    Geometry wise my AM could do with a shorter fork than the 160 Fox 36 because it makes the bb a little high and the seat angle a little slack... the head angle however is perfection so I've slid the seat toward on the rails and will continue to ride the hell out of it.

    @TLR - forget the frame - that`s not issue now - IŽd like to get good opinions about coil forks

    edit: Let`s imagine that the frame is the first one prototype of RFX 2011 in Europe

    Have got the frame in the box. The CC is sold too this week, so just need to finish getting all the parts together and will post something up. If I get a chance will post up some pics of the frame in the next couple of days.

    Nice. Do you take the parts off the CC? What colour is the AC?

    Testmaen, as usual with these projects was going to take most parts from the CC, but...well, on the last ride on the CC doing the Nan Bield pass in the Lake District I broke the mechanism on the rear shifter, and with the cassette and chain well worn and the chain rings gone, decided to change the drive train - am considering going 1x10 with a chain device, but haven't decided exactly what yet.

    Other stuff will be 2010 Float 140mm (been on the CC for a shortwhile but bought originally for the AC), Hope tech V2's (going to sell the Marta's), getting some new wheels built - will be Chris Kings and probably a Stans rim of some sort (going to sell my I9's). Got a RP23 BV for the rear. Stem, seat post is Thomson stuff coming over from the CC. Hope headset to facilitate fork changing and a CK BB.

    Colour - well will have to wait until I post up the frame! Will try and do that today....

    Nick-o-lai,

    your CC is a "L", right ? Is the AC a "L" too ?

    Ian - they are straight pull hubs laced onto Arch rims. QR15 front, QR rear. Recently re-built and never ridden, so basically new (hubs in good nick)

    Testmaen - yes, that's right. All mine are large, fit me like a glove.

    The hubs/wheels? They are black. Spokes are black too, with two red ones either side of the valve holes.

    FYI:

    Just had a look at the 2011 spreadsheet of the Helius AC and some (minor) things have changed:

    - shock size: 200x57mm
    - travel: 154/142/132/122 mm

    Also:

    The order-generator says, that the 29er AC is 2049 €, standard 26er is 1849 €.

    Is this the new link with "B" on it or something different?

    Hmm, ok, haven't seen this thread/post.

    Yeah, than this seems to be some kind of lever modification. I just noticed today surfing the N homepage, that there are some new tech-sheets and was rather surprised to see a new shock spec. for the AC.

    Haven't read about it on the German board, though. Maybe one of those "evolution, instead of revolution" modifications. Would have been nice though, to read it more "officially", instead of finding it deep, deep in the manual.

    An Ac interests me ,Definitely with a longer stroke shock,Would only want 130ish travel but would like a coil,And i weigh 225lbs so longer stroke=lighter spring.
    I was surprised it wasn't specced with a 200x57 from the beginning.

    Have you thought about the new Van RC ?

    It's a new coil-shock from Fox with rebound/compression adjustement only. Afaik also without pro-pedal. I think it's a nice option, if you don't want to go full-CCDB.
