    It's a 66 RC2X. 4 rides so far and it is breaking in nicely. Its a nice improvement over the Breakout +. (Small bump and high speed wise.)

    Had a small problem with the low speed compression knob allen bolt falling off. Luckily the knob itself fell off in my hand when I was adjusting it.

    (You can see in the photo that the knob is missing from the bottom the fork leg.)

    And I thought I had to worry about the rebound and X-compression adjusters disappearing...lol.

    I do miss having a travel reduction system a little, but I biased my decision towards downhill performance.

    To be honest even with the travel reduction, the uphills will still be the same struggle. How's the weight compare between the two forks?

    I like the look of the white fork on that frame, a travis 180 in white would look sick too.

    I can't tell a weight difference.

    I saw a couple Travis Single 203 TPC+ forks at The Path tonight.

    I was hoping one of them was a 180 to compare axle to crown height with a 66. I know the 180 is taller. (Just neat to finally see the Travis up close, I'm glad I went with the 66.)

    Haha, not true for me, the ETA makes a HUGE difference for climbing. Travel reduction is a very subjective thing. Some people swear by it, others swear that it screws up the geometry, even for climbing.

    BTW, I see chirs lock his down so about 2" of stanchions are showing for every climb so I know what group he's in.

    I'm with you - I've had a Talas, a Bkout + and a Pike - the travel adjust gets used on every xc ride. IMO, it's invaluable on steep climbs.
    That being said, SylentK did a fair amount of climbing last nite on his Sunday w/ Roco and 888rc2x (and a 32t chainring). Pretty impressive...

    Yeah! I'm sure he'll weigh in on how it rides, but he's kick'n a$$ with that fork. His whole setup is really nice, balanced ride. The only issue was that when he first got it the right seal was leaking like crazy. Not wanting to have to send it back, because of the down time, we pulled it apart and found the inner seal was flipped upside down!? Once we fixed that it's been working great ever since.

    Very strong candidate for my next ride!

    It can be done, I do the same thing on my SGS Team DH bike, but it's certainly a lot more work for me. I used to even tie down the Boxxer once in a while on really long climbs. I adapted the bike to accept a front derailleur, so I do know what it's like to climb steep stuff with it.

    A couple years ago my ETA wasn't working quite right on my Z150 so it would creep back to fully extended after a couple minutes. I had a badly broken collarbone that was just healing, but I couldn't stand climbing without it so I'd be constantly slamming the front end down trying to re-engage it despite the pain. I'm sure Chris remembers that!

    No problems whatsoever- solid fork.

    That fork is the best one I have ever ridden (66 ETA Light). It is awesome for everything. Around here we have a lot of steep ups so the ETA is a must. I lock mine down as low as I can, it makes the climbs way easier. This fork plus the efficiency of the DW link make the 7point a very efficient climber for a freeride bike.

    A rather modest picture of my rather modest downhilling effort from this past weekend at Massanutten Virginia. I came in very nearly dead last in my beginner category, but hark, I didn't and that was my goal for my first downhill race. So HAH!!

    Here is me hitting a little hip behind my house.

    I just got my new ride two days ago...I love this bike. Dave you have designed an amazing machine...I got to take it on some DH tracks yesterday and It tracks so well in the corners and off camber. Landing jumps and drops are sooo sweet.

    2006 7Point7 action shots

    I had the pleasure of riding with Shannon yesterday on The Path ride. He owns a large 2006 7Point7.

    Here are some shots of Shannon in action:


























    Shannon even let me take his bike off the drop a couple of times. His bike felt very nice and a livelier feel and than my plush setup. (We both ride a large. Both have a 66 RC2X up front. He has a DHX Coil while I run a Roco RC.)

    Heres a couple photo's from a recent shore ride, the wallride is harder than it looks, as it has an interesting little jump about 10 feet before you hit it. The other is of a ladder on cbc.

    My first 7p7 action shot!

    Rode on of my favorite trails on Sunday. Great ride, and quite a change from our former Socal surroundings. The move to Utah and the 7point have both been great!

    Only one pic of me on the IH (rolling down the ladder on Aztec Rock), but there are some nice shots of others on the thread below, including Chuky taking a nice dirt nap, and a rather gigantic moose.

    Moose! Pics from Sunday

    Enjoy!

    Okay I suddenly realised I should throw these pictures up, taken when I was practising for the Air DH on A-line at Crankworx.






    I also have a new camera, so once the bike is clean I'll get some static shots too.

    The boys were unharmed. Just some road rash on my forearm and a sore neck from hitting my head. (I am retiring the helmet.)

    Here's was a more successful venture from earlier in the evening:






    This is the same drop that opens this thread. (I guess my first attempts leave something to be desired.)

    If this thread doesn't get some serious wooded terrain it's going to implode into a blackhole of boulders, rolldowns, and shrublands.

    So here's my part....these are shots from some filming that I did over the past weekend. That's me in the pics, a friend was filming, the first is a helmetcam shot while the rest are from 50% sized shots from my DV camcorder. No boulders, no fully compressed 66 forks, no seats at XC angles of attack (well you can't see that, but trust me).
