Just to let everybody know that Risse has come out with new clamps for the Fox 40 Fork. The kit comes as a upper and a lower or just an upper and is offered in 1 1/8th or 1.5. The top crown has mounts for an direct mount stem. Photos will be up with more details by the end of the week

1.5 is cool, yes. And you dont have to run those dumb reducer cups, wich i believe cause them to creak allot. At least, all the 1.5 reducing headset i have run creak, including the big fat pig and the xtrem pro.

It's simple.

For arguments sake, you buy a bike with a 1.5 headtube (SGS, Nicolai, Turner, etc. allot come with 1.5). Now, you can run the 40 without needing to use reducer cups. You can now run a proper 1.5 headtube which is stronger. So why not if a: you have a 1.5 bike. b: you need a new set of crowns anyways.

Not to mention direct mount stems

Answer your question?

Well, it allows you to use the new direct mount stems like those made for the newer Boxxers etc. Makes for a stiffer and lighter set up.
Go-Ride should be out with their integarted crown/stemfor the 40 this fall also but I think it will be a complete set up and you won't be able to switch stems etc and will also be expensive.

and go-rides is a honker-long 50mm stem on a fork that has virtually no forward sweep to begin with which visually makes their stem "look" like a 60 or 70mm in relation to the stanchion tubes. atleast that's what the proto pix look like. that's too damn long for me.

50mm is too long? :think: Um dude I think you need a smaller bike.

the risse stem allows for the new direct mount stem standard to be used. That was really the only point for the top crown. It gives you a choice, which is cool. I have a set ready to put on my 40 when i arrive home...and they will all go on my shiny new 224.

i know it's all personal preference and thus many reasons why certain setup feel comfortable. growing up, my bmx bikes didn't have honker long stems and neither do motorcycles so i dont want my DH bike to feel like a XC or road bike. more of a moto feel.

Ahh YES

Jimmy Pop... Go-ride's stem is 50mm, but can also be switched to 43mm. From my experience 50mm is the most preferred stem length for DH racing. The bmx bikes you refer to come with 50mm stems also. As for MX, that is not the same. You don't weight the front end of a mx bike by leaning forward. You use the front brake and the weight of the engine (mounted near the front wheel).

I haven't seen the Risse integrated stem yet, but their stems in the past have also been 50mm. The big difference between our system and a universal system (or Risse's past systems) is that our bar height is much lower. When racing an 8" fork you want your stem as low as you can get. I've even noticed a lot of Pros running traditional stems upside down on 8" forks.

I'm a little curious how you guys plan to make the 1.5 work with the integrated stems. Most stems, with the exception of the new e13, have a hole for the steerer. A 1.125 dia hole.
I just checked my drawing and I don't think there is room for an e123 stem either. If there is, it's really cozy.

I must say, very good idea with the 1.5. Even if it is not needed for strength, if you have the 1.5 head tube, it would be nice.

That stem you're running can't be less than 40mm. Is it really that big a difference? It sounds from your post like the looks of it is more important than the actual reach. Well, 50mm is 50mm, regardless of what it looks like.

Twizzler, can you get a Risse crown for a 888 with the bolt on standard? I'd rather use the E13 or Sic stem then run the stock bolt on. It's just a bit too long.
