    Can anyone recommend a store to order a replace derailleur hanger for a 2010 Sensor? I broke mine yesterday on a ride and I dont think any of the local shops carry them. Thanks!

    I got my spare from ebay.If you are near Escondido Ca. I can loan you my spare if that will help.Also I am using the 4jeri derrailleur guard which really helps keep from breaking that short axle on the derrailleur mount

    I got mine from Performance Bike, where I bought the bike.

    I'm renting a Sensor 29r tomorrow while I am out of town in Utah.
    I cant wait to see how the Sensor compares to my Force and if like to wagon wheels. I have always had some remorse for not getting the Sensor, but I am really starting to like how I have setup my Force.

    Do you have a build/parts list? You have a 2.0 right? I'm trying to get my 2010 Sensor 3.0 down to around 26 lbs. I think I can do it with bars/grips/post/wheels/ust tires

    Yes, I did!
    I just finished my sensor with a pike 426 Solo Air.
    Still climbs great and is much more fun on downhills. Haven't taken any pictures yet, just one before I built it up.

    Are all the Sensor frames the same? Is the weight the same or are these white frames lighter with different tubing? I just picked up a 2011 Sensor 3.0 from Performance, I have only ridden it once at the bike park but really liked it. I am looking forward to getting back up there this week.

    Yes they are all the same. One of best things about GT

    So how much higher can you go in front travel & how does it affect the overall handling? I am thinking of putting a stiffer plusher front fork on my Sensor 3.0 & would appreciate the slacker HA when I ride the chair lifts. What's the downsides to putting something like a Rockshox Domain at 160mm of travel at the ski hill then back down to 130mm on my typical XC rides?

    I ride my sensor with a 140mm Pike 456 Air.
    The longer Fork slackens the head angle and rises the bottom bracket.
    When descending I like the handling very much, when going up I realize that I sit pretty much backwards. Climbing Abilities are still better than on my sanction with a MZ 55 RC3ti.
    I wouldn't want more than 140 mm on the front with my sensor, because it starts to feel imbalanced. I think 130mm are the best choice for the bike, but 140 is also OK!

    Here's my Sensor 9r in it's proper setting: dirty as hell after a 26-mile ride.

    I tried my Sensor 1.0 with the DT Swiss XMC130 forks on very steep rocky trails and climbs perfect. No backwards feeling. As said, I believe 120-130mm is the best travel for this frame. More than that and it starts feeling unbalanced.
    If you want more travel it's better to get a Force.

    Thank you.
    Yes it's a nice place just a mile away from my home in the town I live, but almost everywhere around the island I live is a joy to ride. It's a Greek island.

    Of course. Bare frame size medium without headset or rear shock but with all shock bolts and shock bushings and rear derraileur hanger (as pictured) was 2753g on my digital scales. This digital scales has 1g step and weighs from 0-5kg and is very accurate. I guess 2753g is 6,064lb.

    Thx mipi, that would make around 3,050 gr. including shock, about the same as my ano Heckler I'm looking to replace.

    The RockShox Monarch 4.2 I installed weighed just a bit over 200g so overall weight with shock was just below 3.0kg .

    Thanks for the info, mipi
    I have the same frame size, but had no chance to weight a frame alone or even complete bike.
    Well, 2753g without shock is not lightweight, of course. I suspected frame is rather heavy. But it rides just as good as my light hardtail, and just cause i can forgive a lot
