    To much-spraypaint-wbo

    I like the build, good job bringing it back. Whats your sprocket tooth count on front and rear, looks like maybe a 36 on front and 16 rear, going to be very "spinny" even for a kid.

    Specialized FSR 1999, anyone own or owned one?

    Not so worried about a flip. Never had a full suspension, wanna try one out, if these ride great I may give it a shot. So can this hold its own today, still a good ride, Im not trying to compare it to whats on the market today. I trail rode on motorcycle trails on full rigids in the late...

    Specialized FSR 1999, anyone own or owned one?

    Theres a Specialized FSR for sale locally, looks like the pic appears to be 1999, blue with red decals, red manutou fork. Kinda has me intrigued. Rear shock has been changed to a strut, hopefully an upgrade. Anyone own one now or in the past, will probably take a pile of parts to get it...

    '73 Ross Apollo

    Rock Shox Quadra rebuild CHEAP - done

    Got a chance to finish this up today and ride. New PUR rod at 6 1/4 feels great. Took that inch or so of deadness out of the top of travel that rock shox get. Ill likely go 6 1/2 on mine for a little more stiffness. The bike itself is great, looks like all original parts, everything...

    Die cut machine, very cool. Ive been messing around with decals on laserjet. Theyre - OK. Diecut stencils are much nicer.

    Rock Shox Quadra rebuild CHEAP - done

    Sorry about going absent. Bought a couple trucks at an asset auction, took a while to get them picked up. Original elastomer is purple, New is yellow. New is a little larger diameter but fits in the tube and end caps fine. Seems to be the same durometer from finger nail test and finger bend...

    Good eye for parts selection, this is a great looking build. Check out these grips, all available in tan- Cult Vans, Cult Dehart, S$M Hoder. All are flangeless, Ame tri's are clasic if you want flanged grip. Skinwalls with comp 3 or snakebelly tread would look great. I cant find...

    Checkered Past aka,Tucson Rat Ruler

    Good lookin build, I like the frame not familiar with that one. The swirling chain ring keeps drawing my eye though, doesnt flow the best with the rest of the build. Whats the tooth count? I may have a spare kicking around. Most important hows it ride?

    Rock Shox Quadra rebuild CHEAP - done

    Took some digging around to find the info....and its still untested. Rock Shox was not in the new plastic development world, had to be an off the shelf item.

    Rock Shox Quadra rebuild CHEAP - done

    Gonna rebuild one of the rock shox with Shore A 60, PUR polyurethane bar in place of the elastomers. From the chart above, 70 is car tire rubber, 40 is pencil eraser. We'll see how it rides. If i dont like it I can move up or down durometer (shore A #) or cut the bar in half and go...

    Rock Shox Quadra rebuild CHEAP - done

    Found this on amazon. $11 for 48" of 3/4 diameter shipped to my door. Amazon didnt know Shore A spec on the bar. I looked up the manufacturer, small parts inc, and by checking their manufactuer number againt some Shote A data they had. The Shore A is in the manufacturer number.

    Rock Shox Quadra rebuild CHEAP - done

    After watching videos on how to rebuild rock shox, the elastomers are what goes bad, other than corrosion and grit. If youre not familiar, elastomers are 3/4" urethane bar stock. After pulling one out, Its a purple floppy solid rod 6" long. Thats for quadra rock shox, judy rock shox have...
