    xcandy, It's a steal for $575!

    I suggest that you ride your Ace for a while and really get a good feel of it before changing stuff.

    Congratulations!

I adjusted the handle bars and components, saddle, bought a pump and air up the shocks when I got home and took it for a ride. man oh man... It felt great.

    At first I thought it seemed a bit big but after adjusting the bars to where they should be (for me) and saddle, it's a near perfect fit. Again, I haven't ridden in many years so there is a lot for me to learn and eventually fine tune.

    It hink the first thing to go are the stem and handle bars. I'd like a lower angle.

    Only thing was the the rear wheel wasn't to spec. Instead of a Mavic MX 719, it was a Mavic XM 717 with XT hub... Looks like it was replaced cause even the cassette has no sign of dirt or anything, straight from the box even...

    What do you guys think? Did I still make the right choice on this bargain?

    Also, thanks to all of you who gave your tips and suggestions. for sure I am going to be a regular fan of this forum. It's all so helpfull.

    Thanks,
    xcandy

    p.s. I'll post some photos soon of the bike in the condition when I received it.
    Considering the condition of the bike and the price you paid. You practically stole it.

    Rims?

    Hi guys and thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Definitely going to ride it for a while before tinkering with parts

    Excuse my ignorance, but I am trying to learn and this seems to be a great source.

    Question:

    As I mentioned earlier.. The only thing that didn't match were the rims. The front wheel is the stock Mavic XM 719 disc with Shimano XT hub

    Rear is a Mavic XC 717 disc with Shimano XT (FH-M765), new cassette and Hayes brake disc.

    What's the difference? Is one better than the other?

    It's possible that the man I bought if from might still have the original wheel and swapped it. Do I have any reason to try and get that one (rear XM 719 disc) back for the rear?

    Tell me your thoughts.

    also, here are some photos. taken today

    Hey is that the fork seals sticking out of your fork? Check that out and make sure the fork has the proper amount of oil in it. Also reposition the your rear quick release lever so it points up and back...That way trail demons can't grab and open it.

    Thanks LordDRIFT! I've since repositions the fork seals and checked the oil. The photos were taken of the bike exactly as I received it before laying a finger on it. thanks again for looking out.

    Can you shed some knowledge on my earlier question regarding the mix match rims?

    You can research the parts for specs. Personally I wouldn't worry about it. The wheel and cassette looks brand new. If it truly bothers you, you could ask the guy if something catastrophic happened back there - really something that should have been done before money changed hands. You already stole the bike, so if the frame looks okay I wouldn't sweat it.

    Got it! Yeah, I'm not too worried about it. I knew it was a steal so mainly i checked the frame.. I saw that the rear wheel was different but looked new and didn't mention it in case the other wheel was damaged, then have him realize he was giving me the wrong one. haha... Either way, I plan to completely go through the bike in more details before taking it on the trails. i.e. checking the shocks as you suggested...

    (seemed to be a little water mixed in the oil)

    if you need oil try a motorcycle shop. you will probably need 5wt.

    Facelessfools, thanks for the tip.... will do that for sure... any kind you recommend? I wil also need a 15wt according to the manual... need both 5 and 15 wt for upper and lower..

    As lordDrift pointed out... the fork seals were off for some reason... and i noticed some water.. then i tried compressing the shocks a few times and got kinda creamy, telling me there was water mixing. Think some water seeped in from whatever...

    Thanks to everyone in this forum....

    Cool, just got an email from the guy I bought it from and he said:

    "The shocks have never been serviced but have never suffered a jump or big bumps
    Try some trails before you do any servicing ... I'm sure you won't need anything
    I maintained the bike well and check all the pressures and kept it lubricated"


    As I expected, nothing major.... Its more about me learning how to ride again.

    From what you describe water has breached the seals.. Do at least the upper and lowers with the 5wt...More than likely the damper assembly should be fine so I wouldn't go messing with that just yet.

