    I am going to add Azonic Outlaw wheels in White, as these DT 6.1 are NOT staying in true too well...

    Sweet ride.

    I have an '05 7point3 with a DHX 5.0 and a Manitou Shermann (hopefully soon to be a Ti Travis Single).

    32T (with 11-32 cassette), but I spin it out a lot at the ski resorts. A 34 or 36T would be better. It's good for all-around riding though.

    I'm running a Gamut P40 with an FSA 36t DH ring, and a SRAM 11-32t. Never had a problem. On the steep climbs, I realize that doing some explosive style weight training would help just so that I could power over some of the stuff... but throwing on an 11-34 would make the same difference.

    On a side note, I've never dropped my chain with my 36t and my P40, and I'm VERY, VERY satisfied with the FSA DH rings. I had a 34t before, using an E-13 guide, and now the 36t with my P40. Love them.

    A 32 would be great for climbing, but you'll spin out of gear SO fast going on a slightly declined fast section.

    Ideally, a 34t and an 11-34t should give you plenty of gear and plenty of climbing teeth. 36th is fine by me though.

    On an additional side note, my fork arrived today. Nothing special. A Manitou Shermann Breakout (2005) from Answer Products. Bobi over there is amazing. Starnut and fork installation tonight, and I'm FINALLY, after a month, back on my trusty steed.

    I've come to the conclusion that 7points climbs like a pregnant goat.

    This is after 4 days of hard AM riding

    7Point IR

    Winston & Chirs - The agony of not being able to ride our 7Points:


    Last month Chirs OTB’d off a drop, flew a long way and broke his right clavicle and both hips. Not to mention a sweet concussion.

    Last week I OTB’d off a different drop, landed on my head and broke my right clavicle as well. No concussion for me.

    Here we are looking forward to a mid/late summer return to riding:


    Damage to the 7Points? Chirs needs a new seat. (To be expected when the rider hits the ground first…DOH!)

    Going Small...

    Was waiting for a buddy and noticed that the rock face yonder was looking awfully ride-able... after testing the water going small a few times, I think it's time to build a tranny and see what happens.

    Aight. As I am waiting for my 7.7 2006, I noticed there is someone resembling a chick holding an M16 on the seattube. Does anyone mind posting a pic of it?

    Talking of lightening up a 7point, I have an 06 7point5 and its need to lose weight, I'm thinking of changing the fork, to a single crown with air, any suggestions? I'm thinking of an 06 66 or something, changing the front to single ring and some llighter wheels in the futuresuggestions would be great

    Thanks

    What tires are you running (+ tubes) From the stock timberwolfs(which I love) plus the DH tubes I saved over 2.5 lbs. But then again I added another lb with the super T. What fork do you have?

    Lighter wheels are on my list.(build them yourself and save a bundle!)

    If you think about it going single ring will save .25 of a lb. with the ring and the derailleur taken off you have to add a guide. which just adds the weight right back on.

    But all those little things sure do add up.

    IMO I would say if you like your current fork dont change it becuase it is heavy.

    at the moment its pretty much stock, the fork is great, a boxxer u-turn but I was hoping to save a bit of weight by going to a single crown, out here climbing is required to run downhill, but removal of the front 2nd ring would mean a new bash guard and balance out the weight, the tires and tubes would be a good change, maybe down to a 2.3

    Industry nine. Duh. Custom made in pretty much any color scheme imaginable. Of course, you have to have the $ (or rather, the $$$$)

    Yeah dont change the fork. Tires and tubes is where I would go 1st. Highrollers are pretty light.

    My guess is that its not being ate up by the chain rings. It is the dérailleur when the suspension compresses to full travel. That happened to mine also. So I moved the dérailleur up just alittle. Readjusted the dérailleur cable and then taped up the rear cable with elect tape.

    Ahh. Thanks! My friend is thinking about getting a ROCO for his Stinky, and he told me he would sell his DHX 5 to me for cheap. I checked, and I'm 98% sure that the eye-to-eye length is the same (8.75") but the spring diameters are different, I think his is a 3.0 and mine is a 2.75. It should be alright, right? The manitou spring should fit on the Fox right? I''ve ridden his bike, and I like the DHX, not sure I dig the propedal though....

    Sweet looking 7Point and great action shots. (Phew, steep, nice job!)

    Any trouble with the Ti spring rubbing the shock body?

    Thanks Winston! I am lovin the bike!! That's the "Notch" on Porcupine Rim. The Hazard Down ride is 23 miles and gives you 4800' of descent. You ride Hazard County, Kokepelli, LPS, Porcupine Rim trails. We were too early (snow bound) to ride "The Whole Enchilada" which includes Burro Pass trail above Hazard and adds another 1000-1500'+ vertical drop.

    No rubbing at all with the Ti spring.

    What was she wearing?

    This is the most important question.

    I tend to ride faster through "Hazard County" when the local smokies are on my tail.

    what do you guys think is stronger. the aniki/ojiki frame or the 7 point frame. they both are 7" travel frames but the 7 point has alot more pivot points and the aniki frame only has 1 pivot. but the 7 points frame is more expensive. to me the aniki/ojiki frame looks stronger.

    I dont think I could possibly break my 7point frame. Its a beast.

    If someone has, all the power to them.

