I've got a set of Deity Vendetta cranks with a ti spindle that are actually pretty light all things considered. I just don't have a good bike to use them on.

In bike park mode here. 33lb 5oz, cushcore rear wheel, xl frame, heavy ass tires.

Sorry but I've just got to take a minute to drool over this build. 36 csu with zocchi lowers too, I'm in love! lol What made you do it? Just because it looks badass or is there a performance reason? (AXS looks immense too)

isnt the point of axs to not look immense...?

I did it because I had the other z1 fork to poach the lowers from. I got bored when I couldnt ride... Plus it looks freaking sick! Have yet to see another one like it.

The plan is to go coil on the 36 so its like a throwback kind of thing? idk yet.

I'm about to service my fox 36 grip 2 lowers and airside. Can I just use rockshox oil for that since I have a bunch of it? It seems kinda silly to buy two new oils from fox when I have the rockshox stuff. Really all the oil in the lowers does is lube the seals right?

Cheers

Not on the damper side. You should but the 5wt fox stuff for that side atleast. It's like $20?

I would guess you need fox 5wt teflon for damper 40cc and fox 20wt gold 20cc for the air side.

The oil helps on the seals but more importantly keeps the bushings from being ran dry and get all knackered.
