    6.6 Photo Album

    Since there are more and more 6.6 owners every day is there any chance of getting a 6.6 album post set up as a sticky like the 5.5 album? It would be great to have a compilation of 6.6's to view pics and specs. What do ya think?

    The VAN is a great fork. Not missing travel adjustment.
    I have stock spring which puts me at bottom of the spring range.
    I have pre load all off and bottom leg adjustment almost all way out. I imagine as spring breaks in I will tweak more but for moment is great. Love the coil/ coil.
    I never liked this fork on any bikes I demo'ed until the fox guys set me up on one at inter bike. They always felt harsh but I'm very happy with mine.

    ... and I thought you were just protecting the paint on your wall! Looks really nice (the bike, oh and the paint! ) am I right in saying you used to have a 5.5? How do they compare as an all rounder?

    Thanks Just J. I don't have much time on the 6point6 to give you a comparison. Here's my very brief coments on the 6point6 Ok boys (and girls?), it's time for those 6.6 reviews.. I'm still waiting for the snow to melt, although today did show some snow melting promise.

    I'm re-building up the 5point5 with LX level componets and finally got the Nixon back from Manitou again (three times is a charm, I hope! ). The brakes come in this week and will complete the bike. So I'll post a comparison in the upcoming months, if I have the time

    It's going to be a very good year.

    What reducer are you using to allow the use of the Chris King Headset? E13?

    Its works really well.

    I often had the problem of coming to a steep technical section, having to get off the bike, drop the saddle and then get back on, and getting clipped in again before the steep/technical bit was quite hard and sometimes I ended up either walking down! or having poor control due to not being clipped in.

    Hopefully this will solve all of that!

    Also, its handy to be able to drop saddle by an inch or so for singletrack bits too, where i wouldnt ordinarily stop to put saddle down, with this post I can just do it on the fly.

    Here's photo of a customer while at a former Al Queda training camp in Afghanistan. I'm pretty sure it was the only 6.6 in the country at the time. He's currently tearing up Italy on that bike.

    How do you like the Z1 on the 6.6? Is it very heavy?

    Z1 is great. very plush and smooth.. like butter. in terms of weight.. nothing out of the ordinary I don't think.

    i have a question on a fork set up:
    I am geting full travel, and after like 4-5 foot drops to ever so slight tranny on dirt, the tie i have
    on the sanction is pushed to about 4mm below the crown, so i know I am getting full travel.
    However, I'm not sure if I am bottoming out. How obvious is it when you bottom.. will there be some sort of harsh metallic clang? I did up the compression and get the same result. I was thinking of increasing the oil level, but if anything I need to lower it to get the appropriate sag (~17% sag with all my weight on the pedals, ~30% with all my weight on the bars).

    Teemu,

    Tosi makea fillari! Sweet ride, I'm digging the component selection. What did the total weight end up being?

    Thanx Sus13!

    I haven't had a chance to weight it yet. It's supposed to be around 15.5 kg. Should work quite well in Helsinki/Espoo trails.

    E2, that is one bad mamma-jamma

    i have seen a number of custom paint jobs...so far my favorite was a bishop don magic juan - inspired green is for the money, gold is for the money titus. he's a famous pimp (check out the movie american pimp) also known as the guy that's along snoop in old school.

    however, e2 just changed the name of the game....

    that's insane. i thought my girlfriend painting flowers on her cruiser was sweet. i won't tell her that she just got beat.

    Bandit 350, I'm still laughing at the "don Juan" thing, it's funny you should mention him, I was actually looking through an old issue of DUB magazine last night and there is a pic. of his Caddy in there.........he's also in an old HBO special titled Pimps Up Hoes Down. Anyway thanks for the comment. E2 eric@competitivecyclist.com

    Yes, It's an All Mountain SL I picked up at a great price when Performance bought out Supergo. I originally had a NIxon Platinu, but after 4 months of riding it still felt "sticky" and I just couldn't get it dialed in right.

    I love the SL. It's smooth and plush.

    hey mtbkrx

    try running the GD backwards, it results in a much smoother cable run.
    You'll have to purchase some 4mm cable housing and about 15 minutes of your time. But its worth it IMO. Cheers! Lookin' good!

    I noticed you're running a Cane Creek headset, has yours started to creak yet? Me and Tmoney are both running that headset, and have had nothing but creaks from them, the bearings actually move around inside the headcup, we took Tmoney's apart and discovered there was a pretty good amount of play between the bearings and the cup. Tmoney opted for an FSA after our discovery of this. Just wondering if we got a couple of jank headsets or if all of them potentially creak at some point.

    cane creaking?

