    Rigid Superfly

    Blew out my Fox fork so I threw this on....fully rigid = superlight, wicked fast and capable of delivering a beatdown like nothing else. I need stronger brakes to slow this sucker down.

    How's the chain line? I'm building up a carbon ss fly right now and never realized just how wide the bb95 is. And did you go with a ss specific hub?

    Its around 19lbs, my scale isn't very accurate. I had an 05 Rig and it handles a lot like that one. Not as nimble in the twisties but it is very stable at speed.

    The G2 fork helps the bike carve up the tight stuff much better. With a non G2 fork, the steering slows down and tends to drift to the outside of turns.

    Mine is a 2010, no BB92 (I think they went BB92 in 2012) so I'm would not be able to comment on chainline for your bike. I usually run a SS specific rear hub, its definitely worth the investment, I use a thru axle too (DT240 SS hub and DT QR 10mm axle) for a real stout setup..

    esku you're not the only mtbr member with seller remorse of the superfly niner fork setup. Any feedback on why you let it go? I've seen a large superfly/niner ss weigh in at 15.XX lbs!!!

    @LIV2RYD: You have Formula R1's and the braking isn't good enough?

    Why I let it go?... a fullish mistake
    It was 17-18 lbs as in the picture.

    Truth be told, they are excellent brakes. The only reason why I made the comment was because I had just finished my 1st ride with the rigid fork and it was cold out so I had thick gloves on. I found the braking point was a little too close to the bar so I was late on my braking in some fast spots. I have since adjusted the lever further from the bar and its all good again.

    All of the Superfly SS frames have a standard english thread BB.

    did one in 2008 and i loved it without the G2 fork. imho it handled like a pig with it on. drifted all over the place when climbing and felt floppy like a downhill bike. the bonty carbon switchblade without G2 geometry and a shorter a/c length really woke the bike up and made the handling razor sharp. interestingly enough, the fox G2 handles great on an EMD where it still resides.
