The frame has been ordered! Melody told me about 20 days until shipping. In the mean time i am getting a list together of parts i need. I'm going to be using some parts off of my CS-057 hardtail so i'll be cleaning them up and getting them ready to be installed on the new bike.

Build photos and descriptions are soon to come  :)

29er / Anyone CS-887 experience? 29-er XC hardtail
« Last post by gj-070 on June 27, 2017, 03:33:06 PM »
Hello,
Since my 036 rear swing arm broke i am orientating for a hardtail build.
Topic 036: http://chinertown.com/index.php/topic,904.0.html

I was looking and found the CS-887 from Xmcarbonspeed interesting.
Searching on the web didnt give any experience hits to this CS-887, anyone here digged into this frame model?
Any frame damage experience so far known on this CS-887?
Any geometry / riding / handling experience with this frame?

I am looking for a race XC MTB, 29-er, 100mm fork, 2.1 tires, good handling in single tracks, good climbing, solid frame with no easy cracks. Probably it will be suffering on tree roots and very bumpy tracks.

A small update:
Lowered the front fork from 130 to 110mm, the minimal hight possible of this fork, fork was sold as 100mm but received it as 130mm.
Mounted a front fork remote, both very good improvements.
I really had great fun with the bike past year but ....

After about 14 months, i had an issue with the bottom bracket aluminium bushing, it came loose.
Arranged the repair at a carbon repair shop in The Netherlands myself, since that is cheaper then sending the frame to China for repair. 68 Euro.


Recently after about 18 months, my rear swing arm connection bar broke.
Currently ready to ship it again to a carbon repair shop in the Netherlands, price about 160 Euro

I can not understand the swing arm is breaking here, there must have been too much flex somehow in the vertical tubes to the rear shock, else i can not explain it.
Someone else similar experience with a breakage on this spot ?

I am thinking now to build myself also a hardtail, since 1 week no MTB due to repairs is feeling NOT good.

With platform mode, I mean the "Trail" mode of fox, the "Pedal" mode of Rockshox or "Drive" mode of DT Swiss to name a few. The drive mode of my DT Swiss X313 shock reduce bobing on my IP-036 to nearly zero.

If you mean sizing, the rear is 22.2x8, front might vary, mine was 21.5x8, but other guys reported 21.85x8. Better measure everything yourself to be sure.

Thanks, I have ordered 1 x 22.2x8 and 1 x 21.8x8, lets see if they fit once all the parts arrive. I asked today about the status on the frame and got the reply that is being produced.

I'd probably just put my existing Fox 32 100mm. That will keep the HTA at 69 degrees. I don't want it any slacker. Rear shock...not sure.
What frame did you get ?
