    Eye Heart Ventana

    Some "Stuff" came today that will enhance the Ventana stable....and to think, I was actually retarded enough to stray

    For the El Comandante (night night POS King headset....done with you! And CC 110 are WAY too ghey and homer approved for my liking)



    For the precious El Rey - front and back; replacing Juicy 7s that El Beastiality was using when he sold me the bike. Formulas were tempting but Squeaky recommended them so I had not choice but to go with something else; tried and true Hopes and not to mention, Formulas are becoming too Homer approved as well for me to stomach.





    And finally, got rid of the lame RFX. Actually, it was a great bike and hell, much nicer than the new XC versions but still, it aint no Ventana El Salt (since I suck at wrenching) is gonna put the pieces together for me hopefully this week. Not great pictures but you have seen it before anyway...will doll it up with some new stickers (maybe from Jay?) and clean off the rest of the dirt that the Beast was kind enough to leave on the bike . Paint job is robust as heck....can just feel the quality. Will give the air shock a chance. Heck, it has an anti-bottom out feature built in (not sure its available to average joe either) so I am sure it will be more than enough for this girl.

    (ignore zip tie for now...staying there to keep parts in place)







    and to gussy her up a bit to make it even gheyer, a new bashguard was ordered. Also put one on my El Rey; they are a great bashguard indeed and weigh only 12 friggin grams more than the big ring which is pretty darn light, if you care about that stuff

    I remember that paint job, very nice! Formula brakes are El Rey approved (at least on mine) and no homer is going to force me away. Heck I'm just lucky I didn't see pictures of JNC's One brakes before I got mine, that would have cost me some extra $$$. Enjoy the rides and I may get one of those bash guards as well, I'm not sure if I would ever use the large chain ring.

    seriously, large rings are lame. this bash "looks" super tough for sure.....poly, pretty thick, and SUPER light.....comes in cool colors heck, the white is pretty subtle compared to th e13 white so go for it!

    Beast - are we allowed to ask if the Terremoto is going to be replaced, and if so, by what?

    Good to know that the snow camo Moto is going to a good home. Nice choice Fo.

    Them RFXs are like a-holes - everyone has one.

    Gheyest thread EVAR

    But seriously E, that is the chit there. I really dig the matte powerdercoat on the 'Moto, and am jealous since that is the bike I want. Good choice of headset, the Orbit Extremes are good at taking punishment. Can't wait to see it built up.

    Is that a large?

    Can't wait to see it built up and then sit on a wall somewhere!

    I have heard some pretty good things about the Hope HS's...I'll be interested to see what you think. Hambone and I both run those Gamut bashes...they are perfect.

    Great to see you added another one to the stable. Post up some more once it's actually rolling. You could really use a coil shock though...a Push'd RP23 is the only air shock I would even think of running...so it might work out perfectly.

    it is a large. headset was provided by El Beastiality which was great. The headtube is 1.5" and since I will be keeping fork from RFX (1.125") I needed a 1.5 to 1.125 reducer headset and beastro no longer did so it worked out right. While King does make a reducer version it is serious coin anyway, and i am not one to spend money.

    perhaps POS is harsh, though I have had horrible creaking from 2 now in my day. Squeaky, Aqua, Larry, to name a few (Larry should not be in the same sentence as those two numbnutz so forgive me larry), are yet other examples of folks with creaking kings that could no longer be tolerated. TONS of threads on it, not that mtbr means jack, but I have had and have known lots of folks with same issue when moving to a single speed or long travel fork.

    besides, people are overly protective of their precious king parts so its a good choice to bash on

    The Orbit Extremes are good value, I thought I was having a good run, I then needed to remove it for a fork change on a steed, the HS was basically focked after a year with not alot of riding......

    It will for sure do the job, but I have read more crap stories than good about the Orbit HS, more so when people have gone to do maintenance....

    Sorry to jack this thread............

    This far have not had any issues with the 1.5 CK HS on the Nicolai..... Also have a 1.5 CK with a reducer on the other steed... Time will tell for sure...

    I have not had any problems with my CK headsets, one is getting on a bit now, and she is all good...........

    Let me state that I've only had the creaking issue with longer travel forks in the 1.125" headsets. I never had a creaking issue with the headset on the El Rey with the shorter travel fork.

    Beastro's new ride. This was taken before he sent it for paint and added the Knolly stickers. Fo will be purchasing it soon after beast defiles it.

    Doesn't matter one way or the other. One has to actually ride the bike in order to hear a creak.

    Kidding aside, I don't know why so-called boutique mountain bikes don't come with kickstands. I'm tired of scratching the frame from laying my bike down in the dirt or from standing it up against a tree. The stands could be made from titanium or carbon for max weight savings with color-coded powder or ano as an option for those more aesthetically-inclined.

    Maybe they can add an Ohlins damped, bar mount actuated lowering/raising device as well.

    Beast- you still need to sell your camo shorts to Fo. I think you forgot that it goes with the bike. Good to see the Ventana go to someone in the mtbr family, even though Fo does get banished to the outskirts once in a while.

