- 06 Wolf Ridge with 140mm Revelation fork…
used an 05 rock springs with a totem without dying in the alps a couple of weeks ago. great for downhill though somewhat sluggish uphill…
i was also a bit worried, but the way i see is that downhill frames even not many years ago didn't have gussets or huge headtubes/welds, and people survived. I'm not kyle strait so I doubt if the stress is anywhere near the (almost certainly overbuilt) spec of the frame.
Cynic-al also quoted something from MBA in another thread which reckoned that fork length wasn't really the issue, just whether you start hucking like crazy because of your new fork.Posted 8 years agoneilnevillMember
Marzocchi AM SLs on a errrrr….06 Attack trail with no problems. It climbs fine at 120 to 130, goes down rather well at 150. I prefer not to use the last 10 though.
The frame is plenty strong enough with the guessets, although if it were to crack I'd strip the frame before marching in the the shop for my warranty replacement.Posted 8 years agoneilnevillMember
the 05 head tube guesset is ever so slightly different shape and the head and seat tube angles are also a teeny weeny bit different on the 06 I believe, think the swing arm got tweaked with more 'dent's' for lateral stiffness too, no big changes though.
You must be tall…they are big frames and that must be 19"….and your using the bottle cage 😉
The frames are strong enough to take some big stuff but I did eventually manage to pop the air can on the shock….too many 8 foot drops I think. I stuck with an air shock though. TFT advise me that the older (pre RP3 etc) air cans were a teeny bit stronger…..although that's what mine was.
Oh BTW mangatank, I don't run the Alpine link (looks like snaps doesn't either) I reckon the extra inch on the fork has similar affects on the angles to using an alpine link, but obviously the BB is higher.Posted 8 years ago
