    NEW 2008 FXR 2:1 VS Fox Vanilla 32 RLC

    What do You think of put in a Fox Vanilla 32 RLC into new 08 Foes FXR 2:1.
    The reason: I want to save some weight (36 weights about 1lbs more) and money (i have my old 07 Vanilla on stock)

    Also have problems finding the right size.
    I rode the last Years Santa Cruz Heckler, size "L" (fits me perfect)
    I`m about 5' 11'" with short legs and iseam 32"
    What Du you also think

    You might need a med. with that short of inseam. Even though it says you can use that fork, Brent told me he rec. the 36 for the 08 fxr. My bike should be done next week, built with a36 talas and comes in at 28 lbs.

    I tried posting pics of the frame but didn't have any luck.Industry nine says the wheels will be here next week, so the day after that I can try again to post pics of the build.

    Fxr Man, Try Again, Please

    Post the pics of your FXR 08 frame, it is easy, just you have to change the size of the pictures (to a small size) and then post it.
    I am anxious to see that frame.
    Thank you.

    I am wondering if it is really going to come in at 28 pounds. My one concern with the FXR is whether I could build it sub 30. If it is really 28, then I am going to pull the trigger.

    I have done all the math and if everything comes in at their claimed weight, I should have it in around 28 to 28 and one half lbs. As soon as it is built I will weigh it at the bike shop and post pics and its actual weight.
