    Very nice! Now take those silly XC bars off, before you hurt yourself.

    What?! No UST tires. Better carry 5 spare tubes!

    I'm kidding folks.

    Agua,
    Looks sweet! Just like mine, but I have the old RFX 5" plates.

    What do you suspect the build weight is with the bike set up like that?

    What wheels are you running?

    Thanks in avance.

    The 411

    In no particular order:

    Size of the 5Pack is XL.

    I liked the new X.0 trigger so much for the rear der that I popped for the front rings as well.

    That is a 2.35 Larsen TT on the rear.

    Those bars are not going anywhere soon. As long as I run the DUC on there, I am limited on what I can do with the cockpit arrangement. I had the Huff-Spot diraled in where I liked it climbing as well as descending. With the Pack front triangle(which is 1 inch shorter), I had to swap out the Xrtra Tall with a medium top crown. With this setup I am about 5mm lower with the grip height than where I was. If I was to put a riser on there it would jackup the bar height by 1 1/2".

    I had to move the saddle forward about 10mm to retain the saddle to bar length.

    It looks like I gained a 1/4" on the BB height.

    The bike gained 1 pound (supposedly). So, that should put it at 29 3/4.

    I have new Huffy Sticks ready to slpa on (Thanks Termie!)

    Airwreck,
    Actually it is an RFX rear end, a 6pack front triangle, and 5" RFX rockers. A little bit of everything. I had an RFX with both the 5" and 6" plates, then I got a new front triangle from Turner...a 6pack. I ride in the 5" mode most of the time but switch the 6" plates when I travel.

    Have you ever thought

    That maybe the huffy stickers are the reason that you have so many cracked frames?

    Seriously, that is nice looking rig. Dave sure takes good care of his customers.

    Regular stem adaptor for DUC32

    An option for running regular stems on a DUC from Mikkelsen Frames. It looks like you could run a flat stem, but probably not a negative rise. I don't know anything else about it, I just found the picture while searching for some other information.

    Interesting DUC stem option.

    Supposedly Maverick will finally have their OS handlebar stems available mid October. Also the stem length is supposed to be adjustable.

    That's such a sexy bike. I think all Turner bikes look great but yours makes mine look sooooo average.

    I love the sticker on the chain stay.

    OK, this thing looks kinda scary to me. It may work OK if the front wheel rarely leaves the ground, but it makes me nervous looking at it. I do like the concept, though.

    Maverick has a new stem coming soon. It's gonna give a bit more flexibility in cockpit setup. I've got to figure something out to get the bar height back up 1/2 inch. I rode the 5Pack on saturday and I almost endoed hard, 3 or 4 times trying to adjust to the new geometry.

    I either have to have Seven bend me a new riser bar with a 3/4" rise or try to find an aluminum bar with that rise and 660mm width. I can't raise the top crown up with spacers any higher.

    Insane pics!!!! Damnit!!!! Insane!!! Thanks for linking those!

    Did you clean that step section on the lower portion of Porc? We saw a guy on a burly hardtail clean it and it was sending chills up my spine. There was another steep roller just prior to that section that we were working.

    Hey Steve - that first shot you posted is the line I took there - the guy with the red pack on - where is he headed? from where he is I went to the left - is there a complete line to the right there?

    those pics of Moab/Durango ALMOST show how perfect our trip was - so beautiful it was surreal....yesterday's 20+ mile ride on the Colorado Trail was one of the best mtn bike rides of my life....

    That's the guy on the hardtail.. He was sessioning this whole area like he was a local. In that shot of him from the back....he would get down to the second portion of the stunt, then trials hop around, counter-clockwise, and drop in to the left.


    On the step section, he was taking a "safer" line than what Dusty is taking.


    Last ride for the XCE?

    You can get a 3/4" riser.

    Doesn't the 1 cm forward saddle mess up your leg position w.r.t. the pedals? Seems like that would be what sets the saddle position.

    ahhh, I just headed left sooner and rolled down the whole thing to the left - fun line....

    last ride for the RFX! (although it performed soooo well in Moab it's hard to give 'her up)
    RFX was too much bike for Durango (at 37lbs) - 5 Spot (mine on order) or your 5 Pack would be amazing on that sweet Durango st....

    Rich:

    Who makes one? I need it to be wide at least 660mm. And, preferably with a sweep greater than 9 degrees. This Seven bar is eleven degrees.


    The only bars that I've seen in that low of a rise are 25inches in width, (or shorter).

    The saddle position? I had to bump it forward a bit to retain the saddle to bar length I had before. The TT is longer with the pack, by 1/2 inch. The ride was fairly long on saturday, 35 miles. The knees felt good. I've got to get things sorted out with the bar height, mainly.

    The bike feels different, it is subtle, I'm sure I'll adjust after a few more rides. I did feel the extra pound.

    I get a feeling you are set on a metal bar....so this might not help you even though I would endorse it. Plus it's only 8 degrees so I can see your point.

    Larsen's

    The Larsen TT I have is 2.0.
    Not sure if there are other sizes or not. Haven't personally seen bigger ones.
