    Hey Tim, is that silver San An the one you told me you modified to have some monster travel at one point in time ?

    No, I had both my '98 black and raw finish '00 San Andreas's back before I started working for MC. I messed around with my current red '03 San Andreas, using different mounts, a 9.5" rear shock and an '03 Monster T. I highly recommend against anyone trying this since it rode horribly and is not designed for that type of riding anyway.

    Do you mean a 9.5" eye to eye shock or rear wheel travel after your hot rodding job?
    I'm trying to visualise this "Franken Bike" you created.

    Later, Eric.

    Just so you know; I have no intention of repeating the experiment.

    I said "9.5" rear shock", meaning the rear shock measures nine and a half inches. The rear travel also measured about 9.5" based on the shock's three inch stroke and the 3.1 to 1 leverage ratio.

    A bike friend of mine had probably the same setup a few years ago, a Super Monster T with a shock to "match"
    He mentionend that it rode silly, and i also rode a few feet on it, you almost had to use a ladder to get on, and the riding is horrible indeed.
    He broke his frame during a 10ft drop that same day.

    I had to use many different mounts and bits from different frames to get that long rear shock to fit, I doubt anyone else has gone to the trouble and expense. I only had it together like that to see if it was possible, then quickly took it apart. At the same time, I had my 5" Z1 on the front of my 9.5. Now that was a weird set-up.

    The drop isn't what broke that frame. Bolting a 14lb 12" travel fork to a 6lb frame desinged around a 3" to 6" fork is definitely what killed that frame.

    Remember, there was DH ten and fifteen years ago, but it was much different from the DH of today. The San Andreas is not a modern style DH frame.

    I thought you probably meant what you said, but my brain was having trouble imagining a 9.5" shock mounted in a San Andreas.

    I've got to make me a shim for my San An and try that.

    He had that setup for a few months, I think he had that shock and test fitted it and made one set of shockmounts to get it as far up to the frontseattube as possible.
    About the broken frame, it sure was due to the frontfork, he knew that too.

    That looks so much like the East Bay Regional Park District, back home in the San Francisco Bay Area, that its making me homesick.
    Where was that photo taken?

    You need a 2001 or earlier main frame with the VPS front shock mount. The 2002 (and newer) uses a cartridge bearing main pivot and would not work with your swingarm.

    Hope this helps.

    No, nothing that high. We had rolling hills no higher than 2500 ft. in the East Bay park system. What is amazing, is the resembalence in the photos, to the open tree less areas of the East Bay Parks.
    The color of the grass, dirt on the road and rocks, combined with the way the terrain is laid out, looks like parts of California's foothill areas.

    Hey all, great lookin MC's!!

    Here is my new Rumble Just bought the frame and moved all my old components over from my old ride (Specialized Pro). It's been a few years since I rode, but now am living in Beijing so I thought I'd climb back in the saddle.

    After seeing all the great reviews on the Rumble frame I luckily found one at a bike shop near my place.....WOOOT~~!! Since I BMX'd alot when I was a kid, this frame seemed to be just what I needed. I never liked my old Specialized with rear suspension (lousy early rear suspension design) cuz it never felt stable.

    Due to a lack of fund'age I couldn't buy some new 130mm single crown forks, but the shop had this used Marzocchi Junior T 03 at a great price. I gathered from reading reviews that 130mm travel is just right for this frame, but my old Rock Shox Indy forks were 80mm, and that just seemed like it would ruin the ride (or my face when endo'ing) so I got the Junior T's.

    Anyhow, I was hoping someone could shed some light on the probs I may encounter running this fork. Most of my riding is around the city, but I'd love to hit the mountains on the outskirts to catch some air. The folks at the bike shop are DH nutters, so I'm sure I'll have to join them sometime soon Any comments are appreciated

    Regards,
    Chris

    The only problems will be when you are doing BMX style riding since you'll have slacker geometry and won't be able to do x-ups. Your bike will be better for riding with the ""DH nutters", since the longer front travel and slacker geometry will help you out. Don't worry about the bigger fork damaging the frame, you'll be fine. I had a huge *' Monster T on my Rumble for a while, no problem,

    Cheers fellas, glad to hear the frames integrity isn't being compromised with this fork. I'm taking it out to a local bmx track this week to get some small air.......it's been a while and these guys at the bike shop are pretty persistent on getting me out there, so perhaps the flatter bmx track will be good practice. I hope it doesn't take too long to get used to the weight of the front end

    Thanks again for the help!