    Also, no one has mentioned that you have a non-stock road cassette (11-26?) on the rear wheel. Not a big deal, but you won't have the low gearing range of a mtb cassette (11-32 or 11-34)

    Good point.. it's an (11-24) actually. I spoke the previous owner and he told me he swapped with one of his students as the swap made sense for their riding styles. Previous owner did mostly flat trails and hardly ever hit a bump, let alone a jump. Nonetheless, the rear wheel is completely new.

    when you get the oil the higher end stuff will stay more consistent longer and wont foam up but you shouldn't have a problem with whatever you get.

    Where did you get this info from?

    The little overpriced fork oil bottles sold at bike shops is re-bottled and relabeled stuff you use for motorcycles and other applications. Rockshox or Fox do not manufacture oil.

    All very good info.. However to clarify, I think facelessfools was referring to oils purchased direct from a motorcycle shop.. He recommended going to a MC shop for it in a much earlier thread.

    All in all it funny how bike shops will even carry a marked up product knowing that its the same stuff you can get at a MC shop for much less price and larger quantity... The bike shop here in Santa Cruz was pretty good and told me the truth as well and recommended I did the same.

    i did mention the moto shop, thanks candy.
    i doubt there is any difference in feel between the quality of oil's.

    i had a RS fork recomend 15wt only as a lubricant on the foam inserts in the wiper seals and for the shaft that has the dampening piston to be lubed, you can use 5wt for it and it does the same thing.
    RAH!

    I bought a 20.5" Ace frame and is due to arrive by the next week. It will replace my Sonix LT. Hope I have some time to get it ready by the end of the week.

    Was a little uncertain about the right size for me, I'm around 6.05" and my Sonix 18" has about 599mm of virtual top tube. From what I read the 20.5" Ace has 615mm. Did I make the right choice?? (not that it would make any difference now that the frame was already purchased, eehheh)

    the more I ride mine (large ) the happier I am with it. you can always get a smaller stem to shorten it up a bit.

    You are right, there's always the stem to shorten a bit. I'm using a 100mm one now, will try the bike with it and see how it goes.

    I just can't wait for it to arrive, been dealing with UPS's bureaucracy for a week and now it's finally coming.

    Thx.

    It's home. UPS was really fast on this one, arrived 1 day after paying the taxes.




    Weight 2495g, not bad at all for a 20.5" frame.


    I'm really impressed with the overall quality, not even a scratch. Will start the build tomorrow, long day ahead, eheheheh.

    Thank you all for the support.

    Ready at last.



    I'm using a XT front derailleur and found that the cable bolt is almost impossible to tighten when the derailleur is at the smallest chainring. Did anybody run into that problem?

    depends...
    id say get the bike to fit you just right first.
    so: stem length, bar width, seat, peddles, grips.
    then if you still see it fit look for performance upgrades.

    I could finally ride the bike for more than a block, but only on the streets, no trails yet. But I tried to make it as rough as possible, everything that was jumpable (is that a word???) was jumped. The bike seemed perfect, I felt almost no bob at all with 20% sag with the shock fully open. I was looking down to the shock as I was pedaling and it barely moved, even standing and hammering down. There was a buddy riding along in a Trek Fuel and it was bouncing with every stroke on the pedal (probably not well dialed). I reduced the pressure a bit and managed around 22% of sag, trying to go more to the plush side.

    I also felt the bike was faster to accelerate, I could stay in higher gears for longer and steep climbs that often forced me to drop to the smallest chain ring could be done using the med chainring and a med sproket. Can't wait to get the new wheelset and tires ready, will reduce more than 800g on the set. It will get even better to accelerate.

    It's still on the heavy side, around 29.3lb (13.3kg), plans are made to hit 25.3lb (11.5kg).

    So far I'm loving it, will hit the trail saturday and report.

    so i've been lurking for a while now, and based on what i read/reviews, i decided to purchase the Ace frameset and piece it together. ive never owned a FS rig,coming from riding fixed gear and hardtails, but my back isn't a fan of the hardtail so yeah. After a couple months of accumulating parts.. sorry for the shitty phone pictures,will get better ones tomorrow<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/39191103@N05/4851147967/" title="bike1 by clarityatheights, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4094/4851147967_7432e7afe3.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="bike1" /></a>

    Pretty neat, congrats. Any idea on the weight?

