the rebuild saga continues!
wherever i turn there´s a part in need for replacement...
That´s what you get when you buy used bikes...From who you dont know...
Well i added a set of Dh wheels and other bits.
the worse is that i found out that the bushings are worn out and one is actually broken !!
Probably because of that, i noticed that the replacement rockers that the previous owner had made are crooked and there is one bolt hole ovalized (jeeezz..)
So today me and my brother headed to buy some aluminum to make new rockers...
Hummm....those threads from renegade and lucky 7 gots us wondering...
Could we build 7 inch rockers instead?
Will it work with the fox rc it has now (i think it has 2 in travel, not counting with bottom rubber, coil marks 500X2.30)?
I guess it passes the 3:1 rule.. Althought the shock has lots of clicks left in the compression dial, i think its 1 click open. Will the shock die in a few rides??
with the 7 inch is mandatory to use a 2,25 or 2,5 shock?
Also, when enlarging the dimensions of the rocker should i also enlarge the one between the seat stay and the shock, or should i only enlarge the one between the seat stay and the rear triangle?
some pics of the "beast" (two of them i posted on a previous post)
