I want to stick some wider bars and a 2X10 drivetrain with Blackspire Stinger or similair on it when funds allow.

I also need to get some dual plys and a 200mm rotor on the front for the Alps. :D

Both of your bikes are quite nice, but you really make me laugh with the 2 different pictures one "playtime" the other lah blah. Just seatpost height was changed hehe.

Anyways, that should do you well on the downhills compared to your carrera!

Glad it made someone laugh then :D

It feels so much better on the DH track and also, faster on pretty smooth XC descents because of the geometry. Love it, it's the sort of bike that you can ride anything on. :)

Glad to hear, I had been eyeing up a spicy frame that was locally for sale here, but at 600 euros for a used on I just wasn't ready to drop the cash yet. Then I stumbled across my new Cotic frame, and it was a done deal.

yup, 2011. I can't properly slam the post, it won't go any further. I could cut the post but when I have it at XC height it wouldn't be long enough as it's currently at the minimum insertion mark.

When I get a dropper it'll solve the problem. I can get a 420mm Reverb, drop it 5 inches on the spot for steep, techy bits and then when I'm at the DH track I can drop it like that and then also undo the clamp and drop it further. I want one so bad! :(

New SKF Low Friction seals going in this week and I'll also do a lower leg service and replace the Float fluid in the air spring. The forks should hopefully lose that little bit of stiction they ahve at the moment. The fact that I'm so light can't make it any better.

honestly wouldn't bother if the bike's so new, the forks probably still haven't broken in and unless its done by a fox dealer or service centre anything more than a dust seal re-oil will void the warranty, if i were you, i'd wait til they need a full service in 9-12 months time and just ride it til then, waste of money imo, no matter what the benefits are, only reason I'm considering it is because the forks are in need of a service, as they are nearly a year old and well over due a service

30 hour service interval and I've already reached it for the lower legs and the Float fluid in the air spring! I'm sticking to it too! I've seen that many fox forks with worn stanchions... and they're not cheap to repair either.

You go ahead and leave your forks but I'm fairly confident with forks and I like having my kit working perfectly. It's not like it costs that mcuh either, some seals and some suspension fluid...

No, 30 hours until you need to replace the oil in the lower legs and the float fluid in the air spring. That's what it says on their webby for my forks.

kashima stanchions FTW ;) honestly though, unless you leave you lowers covered in mud and grit for months and months on end, i wouldn't worry about it, yes it says 30 hours in the service manual, but that's a guide line at best, ive seen my fair share of buggered fox stanchions and they're all atleast one and a half to two years old and have never had any servicing what so ever, the air spring has nothing to do with stanchion wear, thats purely down to the seals and dust wipers, whip them up, re-oil the foam rings with some float fuild, give the seals a damn good clean and they'll work like box new for another coupla months at the very least, service every year to replace the seals and other bits and bobs that mojo do (i wouldnt recommend tf tuned, bad experiences from numerous folks i know)

just my 2p of course, its your bike!!

edit: are your forks FIT damper or the old open bath?

thought something about the whole 30 hour seemed abit odd, 100 hours sounds more likely, even if it is fox :lol: i know for a fact they suggest cleaning and greasing the foam rings every 15/30 hours dependent on what fork it is
