Or anyone else with some current product knowledge... I'm wondering what the real differences are in frame dimensions between Fury and Ruckus. It's hard to tell from geo tables because the build specs are so different, but now that XX1 is trickling out it's got me wondering... I love my Ruckus for backcountry riding with a jury-rigged front derailleur setup, and now the wide-ratio one-by system has opened the door for dumping the extra rigging without sacrificing the all-day usability. But it's also got me thinking that building up a Fury to take its place may be worth looking into. I saw one on eBay a while ago with a RockShox Pike on it - 200mm travel rear with a 145mm fork? Maybe a bit extreme but interesting...
So I'm wondering how the ST & HA would work out, compared to my Ruckus, if I were to swap the same 180mm travel Totem to a Fury frame? If I were to run the same seat post height for climbing could I expect the same 'effective' SA and TT length? And what about BB height with the 180 fork, could I expect that to be roughly similar to the Ruckus?
I would assume that since the iD hardware (BB pivot, etc) look identical that the Fury should pedal about the same as the Ruckus under load in a 32f/42r gear combo. I'm sure some suspension tuning may be necessary to keep from sinking 5-6" into the travel on steep climbs. But like I've found on the Ruckus, all that sag should make for amazing traction, assuming you can get your body into a position where you can lay down power.
Fury frame with CCDB Air, Totem Solo Air DH, XX1/XO Trail brakes, and a 6" drop Reverb... maybe throw in some carbon wheels and single ply 2.35-2.5" tires? Hmmm... off the top of my head I'd think that would make for a mid-30lb, 180-200mm travel, durable carbon play bike.
Unless, of course, there may be a carbon Sanction already in the works???
Just a thought... so, anyone currently pedaling a Fury uphill?