    Sweet lookin' ride Fo. Can't wait to see the complete build. Also nice to see no bondo or JB Weld hanging off the frame from that so called repair that was made by the Beastro and Co.

    Now that your leash is getting a bit longer you may just have to make a trip down here.

    Fo....What happened to the 2 Bike is all you need testimonial you were giving me not to long ago. It's nice to see the Old Fo back better then ever

    So should I tell Chad to switch my order to a Hope 1.5 instead of the CK that I ordered????

    I thought the creak was on longer travel forks only?????

    The King on my Salt creeks. I've rebuilt, re-lubed, re-faced... I have kings on 5 other bikes, no creeks, but they are road bikes, HT's and a short(er) travel FS. I know there are other posts on this subject, so I'll stop here... But I'm running a Hope on my T-Moto and its been great so far!

    Fo the stuff looks nice, good choice on the headset, King's are garbage, but the bashring will look shitty after a few months of riding and you won't be able to file out the gouges like a nice shiny metal one, or you could just learn to ride over rocks instead of into em which is the prefered method of gnarcore riders everywhere.

    But Tscheezy endorses King. So much so that whenever someone asks a tech question, such as the wear and replacement of the topcap, his response is "I've got 25 Kings and no problems".

    The M4's could be homer approved. There's now you, me, Tidy, Trail, and Aqua, the anti-homer.

    Fo,

    How much does that Gamut weigh? You need long bolts to mount it? Low down, please, thanks!

    When you are tired of the Terremoto, let me know, it's my size.

    True dat Rick; if Fo is a real gnarcore rider like Aqua, he will have big chunks gouged out of his bashring in no time! Real men ride into rocks, not over them.
    BTW, who's bashring is this? Must be a p u s s y rider, cause the bashguard looks real pristine:

    So should I tell Chad to switch my order to a Hope 1.5 instead of the CK that I ordered????

    I thought the creak was on longer travel forks only?????
    Huh? i do have 2 bikes....2 bikes on the left, and 2 bikes on the right side of the garage.

    I bet the King 1.5 is more burly as its intended for MTBs and not both.....heck, the thing weighs a ton so definitely will rock.

    Creak rears its ugly head on longer travel forks and/or single speeds where torque, from one source or the other, is higher and more constant (says the armchair engineer)

    When you are tired of the Terremoto, let me know, it's my size.
    Gamut weighed 87 grams (I weighed the one i put on my El Rey) which was literally a dozen grams heavier than big Al ring it replaced. That is for the P20 poly version....there is at least one bigger but the P20 covers a 32/34 ring which is what i run

    I second that. That's a great looking paint job.....but your riding environment doesn't lend itself to those camo colours

    Sweet Fo! Looks like a great addition to the garage.
    IT'S NOT THE FALL THAT HURTS. IT'S WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND.

    Actually it's cheaper to run a metal one and just file out the markings, right Rene?

    Of course you could always just ride the Fing thing, I know that's a diff approach for the homers but it is an option.

    Looks good Fo. Now we can talk about going riding 2 different bikes now. I still have my real man's RFX ('00) if you want to do some bigger stuff up here.

    Naw; Rick, it's much cheaper to just not ride. Hang the bike on a wall and just look at it, I say.

    No personal offense meant Whafe, I was merely trying to point out the difference between your bashguard, and Aqua's, and his corelation between how the appearance of the bashguard reflects the amount of, and gnar factor of the riding going on. Perhaps Aqua is wrong?
    If you are going to dish it out, especially for his cause, you are going to take it sometimes too.
    Oh, and yea, Fo, nice bike.

    Indeed.

    And while you're at it, may I suggest giving Fo a TIME OUT as well ?

    You cannot lock this thread! I'm still waiting on the kickstand issue to be resolved. I'm leaning towards an aluminum one but I hear Ti has some advantages that might make it a clear winner. Also there is the issue of increased weight for 29'er stands vice 26'er ones, is this the straw that breaks the 29'er camel's back? But wait, if BB height is the same for 29'er vs 26'er does that mean the stand can be the same length? I'm so confused???

    Standard bolts worked fine in mine. Just don't over torque them.

    WTF.............I thought you were going to start a new trend and build up a 45lb El Cuervo for your "all day" AM bike !

    Very cool lookin Moto frame though !


    Yeah..........I dig the new Hope brakes also ( Hope M4's are on all my rides including my latest steed which is still unfinished ) they've been excellent perfomers for me so far ! TIG.

    yeah, I do like Hopes. However, I ended up having a problem that has been noted on random mtbr posts.....the Hope adaptor for the Fox Fork actually ends up hitting the little washer-looking things on the rotors. Dont have the tools to grind down so local shop is doing it for me. Surprising that Hope didnt account for this or perhaps something weird about the post mount Fox fork where its too close inward...dont know, but they will be sorted out shortly. Juicy brakes originally on the El Rey will move to a new bike TBD