    My original San Andreas

    Hi folks, I am new here and glad to find some fellow Mountain cycle owners.
    Here is my San Andreas that I have had from new since about '94 or '95. Changed a few things over the years (rear shock, forks) but I love this bike!!
    See you in the Peak District, UK sometime....
    PS Does anyone know how I can fit modern disc brakes onto the old Pro Stop lugs on the rear swing arm?

    MMMMM, are they Brembos on the 9.5?

    Peak Panther - that's how my San An started out, when the mainframe failed it was replaced with the red front end, then the seat tower went after that and was replaced with the newer style. I'd love another old style "tubular" seat tower though. Touch wood the swingarm is going strong nearly 15 years down the line!
    I reckon BETD would make a mount up for you, maybe Twisted could find the CAD drawings for the original Pro-Stop - IS mount?

    Thought I'd scan a couple in from back in the day - this would be 93/94.
    Original elastomer aftershock - 2.5" (?) of completley undamped goodness. Bought a Risse Genesis (which is still perfect now) pretty soon after I got Buckaroo'd over the bars! that took it to 3" travel. I now run a DT Swiss air shock, 152mm eye to eye which gives 3.75" travel. I tried it with a 165mm shock (giving 4.5" travel) and just didn't get on with it.

    Halson Inversion forks, XT/XTR (7 speed thumbies, still on the Cove now!) and Pace rings - 24, 38, 52. And of course a 2.2 Smoke/Dart. I really wish Panaracer would remake the 2.2 Dart. They were a true revelation in steering back then.

    Are there any of the original stickers still availabe anywhere?

    Gus, thats another one that should get posted in the Vintage, Retro, Classic Forum's photo gallery. Which by the way, is a link in post one, not the actual thread. Although it would look nice next to Shawn's.
    As for the stickers, I'd post a thread and ask, some of the MC people are hording those things. You never know what might turn up.

    What's under Gus's kilt?


    Something big and red !

    I'd like to point out that the occasional effect of a crash is not long lasting, normally cured with Gluwein (mulled wine) and much Red Bull and red Vodka (Flugl's)!

    Just in case there's any laydee MC owners....

    Here' my 1999 or 2000 San Andreas (not sure year - pre steer-stopper).

    Anyone know what year the San An got the Steer-stopper upgrade? Was it 2001?

    I went with pure function on the parts pick as every other dime I have goes into grad school. Soon I'll fit her up with discs and maybe an RP3.

    That's an interesting use of a brake noodle on the rear dérailleur.
    Does it help shifting?

    It's kinda ghetto but it works good for me when using just one front ring. I don't think it's any better than full housing though. The rear derailleur doesn't swing as much around it's main pivot with just one front ring as when you have three. I think it may bind up a bit if it were to swing any more than it does - but I may be wrong.

    This is my '05 Sin, I sold my Giant Faith after breaking my wrist downhilling & wanted something less like a battering ram. I haven't done anything much to it yet myself but have big plans; Saint cranks, gold Halo Tornado rims, Fox 36's, X.0 drivetrain.

    Hi here's a couple of pics of my fury. i'm currently running a 5th element coil while my rp3 is getting fixed. Have to say the back end is so much plusher with the coil shock. Maybe i should get the fox pushed?

    Solutions:

    1. The chip way: Buy a second hand Fury, appx 50% from original price
    2. More expansive: New Frame + second hand parts, more work to you.
    3. More Expansive: New frame + "Spluttering" of chip bike with good parts (like Mongoose Teocali Expert, Saracen, Fuji)
    4. Sale season from some shop
    5. Be positive – If you wish it will come trough

    Good Luck

    I sold my kona coiler frame on ebay after i bought this frame on ebay also. got 375.00 gbp for my coiler and paid 250.00 for the fury, bargain!!!! The fury is a much better all round ride and the rear suspension is so much plusher and a lot more supple than the kona. I seen a fury frame recently on ebay that sold for 100.00 and was like new. So if you keep your eyes peeled there are definatley bargains to be had. BIG shout out to Jonny my Irish brethren!!

    I'm scrimping just to get my San Ans (Donna's) shock overhauled.

    After seeing Gus' stable of bikes, I can't imagine him without something big and red under his kilt.

    Howdy All,

    Thought it was about time to post my San An here! It's bit Super Motard at the moment due to more urban being ridden than dirt.



