    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!

    QBP sells the Salsa-branded Silverado separately and there are plenty of them on eBay too. Here's one: WTB Silverado Pro Saddle Salsa Branded | eBay

    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.

    Avid Elixir XX Carbon brakes are on their way!

    Haven't been too happy with the Elixir 5s.

    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?
