Ha mine are 2005 and earlier. Didn't they drop the monoque style for 06 onwards? I really wanted an 06 SX Trail.
I take it the chainstay has been impossible to replace?

Yeah, they kept a lot of the longitudinal weld seams so they still look monocoque.

Not my picture, but the right generation.

Nope. It has a front derailleur.

66.5°! How do you keep from going over the bars on shallow downslopes?

So my freewheel on my MH 525 deore freehub has finally given up the ghost. I want to get
My reign single speed for the bkke park thrashing its going to receive but I'm so out of the loop nowdays with new technology. Whats the best way to sort it these days? Would it be cheaper to get a whole new hub and freewheel or just replace the existing broken freewheel mechanism with something similar? Reign is the 6 inch one so I imagine I'd need a fair but of slaxk for chain growth under full travel?

You used to be able to get shimano freehubs as spares, don't see why that should have changed.

Get thee to the LBS.

Indeed.

And why SS? A tensioner for a 6" bike is going to be basically a derailleur anyway. May as well keep the shifter and cassette on there.
