    Rotec RL9 rear hub

    All of the RL9s are 150mm rear spacing. Due to our intergrated rear floater that shares the same space as the hub you will require a hub that has a 150 hub shell but utllizes a 137mm axle (tube). What this means is that the disc side of the hub must be flush (ie: no extension of the axle...

    any advantages to the lawwill suspension?

    Hey all, I have to say that when I came across this thread yesterday I was pleasantly surprised! Its not often that theres so much chatter about the Lawwill design or the rotec in general. Though I am stoked, I'm always abit hesitant to discuss matters regarding our stuff as sometimes...

    Info on ROTEC RL9 (2006/7) please!

    Hey Jay, Sully here from Rotec, thanks for supporting the brand with your purchase! Even if its used. As for fitting the DHX's, if its an 06 and it has a tube that the SS pivot bolt passes thru then NO they won't fit, unless they're upside down. If its an 07, that part has been removed...

    Beacon Blowout 2008 photo blowout

    I would say yes, in some instances when the rear is set-up soft, the older frames (such as this one) may make contact with the seattube. It was never a major concern with most our customers, not to say it wasn't an issue with me though. Most part they knew that it could happen. They...

    the gearbox thread

    nsm, you don't want to know. Lets just say its 1st article effort and the next ones will be worthy of weight disclosures. Its really wasn't important to me, the weight that is on these two frames. In the end, it's very important that this design does meet what we deem, an acceptable...

    the gearbox thread

    2nd gen proto will have a slightly higher tt so the shock can be flipped back into the correct ( in my eyes) resi up and forward postion. Still have't decided yet if it will be a straight tube as some have suggested though. Kinda like the curved tt look. And yes the design does lend itself to...

    2008 Rotec RL9 W/ Remote Avalanche DHS

    You should be able to loose at least another pound or so by using lighter cranks, those saints are heavy. Doesn't Shimano offer another DH worth crankset? The bikes built up great guys, good job! Let me know how the sizing and geo feels to you.
