    There's something sexy about a well appointed XC race bike. Looks good.

    Nasty Nitrous - Nice! So what the plural of Nitrous? Nitrii? Nitrouses? Nitrae? What's the weight?

    I gave a beer to a Nitrous rider I didn't even know a couple months ago while packing up from a group ride. Don't say ya don't get any love!

    If you go back a couple years Formula did have 140mm rotors for the rear - I still have an old set of B4 Pro's with the 140mm rear. For those looking to make the conversion, the front caliper for the 160mm rotor can be bolted to the rear and mated with a 140mm rotor.

    Mine were both 160mm - so just for because I could I switched the front and rear calipers to run a 180f/140r - I wanted the bigger rotor and was too cheap to buy an adaptor. I already had the rotors as the set was bought uber-cheap off the ebay with lots of spare parts.

    It actually worked great - and the 140mm rotor could easily lock up the rear with my 195# on any XC ride. No real need for it but for the gram counting leg shavers...

    140mm is still 5.5in. Hope makes 140mm rotors, too. Just that 4in, 100mm, seems excesivelly tiny. And these rotors look to be 160mm.

    Formula Oro Puro come stock with that line, the Oro's have a non kevlar line. They set up very well btw. EGHs are 6in rotors. I just set up a Spot with 180mm front/ 160 rear Oro's, short term, very impressive brakes , long term, we'll see.......

    I'm guessing that the reason you don't see many Nitrous' is that your average Turner rider weighs a little more than 165lbs.

    Napoleon complex here, 130 with camelback. If one of you has a spare Nitrous that's feeling too sketchy for you, just let me know; I'll take it off your hands.

    It's seems that you use 100mm fork on your Nitrous.(Right?)
    If then, How does it handle & ride?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nice Nitrous!

    The first thing that came to mind from your headline "Shortage of Nitrous on mtbr.com" was maybe too many of us weigh over the 165 pound weight limit , hence all the 5-Spots perhaps
    I'm an Inbred...29er that is.

    Yes it is 100mm, I like the handling and balance(very stable at speed) of the bike alot, especially as I fatigue late in a race. I have three customers that all run and prefer the 100mm, and I'm pretty sure a certain pro that goes pretty good on his nitrous also runs 100mm Hope that helps!