    Talking about the trail I mentioned earlier, the bike was fantastic, I just felt it a bit tail happy, perhaps is the tire at the back, is an old Kraken with a lot of wear, waiting for the hubs and spokes to arrive to set up a new wheel and put a pair of High Roller 1.9. So far it's everything I expected and more.

    I also felt the need to have the front lowered a bit, seems like 120mm on really steep uphills is too much.

    I don't know much about FS frame weights. But is the Ace considered a light frame for a XC FS?

    I adjusted my fork to 100mm and I leave it at that almost all the time. If I'm doing a long decent, I might raise it to 120mm, but sometimes I forget and it's not a big deal for me. I like the handling at 100mm.

    I use a Reba Race fork so unfortunately I can't change the travel on-the-run. I was a little concerned about 100mm on the rear but the last trail showed that 100mm is just fine, the red o-ring stopped 5mm away from the end of the shock's travel, which means I still had 10mm of rear travel. Not bad, considering I was going down the hill like there was no tomorrow, ehehhehehe.

    Dictatorsaurus, I believe it's considered a light XC FS frame. For comparison, the Giant Anthem X weighs 2.3kg in M size, the Sette Ace weighs 2.4kg in the M size.

    Woow, that's really cool indeed.

    From the parts looks like you are going to do some AM on it, do you think the frame can handle that?

    thanks! I dont know if what/how i plan to ride would be called AM, the trails out here are pretty rugged and rocky, but also a lot of flowy single track.Only weighing 150ish and coming from riding a hardtail with minimal suspension up front, im used to being light on my feet and picking lines so i dont think i will be thrashing it too hard. no real huge jumps/drops either. i wanted something that would be reliable and relatively simple which is why i opted for a 1x9 and mechanical brakes as opposed to hydraulic. As for the Saint RD/shifter, i recently got to ride a bike equipped with it and i loved how minimal the shifter was and how snappy the shifting was compared to xt/xtr. Plus i think the integrated skidplate is cool. And yes, i do have DH specific tire that isnt very light,but those suckers grip like no other. first shakedown ride is tomorrow, will keep everyone posted

    ok impression after first ride today- Hamud, you were definitely right about 120mm up front being a tad much for climbing. it was hard trying to keep the front wheel down,so i bumped it down to 100mm then to 85mm for the remainder of the climb,which in turn made the Ace climb like a beast.

    i notice very little pedal bob, if any,and i was definitely paying attention to it.
    lockout on the rear shock is a godsend for climbing too in those steep sections.

    on the downhill, put the fork back at 120mm and i can easily say i havent had that much fun in a long time. felt like i made it to the bottom of the trail double time.'

    overall- Bike was a lot more than i was expecting and handled like a dream in the **** conditions we have here. very impressed.

    When i had my ace it was a perfect climber at 120mm. Switched to a 130mm and had to adjust my technique on climbs but found the overall ride to be its best in this config. In the end it was just too much of a stiff bike for me.. But some people dig that.

    im sure it would climb better if i were a weight weenie with my build, but weight is/was not an issue. it sure is nice being able to have +/- 30mm whenever i want up front though.

    Same impression I had, it was really hard to keep the tire on the ground, every stroke on the pedal was a lift on the wheel. But I have to say that it was a really steep climb with lots of loose rocks.

    Even with sag at ~22% bob was minimal with shock opened.

    For the next trail I will put a plastic cable tie on the fork to see if it will hit end of travel at 100mm, even if it does, will reduce it to 100mm and put more air on it.

    Something has to be wrong with either you guys cockpit or technique. The front end never lofted on me until I hit 130, and even then a slight adjustment to technique sorted it out - and I'm talking nose bleed climbs.

    I had a really tall cockpit to begin with, but I added a shorter/lower rise stem and removed 15mm of headset spacers and that really helped. I really like the handling of it now.

    I use riser bars, have problems on my back so using a flat bar would be painful. Add to that my 187 lb and there you go. Will drop the fork to 120mm, if that doesn't solve will try a shorter stem, using 100mm now.

    id love to run bar ends but they are as much of an annoyance as they are beneficial.

