Anyone would know the bearing specs for taniwha ? I am thinking of replacing mine but shipping costs form Zerode is doubling the price... There are plenty of specialised bearing shops and Im thinking they might just be as good; just need to know the specs.

Tried asking Rob directly? I mean, it's the biking equivalent of showrooming, but I don't think he'll care tbh.

Running a Taniwha or Katipo? Don’t like having two girders connecting your pedals to your gearbox, and want to save some weight?

Here we go...

Carbon cranks for pinion

They look great, and would be a nice upgrade however they are pretty hard to justify at that price. Hopefully he can work on the price and I'd be interested.

They aren't cheap but they're comparable, even slightly cheaper, to similarly light carbon options from RF and SRAM which, considering these are hand made to order, is pretty impressive. Be interested to know at what price would you be interested?

I made a snap decision over the weekend and picked up a cheap second hand 200mm coil boxxer fork with the idea of experimenting with my taniwha in "full DH mode".

I'm now wondering how dumb that was...before you tell me, consider that I'm currently running a 170mm fork with a 0.5 degree offset bearing without any issue.

So...is this a completely ridiculous thing to do? Please share.

Hell no!

If you don’t mind giving up your turn radius and carrying a bit of extra weight, no reason not to.

nice - yeah I'm thinking about park laps on high speed motorway type tracks.

hoping that head tube is up to the abuse...*crosses fingers+toes+arms+legs*

Ha!

My concern wouldn't be the head tube, it would be about the front end diving on you, tbh.

I wish they would come out with an affordable DH bike with a trigger shifter for the pinion!

lol yeah it might turn out that way...fun to experiment with but yeah, won't be rushing into full on riding. maybe a new spring needed...we'll see

would be sick eh!?!? wonder how much weight they could cut out without requiring the massive 600% range...

trigger shifter I'm OK without. I run the rippergripper kinda sloppy with a bit of play so it's harder to knock through one on impacts...thanks to an average tune job that turned out to be kinda good Big Grin
