    i see that there has been a number of upgrades done to your Rumblefish. most notably mentioned is the wheelset upgrade. has anyone ventured into using I-SPEC adapters specially for the RF PRO owners? if you have would you be so kind enough to post a picture along with the REVERB remote? also how was the install? did you have to mess with the cables?

    seems like im reaching quite a bit for my REVERB remote and im thinking using the I-SPEC adapter will bring the REVERB remote closer.. plus a cleaner cockpit look..

    thanks. .

    My 2013 Elite

    2013 rumblefish-image.jpg

    Here's my Rumblefish Elite. I've been riding it sense December and I just love it. The only mods for now are Oury green locking grips and setting it up 1 x 10 with MRP chain guide. One if the best mods was setting up the tires tubeless.

    I will find out from a contact at Fox and post what I learn. I ride with a lever on another bike and use it as much as the dropper post (all the time.) There do seem to be some subtle differences between the OEM Trek and aftermarket CTD forks/shocks.

    don't hold me to it, but I read somewhere before that you can't convert the rear shock to accept the remote cable if it wasn't made for it originaly.

    I'll ask again, but I thought I was told that the aftermarket CTD stuff could be converted to a remote lever. The "conversion" may be the entire damper assembly though. The non remote has a fine tune compression dial where the remote lever version does not.

    So far, I've heard shock not compatible with remote lever but fork may be. If fork appears possible will be converting to remote this week or early next.

    It does look like the fork can be converted, but rear shock can not. I'll try to get the part numbers to convert the fork to CTD lever. One thing to note is that the Scott lever works with Fox CTD forks and is a smaller more elegant design.

    I ride a 19inch RF, curious to know what length stems guys are running

    When i brought it I was tossing up between the 17.5 and the 19inch , im a bit between sizes,the 19 came with a 110mm stem, the 17.5 came with a 90mm,

    I rode both bikes and then swapped stems , I liked the feel of the 19 inch with the 90mm stem and thats what Ive been riding since november ,no real problems with it but curious to try a shorter one again ,

    Would love to hear what length stems other guys are using , particularly on the 19 inch bike. Thanks

    Anybody have pinch flat issues on their 2013 Rumblefish Pro?

    Less than 5 miles on my new Pro and I've had 3 pinch flats due to the rim strip slipping, 2 flats on the rear and 1 front. After the first flat (about 3 blocks) on the rear my LBS replace the rim strip and tube but on Saturday both tires went flat on me about 2 miles from my house.

    So yesterday my LBS convert my wheels to tubeless at no charge.

    have had no problems. wanted to clarify though, are you using the same rim strips your wheels came in with or did you have to order a different pair?

    Factory rim strips, the ones that came with the wheels.

    They replaced the rear rim strip with Velox rim tape after my first flat. The Velox rim tape did the same thing as the factory rim strip.

    i think that may be the problem.. i used BONTRAGER RIM STRIP with PART # 406892 which is what you need to set-up your wheels tubeless..

    All of my flat tires were with the factory tube set up. To resolve my issue the dealer covered my tubeless conversion using the correct Bontrager rim strips.

    Went for a 15 mile ride yesterday and so far so good with the tubeless setup.

    I'm riding the 21" RFPro and at 6'4" it fits about right, but I've just swapped the 90mm for a 70mm and its made the bike really lively. The steering feels much quicker and it generally seems more chuckable around the tighter stuff.

    I have seen this before with Duster rims, both my own and customer's. The best solution I've come up with (if you want to stick with tubes) is Velox, but you have to install it offset in the rim so that it is centered over the spoke holes. The problem is that the rims are wide and the holes are very offset. A normal rimstrip can shift a bit and expose the outside edge of the outer most holes. Of course, the best option is to just set them up tubeless, since the Bonty system is damn near bullet proof.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    I'm planning on doing this.to my dusters when I need tires. Which tubeless tires.work well with the bonty setup besides bonty tires? I've read that some tire brands tend to have problems mounting on some wheel/strip combos.

    Most of the non-UST tires need a compressor to seat the bead initially. I was lucky enough to have a Schwalbe seal up without a compressor last night but it was mostly luck. Yes, some combos are a real pain in the ass to get to seat the bead. Any tubleless ready tire should work. Its mostly a technique thing to get the tire to seat/seal. Notubes has some good videos online that can help.

    Last sunday, I just dislocated my shoulder because the stock tires doesn't have the grip of my old HansDampf 26'', I really consider buying a Dampf 2.35 for the front and a Continental Trail king 2.25 for the rear.

    I replaced the handlebar for a 760mm and a stem of 50mm.


    My opinions of my RumbyPro after ±200km of trails? I love my dual chamber shock, it simply rules! I like the fork but not as much as expected. I like having a drop-post, but it's new to me so I often forget to use it. The sad thing about this drop-post, I can't fit the handle to my left hand with the other handles. I found more convenient to pu it to the right. With the plastic OEM Trek strip, mounting the tires to tubeless was reallllllly fast.

    I had a Giant anthem X3 2010 large, now it's a RumbyPro X-L. I'm 6'2'', 180-185, crosscountry/XC rider. I had the Giant Trance X0 in mind, but the local bikeshop made me a deal: 3750$ instead of the 4600MSRP in canada. I took the deal without try the bike Really satisfied for now!

    For now, I keep the 3 chainring but I consider going to 1 to remove some weight. This bike is not light, compared to my 25 lbs Anthem.

    For sake, don't listen to the reviews done on youtube by those amateur from 29eronline...

    @ handlebar cluttering: You could try the Shimano I-spec brackets, it's been discussed in this topic before. Too bad Trek didn't spec them.

    why not??? After 20 min on the bike, I was capable of more than what they showed. When you do a review, it is because you know what you are talking about... right?

    anybody else have any creaking noises coming from thier fish?

