29er / Charles M06 XL build
« on: April 26, 2017, 09:20:11 PM »
New frame just arrived. I will post the build progress here as I go through.
So far the frame arrived and it weights 2070grams.

It will run XX1 on SID XX fork and XT brakes. I'm moving the components from my 036 cracked frame.

Cyclocross Frames, Wheels & Components / Belt Driven Carbon
« on: September 19, 2015, 11:22:28 AM »
Has anyone seem any of those ? I've gone through the dark corners of the web and could not find anyone making it.

I'm looking to build a belted cyclocross bike, most likely will use Nuvinci N360 or N380 or perhaps Alfine 8 or Alfine 11. Not sure yet, but sure I want a belt so after wet rides I can hose it off and be done with it.

29er / IP-036 Shock Tune
« on: September 05, 2015, 01:51:52 PM »
I remember some folks fiddling with the shock tune and changing to a medium or hard mode.
Does anyone remember or have posted any results ? I've been going over the threads but could not find much conclusion on this science.

I've a Monarch XX 165x38 and it's working well, however it often get close to bottom, I'm 182lbs and running about 140psi. It also gets hot while riding technical trails but I think that's normal.

If anyone can report on improvements on tuning changes, it would be much appreciated.
