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?

Darn it

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

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

If not, just be careful.

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!

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.



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.

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

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:

https://shop.ingdirect.com/Product_D...84E237A748F739

Only the 17 inch is available now, though.
