I'm mounting a Denton type stabilizer on an Arens frame. On the stock frame, I had it under the fuel tank. I've seen some people mount them down lown behind the bumper on the aftermarket frames. I checked the bracket and it will fit around the round tubing up front. Which place is better? Will it even work up front?

i would mount it up front behind the bumped. look in the picture section and look at 2rs r and see how he his his mounted that what i would do. if the stabilizer is adjustable it is easy to adjust when it is up front.

That is what I was thinking. It doesn't fit very well under the tank so I thought I might try mounting it up front. Wanted to see what everyone thought before I put marks in the nice new PC.

if you don't want to mark the PC you can get that thin tape foam and tape it to the stabilzer so it wont scsatch the pretty PC. as long as you clamp it down nice and tight with the foam in there it should move.

Up front mounting is certainly easier to get to for adjustments. But, I had the shaft break on one that was mounted up front, although I can't say with certainty why that happened. I sometimes wonder if it didn't get hit with a limb or something while woods riding. If that is the case, the front mount could expose the stabalizer to damage it might not sustain if mounted up under the tank.

Thanks for the pic. The alternative shown on the XC bike probably won't work with my duncan bumper, but I did check out your mx setup on the post in the photo section. Looks sweet. I'll probably try it out.

the bracket is adjustable for location ...on the body of the stabilizer .. so it can fit in MORE than 1 spot

Something to think about regarding mounting on the bumper..if you tag a tree and tweak the bumper, you could bend the stabilizer also. You would then be down a stabilizer, and have a hard time riding back with a bent shaft.

I'm mostly riding dunes. Only trees that I encounter are in the Oregon dunes. I think I'll be okay with it up front. May take a beating from sandblasting though.
