    next time I'm out riding I'll take some better pics the shadows play tricks, this was at ringwood nj, that pic next to the post is nice rocky climb and after is some really nice rockier sections. the dorado is great, still messing some settings I put on some weight and she starting to dive some, just a touch more air or tpc should fix that, she is very good, almost like a ccbd with very good settings. it's the fork that was ment for the wfo9. I also changed out the answer dh one negative rise stem I had, I didn't like the way I was positioned, it's now forsale, looking for a positive rise direct mount stem now.

    My WFO9 is so light I can't keep it on the dirt!!





    Thinking I probably shouldn't list up that photo when I sell the bike.



    I've made a few changes since that pic....new Fox Fork..CCDBair, new wheels, Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires.......great riding rig.



    I've gotta say...the thing climbs like a billy goat....

    David8613,

    How do you keep your Hammerschmidt so clean?

    Mine looks more like your chain with the dirt on it...

    I cracked my ribs on an over the handlebars fall...haven't been riding for four weeks...my left ribs still hurt when I breathe deep (supposedly there was no fracture).

    After seeing your pics and then seeing David's pic of the CCDB Air, I'm wondering if you can comment on how you like running in on you WFO? I have a WFO, that I don't have a CCDB Air on, but I also just built up a Knolly Chilcotin that does have a CCDBA on it. On my Chili, the CCDBA is amazing, although not the easiest to dial in. Dude at my LBS seemed to think that the CVA suspension wasn't worth running a CCDBA on. I've been running a DHX Air 5 on my WFO and have been pretty happy with it, but now seeing how good the CCDBA on my Chili is, I've been playing with idea of an upgrade myself. While I've liked the DHX Air thus far for what I'm riding, you can't really compare it at all to the DB air. Just curious to hear what folks thought.

    My opinion is that a 120 mm fork would really limit the potential of the bike. Bigger is better. I put a Manitou Dorado Pro 175 mm travel on and am really impressed with the capability of both the bike and the fork with that combination for the rough stuff. Probably depends on what type of trails YOU ride.

    New addition to the family ... I think she'll workout just fine. Everything is as I would like except the fork ... probably upgrade to 140 ... that will be more than enough for how and what I plan to ride. I am digging the color !!!

    Random question for the WFO experts: Is it possible to run an 8.5 x 2.5 shock with a lot of sag? I would think the extra length plus extra travel, would sort of split the difference vs. just adding a longer travel 7.875 shock (which I know doesn't exist).

    7.875 - 2.25 = 5.625 compressed shock length
    8.5 - 2.5 = 6 compressed shock length

    So I guess the only question would be whether the frame "tops out" just past the stock shock length, or if it has some extra "growth" capacity built in. From the photo above, it looks like it has room. But my Kona does also, and it binds almost immediately past 7.875 eye to eye.

    Thoughts? I know the BB would rise considerably. The thought would be toward a long travel AM build with a Dorado. I'm 6'1, 230# and don't mind a chunky bike.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Question answered via PM - no. Rear triangle will collide.

    WFO in its natural habitat.

    Couple of photo's of my WFO in its natural habitat. First is next to the biggest tree I saw along the Willamette River trail near Oakridge, OR. The bike measures 75 inches from end to end. I estimated the Douglas-fir tree to be about 8 feet or more in diameter.

    The second is the bike at the saddle at 9,600' between E. Fork Hayden Creek and Mill Creek overlooking Mill Creek lake in the Lemhi Mtn Range of Idaho. Sure do like this bike.

    Anyone have any hot tips on where to find good deals on a '12 Wfo frame? I'm looking around but my google-fu is letting me down. While I'm at it, anyone know if niner does a trade-in/up program?

    Hey kitejumping - nice video. You must have missed the memo about it being inpossible to manual 29ers, especially one with such long chainstays...

    I haven't heard of a trade in/up program at Niner....but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    The guys at Bike Bling hooked up a friend of mine with her new RDO...you might want to check them out:

    Well I have my new WFO build up and running.

    As you may have guessed, the trails are a little wet at the moment



    I took it out for a ride with the local road bike club on Wed. Surprisingly got almost no comments!

    Kept up with them fine. The 6" travel was also useful for the pot holes too =-)
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    This years Fox 34 will adjust out to 150mm, I'm not sure if the Talas can be done aswell.

    Yes, you can adjust the 34 to 150. But. The damper shaft isn't QUITE long enough so there is a possibility that your fork won't work properly if you perform the surgery. The good thing is that you will likely determine on the first ride if it doesn't work (loss of rebound damping I think?) and instead of doing the whole Roll Pin removal and installation again you can simply put a spacer on top. Even a 5mm spacer would solve the problem which would leave you at 145mm.

    Here is the latest incarnation of the Rig. Float 34 150mm (home job, working great) with Race Face Extravaganza and XTR. Busted rear Carbon Rim from Light Bicycle is holding together for the moment.

    This bike continues to amaze. It's replaced my Transition TR 250 as my favorite park bike.

    Hahaha, thanks! It is definitely harder to manual than my killswitch but by no means impossible. Ditto for trials riding. The 34 at 150 is a sweet setup and those Niners are looking good, especially that last one.

    This was a great race, if you have the chance it's well worth it. WFO was a bit much for the pedally stages but was great in the DH and jump line stages.

    Sweet! I switched from a RIP to a WFO last summer so I could check out some Enduro races. Glad to see it being used for that.