    36 Talas?????
    I believe the 36 Talas has a A2C of 545mm.
    My old 05' 7point3 had a Manipoo Stance Flow on it with a A2C of 532mm.
    I had a lot of fun with the bike so as far as slackness is concerned, I think the Talas would be great.
    I think most 7point owners would want a taller fork with more travel but the 36Talas is a great fork and would work well with a 7point! IMO
    A 36 Vanilla might be a better choice though!

    yea 36 Talas

    Right now I have a 04/05 Super T, its a decent long travel fork.

    I've just been using my 7point for more AM riding and well its getting annoying.

    Yeah I understand. I rode my 7point more for AM as well. If you don't mind the steeper geometry the Talas gives you.(not a big deal IMO), It should be great.

    The Talas36 works very well on the 7 point for AM usage, especially for lofting the front up over obstacles.

    I wasn't too pleased with my 06 7 point 5 with the stock boxxer, it was way too front heavy for climbing. I put the Talas36 on it really livened up the bike (but it steepened the head angle a tad from the boxxer)

    Dang... with that Lyric and the Ti spring on the Swinger, that should be pretty light. Have you weighed that thing yet?

    Is that the carbon Black Spire bashguard?

    That's the exactly frame I'm riding except with a DHX 5.0 Coil, and an '05 Manitou Shermann.

    Nice bike.

    Yeah... 39lb. Ring God is alloy.

    I ordered this 05 standard 7.3 from US thru HK bikeshop for US1150 including air delivery.
    Replaced the stance with u-turn lyrik+e13 reducer, 3ways 5-element to 6ways+ti spring. smaller highroller 2.35 tyres and light tubes. This cut away 3lbs ...

    Hows the modulation on the saints? I've tried codes, juicy 7's, and elcamino's.
    From what I've heard the Saints have the feel of the codes with more power?

    Way better than the Hayes, plus better power. My Hayes were pretty on/off and sometimes I needed to two finger brake with them.

    The Saints have been way better for me.

    I've used Juicy 7s a couple of times on different bikes. I liked them. I have a pair of Juicy 5s on my all mountain bike, they are good, but I like the Saints much better.

    Never tried the El Caminos, but I remember one of my riding buds being very disappointed and switching to Saints.

    I don't know anyone that is running Codes.

    Good luck and keep the pictures coming,

    Winston

    I agree with Winston, as well. The Saint brakes are nice! And I was running Hayes for years before I got them. Good lever feel, great modulation, fade-free, and consistant one-finger braking. Good luck!

    I know the Saints are great brakes but before you scrap the Hayes I should tell you about the mods I did to mine. First I pulled the calpers off and faced the mounting surfaces I then did some machining to the mounting holes, enlarging them slightly and countersinking them a small amount. I then mouted them back on the bike using convex v-brake pad washers that fit into the countersukunk mounting holes (see the attached photo). If you look closely you can see the flat side of the brake pad washer under the bolt head and there is another between the caliper and the hayes brake mount adapter. I also filed out the slot between the calipers halves for a bit more clearance. All of this allows me to get perfect alignment of the caliper to the rotor much like the system Avid uses with the Juicy's. I then changed out the levers for Danger Boy Gripped levers and wow what a difference this all makes. More modulation, no squealing and all the power that I need. I am running an 8" rotor in the front and a 6" in the rear.

    Let me know if anyone has any questions.

    Go with it, but don't throw away the hayes. If you need more info on my mods to the Hayes let me know. My only real concern about he stuff I did to the brakes was durabilty but I don't think I removed enough material from th calipers to substantially weaken them.

    Give er and good on ya!

    We'll I've been using the Pearl 3.1 for almost 5 months. Riding usualy 2-5 times a week. Its still like the day I got it. SUPER smooth, it does heat up at places like Northstar after a few hours of riding, then and only then can I feel a slight dip in performance. But nothing that makes me want to get rid of it.

    I have always like air shox, it works really well with the 7point. Which I do anything and everything on, from dj,fr,dh,xc. I really like the versitility. pump it up for DJ and XC let some out for DH runs.

    Its not exaclty the right size I think its off by .01 of an inch? I think thats what I remember reading. Not enough to throw the Geo or performance off by anymeans.

    I'm wondering how improperly balanced the bike is... considering that you've got a very heavy fork on it, and a shock that weighs very little compared to the Manitou Metal/5th Element/DHX-coil that usually comes on these bikes.

    I think that NorCal Sticker looks pretty damn good, I get comments on it ALL the time.

    So far the front feels really good. The back needs a bleed BAD. Thats tomorrow morning, then I'll ride after that.

    I really dont notice it. Going from the Drop Off to the Super T Its not THAT much added weight, with the air shox on the back it jumps alot nicer. The front pulls down just a tad but I've never had a problem with the bike over rotating on me.

    I really dig the combo. I would really like a 06 boxxer ride but the lack funds crush that dream.

    My rough estimate... 38 or 39? No DH tubes single ply tires.
    I'll see if I can get it weighed sooner or later.

    I bled the Saints this morning. Holy smokes I already love them. So much modulation compared to the Hayes.

    I cant wait to take them out on a trail (hopefully tonight)
    The Resin pads are super grippy. I think I might get a set of metalic and run them half and half.

    I've seen a few '06 bikes with a random grey/silver link, but you're right; Most of the '06 models had the red lower link.

    P.S. Love your signature man. Haha... cracks me up.

    Ugfhgfghf!!! Monster T and 7point - more power to him. A '99-02 Monster on the bike would make for an interesting combo, though.

    Winston - No more 66? A trial or permanent change? Welcome to the 7pointDC club if so.
