    I guess I need to recalibrate my scale then
    05 Turner SIx Pack, 68* HA, 31.56 lb.
    You'd get an even slacker HA without too much of a weight penalty with a 66 or Van fork.
    Check out this guy doing a 10ft drop with the same frame and shock in this thread.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned Bionicon. That's basically the reason to buy one.

    I'll start mentioning it once the suspension works well. Who cares if the fork can go down to 0 mm if it feels like poo at 180.

    From everything I hear (from people I trust to either know how to set up their suspension, fast riders, or a combo) it feels like poop. I'll pass.

    Theres a custom ventana out there with a 66 degree HA, low BB, lots of the right measurements that looks pretty rad.

    What's the name of the bike, "The Pedal Strike" ?
    Great specs but you lost me on the BB height.
    If it was a dirt jumper or 4x that would be different.

    IMHO, it's not that bad for a 5" travel bike. I've got a Turner 5-Spot and the BB is maybe 13.25". I only really have to watch the pedals when climbing over rough stuff with the fork locked down. I run 175mm cranks.

    +1, Except 6" of travel (13.25" BB).

    I think a coil is what keeps the strikes at bay - and some occasional user input.

    Low BB = good times

    Hey DFT, I just saw this thread. Are you referring to my bike? (I don't know who else you'd be referring to, since we ride together all the time and I'm the only one with an RFX.)

    My RFX is a 2006 and is 35.5 lbs not 39. And that's not caring a whit about weight, just a sensible semi-budget build for AM / FR riding, ya knucklehead.

    Get a closeout Reign somewhere. I know what you like and how cheap you are. Although I must say, nice new parts on your current ride now!

    funny. no referring to some OC guys with 38-39 pound rfx's. yep, reign or saction looks like the ticket.
