Ican P9 build
« on: September 02, 2017, 01:37:13 PM »
Ok, so I thought I would start a new thread for the ICAN P9. I am building it up with Fusion Sweep roughcut, RS super deluxe, hope hubs, brakes, stem, 820mm RF carbon bar. Using ICAN 40mm rims and maxxis 2.8 tyre combo.
Still waiting for the shock.

Here is a picture of how it currently stands.

Need to wait for the shock first for an accurate measurement...but it's low!! Around 325-330mm!!

alright.  Thats what I figured.  My P8 ended up at 324 with my plus tires aired up to about 25 psi.  Its worth it though once you learn to time your pedal strokes all over again.  The bike is a ripper through the corners.

I have  2.8's mounted on 40mm rims... Looking forward to getting it finished. What did your p8 come in at weightwise?

Give me a little bit here and I'll get a weight on the bike.  I have not officially weighed it to be honest.

Awesome! I'm trying to decide on which full suspension frame to build, but I'm thinking this is the one.
What's the travel on the fork?

160mm fork travel....150mm rear.... Looks like it means business for sure....chainstays are very long though, but should be mega stable....hope I can wrestle it through the tight trails here in Czech.

Cheers

We have some VERY tight and twisty uphill single track here in Iowa and after a few rides on the P8 I have zero issue getting it through the turns.  I dont think you will have any issue!

I have ordered some 165mm cranks so I don't need to worry about running a decent amount of sag. Really looking forward to getting the shock and finishing the build!!

The 210x55 shock that this calls for is delayed for another 50days!! So for the meantime I have found a 210x60....Have check the frame for clearance and all should be well....means for now I'll have 163mm out back!

should fit just fine!  I know the P8 had plenty of room for a 200x57 when it calls for a 200x51.  So I would assume you would be fine with that shock!  I would run it all the time.

With the 60mm stroke it'll give me 163mm rear wheel travel. The cross brace contacts the seat tube at around 64/65mm stroke with an eye to eye of 210mm.... I'm also considering on finding a coil shock for it as well....but that can wait for now.... :-).... Shock arrives tomorrow.... :-)
