My Rig Finally Done

Postby dtufino » Tue Jun 10, 2008 7:06 pm

So i went ahead and got the Obtainium Ti Spring for my RockShox Vivid Check out the difference:

With Stock 350lb Coil

With Obtanium 300lb Ti Spring
Image

Bike now weighs 39.5 Lbs with the Profile Cranks.... lol

Thanks to the Morewood guys for the hook up, and thanks to the Obtainium guys for a quick turnaround on delivering the Ti Spring.

Can't wait to test this baby in Platty/Whiteface/Snowshoe/Highland!

a fox 40 would be best for those who are racers and great riders... i just do this as a hobby, but i don't see the need for a fox40 at all...

my Boxxer team does a great job handling my fat ass!

kinda of a weird statement considering you are getting your bike into race weight by throwing on a $300 spring for a 1lb savings.

Don't get me wrong the bike and build looks sick and the weight is great, but you traded a sinister linkage for a single pivot???? que pasa meng! Does morewood offer a floating brake option? that single pivot brake jack can be hazardous to your health! How does the bike handle compared to your old rigs?

whats wrong with a single pivot? id trade a "sinister linkage" for a good single pivot any day.
and a good single pivot bike design doesnt necessarily warrant a floating brake either

I pushed a cheeta :D ,Super 8 and TMX at platty so I know what single pivots are capable of. That floating brake can bail you out in certain situations. Single pivots get a better boost off of certain types of takeoffs. All these new bikes are capable of doing anything with the right rider pushing it.
