Very cool - do you have any install tips ? I'm going to have breakfast, install it and then go give it a test ride...francois said:Nice. Little man rode with me and the speedball today. I don't have a front shifter so my remote is in the ideal spot.

The black little housing goes on the post as pictured.
Cut the cable and housing to the desired length. Most obvious way to secure the cable to the frame is with the front der cable.
Take out the cable slack with the barrel adjuster.
Rock and roll at Downieville like Ariel. Don't brake .
BUT - not this time ! I branched out and went to Annadel.....baycat said:Nice toy John!
Taking it out for a loop at Tamarancho?
Were you out there today? We just did 20 out there this morning:jhruth said:BUT - not this time ! I branched out and went to Annadel.....
My friend Amy who lives up there gave me a route to take that she said was about 20 miles but it turned out to be only TEN !! Ohh well - still a fun ride...
From the Horse Trailer parking lot
- South Burma
- Spring Creek
So the SpeedBall R works GREAT - VERY Smooth and easy to operate. Francois - Thanks for the tips !
Annadel doesn't have too many opportunities to try it out but I did anyway and it was fun. The drop on this one is 3" and that's just about perfect. While riding it drops instantly and pops back up pretty quick as well. I think it will make a difference at DOWNEIVILLE and maybe some small steep sections on the back side of China Camp.
I give it 3 thumbs up :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The descents on Lawndale, South Burma, and North Burma are some of the best I've done around here!
That's an old photo. I have a granny ring now and I use it lots.grrrah said:what happened to the wicked shifter? wanna sell it? trade for some 26" rubber?
Hey FC, I had some similar problems with my Speedball remote, and I had to adjust the little set-screw that the cable-operated lever at the top of the post pushes, which unlocks the "shock" in the post. Try fiddling with that set-screw, if you haven't already?francois said:That's an old photo. I have a granny ring now and I use it lots.
The Speedball post is not locked when in the down position and it's been bothering me. It kind of floats up a little or gets pulled up by my behind. I think they're fixing that. Most important, Crank bros should make this in white.
Ahh, different problem. But I did get what you're talking about today. I'll check it out.morganfletcher said:Hey FC, I had some similar problems with my Speedball remote, and I had to adjust the little set-screw that the cable-operated lever at the top of the post pushes, which unlocks the "shock" in the post.

My symptom was a post that seemed "locked" in the highest or lowest position - I couldn't get it to release so it could go up or down. Adjusted it out so the lever's travel at the top of the post fully engaged the release.
hmm.. sounds like its best to wait a couple more months for some more kinks to be worked out. besides, Crank Bros, should be adding some colors soon. Need it in Atomic Bloo!francois said:Maverick said they need to add a separate air chamber to lock it down.