    Spec (for the bits you can't see):

    Hope: Hubs, brakes, headset, rear skewer, stem.
    FSA: XC120 Carbon bars
    SRAM: X.0 rear + shifter, chain

    The shock is an old Swinger 3 Way that will be replaced with an RP23 soonish as it's not really all that great on this bike.

    This is my third San An and is a bit of a franken bike with an '00 front end mated to an '03 rear (modified to allow for the through shaft instead of the bearings). I started with a '93, back in '93, then had a 2003, which was stolen last year and finally this one. Not that I need to say it but best bikes ever made.

    I've never seen anyone match the new swingarm to the old main frame. Looks like you are running a spacer between the swingarm clamp and the pivot shaft, and continuing with the the bushing pivot.

    If I had to do it, I'd machine a plug to fill the big pivot hole in the frame, with a the center drilled and tapped for the 10mm pivot bolts and catridge bearings. Some industrial epoxy should keep the plug in place.

    How is your adapter working?

    It was a bit more complicated than that

    The swingarm was actually damaged at the clamps (long and stupid story) so was a throwaway, replaced by a new one and that was on the bike that was stolen. As I could not find a new frame at the time, we decided to do the mate.

    Basically the clamps were repaired and then a bush was made and welded into place (by a very good frame repair place). The bushes negate the need for any additional spacers and it all works nicely.

    While I liked the bearing arrangement, this was the safest option and I never really had too much of an issue with the shaft on the original.

    Here's my Fury with a new warranty replacement swingarm, which Krien summoned from somewhere because there was none in stock. Much appreciated!

    It took less than a year's worth of normal XC/AM riding and *snap* No big drops or other kinds of abuse. TWISTED mentioned something about a weaker batch of swingarms (see this), it was probably one of those. This new arm will hopefully be as strong as it should be.

    my Moho STS! I've decided it needs some discs so the noleen and spinergys are gonna have to go soon. sure the fork has limited travel, and the rims have been known to kill people, but its been a good ride so far

    I mean, I know its built by Noleen, but I was trying to remember if Girvin designed it.

    Yup, its a Girvin design. In fact they made this exact fork (same colors, shock, everything) but instead of saying Noleen on the legs it said Girvin. Much different design that the old crappy Girvin Vector's...the Crosslink ELT was the newest (and last) gen. design. Noleen bought them out somewhere along the way but kept the design. They also made these with carbon legs and the K2 smart shock.

    My new Zen

    This is my new Zen. I'm yet to really ride it (Wisc winter and all). I have a minute 3 on the front (100 mm) and a Fox float on the back. The wheels are XT/mavic717 and I'm running it as 1x8 just to keep things simple.

    How do you like the X Fusion Air? They look like a nice alternative to the big brands, but I haven't seen much info about them.

    The X-Fusion shock is pretty good. Better than I expected. It is like any other air shock really. Not the best for small bumps due to stiction, but very good every where else. I like the fact I can lock it out. They can usually be bought pretty cheap if you find one which makes them a good deal. Both rebound and compression damping are adjusted with one lever, meaning if you increase rebound, you increase compression as well. Simple and works better you would think.I would buy one again if I could. No "stuck down" like a Fox air shock.

    Let us know how the Hope wheels pan out. I'm a huge Hope fan and have been wondering about their new hoops for a while...

    My 3 Rigs

    I've posted this before but what the heck!

    Shockwave 9.5





    Sin





    San Andreas DNA





    3 rigs





    The DNA now has Dual Duty rear wheels, x9 shifter / der and both the Sin & DNA have cheesy zoke fenders. The Shockwave will soon have a CCDB as the Romic is currently being serviced and will be set as my back up shock,

    I now have some miles on them, a few rides, and work flawlessly (as expected )
    The reduced weight is staggering, they are about 2,75 Lbs !! lighter than the wheels it replaced.
    They are very nice to see, and strong enough for XC and AM.

    The rearhub does make noise, but that is just music to my ears
    If you hate noise from you're rearhub, these are not for you.....

    Nice Rides Shawn..
    I think that's the first pic I've seen of your Moho. It looks awesome!!!

    How do you like the Cross Rides?
    I've had a set for over a year now and I'm very impressed with them.
    Especially for the price.

    I think they are great for the money. Not the lightest around, but they work good.

    The Moho is going to become a 9 speed soon. I have a Revelation U-Turn air on the way for the new SA, the Minute 3 is going on the Classic and the Psylo is going back on the Rumble SS for my Girl friend's son.

