    X-Carbon BIke Porn

    New X-Carbon, just built today.

    I'm waiting for a few parts
    • Thomson Elite Seatpost
    • Thonsom X4 Stem
    • Handlebars with few less degrees bend. These are 5 deg and I don't like it
    • A new front tyre


    But apart from that, she is a beauty.

    lol.

    I figured the fork made a change from the bike stand. I could photoshop it out but I would rather be riding.

    There WILL be photos.

    Tough to work with yellow, but it definitely matches my Protege 5.

    Nice.

    I'm looking forwards to the fully built pictures. Will make a nice contrast to my white X-Carbon.

    Wheelwise, I'm running Hope Pro3 SP-CX6 with Stan's Crest rims. Incredibly light and just over half the price of Mavic SLRs (in the UK)

    Brakewise, I'm running Hope Race X2, which are very light and fine for the trail riding I do.

    Still waiting for the new XTR pedals!

    Bob, I see that you're using the RP23. Isn't the new Monarch RT3 better?

    Every Titus fs I've ever owned or bought direct from Tempe, AZ, has come with the RP23 , except for the early El Guapo which had the Pearl (ouch)

    I have had no opportunity to buy the new P-X/O-O Titus closeout frames, but look forward to trying.

    My past experience with RS rear shocks is another story. Pearl and previous.
    I do hear good things about the Monarch, but Fox is the real deal, too.

    Guys, what headset is the right one for this X Carbon? Standard Italian top bottom same size or is it tapered with bigger bottom? Any specific FSA or Cane Creek model that you guys use? My fork is a Fox F100 RLC. Thanks!

    Bob and I started building my X carbon. Ended up going X9 and XO brakes. Thompson Stem and seatpost w/ a lay back. Just ordered Stans wheels: Hope Pro 2's w/ Arch rims. They are a bit heavier, but I'm too close to the weight limit for comfort on the crests. Still very race worthy and will be the rig taking me to the finish line at Leadville. Any suggestions for tires?

    It is not tapered - takes a straight campy/Italian integrated headset. Fsa does the orbit CF, amongst others.

    I wanted to run an hope integrated headset but they struggled to fit it. So they used a FSA headset. Not sure which model they fitted but they assured me it was of a similar quality to the hope.

    650b potential?

    Hey, can someone please post some detailed pictures of the rear triangle of the Carbon-X with a 26" 2.1-3 mounted in it? I'm trying to figure out if a 650b would fit before I pull the trigger...

    I know, I'm weird... humour me!

    Tires for Leadville I would suggest Kenda SB8's unless it rains. Dave Weins used a Contiental X-King 2.2 last year but I think that slowed him down. I like Contiental tires but right now they don't a fast rolling tire with good protection like the small block 8.

    A friend who has done PbVille a bunch uses Spez Fast Trak LT's... I ran them the one year I did it and they worked well. He's also run the Stan's Crows and liked 'em.... Remember, this race is a glorified road ride!

    I was going to suggest semi slicks like Stan's Crow but I didn't think they offered enough traction for some of the climbing sections.

    See the clip:

    I've heard of some people ripping side walls, so that is a concern of mine. I'd like to keep the tires light, but not to the point that I need to worry about rolling over every obstacle on the course. I was looking at Rocket Ron's and Racing Ralph's, but can't find anything on which one would be the faster rolling tire out of the two. I was also looking at the Larsen TT's Lust. The specialized could definately work as well.

    What stem are you running Robin and how tall are you?

    Just put my order in, 2 weeks to wait and sort kit now. Xx120 fork.

    How does the bike ride with the 120 15qr, is it just on the nice side of fast steering?

    Xx 166 crank first on the list
