Question for Crankarm

Here is a photo of the DUC's I am currently bashing around on
While not Maverick Frames I thought this might be OK for this thread


Just wondered how you find the Intense compared with the RIP? I have had a 5.5 set up with DUC's and was thinking about the RIP so all comments will be of great interest!

Axolotl

Got a pic of the latest version of my ML7, as you can see from my saddle I've got the new monolink/shock. Kind of miss my old set-up (extra heavy spring w/air assist) running 15-20 psi.

Donkey - ML7/5 from May '06

Photos are from Porcupine Rim in Moab, 3 weeks ago. Setup for that type of ride...big tires, Mallet pedals. Otherwise I run Candy's and 2.1 Specialized tires and it is a couple pounds lighter...just over 25#s.

Interesting setup for your Polar sensor. Is that mounted on the bash guard? I have mine mounted on the lower part of the right leg, under the bash guard. I mounted it with zip ties like normal, then screwed the bash guard screws over it and it works just fine. However the big issues is the wireless is not strong enough for the watch to read from the bars... so I have it mounted on the lower fork crown. It seemed wierd at first, but it is nice since I don't always look at it (in the shape I'm in, I don't always want to see my HR!)

I had the same problem on my Cannondale with the lefty fork. If mounted all the way at the bottom of the fork the signal isn't strong enough to reach the watch mounted on the bar. On the Lefty I had to make a special mount (see http://home.comcast.net/~ledrocnoc/MountainBike/2004Jekyll_05.jpg - here for the bike http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/bik/242752061.html)

When I looked at the DUC32 fork, I assumed I was going to have the same problem, so I just hanged the sensor on the fork guard. I used a hot wire to poke hole through the plastic, used industrial double sided tape and stainless wire to hold the sensor. I recessed the wire inside the guard so that it would not rub against the fork seal. Worked for the 2 rides I did so far.

Polar fork mount "switch"

Someone told me that the fork mount piece has a "switch" inside it which can be set for a stronger signal. I'm bleeding my disc brakes today, so while I have the bike on the stand I'll take a look and report back.

Polar sensor range adjustment

This is off topic for this thread, but I had mentioned above that I'd reply back...I just heard back from Polar about the speed sensor range adjustment. They sent a document back that says there are 3 settings...however adjusting to the longer ranges could cause interference when riding close to others. Just email their customer service for it... or PM me. My issue is that the signal did not reach the watch unit on the my handlebar with the DUC32 fork....so I have to put the watch on the lower fork crown.

please send me the infos about the different settings because I have the same problem.
On my ML8 I use a special sensor holder from cannondale for the lefty. It works fine, but is very complicate to install because there is not much space at the DUC to fix it.. I try to give a photo from this solution.
