    Spider Comp Photo Thread

    Spider Comp Photo Thread-image.jpg

    I figured it was about time to start an official Spider Comp picture thread. Here is mine to start it off. No trail time yet but feels like it is going to rip on the downhills based on the pavement tests. Thanks to Jaydn at Fanatik for hooking me up with this sweet build. I highly recommend Jaydn or Dave at Redstone if you are looking to get one.

    Large
    Fox 34 Float 130mm
    Enve AM/DT Swiss 350/Aerolite
    XT Shifters/Derailleurs/Brakes/Cassette/Chain/Pedals
    XO 22/36 Crank
    Race Face Turbine 70mm stem
    Race Face Next Flat Wide bar
    Cane Creek 110 headset
    Reverb post (non stealth)
    WTB Rocket V SLT saddle
    ODI Ruffian Grips
    Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 TS Front/Spec Purgatory 2.3 rear tires (2.35 Schwalbes are a tight fit in the rear due to height, plenty of room with the specie)

    Nice build, you will love it. It rolls the chunk so smooth.

    question..I was going to go with XO instead of XTR but I was told that XO double hits the chainstay so I ended up going with XTR. How close is yours? One tooth of my outer ring hits when I not in sag.

    I have plenty of room with the XO crank and chainstay. With that said, I am running the 22/36 gearing on it. The 28/42 might hit but I have no intention of running that high of gearing on a 29er with the uphill slogs we have here in CO. I intentionally did not go with Shimano so I could get the lower 2x10 gearing.

    OK,
    I was about to buy one of these, based on demos, then rode another 1 more time, and was bugged by a noise that i thought was from the internal cables, shaking inside the tube.
    since these are sweet looking rides, all well built, how is the cable routing working for you?
    solid, quiet? or a bit loose and rattley?
    thx,
    Holiday

    I haven't noticed it but I haven't really ridden it over any rough trails yet as everything in co is snowed over. I am sure I can wrap the cable in thin foam wrap or use some heavy grease if I end up hearing some rattles.

    You will be fine on XX1 with a 32. I am running a 38 for Enduro racing without issues.

    I dont have any cable rattle because intense have been good in using a carbon inserted tubes with a inside diameter not much bigger than the outer cable or hose.

    My road bike suffers from what you describe because the cables are lose within the main frame tubing.

    Good news. I thought they had just put the cable through the tube, but it has a tube. in there to control the movement.
