Submitted by jace mace a Downhiller from the shore

Date Reviewed: September 2, 2006

Strengths:    Lots of material (overbuilt for some...weighs in at 515gm according to a google search.)
You're way behind the axle...good for top-heavy (body-builders...like me, and others with large/heavy pecs and shoulders) people who like to do steep rock faces etc.

Doesn't flex at all (I do use a moto-cross protaper bar) even though it's a top faceplate clamp whick puts pressure on the bolts and is a farley narrow clamping surface compared to direct moto style mount, which are typically farther apart.

Weaknesses:    Clamp down threads are the rotor sized bolt width (not sure of tech. desription right now) and not brake bolt and/ or typical stem bolt width (such as this stem)...therefore they easily strip.
Knees can hit the bar.
28.6 diameter and not the typical os 31.4
Not quick to re-allign after they are off-center...i.e there are many bolt to tighten and lossen...which can slow down your anxious trail buddies.

Bottom Line:   
nice and stiff, be carefull of how much you tighten the long compresion bolts.
Keeps you way back for steeps. knees can hit the bar.
have to use a 28.6 bar (moto, chubby by azonic.)

Uno Momento-ground zero

Per Timberr's suggestion, here is a pic of my new Moment frame. I am stoked to build but this is my first "frame only" purchase and don't even know where to start. A little overwhelming. So far, here is what I have in mind for the main stuff: [B]Headset[/B]--CK [B]Fork[/B]--Fox Talas 36 R or 36 ... Read More »

International Freedom Center at Ground Zero?

Tomorrow is the "take back the memorial rally" at the world trade center plaza in NYC. This rally is an effort by many 9/11 family members who feel the proposed "international freedom center" doesn't represent what "ground zero" is all about. I think we should support this effort. The proposed In ... Read More »

"Nine Innings from Ground Zero"

I watched most of "Nine Innings From Ground Zero" on HBO last night. What a great show. Great footage of Bush as a human being and leader too. Bush took advantage of his support post 9/11 to implement a grim agenda. Reason alone to boot the SOB. We've been had by suits with a selfish agenda for ... Read More »
