    It's one of those forks that you sit on, and compress the fork a little, and you think... "This feels okay. Nothing spectacular though." But then you ride it, and you're like... "WOW". My Manitou was a 170mm fork, but I never got more than 150 out of it. The Totem, as it stands now, is about 165, and it's fully utilized. So I'm stickin' with it.
    I have a 2 step on my 06 7point and yes the leak down was never completely fixed in the new 2 step air spring they sent me (CS round 1), but they also sent me the solo air spring (CS round 2) and that is what I have been using since June. I really do not miss the 2 step, sure some climbs would be better with 165 travel but that's it and the fork is 1/2 lb. lighter as a solo. I run 55 lbs. in it for my 140lb weight. It's super buttery with smal bump and big hit.

    I would call SRAM CS and see if they will send you the solo air spring for a immediate fix. It was their idea to send me the solo air spring as they did not have the new 2 step parts for mine at that time. I am going to send back the original 2 step air spring and see if they have the new upgrade parts available yet. Their CS is awsome!!

    Mr. Manitou. Your name is misleading, YOU LIAR! Haha... It should be "RockShox454" or something.

    How long did it take to get the part from Rock Shox CS? And how did the install go? Was it an easy fix? I'll be doing Downieville this weekend, so I don't really need the 2-step for this ride in particular.

    Ha Ha, Yeah Yeah I know, I really don't work for SRAM. We live near the Manitou Islands, hence the name. I called RS and they sent it out the next day. Of course they only send to shop address so it was about 4-5 days total from what I remember. If I recall you work at Performance so they should ship directly to you at the store. It ships out of Chicago so figure 3-4 days.

    I would call them today and get it on the way so maybe you can have it by the W/E. Super easy tear down and rebuild on the air spring make sure they send you oil as well, you need 15 wt. and 5 weight oil for the job. Here is the link to the service guides for RS. http://www.sram.com/en/service/rocks...D=5&subcatID=1

    Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

    I have bad luck with tearing major components down before epic rides... and then breaking something and completely wrecking my plans. I think I'll ride the Totem as a 165mm travel fork, instead of the 180. Shouldn't be a huge difference.

    I'm still awaiting my buddy to call SRAM and see what they say. He's gonna' fire off a message to them by the end of this week.

    Winter's coming up, and the big bike kinda' gets put away for a while towards the winter.

    I'll be on my MkIII a lot this cold season ( at me saying "cold season" while living in Northern California).

    For what it's worth, the 3 guys I know that had warranty issues with their Totems were well taken care of. (Two creaky crown coil Totems and 1 loss of travel 2 Step Totem.) I think it took a week.

    Thanks Winston. I'm convinced of their CS superiority.

    Although, when I was running Manitou forks, my local rep. was great about getting me hooked up with whatever I needed. Major props to Bobi at Answer Products.

    I'm just gonna' give er' a go, and see what happens!

    Grant... STHU and GBTW!

    OMG STFU BBQ!

    P.S. Your bike, despite being the dame, is still almost 5 lbs. lighter than mine, with a double ring. If I had your setup, I'd be more prone to riding the 7point all year round too.

    Single ring 36t, 11-32 cassette, 43lbs. of Totem'd bliss.

    Its not by choice that I ride it year round its my only bike. I'd love to have a MKIII!!!

    ( If I get a boxxer ride it'll lose another lb )

    Winston,(Or anybody else with know-how) what PSI's are you running in your RC2X? (I know you probably still have the 40 on but...) The manual for the 66 is amazingly ridiculous. (137 PSI in the compression chamber for my weight!) Last week I rode at the Collanade bike park under I-5 in downtown Seattle, that place is shweet! But we didn't get to goof off around downtown because my bro had a flat, and fix-a-flat doesn't work on tubeless tires with 1 cm slits in em! We're gonna try and make another trip into downtown this week if the weather is bearable! Seven points rock for urban!

    I think you are misreading the manual for the RC2X. It should be 0-15 psi per leg. I run 0. I was using it more for downhilling than freeriding. (No jumps and no drops over 4'.) I'm 205 before gear and never bottomed the fork.

    I had a long reply which, of course, would have caused hilarity to ensue.

    But I removed it. Haha. I didn't want it to go too far.

    Hmmn, we must have different manuals. Thanks for the response, I'm gonna go play with the pressures some more!

    Dude. WhyTF did it take you an hour to get up The Mile?

    I made it in 35 minutes from bottom to top last week!

    Did you go up the paved trail, or did you hike up the trail? Either way, it's the same amount of time. Can't figure out why in the world it would have taken you that long.

    It might have been the fact that my buddy rides a sinister R9 with a short seat post and the bike cant pedal for ****. So I stayed at his pace.

