    Update time

    Did the RAW routine on the Boxxer crowns and casting, swapped the top crown for a Hope with integrated stem, SLR-TT saddle, went down on the spring from 450 to 400 at 200mm setting. thinking of going for a solo-air cart to drop some more weight...

    exactly 16,5kg (36,38lbs)

    Super smooth rear shots - what cam did you use? Did you do any post processing to keep it so smooth?

    maybe I should call it a Ion SL

    crowns were chem stripped and then I "sanded/honed" them only in one direction with
    at 240 (sorry, don't know the english term...), then passivated them by cooking in dest. water for 2 hrs. which gave them a slight titanium shade of color.



    sorry about the delayed response, somehow don't get regular reply notifications...

    Hey ION ST owners, I've read all the info I can from the website and this thread, but I was curious of a couple measurements in real life.

    What kind of BB height and head angle are you guys getting? I'm thinking about a large with a 888 EVO Ti.

    I have since sold my Ion as I am no longer able to use it, but I made these measurements of my own, which was a large.

    HA was measuring 63.5 degrees using the Clinometer app on my iPhone and BB was coming in at a shade under 14".

    At the kind of normal speeds most of us are riding, the HA might be deemed too slack.On very steep terrain, the bike was actually a little tricky to control. I think this fashion towards super slack HAs is being driven by what the Elite boys are capable of doing and it's just not realistic for the vast majority of us riding at maybe 50-70% of their pace. IMO of course.
