    The Ultimate IBIS Enduro setup thread!

    I know I know we have a Ripley setup, HD, Mojo setup thread.

    This is a brung what you run thread, its not about model, wheel size, hip size etc.

    Its about what you ride in Enduro's and how you've set it up for Enduro racing and riding, what ever Enduro means for you.

    I think it will be interesting to "mind meld" all the Ibis riders bikes that are used for Enduro and how they are setup.

    I see this as a evolving thread as well so as you and or your bike evolves update away, it might be a shock, fork or even a setting change or tires you've found best etc, races you've done and what you found works and didn't or how much you enjoyed it!

    Go wild let go, bring that Enduro monster out to play!

    Just one request, please don't turn it into a flame fest of wheels who's got the biggest, its not about that other threads can debate wheel size. What frame to ride, how ya hold ya tongue, which side it hangs to etc
    cheers!


    Enjoy have fun, post what you brung!

    Last of the Mohican HDs

    160 travel fnr
    Fork - Float 34 in pic swap out for Vengeance HLR 160 travel pos and looking fwd to being back on a 20mm hub.

    Tires - whatever suits the course, pretty much a Maxxis man
    Ardents, Larsens, HR2s Minions, cut down Wetsreams and Swampthings

    Got another Enduro in 5 Weeks, cant wait to hit this in 160mode, just hope our courses are tougher than last time, which were long but a XC fest really not Enduro.

    Pedals - Mallet DH
    Stem - 40mm Chromag
    Bar - 760mm Chromag 20mm rise
    Grips - Liking these new Eastons

    Heres my weapon as it stands currently,hurry up Vengeance the Fox is not keeping pace with the Vector!

    Cheers Stripes, now just have to wait for the Ibesians to crank it up

    Your machine is definitely worthy! as is any Ibis, so crank it up when that
    upgrade takes place, and get an Enduro done too

    Here is how my bike morphed along with my riding. First off this is where I came from. There is Ibis content here since you can see my HD lurking in the background. It was a major change for me all around. 140->160, rigid post->dropper, 32->36, notice the stem length...



    And my HD as it was originally built. Triple ring up front, 560 gram tires, 711 bars and I was really proud it was 26 lbs.



    Here you see the bike beginning to morph. Notice the single ring setup, 750 bars, piggy back rear shock, 750 gm tires etc. There was one iteration that I had on for a short time that was an XTR double.



    And my current setup at 28 lbs. XX1, 170 fork with RC2DH damper, etc. Tires are an HD up front with a Conti 2.2 MK Protection on the rear. My perfect race bike, at least for now....

    Thats awesome SP exactly what I was hoping for. New you'd come through, nice Porsche too, I like that the Intense was same colour? intended?

    Nice progression too, Ive long been a short stem wide bar man, it was hard about 10years ago as not many wide bars by todays stds or short stems suitable for what we ride today, you've definitely got the HD dialled up now, very nice.

    I used to rock up to a XC race in the 90s on an Azionic DH bar high rise haha everyone would laugh until the downhills lol. Before Thomson the Kore Elite stems were the stem to own 15mm rise 110mm that was short mid 90s thank gawd times have changed, still got that stem too, lol, 1.5 steerer clamp, Kore didn't innovate enough to maintain that high end factor unfortunately, still make good stuff, but not the finish of many others like Thomson, Chromag, Point One etc.

    Shes a riper SP really like ya current setup, though maybe a Pike in your future!
    That white HD looks sweet beside the VitaminP too

    Here is the spec list. I figure that you all know what a white HD looks like so please forgive the lack of images (plus I'm not entirely sure about posting them.... ).

    I've including Graves style pressures - this will of course make me 14% faster simply by listing them.......and give me bigger calves. I thought it would be useful to see the specs of the other riders as I'm interested to know how others run their suspension, tyres etc relative to weights.

    The trails around Sydney tend to be loose fine gravel surfaces on hardpack. Loam is more precious than platinum here

    Rider - 6'4, 125kg RTR.
    XL Frame.
    Fox 180 RC2 Float (spaced down to 160mm), 110PSI
    Cane Creek DB Air - running 16mm sag.
    Easton Havoc Carbon bars, 35mm diameter (uncut at 800mm).
    ODI Ruffian lock ons.