    No creaking yet but thanks for the warning. I actually just replaced the lower cup with a Flush version to steepen the front a tad (running the 66sl at 170mm). Feels pretty solid. However, let me ask you this: Any creaking from yer pivots? I've had the 6.6 for a couple months now and am developing a nice creak when pedalling hard. I guess if its not one thing, it another! Ah the joy! But overall, what a ride!

    no creaking here.. I took off my shock and cycled thru the travel and everything seemed fine.

    I do get a clicking on my Z1 light though.. when I compress, and release, and when the shock is from about 1inch from full extension, there's a small 'click'.. from the left side (eta side).
    What is this?

    You know I have not ANY creaking yet from the pivots, but I do try avoid mud holes if possible. I also just reinstalled all my pivot bolts since I just sent them off to ano a month or so ago, but no creaking . I do get a little cable slap on the seatube from routing the cables under the toptube and over the upper link.

    Thanks. The I9s are definitely living up to the hype. Silky smooth, very light and incredibly stiff. Not to mention the freewheel's buzz. Definitely giving King hubs a run for the money in the noise department.

    I'm going to guess and say yeah. It came off my old Nicolai Nucleon which was owned previously by Dave Weagle…so it would make sense that it was E13.

    Sure did. Nucleon ST. Here she is:



    Though after thinking about it, the ST had a 1 1/8 headtube. The reducers came off my Nicolai UFO, which doesn't help much as I still don't recall who made them.

    I don't know where you got that.

    They are supposed to be a very grippy tire wet and dry, and also roll very very well?

    bye the way, your 6.6 looks great

    @cbharping
    is that a 150 or 170mm fork in the 6.6

    i still can´t decide between the 6.6 and the Uzzi

    I'm very impressed with them.
    Rolling restistance is almost as good as semi slicks I've used before. Traction is excellent. They handle great in all surfaces under dry conditions (haven't tried them in all-out wet conditions though). The few times I've run into mud, they seemed to shed pretty well, and still had good traction.
    For a triple compound they seem to be long wearing, especially in comparison to Michellin XCR dry - dual compound.
    Air leakage is also very minimal. It's been over four months and I'll finally have to top it up for my next ride (mounted on DT 4.1d rims with their tubless kit).

    CB! Nice bike, great shots.
    The small doesn't have that extra piece by the seat post?
    And the 66 fork is awesome for the person that asked me, but I don't have measurements for you yet, sorry.

    Excellent CB but..... why no whistler report from Skull? some of us have been waiting to hear/read how the trip on the new bikes went? Him on his Uzzi and you on the new 6.6?

    So this is how the replacement 6.6 (upgrade from the 5.5 that I kept breaking) came out. 66RC2X fork, RP23 shock -- I'm slightly concerned about the RP23, mostly because I don't think of the Float brand as "all mountain" or, shall we say, "durable." Might send it off to PUSH as well.

    Size large, color Java (not obvious due to overbright flash). Oh yeah...and a Gravity Dropper seat post, which is very groovy.

    Lg. Ti Gray 6.6

    Here is my 6.6. I had a 5.5 as my main trail bike and when the 6.6 came out i figured that it was what I thought the 5.5 would be. I was not disappointed. I love this bike. The frame is only a 1/2 pound heavier than the 5.5. Its geometry is very adabtable to anything that I want to do with it. Heres my build.
    Frame:large 6.6 w/ RP3 rear shock
    Fork:Manitou Nixon platinum w/ IT system
    Wheelset: Mavic 519 w/ Hugi 240 rear hub, Mavic 517 w/ Hugi 240 front hub
    Tires: Syncros Point 'n Shoot... Very light and rolls fast. 2.35"
    Brakes: Hayes HFX Mag Carbons.... 7" front, 6" rear
    Shifters: Shimano XT
    Handlebar: Syncros Bulk
    Stem: Thomson
    Post: Thomson
    Cranks: Shimano XT 2 piece
    Derailers: XT front and rear
    Pedals: Crank Bros Mallet M
    Cassette: XT
    Headset: FSA Orbit Z1R

    WEIGHT: 30.1lbs
    The fork saves alot of weight as well as the wheelset and tires.
    Love the Nixon.
    Wheel set is 4 years old but never really needed trued.
    If your looking for a do everything bike this is it. Climbs as good as my 5.5 just not as snappy as far as the accleration. The payoff is the DH.

    Great to see some different colours and specs. Mines being build up at the moment. (Medium, Gloss black/Mavic/Hope/Avid brakes and Raceface cranks).
    Iwanted to keep it reasonably light, but it was beginning to get a bit expensive!
    Hopefuly it will be around the 31/32lb mark.

    Can't wait to get it.


    Cheers,

    James.

    P.s, what % F & R sag are you guys running for hard trail use?
    Also, can anyone recommend a good lightweigh UST tyre 2.2/3 for autumn/winter use?

    Thanks again.
