Ahhh...1 size too small. I'm keeping my eyes open for a 16.5 to FRHT...ride report on that fork?

Zephyr11 09-10-09 07:32 PM

Just got the bike today, so I haven't had much of a chance to play with it. It's been down a couple of sets of stairs (riding down them, not jumping), and a couple short (<1 foot) urban drops, but not enough to give a real ride report yet. Coil's way too heavy for me, that's about all I've figured out so far. Komodo II comes with a DJ1, but also with a decent price jump.

Talking to the guy at the store, I got the impression that the New Jersey Jamis still has some '09's still in stock, and a couple leftover '08's (at least in 14", though I'd think 16.5" is probably a more common size to sell out).

I'm hoping one day to follow 66's lead and find an affordable ride with a crap fork and throw a Domain or Argyle on there and hope the rest of the bike holds up. (though I have a theory that the Launch ...though not a stellar performer...will take some repeated abuse)

Once i get my bashguard on, I will post my updated bike. Speaking about bashguard, do i really need to use a torque wrench to get it right?

ed 09-16-09 09:26 PM

Depends on the bash...if it's a Lexan e.13 supercharger...then dang straight I'd do it.

lanfarm 09-17-09 08:12 PM

Darn it :P

Think the bike shop would do it for free? I definitely don't have 100+ dollars for 1 tool...

ed 09-17-09 09:12 PM

Harbor Freight...$20'ish. Make sure to get the "inch pounds" version.

If not, just be careful.

lanfarm 09-18-09 04:36 PM

Just be careful?? As in use hex keys and not make it too tight or too loose? I still dont want to purchase one because:
1.Canadian currency conversion
2. Ill probably only need it this one time.
3. Shipping

I will find a way!

dminor 09-18-09 05:21 PM

There is one "economy" (there, I said it without saying 'ghetto' - - hah!) way to do this:

Know how long your allen wrench is. Like if you have a long-handle set with the ball-end on the long end.

Attach a fisherman's scale ($4 from a sporting goods store) to the end of you allen wrench and pull to the correct poundage.

http://media.mydoitbest.com/imagereq...=C&newsize=200

So if the torque spec for your supercharger is 4.8 nm (if it's something else, there's a nm to inch-pound converter here), that's about 43 inch-pounds. If the 'pull spot' on your allen wrench is 5" from the bolt center, you'll need to exert 43 5 = 8 - 9 lb.s pull on the end of your wrench. Easy.

Wow Doug...you're a really fart smeller.

Augustin01, that 8" rear rotor looks hugely out of place for some reason.. :lol:

Nice bike though.

Here's my new Marin Alpine Trail 29er:

I got it for $340. I had been wanting to try a 29er, but without spending much $$$, so I figured this was the way to do it.

How did you get that for $340?? That's a $800 bike! Kudos for a good deal.

I bought it here and used a 25% coupon I was given:

Only the 17 inch is available now, though.

Giant ATX 860. Freshly cleaned and out of storage ready for a romp tomorrow :)

Can't wait.
