    My First 29er "FS"

    I would much rather be riding...hell, I have not even ridden it on dirt yet! Maybe tomorrow??? doubtful, but hoping. As such, no ride report to speak of yet but few pics.

    Anyway, not that I care, but for completeness had it weighed at the shop when I picked up some pedals since I forgot that part and it was under 30 lbs!!! 29.98 to be precise on digital scale.

    Thanks to Larry and El Beastro for getting me my first FS 29er!

    Specs are as follows if you care:
    • Frame = '07 El Rey, large, cosmic orange, heavy duty rear triangle w/quad bearings
    • Rear shock = Fox Float R Pro Pedal air shock w/ High Volume canister with PUSH factory tuning
    • Fork = '08 Fox F29
    • Brakes = Avid Juicy 7s (185/160)
    • Stem = Thompson X4
    • Seatpost = Moots Ti Setback
    • Saddle = Terry Fly saddle, ti rails
    • Headset = black King
    • Bars = Easton EA50 685mm OS riser bars
    • Grips = ODI lock on grips
    • Cranks = Truvativ Stylos GXP cranks & x-type BB
    • Drivetrain = SRAM X.9 drivetrain w/trigger shifters, SRAM 11-34 PG-990 cassette
    • Wheelset = Industry Nines (half black/silver spokes with silver front, black rear hubs) with 9mm axle on front hub using DT Swiss Ratchet Skewer
    • Tires = Panaracer Rampages
    Rear Wheel



    Rear Shock



    Front Wheel w/ Ratchet Skewer



    Few complete bike pics

    Looks great! Nice spec. I have to see those wheels in person, can't get the full effect in the pictures.

    You gotta get out tomorrow! Nice and crisp these days - I went out this morning, low 40s when I started but it warmed up nicely and nice sunshine and clear blue sky after the rain.

    About time . . .
    Very nice, I see the shock has been pushed. And I dig that color--That and the Army green are my two favorite Ventana colors. And that seatpost, man, I am having a hard time resisting the urge to run out and buy one. Most excellent build, including the tires

    Now maybe you can update your picture on the Ventana owner's page

    Moots post??

    Why the ti post?? great for a hardtail, i think it would look nicer with a nice black thomson post, moots has the bling factor for sure but you are not getting the advantage of a ti post on a fs...otherwise great build!! loved mine for the short time i had it, but i live in hardtail country!!!!

    has nothing do to with wanting ti or bling for seatpost or any supposed compliance advantage. i asked beast how much more for thomson setback (origanally offered with straight thomson) and he said he had used moots setbackk and it was cheap and i didnt care which post so went with what he offered is all. if i had setback thomson on comandante would switch in a secon but i dont

    If that was a straight moots I'd trade you in a second . . . . I'd even throw in some Knolly stickers or something . . .

    Weird, those grips look like oury's . .

    Nice work Fo! The new ride is looking mighty fine. The seatpost is a nice touch. I hope your other bikes are ready to start collecting dust.

    One thing I need to point out though, the El Ghey isn't and El Ghey without the 20t granny ring.

    Fo, dats da Shizzle fo sure.

    Sorry I couldn't make the ride this morning. Would have been great to get some "action" pix, you know, with the tires actually in the dirt, helmet "off the back", extra forehead. All the good stuff!

    Let us know how that thing rides once you get back.

    Enjoy! Canít wait to see it in person.

    Nice looking bike Fo sure

    The cosmic orange is a nice colour.....it would be interesting if Sherwood could do that colour in a matte finish Those are pimp wheels and cool colour combination. I'm definitely interested in a ride report.....that front fork is looking nicer every day.....if it wasn't for the ghey white colour I'd buy one for my Padrino. Ditch the seat post Titanium is so ghey

    Yo Fo

    Love the wheels. You built my bike (http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...48#post3847148) added all red Eye Nines since these pics. I went with Middleburg RS 8 crank and a 20-30-40 chainring sequence but otherwise it's nearly identicle. I am 200lbs and struggling a bit with tuning my rear shock. I have 150 lbs of air and I think the thing is bottoming out on the front der cable housing. How does Push modify the rear shock? What improvements do you see? When you get your first rides in keep an eye on that front der cable housing and let us know if you have any damage. See El Ray F-Der Cable Routing for discussion of cable routing/damage issue.

