My brother-in-law is riding a demo '04 Niota AL with XT disk kit which he will probably buy. We don't have the manual or any info, though.
If you're riding a Niota, what pressure are you running in the rear shock (Float AVA RL)? He's about 160 lb and is only using about 2/3 of the travel at 120 psi. I just dropped it down to 110 psi, so he'll try that next. We are running it at the high volume (low rate) setting.
The bike has a Vanilla 100 fork, and we've only tried it at the 4" travel setting. Anyone try it at 5" with a 100mm fork? We may try putting my TALAS 125 fork on it, since I have a Maverick fork coming for my bike.
What do you do for pivot maintainance on the Niota? Any reliability issues?
