    yea just make sure everything is correct on the bike like the brakes, stem, headset, bars, cranks, pretty much everything is good to ride, then go to trail and ride, youll be happy

    Mine is stock and I had some difficulty as well, to adjust. But I got it now and its working just fine and no rattles or noise of anykind. If you are not intending to make hardcore jumps, etc, I think they are just fine. Take it your local bike shop, see if they can adjust it for you.

    Wheelie Man,

    You are probably riding the new shock by now but I can assure you that the 8.75"
    & 9.00" sizes both work well. I have both sizes for my Aniki (Swinger 6-Way) and I could not tell the difference.

    If anyone wants to purchase the 8.75" x 2.75" Swinger 6-Way, it is almost new and
    available for $ 150.00 without a spring (although I may have a spare spring somewhere).

    Actually I haven't got the new shock yet. I was in Canada. THANK YOU for the help.

    if your on a budget or are a beginner. when i first got mine i was not to good and it was fine then i got better and im bottoming it out to easy and i think the suspenion is to stiff. you need to upgrade the suspension and your good. the aniki frame is good. but if your going to spend money on new suspension might as well get a new bike.

    Yeah i was thinkin of getting the Sohon Bucho but i dont know because im only a beginner. I want to get a bike that i can use for a while, not just for a year or so until i get good.

    and another thing, im a noob to the sport of mountain biking, so is the frame of the 07 aniki the same as the 06, because as i get better i wanna upgrade and get better rear shocks, like the Manitou 6-Way Swinger, like the previous poster Eric Hoefer did? Sorry for the trouble i;d just rather be safe than sorry

    The 07 I think uses a slightly different shock size as well. I think it uses an 8.75X2.5 shock instead of the 9X2.5 shock. This is actually a good thing though since the 8.75" shocks are easier to come by. Especially in the Santa Cruz online store where you can pick up this size shock for $99.

    I was just thinking, and looking at my aniki. All I would need to do to to get 8 inches of travel (using a 9.5x3.0 shock) is get about a 1/4 inch more room between the seat tube and the swingarm. If I could shave a little off where the swingarm would hit the seat tube, without compromising frame strength, I could get 8 inches without the wheel hitting anything when bottomed out. If you were to mess with the mounting holes to get clearance, the wheel would hit something when you bottom out. I don't think it would hurt frame strength, although I could be wrong. I don't put much stress on the frame while sitting down, which I THINK is the only time stress is put on that area of the frame.
    Opinions?

    The Yakuza line of hardtails are really nice too, and you get much better components than a similarly priced FS bike. Since you are a beginner they will make for easier pedaling on XC type terrain where you will most likely start out to get a grasp of bike skills. Also they are very durable as well and can stand up to alot of abuse seeing they are a hardtail freeride bike. They also IMO are some really pleasing to the eye. Heres a few of them so you dont have to hunt around looking for what Im talking about:
    $600 Ironhorse Yakuza Bakuto:

    found here: http://www.rscycle.com/s.nl/it.A/id....=7&category=56

    The reason I bought my aniki was because I had a bike to ride when I had to pedal, the aniki is saved for the Lift Serviced days. Because when it comes down to it you are buying a pedaling platformless, 6" travel, single pivot, 40 something pound, freeride bike. In all honesty pedaling this thing is doable (and alot of people do) its just not desirable.
