    Belated merry xmas all...

    I've had a pair of NDee's on my Gambler for the last year. Didnt get as much riding done as liked too but ive given them a good bash at weekends in the UK and rode them a fair bit in my 4 weeks in Switzerland.

    They are PLUSH as hell. Consistent stroke, sit high in their travel, dont dive and are very responsive. I've ridden my fair share of forks and of think the Ndee is superior to the lot (old 66, Totem, 888, 40's, Fox Van & Talas 36) - to be fair the majority of those forks I only rode on 1 or 2 runs so I have them set up the exact way I like them. They are also very stiff and flex free. I think the perfect description for them is as BOS describes them, a mini DH fork, same internal suspension as their dual crown cut down 20mm and put into a single crown: they feel more like a downhill fork cut down than 20mm added to a Talas, Van or Lyric if that makes sense.

    One thing which impressed me about them is their reliability. They feel better than they did a year ago. My bike had been standing on its head in the shed for a solid month until i went for a ride yesterday and they felt perfect. I havent taken them apart but just from the way the ride they feel reliable

    The reviews praise highly of their performance, mine rides brilliantly and the only issue is price. I luckily got them from someone who had one them and wasnt interested in them so I got them at a very good price. If you can afford an Ndee i highly recomend it.

    Ill post pics later although they will be on a Scott

    Goo to know... I have one of the RLT Ti Dual Pos-Air. I figured it would be ~1900grsm but now I figure it has to be more like 1850 with the cut steerer. Not bad for 150mm and certainly an improvement over the 2100'ish Pike.

    But... at 2060 for 160mm and the quality of BOS damping, that Deville sounds like a winner.
    I wish I could shell out the money for one. They also come in 140mm flavour.

    Oh, well... even if mine are ~1900grs, they're definitively lighter than the old Pike and have more travel.

    I haven't measured mine... I don't have a scale, I mostly go by claimed weights when I want to factor weight.

    Pikes were very heavy,but indestructable.I borrowed a set off my mate for a few months,they were like a ships anchor.

    Just sold my last set or I'd measure them for you. Maybe Sam or rpm100(although he won't get his till tomorrow) can measure theirs for you?

    R53 sell to the trade. You may have a dealer close by(there's a list of dealers on the r53 site) but if not give me a shout and I'll sort you out.

    Including headset change, what would an AC of increase of 24/25mm do to my BB height? Can't find the geo site I was on about before

    It's about 1/3 but that's very ish! so probably 8mm, but then you have to take into account of the same sag per stroke, and therefore greater drop by % so it's probably more like 25% so therefore 6-7mm if you ride accordingly not a disaster.

    Would void the warranty on an AC frame.
    i would have thought it would raise it by about 10-12mm,it would slacken the head angle aswell.

    Ment AC (axle crown) increase, not on a AC sorry, my bikes an AM (I know the headset increase isn't part of the AC measurement but bottom bit will affect my BB height and I was being lazy with my sentence )

    It will slacken the HA a bit on an AM.I think thats the reccomended AC height for an AM
    I thought you had an AC to be honest.
