    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!

    Chris.