    I've been testing my HD 170/160 set up against my new ripley with 140/120.. It's sad to say but every enduro segment time has been destroyed with my ripley... notice the enduro segments ridden the first time with my ripley..

    Hard to tell what kind of trails those are with Strava maps. Without seeing those trails, I can say every wheel size has it's pros and cons on any given trail. While folks have a tendency to praise the virtues of what they own. Just like suspension travel, some trails will be better suited for 29" wheels, some for 27.5, and some for 26". That's just a technical reality.

    Bottom line is if you already own a nice bike now, is it worth switching over $$$$ for the type of trails YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL RIDE ON? This is a personal decision which only you, the individual, can make.

    No amount of chest thumping from others will help the individual making that decision with their hard earned (or not so hard earned) $$$.

    No matter what, those are some great times on Strava. I would love to see some pics of the trails as well. This should give you an idea of what we see around here. These are typical for Socal.





    Throw is some much higher speed chunk and a few drop features and it is really nice to have a 160 bike. Looking at the pics I really need to go shoot some pics of the better trails out here!

    Was not intended at all. Bought the Porsche on a whim and loved every second of it, already had the Intense. Still bummed I sold the Porsche last year. Talking about the Pike, yes there is one in my future. I am thinking of ordering the 275 160 version so it is the same length as my 170 Lyrik. I really like the slacker HA with the longer fork and a little extra gap from the arch to the tire won't hurt anything. It also future proofs my fork for a while!

    I like the idea of setup pressures as well. Here are mine with a 200 lb geared up rider on board;

    Lyrik RC2DH 170 47 PSI
    Pushed Monarch Plus RC3 150 PSI
    Hans Dampf Front 2.35 22 PSI
    Mountain King Protection 2.2 28 PSI

    Yes, I run my bike SUPER plush, but a lot of my riding buddies are running the same setup/pressures now too.

    See the mtb gods had spoken and gave u a Porsche to match then ya sold it, dam Im regretting it, done that a few times bud, always kick myself, especially if I know Ill never get that again or that particular one bummer

    Oh good plan, what about the offset though, remember ha can just swap out the lowers too, way cheaper.

    Lyrik RC2DH 170 47 PSI
    Pushed Monarch Plus RC3 150 PSI

    Mountain King Protection 2.2 28 PSI

    Yes, I run my bike SUPER plush, but a lot of my riding buddies are running the same setup/pressures now too.
    Dam they are some nice plush numbers, esp fork, 22psi upfront is that UST?

    Nice, yeah I like it plush off the top 5-10% for grip, but Ill take ride height over plush if it comes to it, sort of how I run the Float, its doing a pretty good job just sometimes get caught on a root or off camber turn with rocks for lack of grip, but we have good dirt so pretty lucky, elsewhere like where u guys ride, may need a plusher setup

    I'm setting up for my first enduro race in october. Right now my set up is:

    Frame: Mojo SL medium
    Fork: stock X fusion 140 mm
    Shock: stock Fox RP2 but will eventually upgrade to monarch plus
    Stem: Pro 50mm 0 rise
    Drivetrain: SLX 3x10 w/XT rear derailleur (stock)
    Wheels: Crossmax ST (love them!)
    Tires: Continentals 2.2
    Pedals: Kore flat pedals
    Brakes: Avid Elixir 1 (stock, will be next upgrade after shock and dropper post)

    The course will be based in a XC event so I'm confident with 140mm and 2.20 tires as I assume it will reward pedalling.

    Yep, UST and the Eastons run SUPER tight so there is no chance of blowing a bead. It is so tight that I have had to cut two tires off with tin snips!

    The problem I had with the Fox was running enough pressure to avoid brake dive resulted in only getting about 120 mm of travel.

