Suspension JONG here,
wouldn't a SP hold more to the KISS principal than ICT?
Just curious as I'm looking into full squish bikes but have been riding this
everywhere for the past couple of years. ooooh the mad trackstand steaze.
Oh and the bike is nice looking, makes me want to hurt myself in that good kind of way.

They made some good changes.STRAVA: Enabling dorks everywhere to get trails shut down........ all for the sake of a race on the internet.

Ive always been a big fan of them, but having said that, my ICT linkage bike (ellsworth moment) rides like a freaking dream. Id really think it would be hard to find a significantly better riding all mountain 6" bike out there. Its rear end is incredibly stiff and tracks great too.

Glad they didn't go too nutty with the hydroformed tubing. They pretty much hit everything I was hoping for. Only one shock position, though?Montani Semper Liberi

You know Matt (OGripper)? Two of his buddies work for SC and that was one of the toys they had.STRAVA: Enabling dorks everywhere to get trails shut down........ all for the sake of a race on the internet.

I can't wait for all the "What kind of fork on my Bullit" posts to appear across the interweb again.
Pretty much looks like a kickass slopestyle/park bike.
Me likey single pivots."It's too bad that a lot of people have never experienced the feeling of rollerblading in the cool air of a summer evening"

Oh my. I like. Kinda surprised they haven't hopped on the swing-link bandwagon though.
12-20-2006, 11:39 PM #15
I'd buy that bike.
Only, those hoops scare me immensly.
I have seen DT DH rims fold during a 5 mph crash into a SMALL sapling...closest thing I have ever seen to "I was just riding along when....."

i was under the impression that the 6.1 DH rims sucked balls, but the 5.1's were actually decent

woo - are you on 729's on your DH bike, or do you roll deemax on it?
12-21-2006, 05:53 PM #20
DH (turner dhr): mavic 729s with straight gauge 2.0 spokes
Freeride(intense uzzi): deemax
XC(intense 6.6): crossmax XL
DJ(evil DOC): 36h 721s with straight gauge 2.0
12-21-2006, 06:07 PM #21
nice. super stoked on my new 729's. they really feel just as strong as the doublewide wheelset, but 2/3lb lighter for the wheelset.
12-21-2006, 06:51 PM #22
They're stronger than double wides if you build them right.
I mentioned the straight gauge spokes for a reason. I know the theory behind butted spokes, but for dh wheels, it doesn't work. A rock hard wheel with no flex either fails catastrophically or doesn't move for years. In 6 years of riding 721s and 729s (older names obviously), I've broken 2 wheels wheels built from those rims. I'm definitely a brand whore in that respect but it's because everything else I've used gets destroyed too fast.

yup. dbl butting is for leg shavers

Sorry we are going OT but another vote for 721's. Got them this summer on kid's and other's recommendation and they are bomber. No complaints at all. I usually have a few flat spots after riding for a few months, but the 721s are still true and happy. Stokered.
Bullit is nice. On a related topic, I wonder what '08 will have in store for the trusty AS-X...