    Looks very nice now sporting the F29, nicer than with the REBA (hope it didn't hit anyone when 'Beast chucked it into the busy intersection ) Agree that I like the Ti post as in general, but the build would look better with the matching Thomson.

    I think the moots post looks dope. I don't know what everyone's problem is with it. But, if you decide to give in to all the e-pressure I can pm you with my address so you can dispose of it discretely.

    Nice bike. Very similar to my El Rey including weight. My Rey is my pimp ride, therefore a mostly summer bike. I think I'm in love with the Manitou 3-way. Just feels so much nicer than my PUSHed RP3 or it may mean that the Fox needs servicing. I'm running Reso on the front and a Nano rear. On my El Cap I was running Ramps front and rear, but I just put a Fire XC on the rear.

    one word, "what will I ever do with the RFX?" I better grow some huevos for riding more serious chunk or I just don't see ever using the rfx.

    had a GREAT shake-down ride. LOTS of climbing, including steep singletrack and fireroad. however, being my third ride in bout 4 months, I overdid it for sure and bonked/cramped at about mile 19 or so leading into a great climb that's pretty tough which bit....had to use granny ring up front. on the bright side, felt great till that point and got a good feel for sure. I will not be surprised if I end up deeming this my best bike ever.

    I can honestly say it not only doesn't look like a 29er, but was very "flickable" (hate that word) whick rocked going down. this bike is stiff, in large due to hd rear, wheels, fox fork w/ 9mm ratchet so there was NO flinching at all...flat out rocked on fast singletrack.

    it fit like a glove and I literally did not adjust a thing for the duration of the 23 miles or whatever it was. MAYBE will go down 10 psi in rear sock for full travel easier but that is it! the setback post, bar height, saddle angle/position was all spot on.

    on one of the long down hill singletracks, the bike flowed like an m-effer. it was friggin fast through mini-techy blazing fast singletrack and did not feel at all I needed to pick lines on all but a few sections. hit a few small drops and it was smooth....very 26er like in terms of managing these sections.

    friggin LOVE the fork and can't believe how ghey my 2 29er rebas felt like in comparison. again ratchet 9mm with fox is sick setup and may be ticket, certainly for many of us anyway.

    as for rear shock, on many sections where I locked out fork I had no problem upping the gear and standing and climbing with seemingly no bob at all. push definitely nailed this one. I would never own a non pushed fox shock, never. being able to click up a few gears and stand helped me avoid ever using granny, pre-bonk anyway. I also never lost traction either sitting or standing climbing.....rampages are also going on my comandante next.

    look forward to next ride for sure!

    Nice ride Fo

    Your are going to love that fork. ...Better edit I didn't read all the posts before I made mine. I found with my Sultan theat the RFX did not make sense even at slightly over 30 lbs. So it went on e-bay and now I have a Ventana HT. I have already gone with two F29s I think its that good with a stiff wheel. I may have to try Pushing fox.

    Congrats Fo!

    I was going to comment that your RFX is in jeopardy, but I see you've already figured that out.

    Love the frame color of course. The hub mismatch is a little unusual for you.

    FWIW, I just put a rear Rampage on my Comandante and it really improved the overall ride compared to the Ignitor I had. Way smoother with tons of traction and literally no downside except a bit of weight, and now I can pin it through the rocks without as much care for the sidewalls.

    With the amount of spacers you are running, I would say you are crying out for a longer fork although the Fox seems to be great.

    I am moving the fleet around a bit right now due to an unexpected ebay purchase, so I will be "back in the fold" with a spare FS 29"er in the near future. It will be more XC oriented than the Lenz. This also means the Comandante will have to go rigid as it is the fork donor. Time for me to man up! Suspended SS is ghey.

    Too bad you didn't consider a Lenz due to the Fuglyness Factor as Devin is a great guy (like Sherwood), runs an even smaller company, and the short stays really are all that. Hard to describe if you haven't ridden them back to back.

    Enjoy as I know you will.

