    Im running a 42T ring. My chainline is not optimal but i deal w/ it. I have an 02. The o4/05 eliminator is 150mm compared to the 135mm 02. Might help the chainline and u might get a 44T if u got a 05. Im swithing to a 38T just cause i got a different set of cranks.

    Im using the azonic 454 BB. Its available in 2 lengths i think. I weight 210 and used a 700lb spring in the fox shock but a 550 w/ the avalanche shockAny other questions ask away.

    chainring that big???

    Karpiel -

    I have been following your posts in the Texas board...

    My question is - What are you running a chainring that big for in Texas? There cannot be hills big enough to turn that bad boy. Please let me know if there are some hills there that have sprung up lately, as I will be returning there for part of the summer. I grew up in the Houston area, but have now since moved to Utah where the riding is a little better (understatement of the year). I will be moving back to Houston for an internship, but I will be bringing my ride, so I am interested in doing some urban rides on the weekends with you folks. I will PM you when I get down there; likely towards the end of April.

    Good luck with the chainring situation. I look forward to riding with some big bikes down there.

    Doctor

    yes

    arrow dhx rims are heavy, but they are STRONG.

    i have ridden mine for three years now, no problems other than a folded sidewall at Northstr last summer. However, crescent wrench did the trick, and it has been running like a champ ever since. Because I enjoy riding more than wrenching on my bike, I tend to ignore some maintenance issues etc. until they are really bad. This story has significance to your question because I rode Flying Monkey and the Red Bull Rampage course for two solid days of hard riding with about 1/3 of my spokes loose enough to play a tune. I mean LOOSE. However, rim didnt even feel it. Very strong.

    Good luck with your build...

    And we need to hook up when I go back to that crappy town for the summer.
