    You say you've been "riding it for approx. 4 years now," but your frame looks like the 2003 version. How is that?

    I think he meant the post before yours

    Biker10 posted a pic of an ano orange with the updated rear triangle.

    Looks to me like the rear end is the only "new" part. The front triangle has the straight top tube, which means it's pre-2002.

    Originally got bike in '99 in '01 I dinged the front triangle and replaced it under crash replacement, then in '03 I found cracks on the rear triangle and had the rear triangle replaced. I figured someone would point out that the SL didn't have disc tabs 4 years ago. Good eyes.

    how does that 5th ride?

    Is that a new Superlight, or did you upgrade the shock recently?
    Have you had a lot of problems with the shock? And what is with the color? I like it but I haven't seen it before.
    Thanks.

    It's an '03, been riding her for more than a year now. And I've been riding it with 5th airs since the beginning. It's a progressive test bike and that's a proto nickel plated 5th air. We showed them at interbike last year but there's durability issues with nickel plating so for now its not going to make it into production. There's only two functioning nickel shocks left, that one and the one I built for my blur project bike. I pushed hard for them to produce them but anodizing is proven and nickel is not. If you want it, call and say you saw it at interbike and want to know when it's coming out. Maybe if there's enough interest they (management) will make it happen.

    How does it ride?

    I take it that you work for progressive. I have heard that there has been a lot of problems with the shock. How does the riding of the Blur and Superlight compare?
    I was thinking about upgrading but seems like a lot for a shock that has had a lot of problems.

    Let's put it this way. I've been riding the Superlight and love it, but I'm building for myself a Blur (also nickel shock )

    the 5th air has had a few startup problems but most are behind us and the rest have solutions that are in process. The precentage of warranty returns are pretty low, higher than we'd like, but reasonable for a new product. One MAJOR issue has been consumer education. Over half the air leak and oil leak warranty reaturns were for shocks that have nothing wrong with them. You may know, that when you remove the pump from the IFP chamber there's no air loss, but when you reinstall the pump, due to the small IFP volume, the air entering the pump, filling the hose and guage cause a significant pressure loss (20-50%, it varies). Also, the "oil" on the strut of the shock was a clear super slippery assembly grease that has the consistency of honey and would slowly weep past the negative air seals. We've since made strides to educate consumers regarding proper air fill procedures, and we've changed greases that we lube our air seals with. For the record, it has been months since I've checked the air in my shock and it still works perfectly. I loose air in my tires faster than my shock. On the superlight, I run 110psi in the main chamber, and 50-60 in the IFP. I'm 6'2" 190#...

    Once again...

    Same frame/fork as I posted above, but she's got some new bits:

    King + 717disc rear wheel
    Hope XC + 717disc front wheel
    Black Thomson post and stem (moved the silver ones to my Surly)
    Easton Monkeylite 1.5" carbon riser
    WTB Mutano 2.14 front tire
    Conti Vertical Pro rear tire

    Have no clue what she weighs, but she sure looks and rides pretty!

    So.... how did you get the ding in the front triangle?

    I just was checking mine out, I think I need new bearings, the rear end feels loose! At least they'll be new for MBW'04. I think I'm going to get a set of MINI's before the trip too.

    What year is my superlight?

    Hi, I picked up my anodized orange superlight a few weeks back at a local bike shop.
    It was sold used, but looks almost brand new. The owner did not know the year of
    the bike. It has disc brake tabs at the rear, non replaceable derailer hanger.
    I hope you experts can give me some info about the superlight I bought.
    Gary
