    Just got back from Diablo this past weekend. My buddy JYETI was snapped railing the berm/wallride line by someone with some skills. How he rides with that stubby little Boxxer on there I'll never know. But he keeps it real for the fat guys....real fast.

    Seems like he knows how to handle his bike.

    Those pics make me want to go hit up the Whistler trails. Too bad they're closed for the season now.

    Looks like if you swap your top crown out for one with more drop them you could move the stanchions down and slack the head angle out.

    Nice pics BTW.

    My buddy in the picture I posted a few weeks ago has the Boxxer drop crown on his 7.7 and I suggested the same thing. Problem is that the crown will hit the side of the frame before any bumper hits it, plus then it really impacted the turning radius on switchbacks.

    Give it a shot though. He's a pretty horrible mechanic (my friend) so he could be out of his mind. Plus they could have changed the Boxxer crowns this many years later.

    Super pics! Winston, I'm wondering why you haven't switched to a dual crown fork. Is the 66 that nice? I ask because I'm in the market for a new ride and after viewing this thread, I've settled on the 07 7.5, but I think I'm going to go with some 888's just for the extra rigid feel up front.

    Once again, super pics people!

    Thanks

    When it was time to replace the Breakout Plus, I was thinking a 888 RC2X or Fox 40r. I ended getting the 66 RC2X as a compromise. (Less cost, better turning radius and I was worried about slacking out the bike too much.) The 66 Light probably would have been a better choice for the amount of climbing I do, but I wanted dual coil.

    I've been extremely happy with the 66 RC2X. (Plush, solid and reliable.)

    I think it is sweet that the 2007 7Point5 comes with a 1.5 headtube version of the 66. I wouldn't be so quick to replace it, unless you are wanting a slacker head angle.

    Well, I hope you get the bike soon and enjoy it as much as my friends and I have.

    Where is that?

    Your profile says Bellingham, but that doesn't look like galbraith to me.
    Is that somewhere near Enumclaw or Eastern WA?

    Those pics were taken on Blanchard Mountain just south of B-ham. The top one is looking south over the Skagit Valley, taken at the same spot that is commonly used for launching hang-gliders.

    Does the roller with the graffiti on it require you to raise your front wheel or can you just roll it?

    Easy roll, Chris just likes to pull. Pulling might make it a tad smoother, but it's not very kinky.

    I've been riding Horsies for almost two years now, and with their progression in the sport, and the name Iron Horse going from a "specialty brand" (ie. specially heavy), they've really come around. The DW-Link, and the introduction of the Sunday as their race bike, and the 6-point as their almost-able-to-compete-with-the-Nomad weight reduction... I'm sold for life.

    My next bike will probably be a 6-point, but my dream bike would be a new 7point7. The Totem makes it all worth while. Perfectly balanced free-ride/DH combo. bike.

    *sigh*

    Now... where to find $4,500.

    DH racing without a visor is cheating! Damn dirty cheating no less. What's next, a lycra skin suit? Are you French?! Freedom fries!! FREEDOM FRIES!!!

    Steve Peat lead a petition a few years ago to get all the UCI DH riders to sign that they would commit to always wear a visor on their full face helmets. I can't remember if he lobbied against the skin suits the UCI mandates during the World Champs. Lycra, it's what keeps giggles going when you tell girls you're an avid mountain biker. Ugh, stupid lycra, killing my chances of getting laid every time I open my piehole.

    </rant>


    I like those shorts though. Grey TLD camo? Oh and is someone in those pics running an 05 66?

    Im probably going to race my 1st DH race with no visor... I got my helmet from a friend and well he broke it and I havnt replaced it yet. Im a cheattter too But no Lycra here. Im to damn skinny to fit in any lycra's (I know isnt that scary!) I still need to get a new derailleur for my 7point... and prob a hanger too 1st ride out and a bent derailleur.....

    Good luck with the hangers...

    I know around here it's near impossible to find a shop that carries those.

    The only place I can find them is on derailleurhangers.com You can get 2 for 30 somthin bucks. I think it would be a good idea just to cary a spare

    Derailleurhangers.com is where it's at for 7Point hangers. I tried to get my local Performance to order them, then an independant shop who got the wrong hanger. Eventually I just ordered 3 of them from the online place and they were shipped out and at my door within a few days total.

    I bent more hangers and mangled more derailleurs last season than I thought possible. Gets quite pricey and you know you're out of luck when you stock up before a trip out of town, or when you keep your old bent derailleurs "just in case I need something to keep the chain on".

    Actually, I'm probably the least impressed with the 7Point hanger. It could stand to be a lot stronger since it seems to bend in half if you look at crosseyed. And it's not like it saves the mech from damage which usually just lands it in the spokes or bent up regardless.

    I'm lobbying for a solid screw-in type axle in 2009 for the 7Point.

    If it helps at all, its the best FR bike i've rode. I rode a Bullit, Norco Fluid, Nomad, VP Free (thats a nice bike!) But I like the 7point geo better.

    How does he like them thar' Hopes?

    P.S. Just threw on a DXH 5.0, brand new Shermann SPV 170mm, new brakes pads and new Specialized Chunder tires. Grip better than my High Rollers, slightly lighter, and better traction through corners and while climbing.

    My bike feels PRIME right now.

    You were at CCCX? I didn't see you.

    I was on the '05 7point3 frame (that's mine) with a ton of random parts, and my buddy was on the pretty much bone stock '06 7point5.
    Meh.

    For the Prize...

    I can name that trail for the grand prize... That's The Bobsled. In fine form right now, too.

    Here is a belated pic from my last Moab trip. Not too "gnar" but a fine pic of the roll-in to the last wash near the end of Porcupine Rim trail... for reference, the sign that says "trail" is vertical. Woot!

    Finally finished adding the last few things that I had planned before Spring. I still need to tweak the seat position, lower fork crown height, bars, etc. but I thought I'd add a few pics now:





    Full Specs:
    2005 7point M
    Roco with Manitou spring
    2005 888RC with Risse crowns and Funn MZ2X stem
    Holzfeller bars
    Azonic Outlaws with Minions F 2.5" 3C
    SDG post and Bel-Air FX I-Beam saddle
    e-13 STS with 32T Crown Wheel
    Deity cranks and BB
    Saint brakes with Deore levers
    Crank Brothers 5050xx pedals (or Mallets)

    Can't wait for things to dry up around here and get it on the trails.

    toby