    I bought those at a Mountain Cycle garage sale for $20, before they moved from San Luis Obispo. I also have a red set that were part of the original Classic build.

    Fury with Sin relaxed geometry cleat.
    I'm borrowing the Swinger 4 way coil shock until my 3 Way air gets back from a rebuild.

    Yeah It's slack but it feels pretty good for aggressive riding

    What is the travel with the relaxed cleat?

    One thing I thought of, but never have tried, is to remove spring, then lay the bike down on a fixed piece of paper, then mark on paper fully extended then fully compressed and measure difference maybe at axle position. Or even trace the axle path as it moves if possible.

    Ok ummm..
    This is not very accurate because I had to do it by myself with the bike in a work stand. it was a pain with the damping. But here goes...
    It came to 85mm Doh!!!! that includes the 15mm bottomout bumper.
    I want to wait until someone else is around and do it again so I can also trace the axle path.

    It's strange because it feels like more travel than that...

    I was going to sell this frame, because I just didn't use it, but my GF's son wants to ride it, so last night I put it back together. It weighs 28.5 pounds. It will be his first Mtn bike and I think he'll have fun with it.

    Sweet!!!! At 36.5 lbs you must have built it up to take a beating...
    How do you like the Domain now that you have had a few rides on it?
    I really like mine..

    Did you head out early to beat the heat and humidity..
    Wish I did lol..

    No Beatings for this frame The frame has to last the summer
    Between the 823's, Domain & Flats, it starts to add up quick! I really like the Domain so far. I have no complaints...
    I rolled out from my house for a local ride @ 6:20am today. 10.5 miles later, the temp was up 11 deg. from the start. This afternoon must have been tough

    Ha Ha Well nice build!!! You don't need to worry about the parts breaking..
    That's why my bikes are both tanks...
    Yeah the afternoon was bad. One of these days I'll learn to ride early.

    The only difference between my XC bike build and DH build is the Cranks & Stem. Makes it easy this way if I need spare parts for one. As much as I would like to build a lightweight XC bike, I hate walking out of the woods even more

    I hear that.. Light parts around here just don't last..
    My original intension was to set the Fury up as a light trail bike and the Bullit as a All Mountain-freeride bike.
    "Well" after some trial and error my Fury weighs 33.5 lbs and my Bullit weighs 34.5..
    I'd rather have a reliable bike than a light bike.
    Now who want's to buy a DHX Air..

    Nice bike...I really like the silver ones...
    How do you like the seat post? I like mine. It really helps for aggressive riding on bikes without a full seat tube.
    Here's a tip if you ever have a problem with it slipping like I did.
    You can replace the upper clamp with a size 32.0 Salsa or other quality QR clamp.
    Mine hasn't moved since..

    Thanks - first San An I saw was a silver (back in 95) and always liked the look - got my silver zaskar in 96 and it was 2003 before I went full suss with the Mountain Cycle. I was a little surprised that there don't seem to be colour options with the Classic reissues - the polished ones look amazing, and if I remember right they took a polished one with the new stickers to last year's Interbike.

    Thanks for the seatpost tip - I don't adjust the seat that much, but I've got so many qr clamps that I'll give it a go.

    Yup - ball burnished, pics in the "post your GT" thread on the GT forum. What other makes do Mountain Cycle owners ride? (although I like the "collect the set" idea that a lot of MC riders have, especially since the Rumble is such a nice hardtail).

    The GT looks nice..Now go polish it.. j/k I just did a swingarm what a pain....

    I own other brands but they are not worthy of posting here...

    I'm waiting for the new MC's to come out so I can replace them..

    For other makes I have a 05 SC Bullit I got really cheap last year ($275 frame) So I couldn't resist.I also have a Gary Fisher hardtail I bought new in 2001.
    If you want to see pics of them they are in my profile.

    I'm waiting for the new MC's to come out so I can replace the other brands..
    Right now the other brand in my stable aside from MC is a Marin Quake. It replaced my defunked Sin and would serve as my FR bike until MC comes out with a worthy replacement that has a stronger /more reliable/bomb proof frame and good geometry.

    Here is a pic of my Sin replacement:

    Nice ride!

    I hope mine turns out as nice... I need to get the rest of the parts, and hopefully I can locate some MC stickers for it.. or get the SIN logo re-produced for the swingarm.

