    The guy at the LBS recommended it saying he thinks the Henge is more comfortable, but it's a little on the stiff side. I'd prefer a bit more padding.

    @Pcmark...could you edit the thread title to something like a "show off your older FSR" perhaps we can get some more guys posting pics...just a thought...I'm enjoying seeing the older rides. BTW I got some Crank Brothers iodine 11 carbon bars today...the 740mm width is awesome!

    The original post must be too old to go back and edit. I don't have an option to edit my first post to change the thread title

    Sold the old Mavic 721 wheelset on Ebay. Picked up an SLX crankset on Ebay for a great price. It wasn't a 'planned' upgrade, but couldn't argue the price. I also picked up a set of Azonic 420 pedals. The Wellgo's are thick and I smack a lot of rocks with them. The BETD linkage will probably help by raising the bottom bracket, but I'm going to have to wait on that.

    They're just hating because you're old FSR is stilling ripping the trails just as well as the newer bikes. Nice looking bike, BTW.

    BETD linkage is worth every penny. Bought a 2001/2 (not sure) FSR frame with a BETD link to build a spare bike. Rides remarkably similar to my 06 S-Works Stumpy, and different but I wouldn't say worse than my 2012 Stumpy Evo.

    It turns an outdated frame into something very usable.

    http://Photobucket

    '03 model with Elixir R SL brakes, X7 shifters X9 derailleur, Fox 120mm fork, rear shock Pushed, original rims that had v-brakes so black paint is worn off (converted to disc). 2011 Spec seat post and saddle. 680mm bar, 110mm stem 6 degree. The only downsides to this bike compared to later models is the rear end even after pushed is too bouncy on climbs (no pro pedal) The geometry also seems to be a little tight compared to later models which makes it better on twisty stuff but not so great downhill or climbing.

    It's a must on an older fsr. Changed the bike so much.

    Resurrecting my old thread. I picked up a new set of bars and stem and threw those on today. I'll get some pics up soon. Anyone got a BETD link for a 2001-2003 FSR or do I need to put it on my Christmas list?

    Just thought I'd tell ya that Risse Racing makes a complete rear triangle for that bike. Ihave a 99 FSR with one and it rocks.
