    Not sure how much it weighs. Will have to have it weighed cause lots of okes have been asking. It's not as light as my AM Mojo...

    Blue Fox logo just didn't work with the rest of the color scheme. Looks much better now than what it did. A gamble that paid off! Finally got the DHX where I want it. Bike is flying now. Was out riding with two Bullits and a Glory this weekend and I think it frustrated the other guys that I could keep up and bomb down the same stuff they were. The bike is a monster.

    Frustrated them even more that I was able to climb back up!

    Nice ride.

    I just ordered a 2009 Mbuzi frame and am in the process of collecting the rest of the parts for a 100% new build up. My Heckler was stolen out of the garage and the insurance co is paying for a replacement.

    Will post pics when it is done, but below is the plan:

    2009 Mbuzi - DHX 5.0 Coil
    2008 Talas 36 RC2 - On sale at LBS for $780!!!
    XT Cranks
    XT Brakes - 203MM's
    XT Shifters
    XT F&R derailuers
    XTR Chain
    XT Cassette
    XTR pedals for XC rides
    Sunline V1 peds for moshing
    Custom built Wheelset - Chris king hubs, Mavic EN521 hoops
    Specialized Purgatory Tires
    Chris King Headset
    Sunline Stem
    Easton Monkey Lite Carbon Bars
    Specialized Rival seat
    Thomson seatpost
    ODI Rouge Grips

    Can't wait. Wheels are being built now and frame should be here by end of next week.

    About how much do you weigh and what are your DHX 4.0 settings, if you don't mind me asking?
