    I've got an SB95... Pike fork and Cane Creek DB Inline upgrade was definitely night and day.

    looks like I'm dropping some cash on fork/shock upgrade this spring...

    any idea if the piggyback will fit on a small sb66 frame?

    It's the 8.5x2.5, cc has a fit guide and there is no mention about fit issues same should apply to the debonair, I was afraid the piggyback could get too close to the top tube, doesn't look like this is a problem

    I just put a M+ Debonair in my small SB66 and it fits just fine.

    I'm pulling the trigger on the pike and m+ debonair, looks like the only one available is M/M, I've read in other threads that's what yeti recomends...

    are you guys using the M/M debonair?

    I'm using a M/L that I found used from I believe a Nomad. Working extremely well for me so far. Feels very supportive even in the min compression setting. I didn't want M compression because of my experience with a M/M Monarch RT3 on a Giant Trance X. It always felt like it would get hung up easier on the back wheel while pedaling over obstacles. I switched to a L4 compression tune shock I found for that bike and it made a big difference. I'm only 150lbs though.

    ^I'm also 150 and am worried the m/m which is the only one I can find might be a little too much and with M/L I could still use reducers to help making more progressive... I've seen comments from people using both M/M and M/L and happy about it though

    SB66 Carbon build thread

    this is out now



    and this is in





    a brand new take off from a nomad I got from PB quickly set sag to 30% with whatever I was wearing at the time (wife calling dinner ready, people just don't understand what's important on a Friday night), needed only 170psi to get 30%, will set everything again Tomorrow with more time! I'm 155lbs but I think I need more air still... will see!

    need to ride this weekend!!! Next is a new fork still undecided but Pike can be found much cheaper so that's a big thing to consider!

    I think I'm going to run the CTD with the Vorsprung Corset. I haven't ridden my new 66 too much yet, but honestly, the damper doesn't see too bad on the CTD, and I think with the Corset benefits it'll be pretty good. My choice was that or a non-Debonair Monarch+ w/ the M/L tune. Hopefully I'm not making mistake....

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a medium frame, preferably 2014. Let me know if you want to sell (can also be a frame/fork and/or crankset combo, depending on parts.

    Thanks!

    it's a chris king one that i bought from a guy on this forum... i think hope are about to start releasing theirs in purple, there's also a company called sixpack that make them in purple, i had one for a while and the colour match was perfect for the hope/king stuff, but as soon as i got it the king one became available so i never actually got round to fitting it.

    Nice, I have a set of purple king hubs but never was able to find an inset 3 headset to match. I will check out sixpack.

    simple question... time to upgrade my 34 CTD 160mm! Will I regret going with a 36 or Pike 150mm instead of 160mm?

    I'm wondering if this will make the bike a little more versatile for trail riding or if it will be basically the same and I'd be losing 10mm travel without much benefit for general riding!

    I struggle with this one daily. I have a FoX 36 160mm on mine (pictured above) and given the prices on the PIKE 150 I am often tested to get it. I think it will depend on the trails where you ride. If you do a lot of DH or real Enduro riding, I think the 36 160mm will be better. If you ride in more flat up and down flowy trails the PiKE 150 is probably better and a sharper ride. I do climb in my 160 without issues, but it does feel a bit more floaty in the front.

    pike can definitely handle with easy all my ride, the only thing that would make me think at the 36 given pike's current lower price is how much easier it would be to experiment with travel, compared to a new air shaft to change pike's travel!

    RockShox still make the Dual Position Air version of the Pike? That doesn't need work to change travel.

    I used to have an sb66c and much preferred my pike at 150 over 160. Front end wandered too much at 160 going up switch backs and what not.

    Anybody try the float x2 or the dhx2 on the Sb66c? I currently ride the float x without the corsette, but with thr new x2 and dhx2 announced today with a pro pedal switch I'm wondering if it's time to upgrade. Any input would be great.

    I'd also like to hear your thoughts on the corsette float x over the non corsette version.

    How do you like it? I use my propedal quite often and find it effective

    Has anyone heard of a broken rear carbon triangle? I broke my aluminum rear and was thinking about trying to get a carbon rear to replace it. Will take new bearings, bolt kit and possibly a new dog bone.

    You want the matt carbon rear from a sb66c, not the clear coated ones that came on the 2014 AC model, those had problems.

    how did you break yours?
    Riding off curbs I guess?


    I think it just got used up. I usually don't back down on the rough stuff but I'm not a big drop guy. Did take it to Trestle in CO last year and several trips to Davis WV but nothing to severe.

    The break is at the standard chainstay junction. I've seen pics of a few broken there.

    Any how, this is on an ALUMINUM rear end so I'll get out of your thread. Thanks!

    looks like a rock hit me yesterday! is that something I need to worry about? I taped some gorila over that to avoid more damage, not sure if there is anything else to do!

    thoughts?!

    You should be ok. There is a metal insert there to hold the bolt and the paint just doesn't stick well. you don't want the chipping to spread though, so get some nail polish or some touch up pain and fill it in. My friends bike has almost the same chip. I got some flat black touch up pain from ibis and it is a pretty good match.

    My search has gone full circle. I have thought and shopped and clicked and read. I've come back to the 66 again and am on the hunt for a light use carbon. It's a shame I can't have the original builders fire up the molds for just a couple more medium frames.
