    It's kinda ghetto but it works good for me when using just one front ring. I don't think it's any better than full housing though. The rear derailleur doesn't swing as much around it's main pivot with just one front ring as when you have three. I think it may bind up a bit if it were to swing any more than it does - but I may be wrong.

    This is my '05 Sin, I sold my Giant Faith after breaking my wrist downhilling & wanted something less like a battering ram. I haven't done anything much to it yet myself but have big plans; Saint cranks, gold Halo Tornado rims, Fox 36's, X.0 drivetrain.

    Hi here's a couple of pics of my fury. i'm currently running a 5th element coil while my rp3 is getting fixed. Have to say the back end is so much plusher with the coil shock. Maybe i should get the fox pushed?

    Solutions:

    1. The chip way: Buy a second hand Fury, appx 50% from original price
    2. More expansive: New Frame + second hand parts, more work to you.
    3. More Expansive: New frame + "Spluttering" of chip bike with good parts (like Mongoose Teocali Expert, Saracen, Fuji)
    4. Sale season from some shop
    5. Be positive If you wish it will come trough

    Good Luck

    I sold my kona coiler frame on ebay after i bought this frame on ebay also. got 375.00 gbp for my coiler and paid 250.00 for the fury, bargain!!!! The fury is a much better all round ride and the rear suspension is so much plusher and a lot more supple than the kona. I seen a fury frame recently on ebay that sold for 100.00 and was like new. So if you keep your eyes peeled there are definatley bargains to be had. BIG shout out to Jonny my Irish brethren!!

    I'm scrimping just to get my San Ans (Donna's) shock overhauled.

    After seeing Gus' stable of bikes, I can't imagine him without something big and red under his kilt.

    Later, Eric.

    Howdy All,

    Thought it was about time to post my San An here! It's bit Super Motard at the moment due to more urban being ridden than dirt.



    Spec (for the bits you can't see):

    Hope: Hubs, brakes, headset, rear skewer, stem.
    FSA: XC120 Carbon bars
    SRAM: X.0 rear + shifter, chain

    The shock is an old Swinger 3 Way that will be replaced with an RP23 soonish as it's not really all that great on this bike.

    This is my third San An and is a bit of a franken bike with an '00 front end mated to an '03 rear (modified to allow for the through shaft instead of the bearings). I started with a '93, back in '93, then had a 2003, which was stolen last year and finally this one. Not that I need to say it but best bikes ever made.

    I've never seen anyone match the new swingarm to the old main frame. Looks like you are running a spacer between the swingarm clamp and the pivot shaft, and continuing with the the bushing pivot.

    If I had to do it, I'd machine a plug to fill the big pivot hole in the frame, with a the center drilled and tapped for the 10mm pivot bolts and catridge bearings. Some industrial epoxy should keep the plug in place.

    How is your adapter working?

    It was a bit more complicated than that

    The swingarm was actually damaged at the clamps (long and stupid story) so was a throwaway, replaced by a new one and that was on the bike that was stolen. As I could not find a new frame at the time, we decided to do the mate.

    Basically the clamps were repaired and then a bush was made and welded into place (by a very good frame repair place). The bushes negate the need for any additional spacers and it all works nicely.

    While I liked the bearing arrangement, this was the safest option and I never really had too much of an issue with the shaft on the original.

    Hey MC Shawn, it's powder coated. Tough as nails too.

    Fury

    Here's my Fury with a new warranty replacement swingarm, which Krien summoned from somewhere because there was none in stock. Much appreciated!

    I changed it simply because the old swingarm broke in half.
