    She's built a little on the heavy side, but I wanted to be able to push it and not have to worry about breaking too many things. I've got a few changes planned for the future, primarily the fork, and painting the rear end matte black.

    I'm loving this bike as it is though.

    happy trails...

    * Front Derailleur: Shimano Hone
    * Rear Derailleur: Shimano LX short cage
    * Pedals: Shimano M647
    * Stem: 75 mm Gap (that's FSA, right?)
    * Handlebar: BBB Freebar
    * Seatpost: MonoC Carbon (legacy from ye olde xc bike)
    * Saddle: Velo
    * Bottom Bracket: Shimano BB-ES30
    * Cassette: Deore
    * Headset: FSA The Pig DH Pro
    * Grips: BBB
    * Front Tire: Schwalbe Big Betty Gooey Gluey

    Here's my new bike

    Here's my Heckler

    Small Frame
    Light build

    Great ride performance very neutral handling well balanced. Coming form a Faulty forked Enduro SL, realised how nice the Fox Fork is.

    Thanks crank. I picked up the Remix early this fall and I am still very impressed with it. The extra travel over my old xc bike is nice and yet it climbs great. It also accelerates very well. Pedal and it goes. Really like the XT dual controls.

    I like how you took the blue anodized color from the Pike lockout knob and used it elsewhere on the bike. Looks nice

    Here's my Ironhorse mkIII. The frame is new to me and the rest of the parts are transfered from my Chromag hardtail (the frame of which is now for sale....)









    Ooohh moody



    And finally the trail hound posing



    Went for a bit of a blast in the snow today, lots of fun.

    Quick build overview:

    2007 MkIII Team frame, 19"
    Rockshox Lyrik Solo Air
    Hadley Hubs front and rear, gold, laced to Syncros DS28 rims
    Hope Mono Mini brakes, 160mm rear, 185mm front with 2-piece rotors
    XO shifters and rear mech
    Stylo cranks
    Thomson stem with Easton bars
    Fettled Fox air rear shock.

    I'm loving the angles and handling. It's a fun single track bike with a good amount of travel to soak up the stuff that 'cross-country' riding here in BC throws at you. Roll on next summer.

    Why did you install the FOX upside down?

    Even functioning the same, it is more likely dirt enters the dust wiper since the seals are not as tight as a fork wiper, and the propedal lever is very hard to reach.

    It is simple to reverse that.

    That collar below your seat collar is meant to hang cable housings in place wraped with zip ties so they won't scratch the paint job. Else, it is just weight you're adding if not used.

    I hope my advice is not too late!

    Our bikes are very similar

    it operates the same mounted any direction, but i bet it was done to match his fork stanchions perhaps?

    I might flip the shock up the other way. It came installed that way when I got the frame. To be honest the only reason would be to stop dirt/moisture sitting on the seal. I don't think the bike needs to have the propedal shock, it works well with it set fully open.

    Dont worry about that, your Dawg will not come with red crankbolts.
    I like trails with fast descent, up hill is the price to pay to go down. But not so hard, just go down with minimun worries about trenches, rocks and other littles obstacles.
    Usually this trails are about 40 to 60 km in fire roads, single tracks, slowly uphills and a little faster downhills. Ocasionally some drops, but not so impressing.
    My riding style is much more XC and agressive XC than another one and my Kona Dawg give me confidence and security.
    I recommend the bike.

    It is simple to reverse that.
    It is mounted upside down to reduce unsprung weight. By adding the mass to the sprung side it allows to the wheel to travel more smoothly. Old jags use to mount there disc brakes inboard next to the differential for this very reason, more pleasurably ride. But replacing these rotors were a motherfawk. I think this concept here was insignificant in this application, they went back to the standard mounting.

    I like the ETA very much. When blocked the travel is reduced what helps in climbing.
    Off course I dream with a Fox 32 or Marzocchi 700 or a RS Revelation.

    Nice! How does that shock work? Can you tell me what size it is, what spring and how far down from the middle of the upper eye does the spring sit, I mean where it contacts the preload adjuster?

    [QUOTE=Modig]Here's mine in it's current state. Started out with an XC-bike. Upgraded bits and pieces until the frame cracked. Got cheap but beefier frame and have continued upgrading bits as part of the hobby. I have too little experience to say if it rides well or not but it sure feels solid.

    * Frame Size & Color: Cheap Black 2006, 20" noname Taiwan frame. (available under several European "brands"). 3:1 levarage (2.5:1, 2.0:1 mount options)

    Looks just like my cheap AM Taiwan frame!!! I have an "06 KHS AM 2000 I was told that KHS builds this frame for several marks. at any rate the fram is solid. I am going to replace the rear shock with a fox shock with the piggy back resevoir I forget the name. mine came with Shimano Hone groupo so I will not be up grading components. may be later I will change the fork from Marzocchi AM 2 to an AM 1. I've had the bike for 1 week and love it.
    later

    Just saw your post, thanks for the comment. I'm diggin the post, didn't think it would be a permanent thing but I use it a lot more than I thought I would. It's got a lot of use on it so far, and has developed a little bit of play but nothing horrible. Over all solid and reliable, exactly what I like in a good part.