    PS: I notice you have kept the fleet relatively static for some time now. Must be finding what you like.

    thanks

    you mean hub mismatch as in the hub colors dont match the frame or other parts? i actually like what El Beastro did which are now the wheels I now own....the half and half approach looks GREAT in person. Subtletie I think is a good thing with the orange frame.

    dont quite follow that one. i would NOT want more travel......its perfect. i left the spacers as they came that way from the beast and frankly seem fine and really not out of the ordinary by lots of folks' standards. I woudl not want a 5" travel 29er myself. I was looking for an all around bike and this MORE than fits the bill

    wow! you are perhaps the ONLY person who as noticed. i am very happy with all of my bikes and have been for quite some time....wouldnt change a thing on any of them. ONLY reason i would sell would be cuz i cant justify keeping them or simply needed a few spare coins but with the wife now working after 11 years off i think they will all stay!

    And I thought it was just me. The more I ride the Ignitor as a rear tire the more I hate it. Time for a Rampage or Saguro.

    Yo Fo', I was busting on the post for the post, just the colour. You can't blame people for busting on ya for not being 100% colour matched since you "were" known as the "King of Bling"
    Glad you're liking the 'Rey, awesome machines these 4" FS 29ers. They do a lot for the supposed 4" of travel.

    How does the Lunchbox compare to the Curtlo in 4in vs 5in mode? The reason I ask is that my El Cap had slower steering with the longer DUC on it vs the current Magic 100. Others have expressed similar perceptions I believe.

    Nice bike Fo. It's gonna look great hanging on your wall next to the RFX, and any other piece of recreational equipment you have.

    I meant the different color of front/rear hubs. I didn't notice the spoke half and half thing. Interesting oreo pattern. Like I care since I don't even wash my bikes.

    I guess I meant that you could get more travel out of the front end, slacken the steering, keep your bar height the same, and lose a few spacers all in one shot. If you are happy that is what matters.

    Congrats on the wife's job. It is a pain getting through school with four kids I'm sure. Now she can leave you and support herself

    Could you be more specific in your question?

    I used the same fork on the Curtlo and the Lunchbox, and they handle nothing alike, regardless of rear travel.

    and I thought that would slow the handling relative to the Lunchbox whose main attribute was quicker handling. Can you tell me why you like the Lunchbox so much?

    Enel prefers a bike that is less handsome than he, which is quite a tall order but the Lenz somehow has accomplished that difficult feat!

    The Lunchbox (HTA ~68) is slower steering than the Curtlo (HTA~70), but way, way more fun. It's not quicker handling so much as better handling and more responsive.

    Why do I like the Lunchbox so much? It is very, very fun to ride and very capable. The Curtlo was very capable, but not much fun. Think Subie WRX vs 4X4 truck.

    Couple reasons for this (IMO):

    1. By far the biggest difference is the 1 inch shorter chainstays on the Lenz. For me, they wake the ride up immeasurably without any significant downside. I can manual at will, I can bunny hop way better. Obstacles where I would previously lawn dart onto the fork, I can now easily land with both wheels, or a slight rearward bias. It feels more "flickable" I can pump it around like a BMX bike. The stays are shorter than my Comandante, and the front end of the Comandante, even with a light, rigid fork feels way heavier than the Lunchbox.

    2. It is a smaller frame with a 24" ETT (compared to 24.5 on the Curtlo), and the STA is slacker effectively making the cockpit feel even smaller since I run the saddle a bit forward as opposed to set back on the Curtlo.

    I am personally feeling that I like top tubes on the shorter side with the big wheels, more so as the chainstays lengthen and STA steepens. I will test this soon when I get a Medium (23" ETT) El Cap front triangle to bolt on to the Curtlo's rear. That will be a more fair comparison than the Curtlo to Lunchbox since the bike will be fully Ventana at that point. It's a moot point since I love the Lunchbox and wouldn't really change anything about it at this point. The smaller El Cap will be a much lighter build.

    In short, the Lunchbox is fun and I like it. It has little to do with fork size, travel, or head tube angle.

    Sorry for the geek tech hijack Fo

    Your cable housing is to long. You need to shorten it and get it out of harms way. The seatstay yoke is hitting it. After that try dropping the pressure in your shock to 110 - 120.

    Thanks for the response. I have a 21/19 frame because of my long inseam. I've always liked shorter top tubes. Didn't really notice it until Sherwood pointed it out to me. My proportions are so atypical that I really did need a custom road frame. I'm trying to lessen my ignorance of frame geometry and fit.
