    testing my self made DHX

    We hit the trails with our self made DHX . I don’t know exactly how its travel had changed as I was on my own rig but my friend was super satisfied with it. ( I recently made my pal’s Vanilla R air boost adjustable ( read the thread in the same forum))

    Also I was with my rebuilt shock .I didn’t change any part on mine .Only Changed the fluid ‘ O-rings ‘ cleaned it up and bled it. And whoooa it made great difference .Recently my shocks fluid had gone bad . I mean it had lost its characteristics during 1.5 year and had some bubbles ( not few ) .
    The new fluid I used worked great . I got a Citroen power steering fluid which I felt it had the closest viscosity to Fox’s original 7 Wt.

    Very pleased with it . Totally progressive . Ate up the first few inches .For big things neatly ended the stroke like as it was bottomless.

    But one day isn’t enough for testing that I should wait more.

    Pics:

    1 : Hard impacts .low speed drops on flat.

    2 : Thats me on the same drop

    3 : A long jump with super smoth landing i love it and jump the longest distance in our gang.

    4 : We call it donkey working .Actually its trail maintenance with no tools bad our body.

    Nice man! I would love to know some more specifics on how the shock performed when it was just a VAN compared to now. I feel kind of in the dark about the performance side of things! Just wanted to say you are the man for taking on a finishing this project.

    Ride on
    Passion is what we all need, the rest is secondary.
    Yeah I ride fixed on occasion, get over it.

    I gotta give props. Nice work Saber.

    I have to admit, I saw your other thread, read about your little disassembly mishap and thought, "uh oh, their just gonna ruin a good shock" - I did'nt think we'd hear any more about it.

    Now here you are back, and with a positive outcome to the story. I've got to congratulate you, man. I'm pretty mechanically inclined, but I'd never attempt that.

    Looks like y'all have good riding there...

    Totally rockin idea. Custom making a shock aint easy, you should drop off a resume to Fox. But that's pretty bada$$, I'd be stoked to see the buildup.

    Thanx to every body .
    We rode our rigs today too. The shocks got better as the fluid is breaking in.

    Oooh i missed some really cool shots today as i aint brought my cam. A friend has got his new bike ( Kona Stab Superme 08 kona calls it FBI = Fabian Barel International ) .
    he did a drop never done before actually coz we hadnít found it. A big stylish 15 footer .
    Ill make sure to put some pix of it later.

    You're writing from Iran?!?!? For real? I did'nt know that. Man, you guys have got some sweet terrain over there.

    Where do you get bikes and other stuff from? Mail order? Or are there bike shops there?

    Big Mike When there are riders who would pay money for bike stuff Some people would open LBS's .And to inform you our LBS's arnt few here.

    I have compared many western countries with Iran . The expences are vey low in comparation to the average income for overall. The majority of people over here have plenty of spare time and money .But MTB isnt that much recognized my the youth . Most guys would get a car andhave fun with that.
