Yeah it's new, about 2 weeks. It's a Medium Satin black and weighs a tad over 32lbs. I've only had a few "real" rides on it untill the weather turned ugly Up front I have the AM1 and Cane creek short and it feels pretty good, not too tall. The head angle is fine, gone is that twichy feeling my 5.5 had at speed.aappling72 said:Hey man, I always like black. Is it new? What fork is that, the AM1? How does the head angle feel to you with it? I have the E13 reducer cups with a 06 Z1 Light. So I will lose a little height. I am debating whether to go with a 66SL to get a little slacker head angle.

Thanks! No problems with the knobs hitting the down tube. I have alot of room to spare. Even with the Cane creek flush the knobs clear.Hanzo90802 said:Looks sweet!
Any problems with the top of the fork knobs hitting the bottom of the down tube like the 5.5?
Hey RonRonnie said:Jeff,
I was just curious. How much was your 5point5 weighing with the same build? I'd like a comparison.
Drumstixdrumstix said:We just weighed a med 6.6 with a DHX Air shock on my digi fish scale, 7.13 pounds so roughly about 7 3/4's of a pound. If the frame had a RP3 it probably would way under 7 1/2.
Can you measure the HD tube angle at all? Im debating what headset to go with, flush reducer cups and IS headset bearings or a headset like yours.
How do I measure my head tube angle? I'd like to know what the angle is too. Can you give me some easy instructions to follow and do I need any special tools?
I use a protractor made by General tools, here is the picture:Cowboy-jeff said:Well I searched and searched but I couldn't find a tool to measure the HA of my 6.6. So with the help of my wife I measured it. The technique I used is a bit primitive but seems to be pretty accurate. My wife held a bubble level across the fork and I placed on top of it a triangle that measures angles. The angle came to 68°. Probably not exactly 68° but it's in the ballpark. So there you go.
If anyones knows a better (easy) method to measure the HA, please let me know.