    Must give UST another chance, was big on it from 98- 2005 then running bigger tires min 2.35 didn't see any real advantage, plus I went from muds to drys every 5 minutes, but the new Maxxis HR2 in TR casing and 2.3 sizing is only 800grams and very tempting.
    Must see if I can get a Larsen 2.35 UST as well for the rear still my fav rear tire,

    Interesting with my Fox 34 @ 100psi Im still getting full travel, when I had it @150 and also @160mm travel, also to keep the fork up in its travel!

    I just lose that softness off the top which is killing me on roots, I had a major front wheel deflection on a fast section tonight, lucky a bank leading into a corner after that root was they're as I turned it into a berm last moment and saved it lol.

    Sweet, don't rule out a XF O2X either!

    Just a suggestion possibly look at running the middle ring only dropping the granny and big ring and FD, run ya 32t or go to a narrow wide34t front ring in the middle pos on your cranks if 4 bolt bcd, and if you have a 10spd drivetrain, plus add a MRP chainguide from the Ibis site.

    Id do this on any bike myself, including the Ripley especially if not using a narrow wide tooth front ring and clutch rear d, this will really help with reliability and make for a more efficient transmission for Enduro, worth a look anyways if you're not already thinking about it, post a pic when ha get a chance too

    I would not worry about running true UST. Tubeless ready variations are fine. That is the EXACT problem I had with Fox. The low speed sensitivity is abysmal when you have enough air. When you mess with the dampers once they are removed from the forks you realize how much more low speed damping Fox runs even at the fastest setting. I think this is the real issue with the first iteration of the 34. They modified the air spring which allows it to get full travel, but there is still a low speed damping issue that require someone like Push to fix.

    not so sure it's "enduro" ....

    ... since I've never raced one, unless Downieville Classic counts. Bike rips, and still capable enough on the ups to leave enough gas in the tank for the downs.

    Xfusion 02 RCX, Revelation 150mm, XT 1x10 drivetrain & brakes, LB carbon + Hope hoops, Neomotos tubeless, Reverb, Haven stem + SixC bars. 28lbs on the nose for an XL. Not too shabby.

    The pro forks are only the same on the outside anyway.

    Sold my 34, and still ahead on a Vengence cost wise though rebuild of 20mm hub and Enve adds a bit, but it dosent need Push, and better still than a Pushed 34 I reckon, not proven, but stoked with XF on the HD, I couldnt ask for more, fully self serviceable, and self tuneable and performance to date is all and more.

    Im really liking the new upside down Revell, but the Venegence will stay and may look at DVO Diamond (26" option) next year or Revell (27.5" & 29" minus only but 20mm tick) as a pure Enduro option, will swap out for events only, but for the first time I wont be getting rid of either the Ven/Vector, may add an O2X though cant see why at this stage, I think its hurt ManuelD, his results seem to have gone backwards on the smaller fork (Slant) purely specculation while Valentina seems to still be on a Vengence and just won a SuperEnduro in Italy while Manuel got a cut tire and had to retire. Both riding a reverse VP HD look 27.5 as well. Cant wait to see them on this fork though, sure Xf must be working on a pure Enduro shock as well?

    Ah not worried as such trust Maxxis tires anyway, more a case of convienance, but I seem to have settled on tire combo for the last few seasons, just a case lf finding a few Larsens in TR or Lust, my prefered Larsen is acutally a wire bead just feels better, so I may ghetto tubless it on the rear, super reliable and good enough for Gravesy as well, and nab a couple of HR2s 2.3 TRs for the front and rear if gets nar! Need to track down some 2.35 Swampthings as well super tacky, love that tire probably my all time fav,wet or super loose dry esp on the front, fast grils like a moto tire, even the name is sic lol!

    That's what I'm wondering, do I sell the 34 or do I keep it and have it PUSH'd?

    The 36 I had done by them was amazing. Not sure I want to deal with selling/buying another fork when my confidence in their work is quite high. They've done 3-4 different parts for me and all have been great, and I've already got the 34 in hand...

    Hardcore 1st World Problems. Sorry to fork this thread Mav...

    ps: that upside down XF fork better ride like a dream because holy god, it's hard on the eyes.

    Budgie, Dville was one of the ORIGINAL enduro events! Counts in every way shape and form.

