgotten. Yes It's an '03 and has held up 8yrs of all the abuse I can through at it from xc to Mammoth. The ano finish holds up real well but to clean it takes some elbow grease compared to the powder coating.

    My Zig-Zag! This bike is SO MUCH FUN!

    This is my oldest bike that I have and I actually still ride. Its a 32lb beast, but floats around corners and over jumps. Im Grinning from ear to ear every time I ride it. I've considered selling it, but no one has made me the right offer to want to part with it.

    This is a Large. I forgot to weigh the frame before building. But it's 31.7lbs as it sits in the pic (pedal'less).
    Finally got it into some dirt the other day... which required a long drive south (it's been all snow and ice up here). The bike is perfect.
    I've had a Weasel, 2 FXR's, a DHS Tube, 2 Mono's, and an XCT. This Shaver is the perfect combination of them all.
    It pedals fine, and it drops smooth. I believe, it's perfect.

    man that bike looks tough. it's total raw, totally stripped back, like the essence of mtb, real agricultural beast. looks like it means business too, got a real sense of purpose about it, like it's ready to rock some serious sh!t... bring it on!

    my 5" 06 fxr's still going strong, got the curnutt serviced in new zealand the other day. gotta have my triple chainring though. been smoking cigers every day lately, not just when drinking. makes me spew my lungs out when climbing. gettin' old, hehe.

    what's the dhx-air like with the single pivot?

    Thanks. That's quite a compliment. The DHX Air works great on the FXR. It does bob a bit more, but really not that bad compared to other bikes. It's much more supple on high speed hits and I am able to use the travel better.

    Who me? Yah, it's custom. Longer TT than stock. It's basically an XL.

    Hey All, I'm a newbie here who's been riding around on an old Foes LTS-18 for the past decade+. It's a beautiful ride, and kind of a strange set up (enduro with Aerospoke wheels), but still somewhat of an exotic... in an old-school sort of way. Hmm... trying to post a pic of my ride, but the system says I'm too much of a newbie to load a picture or include a link... guess I'll repost when I'm a little more 'seasoned'. (I threw the pic in my 'gallery' for now)

    Does it ride better than the old FOES Mono 2:1 ... I tested it last weekend on a DH Track and was shocked how worse the FOES fork worked and the rear suspension was working well, but the bike sounds like a coke tin. I was happy to ride my Tollwut Stonedigger with fox40 later again.

    Unlike a Foes, that (expensive looking) Tollwut Stonedigger is going to break somewhere around all those little cut-out machined bits. I can't tell you when, but it's gonna go el snappo at some stage, I promise you. That kind of inherent design flaw comes from a lack of practical experience. Foes has led the way in from mtb design, manufacture, and fabrication techniques over the last 20 years. Compare the robust, and generally overbuilt (phat) design of a Foes, any and all of them, to the aenemic and skeletal design of the Tollwut Stonedigger, there's simply no comparison dude.

    I am sure they did that way. But that Curnutt Fork didn't work. I had to open the valve because it started to get really hard, then I checked that the rebound and the compression were totally screwed open. The fork was not fast enough on the track and it was still to much rebound, to slow. I lost speed in very rough parts of the track. The rear Damper was working because it was tuned by Balfa but the linkage was worn out or the damper had a jump between pull and push. Anyway the chain jumped of with a chain guard and the bike sounded like a tin. The rear suspension was far enough, you allways know there is more... but it didn't really stick to the ground. The tollwut has minimized the rearwheel weight and it is free from drivetrain or braking influences. The rear is faster working than any other bike, because usuall rearwheels have a bigger inertia.

    I am sorry to tell you that you will be wrong. The Stonedigga was developed by an ex. Dual and DH Racer who is today chief constructing engineer of a mechanical engineering company in Germany. The welder of that bike used to weld for a big Bike company back in the days and build by his own like 2001 the Tollwut Ladyshapa with which bike Jens Böttner won 2004 the german DH series. The tollwut has double diagonal grooving bearings ( I don't know if you call it like this in in english). There is no friction in the rear performance.

    I used to race DH and I am my self engineer at a german sportcar manufactor, studied at one of the most famous tech. universities and allready got a lot experience in chassis dynamics and as a testdriver. I am over the 30s now, so you see, not another semi-literate rich kid. It is nice, that you deleted that scentence, that your level of arguments has been very low by itself. Please try to keep the level high in the web.

    I hope you will find the the chance to compare the bikes once.
    Than you will know, that these are bikes in the same prize category, but one is a chassis of the past and one is of the future. And don't forget the gearbox and the low center of gravity.

    This Tollwut looks to be a unique whip. It does appear to need alot of adjustment time though. I don't knock your bike Gearbox Rider, it's just these frames with tube-configurations outside of rigid-frame design (two triangles) never react in a predictable way. Inception is my guess. Me -- I like my bikes to be able to gobble up all the gnar and baby-heads that come our way but I also need to have Hardtail-feel to the bike. Some think it's only under the pedals.

    Thats what you think, but in reality I didn't have to adjust anythink since nearly 2 years, I am riding the Evo3. The single thing was fasten the Race Face Bottom Bracket once and after a hard crash to unscrew the fox40 and fasten it again. the fork once got new sealings. that was it. the was just cleaned and a little oil on the chain and suspension. It is still in mode after buying it. and ist has seen Morzine and several bike parks.

    I never had so less work with a bike than with this one. The reason is, you have no more problems with the chains and the shifting like usual bikes. it is all very compact. So it rides dirty like clean, because everything is sealed. How can tell this of his bike, maybe Zerode riders can do. But I am sure no one else. Because Zerode and Tollwut are the only gearbox bikes under 20 kg that function.

    Love your FXR! Thanks for posting, I've been searching pictures of FXRs for different color combinations of forks and rims to black frames..I have a gray fork (yuck) right now and white rims. I was thinking of either white or black fork and not sure to keep my white rims or get black ones.

    about 45 - 60 min, you can go down the former swisscup dh track and then switch to the cup du monde down to Champery...

    Here's another custom Hydro just finished last night.

    The idea was to match this Rat Rod look.

    With the Foes custom powder coat options, it came out great.

    I like it: the rock-a-billy hucker or somethin er other. Put a bike rack on that ol'e split window coupe and you'll fetch all the looks.

    Sweet.

    How do ya find the Roco? I just bought a TST air for trail riding, and a WC coil for DH, both for my VP-Free. I'm hoping the VPP has enough of a platform to enable the WC to pedal OK.
