    I think your getting the bb sizes mixed up. I'm trying to fit my 68 into a 73 wouldn't that mean I'd have to make it bigger using spacers, or am I just crazy?

    Uggg. If your current BB on your hardrock is in fact a 68/73mm then it will fit. A 68/73 BB is essentially a 73mm BB that is compatible with a 5mm spacer.

    If you want to make sure you have a 68/73 BB currently... look at the right side of the BB, there should be a little spacer.

    my new rigid bike, with just the parts swapped from my old Ibis.



    S-Works carbon HT
    King hubs, mavic 517/519
    Avid brakes
    Cook bros. cranks
    X-9 shifters/RD,
    LX FD
    Easton carbon monkey lite bars
    Redline cro-mo fork.

    my plan is to put a SID on if i want suspension, and get either the bontrager rigid carbon fork, or a pace carbon fork. and ultimately run hope mono minis with either DT wheels, or kings on DT XD4.1, and either an XT crank, or some carbony XC crank. the bike comes in at a shade under 23lbs as is. the carbon fork will be the first addition, probably within the next couple weeks and should take about a half pound off the bike. taking it out for it's first real dirt ride tomorrow. i've taken it on some fireroads and so far it has just blown my mind. might even make a racer out of me.

    and the other bike: cannondale prophet 1000.



    avid juicy 7s, X-9 RD with X-7 shifters, mavic crossland wheels. the bike is pretty much stock, except for the pedals and the bashguard, nothing really stands out about it. gotta warranty the rear juicy as fluid leaked out of the resivoir cap and bleed screw, and possibly get a new SPV cartridge for the lefty. the bike has been kickass so far. super responsive, flies down hills and handles jumps pretty well.

    Ya sure, nothing besides protect your stanchions form being gouged. I would keep them on, they do no harm on. I know before NorthStar at Tahoe opens this summer, I'll pick up some Lizardsking fork proctectors, last thing I want it a rock to gouge my $1000 fork.

    Keep em on.

    I'll be keeping them on, partly because that's the way they came, and because the seals last a bit longer in the New England mud. I know the new forks don't have the boots, but that fork is a '99 model.

    The MTB is sitting in the corner under a heap of junk, it hasn't moved in a while. I just don't use it very much anymore.

    Ellsworth Dares are one of my dream bikes, nice build. Why the 24" in the front?

    ^ The Risse fork is too massive for anything taller than 24". Check out the front ride height with my fork and 3" tires. Plus my wheels have never, ever needed a true due the spoke length.

    Danka. I think Ellsworth went wayside when people figured out that it's all about VPP design or a lightweight single pivot rear suspension systems. True -the Dare has brake jack under severe braking, true - the suspension is prone to bob (without tons of rebound compression dialed), but the linear plushness of the 8" travel can't be beat. Meh, it suits my needs (jumping off of really big stuff.)

    07 Transition Covert frame, size small. RS Lyrik coil. Race Face/SRAM/Shimano/Suntour mishmash drivetrain. Avid Juicy-5 brakes 203mm/185mm front/rear. Thomson 50mm X-4 stem/Answer Protaper bar/Gravity Dropper Descender post/WTB something or other seat. Hadley 10mm bolt trhough rear hub/DT 5.1 rim/15ga spokes/gold alloy nips. Hope Bulb 20mm front hub/Syncros DP-25 rim/15-15db spokes, gold alloy nips. Lock on grips, Hope seat collar, Swinger 4-Way Air rear shock, Dangerboy levers & bar end slugs, Goldtooth Industries bashring, Panaracer Fire Fr 2.4" front, Tioga Team DH 2.3" rear. Interloc Racing Design headset. 34# as shown in the pics.

    Got a RS Pearl MC 3.1 rear shock on it now, to see how it compares to the Swinger; haven't had a chance to ride it with that yet though.

    But it climbs like a much lighter bike, it doesn't come in rootbeer, and no it doesn't look flexy.

    wethepeople - your bike is sick. I like how it's on a freezer.

    scublover - how much does your bike weigh. That looks so sexay.