    Just an update on the Ace. Had a serious accident this past saturday, went otb at more than 40 km/H and after hitting the rocks hard saw the bike flying over me and stopping like 4 meters from me. Got some bruises, scratches and muscle pain, but nothing broke. After all this the bike amazingly nothing suffered, just a flat tire, not even a scratch. Very resistant indeed.

    Update

    Just to let you guys know I've logged 1700 miles on my Ace. Still looks and runs like new! I've changed the handlebar to a high riser and tires to Panaracers. About the tires, they'er great - never knew kevlar compared to wire bead could make such a difference.

    Also had it safety checked and tuned professionally after breaking nipples - 3 front and 2 back. I gotta say, it rides terrific. Just love this bike.

    I felt a lot of difference by replacing the wheelset and tires. Reduced almost 1kg in rotating mass and now it rolls a lot easier. Was concerned about the wheels (local company rims, DT super comp spokes and Novatec hubs) not being up to the task but so far so good. Even in the accident, the front wheel entered a hole, sent me otb and is still perfectly aligned.

    Following some tips of the guys above I will switch to a low riser handlebar and probably a shorter stem and see how it fits.

    There's a medium ace frame for sale in the MTBR cassifieds (mine)

    I'm open to offers, it is nice! a bit scuffed, but great shape, no dents or cracks...I am just thinning the herd, liked the bike a lot, but I tend to ride AM a lot more than XC, and I like to ride XC on my HT...

    I don't race but I'm looking at the Sette Ace as being my first full-suspension bike. Price and components just scream common sense to me. Am I wrong??

    Well, I only bought the frame and built it with the parts I already had. Anyway, talking only about the frame, it really ROCKS. Will only trade for a 29er Full Suspension.

    I love the looks and the reviews of this bike, but being 6' 1", I am not sure 18.5" is gonna be enough. Can anyone tell me if it would work?
    Thanks

    edit : I guess it was available in 20.5" but no longer. Just my luck. lol

    I´m 6.1 too, went with the 20.5" . But the 18.5" should work too. On PP site the 16.5" is the only available.

    Well all I can say is WOW!!!!! I have been looking for over a year for a new rig to replace my trusty old steel hardtail. I was really dead set on either the Trance 4/ or the new Camber comp, but after reading this thread I think I might go with the Ace. My questions are, I plan on buying the whole complete bike. I'm 5'6(5'6 1/2 in the morning ) Will the 16.5 frame fit fine? I've noticed that most of the demos I have done have been on small frames for FS rigs and they usally fit nice, but my HT is a 17/18'(I can"t remember it's been so long). Also it seems that the stock bike come w/ a decent set up as is. I mostly do XC riding here in western ny,and if I get a bug in my ass I might do 1-2 races a season. Will this set up be alright straight out of the box? How much work is involved with putting the bike together when you order the complete bike? thanks for the help . And to those that posted pics, Nice rigs

    I would go for the Giant much much much better suspension the Sette is not a bad bike just not as plush. Giant got the suspension figured out

    different design with an expensive patent.

    the sette would have to increase the price dramatically to offer a "evolved design" and thats not part of that they stand for. they want "more for the money"

    I own the Anthem which has the same suspension as the Trance.

    The Ace and Trance are very different bikes. I think you need to determine what kind of riding you intend to do then make a decision based off of that.

    I ride mostly moderate to rugged XC. It's typical NE ridding conditions alot of rocks,roots,mud mixed in with som technical ups and downs. No big drops or free riding stuff. I guess I'm more concerned with the fit.

    I would also like to know what the main difference is between the Ace's sram x7 group, and the Trance's deore package. Everything else between the two seems close.

