On most euro BB, the spindle is part of the BB, but it depends upon the crankset/BB Some have the spindle connected to one of the crankarms, some are part of the BB, and some are completely separate pieces

What else did you have in mind?

I am pretty much all set unless you have a 36 float

I will second the Transition Double. I have been on one for the last two years. It has worked really well at all of the courses I have ridden it on. I would say, short travel is the ticket for most of the tracks you will likely be riding (the ranch, ... more »

Would you sell the fork separately?

What is your basis for recommending the list of bikes above? Most are sold as frames only with no inexpensive build kit available through the manufacturer. All of them have widely different suspension designs as well. The Banshee and SX are fully capable ... more »

I love my Transition Double, great bike, strong build, and ready for all the courses on the slopestyle scene Short travel is the way to go by far Do you have a specific budget in mind? Are you looking for a complete or a frame? I have a Transition hardtail ... more »

Are we still talking about suspension?

Reply to You can never have enough shims 11/23/2009 2:22 PM

Its not about more shims, its about the girth of your shim and the motion in the oil

I think the step up Cob posted is probably one of the best out there. It definitely is one that has seen the most use, progression, and exposure. If you can build one similar to that, you would be able to learn a lot. It doesnt hurt that the guys who ... more »

Thats a good point Also check out the step up trick jumps in the movies, the one in Aptos is built into a hill and has a super sandy landing. A lot of trick jumps I have gotten to ride tend to have flatter landings so you dont run the risk of looping ... more »

Reply to 2010 Boxxer World Cup vs. Team 11/17/2009 8:37 PM

There are quite a few racers that run the Team without a problem. I have an 08 World Cup like yours and really dig it, but if I were to buy a new one I would probably just go for the new Team.

Hmmm, I guess I should give it a try and see what you mean. Ive always had a respect for those guys who shred brakeless, never understood why they do it, makes sense though, thanks Dtron

Reply to lowering a 2010 boxxer team, can it be done? 11/17/2009 3:47 PM

Keep in mind how simply you can reduce the travel in a Fox 40 as well with those black spacers that come in the top of every 40. And yes, shimming air is generally pretty easy, I love my 36 Float on my DJ bike, super easy to shim. Take Joss's advice, ... more »

Wouldn't those same riders shred just the same with a brake? Just playing devil's advocate

Haha! Wow and Haha are all that needs to be said in regards to that

Reply to brakeless for park and street 11/16/2009 7:26 PM

Sorry I didnt read that this was regarding park and street, which is basically the only place I could think brakeless would make sense

Reply to brakeless for park and street 11/16/2009 3:49 PM

I sold my BMX cause I couldnt put a disc brake on it.... I understand the idea behind it. For someone like your self who is more into the big mountain stuff, it doesnt make much sense. Like spomer said, it helps with commitment at places you feel comfortable ... more »

I think this is the first logical argument against them I have seen yet. Well said. Im glad you didnt say, it looks weird, the bike doesnt have enough travel or it has wonky geometry as the basis for your argument. Getting a legit tire was a big step, ... more »
