    Woah! Brown Santa hooked us UP today!

    I'm used to getting a lot of cool stuff in, but today was definitely better than most. Got back from a ride and found a big ol' pile of sweet parts waiting. Frames, 07' 66-SL's, Code brakes, new X.9. front derailleurs, 29'er Nevegal's, etc. etc. The new X.9. front der looks FAR better than the previous X-Gen one, nice to see that it should now be genuine competition for the XT front.

    66 SL pics. I know it isn't the suspension forum, but Homers seem to have more 66's per capita than everyone else combined
    5lbs 8.8oz, or 5lbs12oz with axle. I think this will definitely be one of the hottest forks of 07', very impressed so far. Weight seems very reasonable for how beefy it is.

    SHWING! Now that's an impressive haul.

    How many of those boxes contain Lyrik warranty replacement forks?

    The ATA added some weight, eh?

    Those Codes look really nice but heavy. If I didn't like my Hopes I'd be all over those.

    Do you know when the Ultimates are expected to be available?

    Well, they're made with lard-butts in mind. They were almost hard to control they were so powerful once bedded in on the Highline, and I weight 195 suited up. They would turn a bike into a trebuchet for Barny, I imagine.

    Yeah, the Code's are heavy (over 600g) but crazy powerful. I've had Ultimates in stock for a couple weeks.

    I would imagine they'll do the same for me . Being relatively light, I really don't need much braking power. Well at least no more than a Hope 6Ti with a 200mm rotor

    Um pimping I don't know if Id have the patience to open so many boxes of UGI

    The 66 graphics are so cool mine look so retro now but Im still happy I went RC2X 06.

    Im liking that X9 fr D that might have to go on the Spot and the old Xgen might be down graded to the RFX no Shimano on my Turners

    Um how available are they V

    nothing quite gets the juices flowing like new kit unless ya putting it on yr ride just installed too sets of new brakes tonight on Mudgies Spot and TAs ticket 2 ride yeahaaaa

    Tell me about it. I was sitting here with my credit card actually out in my hand making an unrelated online purchase when I clicked on this thread. BIG Mistake.

    Let me take a look see...yeah, I need one of those X9 FD's, and a pair of those Codes (weight is irrelevant...see the siggy below ). Good thing I already got an '06 66 (and I don't need the extra travel). Or else I'd really be in trouble. Still gonna be poor, though.

    On the bright side, my wife is gonna divorce me, so I'll have even more time to ride and no one to tell me it's not rational to spend more on any one component (fork, brakes...take your pick) than it costs to buy a decent hardtail.

    The smell is the remnants of my breakfast. *burp* The cranks are take-off XTR-960 that I found on Ebay without chainrings for a decent price. The rings and bashguard will be Blackspire courtesy of Larry along with full 2007 X.9 goodies.

    In my area we have a lot of rock gardens and logs to clear. I can't bunny-hop to save my life so I opt for a bashring. I did order a big ring so that I can swap it out for when I head to smoother trails. There is a 24-hour race that my club and I attend in Ontario that definitely needs the big ring as it's fast and smooth for the most part.

    Bag on me? Wait till you see pics of the Flux mounted with the triple-crown fork.

    I know the RC2X will be offered in 1.5", I don't think the others will but I can check to verify that.

    What are the differences between it and the Xgen? Is the cage any wider? Performance better? I have to say the Xgen leaves a bit to be desired - I probably would have thrown it out the window if I didnt run twisties.

    I guess what I am asking is why do I need to buy the new X9?

    Nice, that new 66 SL, along with a new X-9 drivetrain and a few other choice bits are gonna put a serious hurtin' on my credit card real soon. Thanks for sharing, I think...

    Check your voice mail, Larry. Someone I know is eager to take a pair of Nevegal 29" tires off your hands -- in exchange for some money, of course.

    Drool.
    I know air-sprung forks are getting better but I'm still a bit
    As usual I'll wait for the first few owners to give these a proper shake down before reaching for my wallet. Definitely.

    Probably.

    ok, maybe.

    Check the feedback on the '06 66SL... It's my third big Zoke and for me it lacks for nothing compared to my '03 Z1 coil, or my '05 AM1(coil/air assist) Actually I've found it to be a substantial improvement over both in feel and performance.

    The '07s should be spanky.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    It seems folks are jumping on the CODE bandwagon en masse, but I'm gonna be a RENEGADE and buy something else. Larry is hooking me up with some Formula K24's, 8 inch front and rear. Allready proven technology, at a lighter weight, and strongest TESTED dual piston calipers around. Yea baby.
    Why didn't I go for the ultra high bling gold color Oro's? To save money for more UGI.

    Going against the Homer trend like that will earn you banishment for sure. Are you sure you want to risk that?

    The Homer style is to get the DHR and equip it with a SID World Cup Black Box Carbon fork and some of those skinny, tiny BMX racerboy wheels and tires. But who knows, you might set a new trend for the Homers. They do like to buy new parts every month or so, so a new trend would help them with their tendency to "upgrade" the bike more often than they ride it.

    I'm looking for that Cadillac-like ride. My research leads me to believe that this is the fork for me.


    The fork is actually a Fox F100X lest you think I was serious. Build specs will be posted once I get the bits I'm missing from Larry.

    That brings back memories. T66 used to have a HUGE, 4" travel, dual crown Zocchi Mr.T on his XCE. He always commented how DT was freaking out about it. The bike rode well until he smashed it into the garage
