I have yet to decide what to do with the 2.3 Butcher in the front. I hope it will eventually fit in the rear.

Joe, have you tried any new tires since the Butcher? Minions? I thrashed the Spesh tires during summer, the side knobs are done on both. The Vigilante will go to front, I am researching new options for the rear.

I haven't. Shit, I've barely ridden this summer, even less so in the past two months.

Well my Purgatory looks like a worn Hans Dampf a lot, the side knobs are undercut and would roll over in hard cornering. Perhaps it is time for Neo Moto again.

My next setup is going to be Vigilante front / Black chilli Mountain King II rear, I ordered the MKII last night.

I have a new tip for you but since you are now going to need only lightweight bald XC tires for the buffed CA trails, you will likely not be interested in this any more. ;)

Hahahaha. Not true! Cali talcum power on hard pack is technical in a very different way. I'm thinking small fat bike tires would be sweet.

Wow the Vigilante is HUGE. I only have about 1/16" of clearance under the fork brace.

Here is the only 650 I have. I finished building it about a month ago.

HALP!
So, hey everybody!
I rode my On-One 456c the other day. Everything was cool, until I noticed on the carbon downtube that I had a fairly large 'crunched-in' portion. I'm not particularly comfortable riding a cracked frame even though this is a beefy one and the trails I'm riding in socal are nearly as smooth as pavement. Also, I honestly have no idea how long I've been riding with the frame in this condition, a week, a month, 8 months.. My question is, I am curious about options for a replacement. 650 compatible, long travel (160mm) hard tail. Carbon or steel are my first choices.
Dartmoor's look great but the US site is down.
Checking out Ragley right now.
Or do I selling everything I have to fund one bike to rule them all, YT Capra..?

Hi stranger! Sorry to hear about your 456C, do you have a picture?
I seriously think you want this bike: http://www.pivotcycles.com/bike/mach-4-carbon/

But if you insist on a new aggressive HT, let me suggest this one: http://www.chromagbikes.com/frames/samurai65#Specs

Well, that's about it.

No bananas for scale, but my thumb should be a good substitute. Whatever happened was a solid impact, wish I knew what the cause was, hell, or even when it happened.
Not really sure what to do long term, thanks for the chromag suggestion.
Still missing my NE chunk. People are like :o when I do my thing on something 'tech' out here, I'm all like :roll: .
Heheheehee

No logs to hop over? :lol: I would try to find someone who repairs carbon, it looks salvageable to me. That must have been a heck of an impact though.

I'll probably do it myself after watching some videos, I wanted to change the frame color anyway. ;)

Damn sti that is nice. I too drool over the mojo every time I see them, sadly my bank account won't stretch to one any time soon.

Joe, may I ask if you clamp your frame in a bike carrier at all? That looks like a crush injury from a clamp to me. It's an unusual spot for an impact that you would not have remembered at the time.

Hey emu,
I've always ever used a fork mount or full tray. In the bike stand I always clamp the seatpost (not the dropper portion). The bike was out of my posession for some time, while my buddy had it packed up by his shop (freebie) and sent cross country via fedex. I don't explicitly remember damage on that bike upon arrival, the road bikes derailluer hanger got hosed by fedex.
I am still perplexed as to how this happened and most importantly, when. I might have been riding like this for over a year, who knows.. But I'm feeling rather confident that it is ok in the new terrain I ride in, SoCal. The most difficult techincal trail I've ridden out here is still easier than the smoothest trail back east, besides roads. Wish I was kidding.

I have a hard time believing this statement.. The "smoothest" trail on the east coast is harder than the "most difficult technical" trail here on the west coast? :laughing-rolling: Not sure where you are living and riding but a lot of the good stuff isn't always broadcasted where I'm at in OC.. Laguna for example has some stuff that I am sure would make you pucker, just not the trails that are on the map.

Net: Nothing, getting bored, excited DST to be able to get out and explore more, further away.
TM: Up in TO. Very tame stuff here. I've seen some of the trail down your way, looks good. Also looking to head up to San Lois where it seems everyone tests bikes for review.
