    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.
