    Of course it is! Especially when we we talking about the mater of the gods!

    I guess that’s the only downside of spring shocks. I’ve alwasy been between weights.

    SB66c with standard XT build (except I have dropped down to 1×10 with a 30t Widgit chainring), 160 34 Floats, DT Swiss Wheelset and 150mm Lev, not weighed it but guessing it comes in around 28lb.
    Struggling to get around using 1×10 having previously ‘enjoyed’ 2×10 but persevering until X01 comes out.

    Was looking at this in Leisure Lakes and it’s an absolute stunner. Unfortunately my budget doesn’t stretch that far so looking at the alloy version instead.

    Your spending too much time on here!

    Your probably right.

    Just had a quick google and apparently Specialized recommend the 550 spring for upto about 20kg over my weight but a load of yanks on mtbr say that the 600 is more realistic for my weight.

    Maybe my 600 is spot on and my damping is a bit too slow.

    My bike gets to go “home” tommorrow:

    In 160mm travel format, with DBair shocker/ RLC fork, and Super Gravity flavoured HDs it’s 28lb.

    You’d hope that’ll work quite well in the Alps ;-

    These AM bikes are NOT for riding! (They are for polishing and showing off, if you ride them, especially with that sort of ridiculous flying stunt stuff, you might scratch the perfect paint…….. 😉

    I’m resisting the urge to be pedantic…

    Mick taking aside, what does the TFT spring calculator reckon? What % sag are you running at the mo?

    Too right max…these bikes are for looking at and patting yourself on the back whilst think of the gnar lines you’ll hit on the one sunny, dry day! 😀

    A little breather after a bit of a Hike a Bike for the La Varda Trail!

    Scott Genius LT 20 Carbon, pretty much standard
    Brakes upgraded to Hope Evo Race
    Hope bashring
    Bionicon Chain Tensioner (like the old DCD)

    8 weeks and I will be there again!

    Probably weighs about 14.5Kg, not the quickest uphill, but it’s great on the downs. 180mm of travel is more than enough for me.

    I wish mine still looked like that picture i posted, nearly a seasons racing has taken its toll & it’s starting to look a bit doggy.

    3 weeks in the Alps from next weekend too, including the Mega & Mountain of Hell, it’s going to come back looking very sorry for itself 🙁

    Release the inner pedant, I thought thats why we all come on here?

    TF say around 600. I’m not 100% sure on the sag its hard to tell on a coil.

    There is also talk that a titanium spring wont fit on an Evo because the diameter is too large and rubs on the bottom of the top tube.

    Mine only looks (to my eyes) nice in my pic because that was taken the day that I finished building it up. It’s already got its first battle sat from me taking a stupidine through some rocks at too higher speed and getting bounced about and the none drive side chainstay took the imoact.

    My SX was pretty well used and had more than its fair share if bumps and scraps. I may not be the raddest rider but my bikes do get used (and crashed).

    My Heckler has just earned its stripes in Morzine/Les Gets last weekend!!

    The Marz55 160’s and offset bushings really slackened it out nicely.

    At one point on a 50k AM loop I was really wishing Mindmap3 hadn’t talked me into a single ring on the front!!!!

    That looks great, whats the build on it to get it that light?

    Have you looked into getting a Ti spring at all?

    The result of two years tinkering with different spec options and it currently comes in at 32.4 lb.
    Find the 1 x 10 OK round the Surrey hills but will be going 2 x 10 again for Trans Savoie 🙂

    What spring is that? I read on MTBR that Ti springs are bigger so rub on the top tube under compression. How have you found it compared to a steel spring on there?

    mindmap is slowly aggressively talking me round to putting a Ti on mine.

    3rd page and no Fives yet? What’s going on STW?

    Nothing too exciting; 1×10, wide bars, short stem, 150mm forks.

    Rad as you like.

    Don’t know the make of the spring, but it’s the same kind of size as most other springs I have come across. The standard Evo kit comes with a shorter spring to avoid any chance of rubbing, like the one on Dango’s, but I have done a few rides now and checked the frame by removing the shock & nothings rubbing. I have got a couple of extra turns of pre-load than I would normally run though, otherwise the spring collar would fould the frame. I have never been able to tell the difference performance wise between Ti & Steel springs, I have used it just for the weight difference.

    I will acknowledge that the mudguards look shit.

    Thanks twelveski, I guess as mine is a large it has even less chance of rubbing than yours.

    What length is it 2.5? Did you go for a lighter spring to account for the extra preload? I guess you can put a couple more turns of preload on as the spring has more free length.

    I’ll be buying a ti spring shortly, the forks are 55rc3evo ti’s, the rest is all fairly middle of the road kit

    I really couldn’t tell you, it was a package bike which was about £4k I think, then I juiced it up a bit but I only pay trade so have no idea. It is very nice though.