    The step down and double that I've been building this week.

    The double is steep but smoooooth (about a 10 foot gap, but looks small because of the angle)

    I really like the 909 in the back superb grip, and I love the mobster up front. (I dont know why people hate on um)

    My only problem is that the mobster is 2.5 (so 2.3) and the 909 is a huge 2.5...
    Time to try out a nevagel/ mobster combo

    Make sure you go with a DH casing on the Nevegal.

    My buddy was running a Nevegal for FR and blew out the tubes left and right.

    Tires?

    Yea I got a 2.5 DH casing Nev

    Ok since I got no response from the DH/FR forum and my fellow 7point riders probably no more than them anyways

    I have just a few tires to choose from and need advice for a good combo of winter riding mud thrashing tires.

    I have:
    2 WTB timberwolfs 2.5
    1 Kenda Kinetic 2.35
    1 Kenda Nev DH casing 2.5
    1 Intense 909 FRO 2.5
    1 Maxxis Mobster 2.5(which is really 2.3ish)

    So what would you guys run for winter riding? Terrain such as Pacifica type stuff.

    Figured I'd chime in quick... I've had the 7-Point since January and I absolutely love the bike! I'm still working on the guts for going big, but I do peddle this bike everywhere. We have lots of out - and - backs with nice rocky and fast descents and this bike feels absolutely perfect coming down... and gets up pretty well too despite being low- mid- 40's for weight.

    Speaking of weight, has anyone put a 7-Point on a serious diet with the intent of using it for more all mountain and less hucking? I realize that this slightly defeats the purpose, but I like everything about this frame, just not the weight. I also have a Soul Titan and a Jamis XLT 3.0 in my stable, but I'd rather (and do) grab the 7-Point no matter what the ride.

    I've never seen a serious diet put on a sevenpoint, but you could probably get it down to 35lbs(or lower) with a ton of parts. (Wheels, air rear and front shocks, light tires, etc.) It'd be kinda kewl to see, I like the peace-of-mind of not having to worry about breaking shtuff.

    I was thinking something along the lines of:

    Marz 66 sl or Fox 36
    Gravity Lite Cranks Bash/32/22
    Thomson X4 70mm stem
    Thomson 330 x 30.0mm post
    Pro Taper OS bars
    Intense 909 2-ply folding 2.5" front and 2.3" rear
    Titanium coil 450 X 2.75"
    Mavic 823 laced to Hope Pro 2's

    It's all wishful thinking at this point but hopefully some of it will come to fruition. I'd be stoked to get the bike into the ~37 lb ballpark with the ability to drop the front end for tech climbing... it would lessen the chore of humping the bars to keep the front down and pushing the extra weight.

    I would go with a 909 in the rear but not in the front, maybe somthing along the lines of a 2.5 timberwolf, nevegal, etc. I ran the 909 in the front for a few weeks and was not impressed. When its on the back its fantastic!

    66sl rather than the 36 just because it'll keep the FR option open for those big hucks when the 36 will wimp out

    I'm in the process of switching out my 888 for a 66RC2X (just awating the stem and headset's delivery). I absolutely LOVE the 888, but I think the 66 may suit me a little better now since I seem to have my 7point on trails more often tham DH runs. To save some weight, I'm going with 721s laced to Hope Pro 2 hubs (light!). And I ran Nevegals 2.5" DH with standard tubes this season without problems (faithfully checking the tire pressure often). Lighter than tubeless! I'm hoping to have my bike drop a few pounds with these changes. It'll still give me the versatility of the 7point with a slightly lighter overall build.

    I think you can get a 7point down to about 35-36 lbs probably not much lighter than that, I mean it is a 10# frame. My bike is 38# and I figure I can take 2 more lbs. of of it with lighter wheels and 2.35 tires for more trail riding than huckin. I plan on getting some Industry Nine Enduro wheels w/ a 150 rear hub and running some Maxxis High Roller UST tires and have 2 sets of tires and wheels. Here is how I got my 15" 06 7point down to 38 lbs.

    Roco TSTR with Ti 250# (& 325# to set up firmer)
    Totem Solo Air 1.5 w/ Cane Creek Double X HS
    Thompson X4 1.5 stem
    SIC Race bar/ Camodized
    X9 shifters '07
    Thompson seatpost
    Dabomb Danket saddle
    Bontrager King Earl wheels
    Kenda Nevegal 2.5 folding w/ Stans kit
    Gravity Lite Mega Exo
    Black Spire Stinger CG
    Xpedo MX3 pedals
    Stock Hayes 9 brakes w/ my tune, 8" front & 6" rear rotor
    Stock deraillers
    38 lbs.

    complete crap.
    It sounds like you need a bigger spring.

