    This is the question: Why? How? The swingram is strong construction

    It took less than a year's worth of normal XC/AM riding and *snap* No big drops or other kinds of abuse. TWISTED mentioned something about a weaker batch of swingarms (see this), it was probably one of those. This new arm will hopefully be as strong as it should be.

    my Moho STS! I've decided it needs some discs so the noleen and spinergys are gonna have to go soon. sure the fork has limited travel, and the rims have been known to kill people, but its been a good ride so far

    Is that a Girvin Fork?
    I mean, I know its built by Noleen, but I was trying to remember if Girvin designed it.

    Yup, its a Girvin design. In fact they made this exact fork (same colors, shock, everything) but instead of saying Noleen on the legs it said Girvin. Much different design that the old crappy Girvin Vector's...the Crosslink ELT was the newest (and last) gen. design. Noleen bought them out somewhere along the way but kept the design. They also made these with carbon legs and the K2 smart shock.

    I can remember when people thought a bike like that was a "Down hill race bike".

    My new Zen

    This is my new Zen. I'm yet to really ride it (Wisc winter and all). I have a minute 3 on the front (100 mm) and a Fox float on the back. The wheels are XT/mavic717 and I'm running it as 1x8 just to keep things simple.

    Nice Rides db840
    How do you like the X Fusion Air? They look like a nice alternative to the big brands, but I haven't seen much info about them.

    The X-Fusion shock is pretty good. Better than I expected. It is like any other air shock really. Not the best for small bumps due to stiction, but very good every where else. I like the fact I can lock it out. They can usually be bought pretty cheap if you find one which makes them a good deal. Both rebound and compression damping are adjusted with one lever, meaning if you increase rebound, you increase compression as well. Simple and works better you would think.I would buy one again if I could. No "stuck down" like a Fox air shock.
