Hi, I've been searching high and low and can't find a spec for seat post diameter nor BB spindle width anywhere. Does anyone happen to know?

Thanks!

165mm is the way to go!

Since I'm 6'4" I tend to lean towards 170 for DH. Otherwise I feel like a circus side show freak...Or like the monkey on the little mini bike. ;-)

Any particular brand/model?

Thanks!

I run 170's on my Sunday - but I have to watch out for the occasional pedal comming in contact with rocks..but it's not that bad.

Try running your question over at the DH freeride forum. You should get more play over there. :cool:
Thanks for the tip on posting. However, I'm more interested in what cranks work best with the sunday, i.e. clearance, and what not. This was a real problem on my M3, I'm hoping the Sunday will be more flexable!

aaaaack, please don't use the term "flexable" when describing bikes!! :p

any of the current DH cranks that fit an 83mm shell fit the Sunday. the RF Diablous are relatively indestructible, saints are almost as strong and lighter and the holzfellers have a slick new interface allowing you to swap bb sizes if you ever need to. haven't had time on the FSA mega-exo gravity's (yet), but the ISIS version was tough and relatively light.

Thanks for the info! Do you know which model Saint crank to look for for use on the Sunday?

Thanks!

single-ring, if you go for the 3 ring and grind down the granny you might get spacing issues... (whistling innocently)

just go for the one with an 83mm bb shell, and stay with 165mm length unless you don't like your pedals very much. :D

Do they come in different spindle sizes too?

Thanks a bunch for the tips!

You want the FC-M805-1 model.
I can find the M805-1 but not the "FC" M805-1.
From what I can see the model I found is for 150mm rear hub and 83mm BB - which should work!?!

Thanks!

FC is just Shimano's designation for a crankset.
Looks like it should work, and I think it comes as a complete set. No having
to buy a BB!

Thanks for the help!