    Benja I think they want people to notice it on the trail! BTW I owe you a PM.

    You guys have probably already tried this? My 2012 Fox 36 160 rlc fit had the same issue. If I ran soft for plush suspension it would brake dive/use all of travel way to easy. Pump it up to prevent the diving and it would become harsh. What I did to improve this was to use 7wt oil in lowers instead of fox recommended 10wt and also use 10cc of instead of 5cc float fluid to air spring to make more progressive. I would also remove the lowers and grease bushings/wiper seals every 20 hours of use.
    the fox felt much ,but still didn't match the plushness of my pushed monarch plus. I was able to run low psi and not get brake dive and still use all of travel when I needed it to save me. I sold the fork to a friend who had an older 36 160 vanilla and he says its very comparable in feel.
    Im building a 26" 160 HDr, finally got my last part yesterday(works components angleset). I was mixed between a pike 160 or fox 160. I ended up going for the 2014 fox 36 rc2 160. I just couldn't get myself to feel good about pikes 15mm axle, Oh well. As long as the 2014 rc2 feels better than my old 2012 rlc fit Ill be happy.
    Ill post pictures of it here once I build it and get some dirt on it!

    Well I'm not sure of going 1x10 since this bike is also for long trips and mountains in mexico get STEEEP. I'm more inclined to go 2x10 and there is also the MRP guide for 2x10.

    However I guess I con just try it removing the chainrings without buying anything yet.

    I will upload the pics as soon as I can.

    Agree with SP on Deville definitely counts!

    As does anything Enduro in this thread so fork away!

    Push is not really an option for me, outside US too hard.

    My 34 will be sweet at the lower air pressures as I did get a pro tune plus some fluid in the cartridge side so it is more progressive, but when you ride hard and need the spring rate I do to keep the fork high resist diving etc I just lose small bump compliance so its not a holy grail fix for heavier faster riders, if it was like the Pike or XF then Id probably be running around 85psi instead of 100psi and getting the top end, no diving and maintain proper ride height while riding, not much to ask in 2013 really.

    As for the colour yeah Gold-member is too much for me too!

    Looks awesome in black and Id love it in white, if in white sing me up, Ill be a Guinea pig yes please! Love the HLR cartridge!

    However I guess I con just try it removing the chainrings without buying anything yet.

    I will upload the pics as soon as I can.
    Beauty is ya keep ya 3x dt and swap it back when not doing an Enduro, apart from the FD not a major jobby, settings all remain, no fuggling around on the seat-tube as its fixed, sweet!

    But all good if sounds too much, at-least if not already run a clutch rear d!

    IBIS Mojo SL-R
    Drive Train – 1x10 (Shimano SLX triple reduced to a single) w/ SRAM XO rear derailleur
    Brakes – Shimano XT w/ 180mm front & 160mm rear
    Front Fork – 140mm Rockshox Revelation
    Rear Shock – 140mm X-fusion O2
    Handlebars – Easton Mavoc Carbon 750mm
    Headset – Spike 35mm
    Seatpost – Crank Brothers Joplin
    Wheels – Easton EA90 XC 26"
    Tires – Kenda Nevgal (2.5") front / Geax Sugaro (2.5") rear - (both running tubeless)

    I showed up in Moab with two bikes. The one above and a Santa Cruz Nomad I have built up for FR/DH more than AM. (180mm Van RC2 fork + 160mm DHX4 coil shock + Deemax Wheels + Maxxis DHF/R tires). I went with the Ibis after my practice run. Good thing too. Their was a lot of pedaling and that would have sucked on the Nomad. For more downhill, the Nomad would have been great but for the BME Moab, Ibis was the right call.

    The Ultimate IBIS Enduro setup thread!-img-20130927-00003.jpg

    this is how I ride it day-in day-out. My only swap for the Enduro race I ran at Killington this past August was a 2.3 DH-casing High Roller on the rear wheel.