    Interesting. The 2006 AM 2000 indeed looks identical, save for the Horst link and round downtube. I guess the Taiwan factory makes different rear ends for the US and Euro markets (where the Horst patent does not apply).



    I know for sure one big frame manufacturer is https://www.astroeng.com.tw/ . Check out their Maestro rip off which is new for 2008

    Oh yeah, baby! Just a little self indulgence...
    The 55 ATA will be here tomorrow, but I'll have to wait on the Formula brakes until after the first of the year. Apparently that's when they'll be available to ship here in the states.

    You'll be seeing something shortly on the fork, I promise!

    Using them still, at least the version without the coating. They do work nicely, at least when paired with the "right" pads (pads need to be good for high temperatures).
    Your frame does look quite long, what size is that?

    Whoops! After reading up on the Fox DHX 5.0 air or any of Fox air shocks I will keep the Rock Shox Pearl. I'v already had issues on with a blown out fox float that started leaking oil almost immediately after I received it back from Fox.

    Is it true that specialized enduro has milimeters of tire clearance in the fork arch ?
    Can you take a picture of it from the front.

    @ coelhomd,
    i don't have the means to take new pictures at the moment, but clearance hasn't been a problem so far. Right now i'm running a 2.5 nevegal stick-e and clearance is 8 millimeters all around (both at the top and on the sides). I don't have to ride mud too much, but i guess the possibility exixts that a piece of debris could get stuck. Anyone here have problems?

    I think it's the way MBA introduced the bike on their October/2006 magazine freaked me out.



    It appears that any mud ride will lock the front wheel, which is much worse than a rear wheel!

    Kona Coilair Custom Build



    Recently built I am already loving this bike, weighs about 33lbs, climbs great thanks to the fork, a Marzocchi AM1 which I was a little skeptical about but it seems to function awesome so far and it isn't even broken in, I expect it to get a little more "plush". I got the frame from the wheelworld Kona blowout with an added 20% discount, the drive train components I either had lying around or bought on the 26th at performance bike at 8:00 AM, again at 20% off, the fork came from Ebay... the whole build cost me less than $1500.00!!!!

    stem: sette 31.8x60.

    bars: easton monkeylite sl cnt

    shifters: soon to be sram x.0 twist but currently x.7 triggers

    Grips: odi lock on

    Brakes: hayes el camino 6" front and rear (7" front is in the mail)

    cranks: shimano hones (bbg bashguard, alloy hardware, and 36t chainring also in mail)

    derailleurs: front is shimano lx, rear is sram x.9

    I love this bike and I'll continue to ride this baby until the frame brakes!

    Thanks guys,
    i don't know what it weighs since I've never really cared much about weight. I just like the way it performs so I never paid much attention to the weight
    that said, as soon as I get my new parts in and installed, I'll see if I can get a semi accurate (read bathroom scale) weight on it. I'm guessing mid 30's though.

    actually it's not a chain protector but an unpainted section of the frame itself

    that build looks impressive, good work

    I was pretty surprised by this. Now I know I can go with a bigger fork and not end up with a 40 lb bike.

    later guys

    My friend has an 1999 model with the extruded alum frame. he has it set up for black mt. w/ triple tree 8 inch forks up front., he can still out climbl all of us on our xcountry bikes. except for one time when I heard a yell and a crash. he wheelied over during a steep climb. he still beat us to the top. I cant even sit on his bike w/o toppling over, because of the high front end. lol .. but on the downhill he was gone way way ahead of me. I can keep up with him on the flats.

    She rides like I dreamed she would. Like a tractor uphill, and a freaking bobsled back down. I can't imagine upgrading too much - maybe lighter wheels, but I can't even tell you how cheep I got the wheelset. I do plan to get the shock Pushed before the season starts up.

    Thanks! It should work well. Even though it may be pretty now, I will be riding this quite a lot and riding it hard. I guess it won't look pretty for long!

    LOVE the red powdercoat, especially on the fork legs and handlebars. Very tasteful and cool.
    I'm unique, just like everyone else....

    Lovely Heckler. I must admit I do love that colour blue, it looks a sweet rig my friend. Any estimation on weight?

    Lornibear - thanks! As for it's weight, I'm not really too sure but I'm guessing about 31 pounds? Have to get over to my brother's house to use his digital bike scale one of these days...

    Still no snow on the trails here in New York, so I've been getting to ride it quite a bit. Lucky me

    Hate to burst you bubble, but that is not an RP23. That is a DHX Air.

    I wish the US would let some of these Euro bikes into the country, but I guess the patent lawyers would have too much to do. Really nice bike, it looks almost like a Rocky Mountain ETSX of sorts.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.
