    Me likey!
    I love the red!
    Did you get that done by Knolly or somewhere else? And if somewhere else did you start with a raw frame?

    I am also interested on your thoughts on how the 1x10 gearing rides. I have been looking into that recently, with the same gearing, and I'm not sure I would like losing my granny gear for where and how I ride (long sustained, sometimes, steep climbs).

    I like the red too. But if you are going for ghetto street (nothing but the headbadge), you need to take those stickers off the FOX fork. I like it

    It was originaly raw but i had the front powder coated by a local company and I polished the rear. I was able to save the head badge but the decals were toast. I was ridding a 1X9 for the longest time without any real problems getting up hills with the 34 in the rear but the 36 on the 10 spd cassette makes a big difference, a very low gear. Before i made the leap a couple of years ago i locked out my front derailure for a couple of rides to see if i could manage with just one ring up front.

    Lovely bikes indeed!

    I'm a little confused though - the medium frames, some have a top tube brace some don't. Is this to do with year? Pre 2010, the med's have no brace and thereafter they do? Can someone clarify this for me please.

    Size small and medium frames do not have the brace. Size large and anything bigger do

    Definitely like the looks of the Vivid Air. But being a heavy giant has me a little worried about committing to getting one.

    I am also curious about your drive train set-up. I've been looking at the Hammerschmidt for a while now. How has it changed the way you ride?
    Where and how do you ride? I ask because then I can compare to where and how I ride being that I'm on an XL Delriium.

    well the hammerschmidt is so nice to have. it shifts whenever you want to shift even when you are not pedaling. and also the hammerschmidt will be in aligned with any teeth or the rear drivetrain. my set up for the hammerschmidt is 22 - 36. so lets say. i can be on a 22 T front and 36 t rear, to a 36 T front and 36 T rear. any any combination in a flick of the front shifter.
    i ride here in Orange County California. i'm a trail rider and do some technical downhill stuff. some shuttle runs and mammoth bike park stuff. nothing crazy though. coming from an endorphin, a 2 lb penalty on climbs is worth it with the pay off on downhills

    When has it ever not had mud?

    Did you actually clean it to weigh it? Nice camera work, I especially like the bag of fertilizer.

    Hehe - it is well ridden and loved...

    Actually, I have been washing it more, just not as much as you and Dom! I wash it when the dirt is a bit sandy and I can hear the drivetrain crunching.

    Pictures were taken today with the droid camera! I didn't place the phone in my bag - duh - there would have been some epic shots in the sunlight piercing through the redwoods and illuminating the misty steam.

    I figured I would change it up a bit and post of picture of a dirty delirium in the build thread.

    Fertilizer - girlfriend loves to garden - flowers and fresh veggies. I better build my dirt jump before it becomes a flower bed!!!

    Love the picture!

    Reminds me of my whole winter. Great looking Delirium. Those Arachnids look DEADLY! I know it's $, but yuou could reduce the chainslap by going to a small or medium cage RD. It might be a Med cage already, just looks long. Studly build!

    Good looking steed!

    Love the brown Chromag saddle. Weight seems a little light for that build!?

    Updates and pics

    Decided to change out a few things...Put the black wheel set on the Delirium and the white set will go on the Endorphin SL. Pulled the 80mm stem and installed a 70mm. The 80 should work better on the SL. Also added Point One podium pedals in raw. Also swapped on a Chromag seat clamp and removed the Salsa. The Chromag is heavier but works better in muddy conditions.

    Finally got a rare dry day and headed out to Sandy Ridge...

    Edit: After spending some time on the 70mm stem I will go back to the 80mm. The 70mm stem makes it too difficult to loft the front end when I need to. The Point One pedals are very nice and grippy, but they are too wide for me. I keep sticking the edges of the pedals into things. I guess 15 years on skinny Speedplay pedals has me spoiled.

    My new to me Delirium. Should look familiar, it is Force Yoda's old frame, somehow my pictures came out more orange. But it is definitely Red.

    Also thanks to BrickBrick for letting me take a parking lot test of his medium. Had I not ridden it, I would have made a mistake and gotten a large!

