    It's Here

    Finally got my XCL today, Very happy with it so far. The manual say I can't use my FireX crankset because of the small ring crank bolts hitting the swingarm pivot bolts, but it seems to have a flat heat bolt on the drive side and a button head on the other. I put the cranks on and there is no interferance, but is very close, about .5mm is this bolt the fix to the problem?
    I will call the Chumba tomorrow. Here's a few pics so far, I will get my seatpost tomorrow so the clamping on the tube in the pictures is very lite and is curently laying down on my work bench since my little boy wanted to tighten the clamp as hard as he could. also my fork will arrive tomorrow, I went with a Fox Vanilla R

    Ride Report

    When I first got the idea of getting a new bike I was really going back and fourth about the travel I needed. I never really bottomed out my 105 and we do alot of climbing here in SoCal, So I thought the 140 would be just to much for me, but we also do alot of steep rocky descents here too. So I wanted something a bit beefier to give me more confidence on those descents. All my worries were gone after Sunday, it climbed very good, I did have to slide up a bit more on the seat, but no big deal, I cleared everything I cleared before. One big thing I did notice when climbing really steep short sections when you got to really get forward and crank, you can really feel the rear end bite down, I didn't lose traction at all. Descending was great, stiff as hell and *****in with the 140, I cruised through stuff I used to slow down for before. I actually almost ate it a couple of times because I was going too fast, it felt so good. I wanted to get a Talas , but got a Vanilla instead for money reasons, but am very happy with it. Overall a *****in ride Sorry no action shots, I ride solo most of the time.

    ...that you consider our shop. We are close to Chumba - location and relationship wise. Chumba and Lenzsport are our main brands, we won't try to talk you into a Turner or an Ellworth.

    It's a medium, I do not know the weight yet, will post once I do.
    Just switched the Fire XC pros 2.1 to WTB Mutano Raptos 2.4. Much better