    It's a 2013 Mojo HD, medium, 26"
    bars: Easton Haven
    grips: Easton 33mm (I really like em)
    Stem: Thomson 50mm
    Fork: Pike RC3
    Shock: Push'd Monarch RC3
    Front wheel: King hub, WTB i23, was a Hand Dampf, now a 2.4 Mountain King ProTection
    Rear wheel: King hub, 11-36 XT cassette, Flow EX, now on 2.4 Mountain King ProTection
    Rear Derailleur: had a Zee, but killed it on stage one, now on an SLX SG
    Chain: KMC
    Crankset: Race Face SixC, 32t WolfTooth (NW), Straitline bashguard
    Seatpost: KS LEV

    I like to go fast downhill on my local trails, but given that I've been riding them for so long, I kinda know all the lines. It's a little like cheating. I knew the bike was fast and amazing, but I was seriously impressed by its composure on Killington's double black trails during the race. On the fast and chunky straight-aways it was like the bike settled down and came into its own. It was calm and composed. On fadeaway corners, through chunder and even in the air she continues to impress me, even after more than a year on her.

    The only trouble I have is anytime I get really rowdy, like airing into rock gardens and landing sideways off booters, I keep blowing tires off rims, and that leads to dead tires and 50% of the time, dead rims. Kinda expensive. The DH casing tire helped a lot during the race, and didn't add that much weight. It's comes in around 1050g if I remember correctly. I love the idea of carbon rims, but given my habit of going through a rim a year on the back wheel, I think I'll wait a little more. I really like the sound of Mavic's new EN821. I may give it a go as my next rear rim, even if it's a bit narrower than the Flow EX.

    I also feel the SS rear derailleur was better than the SG. Snappier, and a little more tolerant of incorrect setup (or in my case, of being bent out of shape on stage 1 but still doing the job on the remaining 4 stages).
    continuous growth is the strategy of a cancer cell.

    It sounds like you ride a lot harder than me. But have you heard of the light cycles carbon rims. New 26er 33mm wide enduro MTB all mountain downhill carbon rim tubeless compatible Light-Bicycle
    The 29er size hasn't let me down and I just purchased the 650B for my HD. The price isn't too bad that it would be a total loss if it broke. Also you can request a heavier built rim for downhill use.

    I found out the hard way that the HD frame is only designed around a long cage rear derailleur. It annihilated my beloved medium can that I had.

    Overall nice build. I've ridden Killington a few times. Love it.

    I have thought of them, but I'm weary of quality issues. DH rim sounds about right, but it's no lighter than Stans Flow EX, so why bother I guess...

    I'm curious why you think that? I rode my Zee, which is a short cage, for over a year. Only reason it died is because I smashed it on some rocks on a DH run... you just need to pay attention to chain length.

    New question here. Where's the MAVERICK?

    ...am I the only one wondering where the hell Maverick has run off to?

    Mav, you better be riding that HD! I miss your awesome World of Enduro posts!

    Seriously, I've learned more about enduro racing from your enthusiasm then anywhere else...

    Sic guys, great work

    I let a friend recently ride my HD with XF vector rear, for a ride, she
    usually rides a gen2 Nomad, she went and put an order in on an HDR 26" 160mm Ibis build, LBS swapped out tires and stem for a 50mm Ardent EXOs 2.4fr 2.25 rear, Reverse VP, absolutely stunning X01 groupset, quite impressed by the Ibis components in person, be interesting to see how hubs stand up over time but look good.

    The Black X01 cassette and chain ring look sic, only thing would have been nice would have been a Float X over the std CTD float.

    Be interesting to see how she finds it after riding on my XF Vector.

    Just installed Monarch Plus. It feels great and much better paired to the X-Fusion fork than the old Fox RPL.

    Here are the pics promised a while ago









    My first enduro will be this saturday, will see how it races!

    It was super fun! I finished 17th out of 24 in the advanced category, with a time of 18:11, while the first place was around 13:30.
    The last stage was raced on the local DH course which was very techy. I wasn't really prepared for that, I crashed and dismounted several times and lost 2 minutes to the fast guys in a 3 minute stage, otherwise I would have finished much closer to the podium.

    So the SL seems to be under represented in this thread. Being on the hunt for a HD or HDR frame I kinda understand. Thought I would post a recent glam shot and requisite fuzzy action shot.
