    wheelgunz: What changes did you make?

    Is anybody else considering changing the Conti X-Kings? I'm not a big fan of them.

    What do you think is a fair price to pay for a new 2011?

    Thanks.

    If anyone with the orange Spearfish two isn't getting along with the stock saddle and wants to sell it, I'd be glad to buy it from you. Pm me please.

    Sweet builds!

    Full suspension is a bit overboard for this trail but it sure smooths out those horse hoof prints from last Fall that the equestrians were kind enough to leave. Man, what a great bike!





    I haven't done much to my '11 Spearfish, just the WTB Pure seat and Salsa Bend Bar 17 degree bar. And, yes, flat pedals.

    Only complaint I have thus far is the placement of the bottle cage being two low, and the omission of a 2nd cage on the seattube. If you move the DT cage up you could put a side loader on the ST w/o much rigging. I am thinking about doing this and I do realize it would void the warranty, but the bike would become far more functional.


    Are these the 2.35 Rampages tubeless? Ive read great reviews on this tire but didn't think they would fit. Any issues?

    Here's one from Boise, Idaho

    Mostly stock with a few minor changes. Only complaint so far are the brakes. They seem to overheat on longer descents.

    This thread is making me drool as I await my first new mtn bike since the mid 90's (Trek 970, since stolen). Can't wait till the orange machine arrives!

    Thanks fj. They are Racing Ralphs 2.4 tubeless ready. Super light tire at the expense of sidewall durability. I got them to seat tubeless but ended up slicing the sidewalls enough that they wouldn't seal back up so now I am running tubes. If Schwalbe ever comes out with a 2.4 Racing Ralph with Snakeskin sidewalls I will be the first in line. The tires are super fast and corner unbelievably well. I am a huge fan of large volume tires and even with the sidewall durability I won't run a different tire.

    I just bought my Spearfish 1 frame, but it will be weeks before build is complete. Does anyone also have a Mamasita and can compare cockpit geometry? Did you use same stem and bar on your Spearfish and get same fit as on Mamasita?

    I do have both but I can't answer yet becuse I only have the SF1 frame and I'm taking everything off the Mamasita and putting it on the SF1 for now and then I'm going to take everything off my Haro Ally 1x9 and put that stuff on the Mamasita. I am going to start doing all this next week,I first have to take my Reba Race in and have it turned up to 100mm. I don't know about the geometry numbers I haven't looked but it's going to come down to how it feels to you on my Sita I like a 100mm steam and on the Haro and on the El Mar I had I liked the 90mm steam.

    Now for the bars,again it's going to be up to you, I have had the Aluminum Salsa flat 11deg bend I liked them but sold the bike they where on they where wider than the Salsa pro moto carbon11deg flats but my hands go to sleep and that's with any kind of grips,on my Ally bike I have the Salsa pro moto carbon riser and that is the bar that I like the most my hands don't fall asleep as fast,I'm 52 almost and have a bad shoulder,I was running my stems -5 but now I have them set at +5. All of this could change when I get the fish built -up,you might see a pic of it on here with -5 on the stem and flat bars so with all that this is where you & I are at we wont know till we get them built.

    you should be able to figure that out from the geometry chart on the website. i expect to transfer the stem/bar combo i have from my mariachi to fish without any changes. assuming i get the same frame size....

    Geo chart for cockpit dims are identical for Spearfish and Mamasita, except the assumed fork length. I've read that the Spearfish steers slower and I know my Mamasita has the old school too-fast and tuck under steering. To me this means the Spearfish could use narrower bar and shorter stem. But, I'm staying with exact copy of my Mamasita. I'm not super picky about fit and my body can adjust a bit if needed. On the Mamasita I do have to scoot back in the saddle on steep climbs and I really hope they've cured that on the Spearfish.

    Good stuff in here keep em coming. screw it I'm jumping on board. Been riding 29r HTs exclusively for the last 3 seasons but I'm ready to get back into the FS game. A #1 or 2 with the fsa orbitz angleset to slacken out the front a bit may just be the ticket.

    Recommendation on the Monarch is that riders above 200lbs should run psi @ 90% of body weight.
    Seems pretty spot on for me. I'm @ 250lbs kitted up.

    About a year ago there was a thread called "Spearfish has landed" and the guys at 918XC (now Hammer Head bikes) had one built up as a single speed. It must not have been what they were looking for, because it was torn down and re-assembled with the original build kit, then sold as a demo, which I bought. If you are curious I'm sure you could give them a call and ask for some details.

    Here is mine back to normal, meaning I got rid of the 11* flat bar and went back to my LowRise XC bars:

    Just need to get around to selling this wheelset and building a "race" one and it should be all done!

    From what it looks like this bike can easily be a 26lb FS 29er. Salsa claims the stock 2 to be about 27lbs does anyone know of that includes the tubes?

    I'm 5' 10" with a 30" inseam and monkey arms would a medium work? Only thing left in stock in the state and it's 2hr away so don't want to make the drive to test it if it's not feasible.