    Thanks, yes I 'borrowed' your idea for the mudflap - great idea!
    Seatpost - I was trying out a different seating position as i'm 6ft, gone back to a straight post now.

    Dude have you been hitting the 4th of July beer supply a little early?!

    Sholmes, nice finish on the frame, white and black are very "in" colors at the moment.
    Good luck with the rest of your build. Post it up when your done!

    New and improved 2009 Rumble

    Just came off the delivery truck yesterday. Brushed aluminum would not have been my first choice but when I saw it in front of me, it looked incredible. This is the medium(long) version of the two sizes. Time to get it dirty

    some "useful" numbers

    Same angle as my old '03, but I can't confirm(70 deg.). Headtube length is the still the same at 5.4", Seattube diameter is the same at 34.9mm but now accepts a 27.2 seatpost instead of the old 30.9. Chainstay might be shorter b/c it seems like there is less clearance between the tire and the seattube. Effective TT length may be a tad longer than the '04 medium but i'm not sure of the number...

    New Old Rumble Build

    I thought I’d post my finished Rumble build. All work was done by me, except the frame prep (BB shell chase/face, HT ream/face).

    My goal for this project was to build a cheap, fun, all around hardtail to beat on. I wanted solid mid level components at low cost. I planned to make it a 2x9, but it would have required me to change some parts I already had, (BB/tires/FD) so for now it’ll be a 1x9.

    I wanted a little different look, so I chose white wheels/bars. The tires are overkill, but with no rear suspension, they’ll help. They’re also lighter for their size at around 900 grams each. Intense lists them as an “all purpose” tire. I guess I’ll see.

    Most parts were bought over a period of 3 months, and I managed to find a lot of good deals. I cheaped out on a couple minor pieces, but hopefully that won’t come back to bite me. As usual, it cost more than I thought it would, but the fun is well worth it. This was my third bike build, and I’m into the whole process. Research, Buy, Build, Tweak. especially Build/Tweak. I haven’t set the fork up properly yet, but I’ve been researching it, and I’ll be pulling it apart soon. It isn’t a great fork, but properly tweaked it should be fine for me.


    Here’s the component list:

    Frame: 2004 Mountain Cycle Rumble Aluminum

    Fork: 2006 Marzocchi Drop off-1 130mm, SSV, ETA, 20mm axle

    Tubes: Continental Presta valve

    Crankset: 2007 Truvativ Hussefelt 175mm, Salsa 32t Ring, FSA Clear Bashguard

    BB: 2007 Truvativ Howitzer 51mm chainline

    Cassette: Sram PG 970 11-34t

    Derailleur: 2006 Shimano LX M580 GS

    Chain: Sram PC 971

    Shifter: 2006 Shimano LX M580

    Cables: Shift-Shimano LX/SP-41, Brake-Shimano LX/M sys

    Brakes: 07/08 Avid BB7 Disc, 165mm Clean Sweep Rotors, FR5 Levers

    Bars: Azonic Strip Bar 31.8

    Grips: Oury Lock On

    Stem: Truvativ 60mm 7 deg Holzfeller, with Hussefelt clamp

    Headset: FSA PIG, Two 5mm alloy spacers

    Seatpost: Titec Hellbent silver 30.9mm

    Collar: Kona Wingnut 34.9mm

    Saddle: WTB Speed V

    Pedals: Wellgo Platform (V8 copy)

    I like it.
    Super Clean and reliable component spec.
    If you get the chance, try a new Shadow dérailleur, they are the bomb!

    Here's my Rumble build.....

    It's a build made to take a beating, and come back for more. Most of the parts aren't super-expensive, just in case something breaks. It's got some old-school stuff on it too. The Kore B-52 stem and Ringle headset to name a couple. These have been with me for years, with no troubles ever. Tell what you think.

    Awesome. You polished it. Happy with the results? Did you polish it by hand or use an actual buffer?
    I am going to do mine soon. will wait until i have parts to build it, other wise it will sit around and get dusty and go dull.
    Nice work.

    Yeah, I'm happy with the result. Did it all by hand using 320,400,600,800,100,2500 grade sandpaper ,then Mothers Alu polish. You should go for it on yours. I've got spare swingarm decals if you need them

    nice! i have a Tremor frame on its way to me,think i may have to get the polish out for that too. how long did the job take? i have polished a GT Zaskar frame but there is not so much frame to polish on that.

