    34.4 LBS 10" Pedal Bike for Natty !

    I through an AM build with all the good stuff on a Santacruz Carbon V10 for a Buddy that wanted a big plush pedal bike for ripping up the gnar.
    It will take acoupple months to get settled on the final Head angle and clean up afew of the Details and get her dialed , but for the first shakedown run today it worked really nice.

    Its 34.4 lbs with all the bells and whistles on it and he pedaled it right up this morning

    Well sure, but I know we will be making alot of travel, geo, chassis and component changes so at first it will be dialed and made sure on all the components and set up, then I will detail and clean up all the routing and lengths as required

    I did not really take any pains with TI hardwear yet and the reverb post that I will have to shorten later once we are sure on a length , and the carbon wheels that will go on it , .......so this one will end up right at 33 lbs .

    I know that a 10" travel small would be lighter than my 6 1/4 " bike , and that would be just to cool

    Its about time we get 10" bikes pedaling up and blasting down Southmountain

    Tim Curry accompanying the video walk through was cool too. I bet that thing is a blast especially on the descent.

    that's just silly....

    yes, I'd rock that!!
    7" fork?
    With an angleset you could get it closer to a trailbike geometry and still be slacked out enough to rip back down with confidence.

    Yes it is the 7" travel 66 TI RC3 , these RC3 zokies really do work extremely well and have a large range of adjustment so you rarely need re-valving .

    We have the "angle set" and will be testing different head angles as needed , the adjustability and weight of this bike make it very versatile .

    LMAO! Remember Mike's friend that was riding the waterfall on his first try...on a mtn bike?

    Well, with enough suspension, a retarded monkey could ride down anything as well. Great job removing the feel of the mountain. I suppose a hover board will be gnar as well.

    That said, I'd still love to try one out.

    Ken Bentit did the same thing with his Phoenix - single crown, AM build, and rides it on National.

    I thought for sure I'd see you guys rolling that thing up Bee's Knees this morning. I was solo again, and wasn't a very impressive outing for me either. It was a bit warm and Humid as all get out.

    Ezra goes up that thing good on his SS HT , he runs that fast just like you and Justin do.
