    Thanks Kreater. 287mm is 11inches. I think you can put about 4-5 inches in the frame. So that means about 6 inches is sticking out?

    hey alex, yes just over 11in. i have the seat post all the way in the seat tube flush with the bottom, and about 4 3/4 showing. I might still tweak it a bit. hope this helps.

    Thanks Kreater. That does help. So then you have about 2-4 inches of adjustment for the seat tube.

    I'm just trying to decide if i should buy a used thomson masterpiece and cut it down or buy the elite 287mm.

    99% complete.

    Just need to trim the brake hoses, slap on the frame protection in a few spots, and swap out some of the Ti jewelry that is still on the way. Should have everything done this weekend and be able to post some better pics.

    Good catch. I'm not done with the brakes yet, I still need to trim the lines and I'll route it inside the chainstay once I've got them cut to length.

    Yeah. If that is a small or med (headtube 3.5 or 4.0 according to the turner web site) + whatever stack height the headset adds might be less than 105mm (4.13"), which is what fox recommends as the min.

    Fox: "If your total stack height is less than 105.0 mm, add a headset spacer between the upper headset parts and the upper crown, to arrive within this total headset stack height specification."

    It looks a bit more exaggerated on my bike since I'm running a drop direct mount stem. With a normal rise direct mount stem it wouldn't stick out so much.

    I'll probably try a riser stem at some point, but wanted to see how this drop stem felt to see if it gave more bite to the front tire.

    Its a medium. I measured the stack height while installing the fork and it is at 107mm.

    Its made by these guys: http://muckynutz.com
    Its a really simple design, just a flexible piece of plastic and some velcro.
    They make for a nice small front fender also.

    Hey PG,

    How's that muckynutz fender working out for you? Any ride time on it yet? My concern that it might move around and hit the tire when I'm riding.

    Fender

    Have you ridden the fender in the muck yet? Does the fender actually stop anything, my thought is that the mud will just dump right over the top of the fender.

    Report Please!

    Please shoot at least 1 shot directly side view on all these DHRs

    Thank you

    DT

    Based upon my experience with a fender about the same size as PG's, it did little, if anything, to keep mud off the shock. Looked cool though...

    I've riden the last two days in the mud. The shock still got a little muddy, but I think the fender helped some. It probably keeps muds and rocks from being directly flung right into the shock.
    Tire clearance wasn't an issue, but I guess it could be if you were riding in very thick mud.

    Could you tell if the mud was going over the top or under the fender? I'm going to cut one out custom and want to know which way to make it bigger.

    Can anybody tell me what size bolt is used for the shock? Am I right to think it's a M6x40?

    I'll compliment your build, eventhough you didn't like mine.

    That is a damn good weight for a large frame. I'm not a fan of the Orange, but color is always a personal preference and it does make for a really unique ride.

    The rear spring looks long. What size is it?

    Very nice build, looks great. So far, you I are the only ones to post Raw & Black frames.

    Like the others above, that rear fender is sweet. Thanks for the link, I'm going to order one right now!