    But IMO you would be better off just getting a different shox.

    Overly dampened, dead, poor excuse for a shock. Get yourself a Roco or the new RS Vivid coil.

    Im in the same boat.
    I want to get back on a good coil. I replaced the Metal with an Air shox. But am now seeing the value of a coil. After a few trips to N* and Pacifica I can feel the performance leave after about the 2nd 3rd run, it heats up pretty fast, slows down and feels mushy.

    So! Its either between a Roco, Vivid, DHX 5 or 4.
    If I do end up getting one of these shoxs, would I have to get them re-valved for the DW linkage?

    I am running a stock Roco TST R. In the DH setting there is little or no compression dampening. This shock is so plush and very active. So IMHO I do not think that you need to have any other tuning. I would call Marzocchi, ask for Brian and see what he says.

    So what I get the only difference between the WC and TST is the TST has some type of pedaling platform?

    Yes, the TST has adjustable low speed compression dampening and the WC has a dial tht controls high and low speed dampening together. i think that the TST works well for the 7point if you are riding trails, pedaling it up and descending. On long climbs I twist the lever to CL, lock out my Totem and crank away. On the way down I open them both up, super nice and easy to adjust. The WC will not work as well as the TST, it is more for DH tuning.

    No worries, glad to help, you will be psyched you got the Roco. I have some Ti springs that I can sell you. They fit the Roco 8.75 x 2.75. I have a 250# and 325#, I weight 140. PM me and we can discuss the $ and work out a plan.

    I installed an '07 66RC2x today. I won't be able to get a ride on it until this wekend, though. It'll be different not to have the DC fork (888) on the bike. I'm looking forward to it! I'll report back.

    Anyone need an 8" '05 888RC?

    More Roco Questions

    So I've just heard that the roco "sucks" from a buddy.
    He feels that it is either locked out or full open.

    Isnt that why you buy a TST

    Thats what Im thinking about now... Either a WC or TST. I dont know....
    Being able to lock it out is really nice (I have an air shox now) Its so sick to be able to close the flood gate, raise the post all the way up ,relax crank up the hill.

    What would you guys do?
    I ride at North Star during the summer almost every weekend.
    Pacifica in durring the winter (which requires a 30min RIDE to the top)
    and take my XC friends out for a beating now and then.

    Being able to lock it out is really nice (I have an air shox now) Its so sick to be able to close the flood gate, raise the post all the way up ,relax crank up the hill.

    What would you guys do?
    I ride at North Star during the summer almost every weekend.
    Pacifica in durring the winter (which requires a 30min RIDE to the top)
    and take my XC friends out for a beating now and then.
    MM6,
    I have a TST on my 6point and sometimes I do use the TST lever. But I don't think I would miss the TST function. I removed the ball bearing from the lever and the tst lever just sweeps.
    Overall the bike pedals great in full plush mode. Lately I have left it in plush mode during climbs because I have an injured back and it keeps impacts to a minimum.

    Well that's not exactly correct. The manitou doesn't bob beause it has too much dampening. If I am climbing out of the saddle with my TST in DH mode I can make it bob pretty easily and it will bob with hard effort in the saddle as well. In the DH mode there is little to no compression dampening. Like I said in earlier posts if you peddle this bike on trail rides mixed with downhills and stunts the TST is the way to go, IMHO. If you are setting your bike up with one chainring and just using it for lift serve and or DH racing then i think the WC would be a better choice, again just my opinion.

    would the feel of the WC compare to the TST in full dh mode? Or are they on different levels?

    I can't speak from first hand experience on the WC but I would imagine that you could make the WC and TST (in DH mode) feel the same. I do know that there is more incremental adjustablity of the WC compared to the TST being easier to adjust while riding.

    Thanks for your opinion. Maybe I'll get a TST then!

    I've made up my mind and its WC for me.
    I think with the DW link pedaling will be under control.
    It should be here in a few weeks.

    Yeah, but thats acutally how i have my Uber V set up too. I think it comes from riding MX bikes as a kid, I'm just used to that feel.

    Had a good first ride on the 7point this morning. I love it! (it was a beast going up compared to my 30lb 6" trailbike though)

    Just pop the post up high and pedal away. The more time you spend in the saddle the less you will ride your 6" trail bike.

    nice pics by the way!

    the extra weight was definitely worth it on the downhills. i'm just so used to climbing on my other bike, which is a great climber. So I'm a bit spoiled going up...

    both bikes have their uses - the 7point for shuttling and playing around on the rocks around the local trails, the uber v for long rides with lots of climbing.

    Question for the 7point riders with 8" forks.
    How does it feel compared to the stock 7" forks? Im looking for a more DH friendly 7point but at the same time keep it in prime condition for jumping
