Hi EODender !
I'm thinking about the ole suspension mod. I will be doing about 70% road 30% trail. What do you guys think is best for an 6 foot 220lb guy?
I swear, i'm not leaving you.....but she was just such a sexy bitch!
@Craig Cutright Great pics, congrats on the bike!
I tested one and must admit I really liked it. And in that color it's sexy indeed
I just love that bike!
Give us a little review when you get the chance

Ask the question to Bas from Netherlands.
I recommend the hyperpro suspension rear along with hyperpro progressive springs replacement for the fork. It's what I got and I'm pretty satifyied for dirt ( the rear improves a lot) and for the road ( the fork progressive springs improve a lot).
I've also improve my seat comfort but still do not feel at home. I wish corbin could expand his market to europe..
That was to show the Corbin seat.
Yes thanks leafman, I see that your seat has more cushion at the front. This plus a wider shape gives a more confortable seat overall. On mine, I feel like I'm still a bit sliding forward.
It's such a pain having to work on it again knowing that it has been modified two times by a well knonw saddle shop in Europe "KAHEDO".!
mm...I may have to do it myself this time. Need to figure out how to remove the staples up to the front and stuff some more foam on top of the front. Not sure if it's a good idea though.
that looks soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo comfy! I just need to wait for one of those in the flea market.
Corbin uses a relatively hard foam. When you first sit on them, they can feel hard to some people. As your body heat warms the seat, they soften up a bit. However, the firm foam is touted as the support and benefit provided by the seats.
I've had this one for several years and made several all-day trips on it. It works well for me.
Hey, Focal. Just spent a bit catching up on posts, it's been a very busy month and a half! I'm at the tail end of my suspension changes on my '09 X-Country that I've been dealing with throughout the summer, forks, shock and height changes to boot. I think I've just about got a handle on it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Question for those with an '07 X-Country with stock forks....
Could anyone tell what they measure in mm from the very bottom of the fork to the top(or bottom) of the upper triple tree??
Would be greatly appreciated!!
22.5" from top of upper triple to bottom edge of upper fork, where black fork seals start.
34.5" from top of upper triple to bottom of the fork.
Forks protrude ~1.5mm above top edge of upper triple clamp.
Used a headlamp and metric tape: 574mm to bottom edge of upper fork, 878mm to bottom of fork assembly.
Sweet! Thank you! Long story but have an '07 height shock on my '09. Just put on a set of X-challenge forks to correct the bike geometry. I measure 880mm(lowest it will go with those forks) from the top of the upper triple to the very bottom of fork. Sounds close enough to me!!
