    Loving the Totem Coil on my Bottlerocket. I think it was the best choice for me. I was pretty torn between the 36 Vanilla RC2, the 66 RC2, and the Totem and I'm glad I went with the Totem. It slackens the bike (some like, some dont) but makes an incredibly capable freeride rig. I love the simplicity of the tuning, as adjustments are mad easy. I cannot say how much I love this fork.
    Go for it man.

    Sweet thanks for that. YEah i was trying to choose between the van and tot also and went with the totem. How is the floodgate working on yours. I've heard people say that they have busted it.

    I haven't got an accurate weight, but I'm guessing 35 lbs.

    Very tunable... Only problem is, it took me about 10 rides on my last bike to leave it alone. Now since this bike is so different in design, I have to start all over. Probably won't take me as long this time, it already feels great. (Only have one ride on the bike at the moment...)

    Another Bottlerocket??? Ah s**t...

    Hey guys;

    Well i've got my bottle rocket nearling completion now, but i'm a bit stuck with forks. i'd like to hear it from bottle rocket owners themselves; I have Totem 2step airs or Pike 454 air u-turns to choose from as these are the 2 offered to me for a very cheap price; The totems are my initial reaction as they're the more sturdy fork, but i don't want to run 180mm up front, which leaves the other travel setting of 135mm, what i want to know is how much this will affect the bottle rocket geo as i know they are designed optimally for a 150mm fork. I'd just like to hear from someone who runs totem 2steps or a 130-140mm travel fork, i wouldn't imagine it'd affect it that much but you never know.

    Look foward to posting it up soon. ;-)

    um i am guessing you will like the totem more cause most peoiple run BR's at like 180 anyways, with a 66, and you could always just drop the travel for climbs and such

    No, i don't want them at 180mm, i'm from australia, nothing here that justifys 180mm, i'd prefer 135 for our more 'singletrack' based riding. And Marzocchi is not an option, i need to run SRAM i.e Rockshox.

    Why not a Lyric? Or, if you get the solo air Totem, you can lower it via spacers. Voila- 150mm Totem.

    what type of riding are you planing on doing? the totem will slaken the bike out and it will be better for DH and tech FR where as the shorter pike would give you a steeper head angle ideal for jumping and general trail riding. what i would say is run the pike with a standard headset and run the totem with a zero stack headset. that should give you the closest to ideal head angle. hope this helps

    hey Drew,
    from rideing my rocket around with with a 160mm 66, i have came to the concluesion that a pike would make it very steep and twictchy.

    go the lyrics or the toterm!

    Hey how do you guys think a bottlerocket would go with some Marzocchi Z1's 07. I was thinking about buying a new bike to upgrade to a dually but then i thought since i love these frames maybe i could build up a bottlerocket with the parts off my Sasquatch. Then maybe down the line i could upgrade forks i guess.

    the Z.1 is a great fork for the bottle rocket. the BR was designed around a fox 36 up front so seeing as the axle to crown is 5mm difference between the fox and the Z.1. I have a Z1 on my bike right now because I'm rebuilding my fox and it rides just the same.

    Cool, everything else should swap straight over from the sasquatch then. Only problem is that transition now have a new dealer in Aus and theyve jacked up the prices. For a bottlerocket with a dhx in it was 1800 last year now its stepped up to 2300. I bet theyve got themselves a nice little profit margin in there.

    That sucks. The Aus dollar is stronger than ever against the US dollar and they raised the price that much. I wonder if Transition knows this. Maybe try to buy a used one on line here. It could save you quite a bit of money.

    So I just got my BR back from Spectrum Powder Works. They did an amazing job:





    It's orange w/ gold pearl decals and a gold flake clear on top. I should have it built back up within the next week or so after a couple of things arrive.

    The axle goes in the right leg I believe. from what i remember will know when I get home. The axle works differently from the maxle. you just turn it counterclockwise to unscrew and on the other side there is a little plastic tab. push it down and pull out the axle. To put it in screw it in clockwise till you hear a click and you are done. No levers to flip or anthing just screw it in and out

    As good as that offer sounds i think a small wouldnt be big enough for my liking. I'd either get a medium or large i think. Would use it for some light downhilling as well as the usual freeriding and dirtjumping so id want something slightly bigger. The medium Sasquatch i got at the moment feels a bit to small as it is. Also i wasnt really looking at buying too soon just yet, just looking into it for the future in a few months.