    Cheers, Yeah, definitely go for polishing I think it looks best. It took about 3 hours a day for two weeks to polish. The main and sub frame are really easy to do, you'll find its the swingarm that takes the time away, loads of little tough to get at nooks & crannies. Also, you may have to reuse your decals or polish around them, MC didn't have any when I asked apart from the swingarm ones, which I think they gave me the last of.

    MC_Tremor The bike looks great!!!

    I have a semi off topic question for you guys.
    Does anyone know how to clean - remove Mothers polish?
    I have a swingarm I need to prep for paint (don't ask ) and the polish needs to be removed first.
    Thanks
    Eric

    Pretty build! I think white is by far the Rumble's best color. Your component color scheme ties in nicely. Have you had the frame long? I couldn't find a white Rumble, only red. I posted it last week. My red is green with envy over your white...

    My Zen - Nowadays

    Hi All,
    I've been riding my Zen for a couple of months now. I bought the frame in December or around then as a $350 dollar deal from Adreniline. I was planning to get out for a great year of XC but Wisc Spring weather had other ideas. The spring was almost rained out, really a pathetic start to the season. It's been dry for a while now so I've had a chance to test out the new bike over my favorite trails. My overall impression is that I'm very happy with it. I find the handling predictable and the frame sturdy for the most part. I'd noticed the loose feeling/flexy in the rear that others on here had mentioned. Turned out it was simply that the main pivot was a touch loose - a quick twitch on that cured my gripes completely.
    I find the bike is good at most things, I'm still mucking about with suspension settings but it doesn't fail anywhere. It looks thoroughly cool, this bike has great lines. This may be an odd thing to praise but the paint is incredibly durable - best finish of any bike I've owned.

    I tend to be patient and thrifty when it comes to parts and buy mid levels components at very low prices. The entire machine has cost me something like $900 bucks so far.
    The build is as follows:
    2006 MC Zen frame,
    Rock Shox Recon 351
    Mavic 717 rims tied to XT hubs
    Fox float shock
    Zion seat post ($7 and the best post I've owned)
    WTB speed V saddle
    Bontrager sport 80 mm stem
    Truvative handle bars
    Sram X9 8 speed twist shifter
    Truvative Husslefelt two ring crank (170 mm)
    Truvative giga bottom bracket
    Sram X-7 rear derailleur
    Shimano deor front derailleur
    Avid BB7 and BB5 brakes with Avid levers
    Sram 851 cassette
    WTB velociraptor tires (which suck in the mud but do everything else well)

    No conventional wisdom, just current wisdom. Reinvented knowledge that is seldom relevant as the variable landscape is vast.

    New to me 05 Rumble.
    I had to pick this up so my screen name would make sense again..
    I really like this bike. It fits great and the geometry is spot on, but damn I forgot how stiff these things are..

    Yep,
    & with the wider bars/shorter stem it seems to go even better. Both climbing & descending.
    Yesterday i rode through steep trails with loose rock (Immitos mountain, western slopes nearby the ancient stonecutting area) & the bike just cleared everything.
    I am very pleased.

    I posted this in another thread somewhere, but I think it belongs here...





    Its my old Zen rebuilt for my wife with all new bits. Only thing that remains from the old build is the fork and headset, everything else is brand new. Looks a lot nicer than it used to.

    A few updates to my Fury.
    I already have a aggressive AM/Light Freeride bike, So I decided to lighten up my Fury and lower the front end for those longer days in the saddle.

    I added a Manitou Minute Air fork, Mavic CrossRide Disc wheelset,
    Azonic AZ-7 bars, and a old seat post with a little setback I had laying around.(I have a new one on the way)

    I'm really liking it!!! The last time I had a fork this short on the bike was when I first built it up.
    I forgot how well it worked.
    My other bikes have been collecting dust since I built this back up

    The fork is getting a little tired though and I'm planning to replace it.
    Any suggestions for a good 130 to 145mm travel fork on a budget?????

    Happy New Year Everyone!!!!!!

    Yeah, yeah, I know. The chain isn't on the bike. I had just finished cleaning up the bike and degreasing the chain, and forgot to put it back on.

    Hi, new guy here so be gentle....

    The first picture is of my old San Andreas 2004 model which I regretfully sold, however I have recently been able to buy a new one.

    The new bike (2nd and 3rd images) is a NOS 2004 model with a Float RL shock, fork is also a NOS Marzocchi RAC that I have been saving for a special occasion... This time I wont be so dumb to sell it.

    I hope you like it?

    Dan