    Deore is made by Shimano and is about equivalent to X7, either is a good choice . It is going to come down to riding style , if you spin in circles and never mash on the pedals the the Sette would probably work well for you . If you are the stand on the pedals , out of the saddle , kill it on the climbs kind of rider then you would probably prefer the Giant , Maestro suspension is very forgiving . Good luck .

    sram and shimano offer a different feel. sram has a stronger "snap" and shimano is very graceful. thats what i have picked up through using them.

    the trance is a good bike but its built for trail riding. thats why its suspension is more plush it also has more travel.
    the sette ace is a XC bike and the suspension will feel stiffer and limitless.

    the bikes also have a totally different geometry.
    the trance will win down the hill if it gets hairball enough that the extra 1in will make a difference but the ace will win up the hill where less is more.

    the trance on first ride will feel more gracefull down the hill due to its "plush" behavior.

    apples to oranges... they dont compare...

    I guess I'm starting to lean more towards the ACE because it sounds like it has more of the characteristics that I'm use to. After riding my steely for the past 12 yrs. I have come to enjoy the quick nimble feel of it. But with age starting to creep into the equation, along with beating the hell out of my body when I was younger, I could due with a little cush in the back end. Thanks for all the input. Now I need to start working on the wife for permission

    I just took delivery of a new Ace. Hopefully I'll finish getting it dialed in before the weekend is over.

    I live and ride in New England and I bought the Ace in Dec. I was able to finally get her out to the trails this weekend. BUYER BEWARE!!!!! If you ride in muddy conditions then be careful how big your rear tire is. I have an IRC Bear Trail back there (2.25) and I was getting clogged a LOT as the space between the tire and frame is around 0.5in. Made for a little tougher pedaling in places. I'm going to drop down to a 2.1 or 2.0 back there and see how that is. Other than that, the bike is great and I noticed a huge difference compared to my previous bike (2000 Speshy HardRock Comp).

    Need sizing help please

    I think I have decided on the Sette Ace 2.1 from PP and having trouble deciding between the 16.5' and 18.5' sizes. I am 5'7" with a 30" inseam and 160 lbs, I rode a 16.5' Rockey Mountain for a few years that seemed to fit okay until I switched out the forks then it felt cramped and squirrely. I am leaning towards the larger size, any suggestions? Thanks

    what did you do to the fork? less travel means a more direct angle and more precise handling a longer fork slackens the angle and slows the steering.
    RAH!

    I didn't think I did anything to the fork, and that was the only thing I changed. The original fork must have been bent, because it would stick and had already been rebuilt by a bike shop and still stuck, it did not have a smooth travel. The fork I replaced it with was a newer version of the same fork, but was a bit longer and certainly had longer travel (probably just a function of it not being bent?).

    I'm 5'10", 31" inseam and 185lb and I have the 18.5. It is large for me and I prob could work with the 16.5 as I feel "tall" on mine but I like that. I think you'll be fine with the 16.5. It's a great bike and for the current price of $900, you can't go wrong either way. Enjoy!

    hey guys,

    another Sette Ace owner here... Mine has pretty average parts, SRAM X-0 drivetrain, Avid Elixir brakes

    Has about 1500 miles on it now, I have upgraded a lot of the original build parts, the only issue is the rear shock makes some creaking noise when its locked so I may replace that at some point, or it may just need a good overhaul.

    The paint job on the sette frame is not fairing too well after using Sette's hitch bike rack for two years. (I now upgraded to a Thule Doubletrack which will keep the bikes in pristine shape).

    I was considering replacing it with a Santa Cruz frame at some point, but after reading how much other owners like their Aces I may just keep it and be happy, I haven't had any complaints and riding is pretty great.

    I would call myself a casual XC rider, I like long distance all day rides and singletrack, but not a racer.

    those brake disc's are monstrous! do you really need that much bite?! is that an 8'' in the rear too...

    you will probably find a 6'' combo or even a five in the rear to be plenty unless you will be on long steep descents that you drag the brakes the whole way.

    santacruz makes some beautiful bikes but if your happy with your sette as is it may not live up to the extra grand you will have to drop on a santa cruz
    RAH!

    Ya there are plenty of long steep descents around here on the back roads, I found 6" rotors and the brake calipers to get very hot, even where I could smell them. (I was using Avid BB7s). I'm by no means slow, but over 40mph on a mountain bike gets a bit scary. The new Elixir brakes are amazing though, I probably didn't need 8" in the rear but it works. All the bike shops around here sell 8" rotors on the bikes at least the front, I have seen some with both as well.
