    I'll be bringing my bullit. Set up light for general all mountain riding. I'm taking off the swingarm and packing the bike in a suitcase, and will have a set of Mavic Crossrides waiting for me. Also a set of Bomber AM1 forks which I will need to install before I do any riding. Recommendations for a good bike workshop in NE Heights would be a help. I'll need them to cut the steerer tube.

    I live in the heights and can take care of the install out of my garage. Plenty of trails to keep a smile on your face

    Yes I do. You do not need a shock pump for the AM 1, unless it is the SL. Either way, I have an SL and I can also help you set it up. The pressures recommended by the factory are incorrect. We will get ya goin'.

    Make sure you have the base plate/crown race for your headset, a starnut or stemlock, and the appropriate spacers.

    hi folks. Just heading down to the Taos/Santa Fe/Los Alamos area next weekend. Only plan is one night at ojo caliente. Wondering about rides to do with the gf toward ojo, maybe camping in that vicinity as well?

    Looking at 8-15 mile rides, moderate to pumping climbs, cruisy singletrack more than technical drops.

    Thanks for any advice.

    There's that Performance Bike employee knowledge deficit again.

    The AM1 is one side air and one side coil, and does require a shock pump.

    I never even noticed it on mine before I converted to the SL. Either way I have a shock pump and if he needs it he is welcome to use it.

    I've just had a closer look at the specs of the fork I bought. I thought it was probably an air fork due to the 5 pound weight. Turns out it is probably identical internally to my existing fork which is an '05 Z1FR with 20mm axle. When I set that up I just let all the air out, as even with 5psi in there it was oversprung for my weight. I've slammed it into the ground nice and hard without it bottoming harshly. Anyway, setting up this new fork should be a no-brainer. It's gonna be interesting to see how much flex there is in the steering. I've grown to rely on the directness of the 20mm set-up.
    I'll have all the bits I need and the exact measurement of the steerer etc. We'll have to shim up the brakes for the new hubs. Does anyone have a Hope brake mount facing tool? It makes a big difference in getting the brakes running true and quiet.

    Interesting. I just bought a formula brake mount for my XTR 180mm rotor and it is far from quiet. Do you know if they can face the formula mounts also? Maybe you can look at it for me.

    It's the IS mounts on the fork that you face. Not an issue on post mount as far as I can see. The IS tabs on my Z1 fork took quite a lot of facing. Hope make a jig that clamps in the dropouts (regular or 20mm) and it has guide holes to mount a rose cutter that faces the tabs. You would be amazed at how far out of true they are from the factory. It probably isn't an issue for brakes that use a mounting bracket, but my Hopes mount directly to the tabs.
    My brakes run a lot quieter than my brother's Hope brakes, and my tabs are faced and his aren't. My local bike mechanic has one of these. I was vaguely wondering if any local Abq mechanics had one. Not really a big deal though.

    Why swing by an overpriced IBD (all IBD's are overpriced after all) like Fat Tire. Why not just go to Performance. Surely they have all the right tools and training.

    Hmmm seems that my reply struck a nerve. Though it was an (couched) honest question.

    BFWIW, I didn't start this OT section of the thread, I just replied to it.