    Frame: Medium 2010 Delirium
    Fork: Fox 36 RC2 180
    Shock: Fox RP2
    Wheels: Mavic 819 laced to I9 Enduro Hubs
    Headset: Cane Creek Angelset 1°
    Tires: Spec Captain
    Brakes: Hayes Stroker Trail
    Bar: Easton Havoc DH 750mm
    Cranks: Shimano XT
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Acid
    Shifter: 1x10 Shimano XT
    Front Chainring: 30 tooth Extralite, I have to pedal to get to the good stuff.
    Cassette: XT 12-36
    Seatpost: Thompson
    Seat: WTB Rocket
    Chainguide: LG 1+

    This is the AM setup. I got a lot of strange looks riding a AM/FR bike today at our local XC trails in Charlotte, NC. This is rigid singlespeed 29er, kool aid drinking country!

    I have a Totem Coil, CC Double Barrel (on its way) and I9 EN Rims laced to I9 Hubs with Maxxis tires for lift assisted or shuttle days.

    I am glad I got a medium. It was surprising how well it rode on the cross country trails for being 64°! Fire road climbs were no problem even with the TALAS at 180. Steep techy uphills were a bear, but once I dropped the TALAS to 140 I made it with ease.

    I am really, surprised at how well it does pedal. Now I need to get it to some proper downhill trails.

    Out of curiosity, did you measure that HA or just assume thats what it was? I am going to be getting an angleset for mine as well and would like it to be around 64 degrees. It would save a lot of money if I only had to buy the 1 degree one instead of the other ones.

    Im only asking because even in the slackest setting the bike is 65 degrees with a 180 fork and im not sure if they measured that with an external or internal headset. If the latter then the 1 degree Angleset would probably only net about a half degree.

    I measured the HA with a triangle/slide rule that Pipe Fitters use for industrial piping. I wouldn't say that it is the absolute most nats a$$ accurate though. But it was reading just under 64 for me. I am also running two different size tires, front is a bit bigger than the back, that will alter it as well.

    With that said, if you order direct from Cane Creek you can buy just the 1° or the 1.5° degree headset. That is what I did and it worked out well.

    If you order just the top cap it is 23 bucks plus shipping. Your LBS should be able to do the same if they are worth a crap. Mine is not.

    I would call Cane Creek.

    Pay attention to the link you gave me when you install. It will save a lot of headache

    AMAZING^ Almost exactly what my dream Delirium would be!

    P.S. Please let us know what you think of the Monarch+, I'm interested in one for my 575, and possibly my new bike I will hopefully be building in the near future.

    How does the short cage handle that cassette range?

    I have both a medium cage and short cage for my new delirium, was going to put the medium cage on but if the short cage can handle all the chain I might go with that.

    no issues with the short cage...handles the whole range!

    i'm very impressed with the monarch plus, if it gets any better with mileage the thing is just mindblowing. it was a first ride for me after a couple of months, and i was on a hardtail for a few rides before that, so this maybe the reason for the excitement...i'll have to go out on my coil delirium to get a reference point.

    Still my favourite bike of all time. Rode it yesterday after being on my Jedi for a month in South Africa and I was blown away by how resonsive the Delerium felt. It is so plush when it needs to be, great BO and then almost no bob under power, even with 33% sag, amazing. Jumps and corners perfectly. The Jedi was great on the DH but really wallows under full power. Not a problem on DH to maintain speed but not fun pedalling to trails etc. Cant wait for the weekend, trail has been prepped and tweak. Photos were taken last year but I just never posted. Only real change is the seat, running a black Transition and I have an adjustable post few milage rides(dont use it much). New Blackspire Raw pedals fitted now. Also have a Lyrik solo air 160mm I picked up off CRC in 2009, crazy bargain. Doing the floodgate mod this week and will be dropping in a 170mm springkit, of coarse no grease in the seals but at least there was oil in it. This will be my backup fork cause even the Totem gets punished so the lyrik may be under gunned. WIll test it next week. Guess thats about it. The bike does all the talking in my house.