    I have the elite, and I thought it was coming from the crank/bb area, but a while ago I had it on the stand wiping off the fork tubes and now I think it may be coming from the front end of the bike.

    there's no play in the headset that I can feel or anything like that, but if I grab the bars and the front wheel and push them in opposite directions I can hear a creak noise. I haven't tried to tighten anything yet. is this typical of a stem being loose?

    funny you mentioned this. i had two rides last Saturday in Canada. One long which was at Fanshawe Conservation Trail and the other short in a hiking trail in one of their Bike paths.

    conditions where muddy and wet on my first (long) ride but the Rumblefish ate everything that was in its path.. so was happy and content on this ride.. later in the afternoon i noticed a "creaking/squealing" noise, but i was thinking this was from the front rotor probably with dried mud stuck and will ultimately loosen and dislodge as i ride...

    the noise intervals widened as i rode and was hopeful itll totally go away after my ride... so i thought. just when i was loading up the bikes in the van as we were heading home, i heard the noise again... this time with no load!... i figured id just let it be as i expected us to be home late by 12mn... ill check again later when i get home and im hoping its nothing serious as the crank/bb...

    for now, no noise.

    dismount the fork from the bike, clean and apply new grease.

    check for dust on the tru axle rod.

    On my last bike, I had to dismount the bike 3 times per seasons (1 time every 800km).

    Well... i can't say a lot about the weight thing. Though my bike is a big 21, it's got lighter everything, including the wheels. The weight of my bike didn't bother me on alpine traildays anyway. And it's efficient enough for long slimbs in the saddle.

    My bike does not feel slow. But it's not an xc bike, that's for sure. I does feel like a lot of bike for smooth trails. Like i said, no XC material.

    It's also not built specifically for jumping. If you're planning a 'jumping day' It's better to increase the pressure in the dampers to avoid bottoming too hard too often.

    About cornering.. i'm still learning. It's a big, long bike. But it allways feels benign.

    And i have to agree woth 29eronline: downhills are the bomb on this bike :-).

    On part choice:
    Allthough never liked doubles because of the smaller bandwidth, I ditched the big ring after one yoar of riding, i now ride a 22-34 double with a 11-36 cassette. Suits the bike, looks badass :-)
    I also ride a 750mm handlebar now. Nice! :-)

    I love my 2012 RF Elite (stock is identical to the 2013 model). The stock wheels and tires are strong and capable - but as many have mentioned they're heavy.

    Contrary to the 29eronline reviews, I absolutely LOVE this as a long-ride bike.

    I did a few upgrades:

    1. Wheels: Stan's Crest Rims (white) / American Classic Hubs / DT SuperComp Spokes
    2. Handbars: Bontrager RXL Carbon 720mm
    3. Seatpost: Syntace P6 HiFlex Carbon
    4. Crank: Shimano LX + swapped the 24t inner ring out for a 22t
    5. Tires: Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.35 w Snakeskin


    Just swapping the stock tires out for Nobby Nics makes the bike noticeably faster. That was my first upgrade, and the difference is surprisingly fantastic. And with Nobby Nics you gain sidewall protection and a tubeless design.

    For long days of trail riding my favorite is the Nobby Nic front / Racing Ralph rear combo. The Ralph rolls even faster and you won't notice any detriment while climbing, the biggest tradeoff with the less aggressive rear is just a little bit less braking power out back, but it's a good trade.

    I also agree that the RF is an excellent bike for long days in the saddle on varying terrain.

    I've ridden & raced Racing Ralphs a lot, and fwiw another RR trade off is that Racing Ralphs wear more quickly. Nobby Nics are not super long lasting, but, since there's so much more knob to start with they have a longer useable life than Racing Ralphs.

    NN in the front and a new RR in the rear is good. 2.35 NN front and rear is super confidence inspiring and leaves nothing to be desired - fast + great grip, volume and comfort.

    I organize the Virginia Endurance Series Virginia Endurance Series of 40 to 80+ mile FREE backcountry mountain biking events, and I don't know of a better bike to enjoy rides like these on than the Rumblefish

    The Ralph pictured in that link had easily 1500 miles on it as a rear tire (probably closer to 2k), which is pretty good I think. I have heard about wear problems from others and I think terrain (soil/rock types, etc) and rider weight must be large factors. I find the useable tread life of all the Schwalbe's I have tried to be pretty good compared to other similar tires.

    One thing I can say for sure though, nothing rides (weight/comfort/speed) as well as the SnakeSkin Schwalbe's that has comparable weight and durability. I nearly cry every time I have to pay retail for one, but I am soon reminded that they are worth every penny.

    I ordered the correct strips from Trek, part number 406892 and used the Stans valves that I bought earlier.

    Rim strips just pop straight it - they are much tougher than I thought they'd be with a very defined groove which I guess makes the tyre sit in and seal.

    Tyre on - measure of sealant in and pump it with the track pump. Tyre just popped straight on. Took about 10 mins per wheel.

    Only thing now is I don't get to ride it again till at least Wednesday.
    Since the RF Elite comes with the duster wheels rather than the rhythm elite...would the dusters require the same part # strip?

    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    Re: 2013 rumblefish

    I ordered some upgrades last night. Shadow plus rear, and some xt cranks and cassette. I kind of wish I had splurged for the pro...but I'm still enjoying it.

    What chain guide are you using here and how does it work with the triple front? I just got a '13 RF elite and im interested in adding one of these.

    We were riding our local trails today and i came upon a santa cruz demo event. I rode a carbon Tallboy LTc with carbon wheels, fox kashima stuff, and XT goodies.

    It was really light and a nice bike, but I was happy to get back on my fish at the end of the ride.
