    The 10sp X0 sram isn't working perfect. I am trying to iron out some issues.

    Ozzer, is that the new Can Am yellow or just the plain old regular yellow? I ask because I think it looks dope.

    Very Nice man!!!!! Nice choice!!! Looking forward to seeing it built up!! I gotta order my DH40 next week and a Hadley 150 rear hub. I have time, so just taking it easy since i cant use it for a few months. Funny you named it after the Mickey D's character! The name fits!

    Heh, yep Bike Toys in our house is a pretty easy discussion. Now she just needs to sell her 951 (complete) from last year.

    Tuning and setup for the M9 starts this weekend. So much adjustibility it is almost silly. Luckily my 951 is tuned so we can just focus on her bike setup.

    Rear Shock - 4 settings + spring weight
    Fork - 4 settings
    Travel - 3 settings (8.5", 9.0" 9.5")
    Head Angle (3 settings)
    Wheelbase (3 settings)
    Shock progression (3 settings)

    It came out a little heavier than her 951 was. The 951 is 39.55lbs without pedals. The M9 is 41.12lbs with her Burgtec Pedals.

    Dwdrums, how much do you weigh? what linkage settings are you using? I'm trying to figure out what spring rate I would be. I am 175 lbs with riding gear and would probably use the 8.5 or 9.0" setting/ medium leverage ratio.

    It's a THE front fender. Comes in 2 pieces and its just lightweight plastic. I trimmed it with scissors so the shock spring can be easily taken off, flat black paint, 2 zip ties. Veddy hi tek.
    Was going to use a yogurt container.
    Next is to put a lid on the top of the swingarm in front of the fender. There's a big hole there that holds kiwi sized rocks nicely, right on top of the spring. One of the Geronimo/Banshee Bikes guys, Graeme, had the same clear cover plate there.
    Kinda annoying when one flys in there and rattles around, sawing on all the new paint & aluminum bits.

    Are you running E13 cranks? How did you like them and was the setup easy?

    Mine M9 weights 37.98lbs currently. I am running the 9.5" setting, middle g3, middle shock rate and 0* angle set. I am 210lbs without gear and I am running a 450lbs Ti spring. My buddy is about 195lbs and he is running a 400lbs spring with the same settings.

    Super easy setup. Crank the cups, slide the drive arm in, tighten the left arm and measure with spacers. Remove left arm and install with those same spacers. Instructions were written for the lowest common denominator...
    I was a little concerned at the friction in the system, big water and dirt seals, but the benefit is longetivity & protection of the bearings. It definitely loosens up after first 2 or 3 rides. You'd probably modify it for a world champs run.
    I'm running the e13 LG1+ guide that both e13 isn't sure about and Intense recommends against. Tight tolerances in fitment but seems to work fine with no rubbing or modification. Set to wide setting. The only thing different than the standard install is I put one of the thin spacers on the right side to clear the chainguide better. Talked it through with a tech at e13.
    The System rocks. Did a few Tunnel break in runs and the arms are stiff, system is tight, don't miss the Saints. But time will tell.

    Didn't get the frame early enough to go full retro on the paint. Really digging the yellow like the very first M1-SL I bought in the 90s.



    I'm loving it.

    I see that it looks like there is an opening in the head tube for water to get in. How is it supposed to get out?

    I remember that my M3 used to be able to carry about 6 ounces of water until I'd flip the bike over just right to drain the frame, until I siliconed the gaps in the lower plates where it wasn't welded (this was how M3s were built, so it wasn't a defect).

    I'd install a rubber gasket in there! It'd keep the dirt out your headset bearings as well.

    http://www.mtbti.com/Tigearbolts/Home_Page.html has some kits designed for MTB parts, example brake kits etc.

    http://www.racebolts.com has a great inventory of ti bolts but you have to know what size you need.

    Is it rubbing on the frame or the plastic sleeve of the DB? If it is the plastic sleeve you can remove it with affecting the shock or the warranty.

    You can remove the sleeve, cosmetic only. Prevents the viloin tuning sound.

    My M6 with the CCDB was silent with the steel spring, but when I went to a titanium spring, it also sounded like a violin (there's a thread on this somewhere).

    I removed the plastic sleeve, and covered the shock body with shrink tube, but that's now getting worn off.
    May the air be filled with tires!

    Also check the orientation of the sping to the lower cup. End of spring should be 180 degrees away from opening of spring holder. Theres a few video's posted on Youtube by Cane Creek that help with set-up and spring oreintation. Combination of the 2 and no more violin.

    Staying plain old black. Only purple is the pins on the TWenty6 pedals.
    Everything else is Black or urban camo except the guide which is a touquise color I got from E13. It was made for the CRC race team and they had extras.
    I went crazy with the purple with the Lenz PBJ

    Hi Christiaan, At first i didnt realy like it, it felt great in the car park but had a bit of harsh breakaway in the real chattery stuff, but i raced it on the weekend and slowed the roubound and softened up the compression. worked a treat, very happy with it indeed.

    Its got a standard B (mid tune) on the shock, i have RS tune guide on what tune (low mid high) to use if you are thinking about using one.

    cheers.

    Currently running a 400lb Ti spring on the CCDB. Ride is really plush, but will be looking to try a 450 to see how it feels. Think it would come down to rider prefence and terrain to determine what you would find ideal.

    Ride at between 190/200lbs geared up.

    Have posted these before, but Malcolm from Cane Creek sent me their intial settings when they were testing the M9. Really helped to use as a starting point.

    HSC 1.5 - 1.75 turns

    LSC 13 - 15 clicks

    HSR 1.5 - 2.0 turns

    LSR 12 - 17 clicks

    Also try link from the site

    The RC4 is slightly better then a DHX. The mid stroke is horrible. Pony up the $50 for the CCDB. If you don't like it sell it and get a custom tuned Rocco Wc, Elka or Avy tuned Swinger for less money.

    Like it. Was thinking about doing the same thing with the yellow M9 sticker, minus the cow. Pulled all the stickers off already, as they werent sticking very well to the stealth black paint surface. That and the abuses of shuttling

    AAAhhh so it is, should have caught that.

    Running the DHF front and back on the M. But on our AM bikes we typically run a HR on the back and DHF on the fronts. Noticed you and Christiaan both running the HR on the fronts. Any problems with them hooking up? Havent had that much luck with them as a front tire in the desert.

    Well, I haven't ridden really dry conditions in years, hahaha, the ST HR 2.5 front hooks up fine, even in the alps during the Megavalanche, even on the loose rocks etc, but I haven't tried a minion on the front ever, so can't compare
