  • in reply to: Industrial Nine DH150 Hubs…… #105652

    The I9 hub is very nice, not only aesthetically but performance wise too. I rode a set of I9 hubs with their straight pull spokes laced to 823s for two seasons on my V-10. The engagement is unreal, and while others complain about excessive drag, I found that after a short break in period they roll just as good if not better than other high end hubs. Maintaining them is relatively easy and was done twice a season which took no longer than 20 minutes. At the end of the two seasons they only suffered from one broken pawl, a few nicks out of a few spokes, and some bearing play (bearing adjuster was maxed out).

    Thanks for the reply. I was concerned about the gps using data. I’ll have to look into the app and see how it goes. The signal up on the mountain where I trail ride is hit or miss.

    Schwim – does that app eat up your data or is it cellular? Just got an iPhone myself a month or so ago.

    As for the Singletracks app, I would use it if I had the choice of using the full site with it.

    [quote="comacruz":28504qu7]Keep in mind that reducing the travel will also change the geometry of your bike.

    Changing the geometry is in fact the goal here. 😃[/quote:28504qu7]

    Sounded like he just wanted his bar at a lower height and didn’t want to change the HA, BB height, etc…

    OP – hope it all works out for you.

    in reply to: Reduce Fork Travel #103612

    Yes, your a2c will change by whatever you reduce the travel by. The spring rate will also be affected so you will have to add a few more psi to achieve the correct sag (according to the Fox link below). Keep in mind that reducing the travel will also change the geometry of your bike.

    Take a look at the link below. Go to Forks, 32mm, 32 Float 29, and take a peek at the suggested air spring settings for the various travel heights.

    Well the V-10 hasn’t changed since posted above but the Nomad went through a few changes.

    I was hoping to see more pics of others DH rigs when I opened this sticky. Here’s my V-10.

    in reply to: DH glove #101212

    Dakine has reworked their Ventilator glove for 2012 and added 3mm thick palm padding. These might be what you’re looking for. When my wife started riding DH she was worried about the lack of padding in her gloves as well and settled on a well fitted pair of women’s Fox Dirtpaw gloves. They have served her well for the past few seasons. For myself, I’ve enjoyed Fox’s 360 Vortex and Troy Lee’s GP glove this season.

    How do you like the Crankbrothers wheels? Doing a build of my own.

    They have been on my Nomad for 2.5 seasons now. They are a stiff wheel with very decent engagement and hold their trueness very well. No problems with the bearings or rear hub (as others have had in the past with their Cobalt model). Only damage so far are 2 smallish dents in the rear rim (even with the dents I’m still having no problem running tubeless) and one broken spoke after my hanger broken and my mech went into the spokes.

    Here are my two rigs as they stand now.
