    nice build, but can rockhoppers take that much abuse? I thought they were mostly an XC bike? how long of a fork can you put on the front of those?

    I asume they can take as much abuse as just about anything. And yes it is an XC bike. Why would you think other wise?

    Not sure on the fork length. I'm running 100mm fork which is the same length the bike came with stock.

    So many clean bikes...

    Mine's an '05 IronHorse Warrior something or another. I don't clean it aside from the moving parts and its covered in dents and scratches - the way a MTB should be.

    E-13 tensioner/guard, 175mm cranks, XTR rear deraileur/cogs, some cheap Rock Shox fork.

    I'd like a fork with more travel and some smoother/stronger wheels. I bent the **** out of my rear rim. The bike goes just about anywhere though.

    Yeah, it is the 21" version; I'm about 6'2" with really long legs, so anything smaller just doesn't really work that well for me. I'm only 165# fully geared up though, so definitely not a clyde. Haven't been able to put much more than about 50-75 miles on this frame yet, but I haven't found anything I don't like about it yet.
    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the 19" having "less upright" geometry... I looked at the spec sheet and I think that the geometry was pretty close, if not identical across the size range. Maybe the top tube slants more on the smaller frames?
    You should post up pics.... I'd love to see how someone else has built up one of these frames.

    butterbuts;

    thanks, now i see it, sure looks like fun..



    airdrawn;

    nice ride, but i would suggest that you try to turn your thru axle more, so that it doesn't catch anything, i had exactly the same thing (55R) and i caught a hanging branch and it pulled my whole bike down...

    i agree that Brodie is hot - but watch the QR skewer - I'd point it parrallel to the ground rather than pointing down like that.

    This has to be one of nicest looking bikes I've ever seen. Love orange paint schemes and I love the rims you got on that!

    What year 6500 is that? 2006?

    Here's another for the thread. '08 Gary Fisher Piranha. Wtb Weirwolf and Moto Raptor front and rear tires, azonic hotseat, lizard skins lock ons. I see a handlebar/stem/headset/brake change in the near future. It's been a lot of fun for not a lot of money.
