    wait you ride you bike in wasabi? Doesn't that make your tires green?

    or perhaps you ride your sushi in flagstaff.

    Either way I recently have been lusting over a Chromag Stylus. I think the idea of a hardtail dh bike is a good one. Been lusting over a ragley blue pig too. Big travel up front big tire in the back. I would try wasabi on that for sure.
    Try this: HTFU

    I'm actually looking at some more tires to put on my DJ so I can get it back out for a little DH action. It's been stuck in pumptrack setup for too long now...

    I was putting together a HT rig for that. Guess I could slap a longer travel fork on my DJ and a 24" for the rear just for fun.

    I believe Kavu had a ht setup with a monster T on the front at one time.

    Hmm....Hey ken, think you could put a 888 on the front of that cheeta along with a 26, and leave a 24 on the back?

    I've got a Transmission Trans Am set up as a DH bike-- Fox Van 36 up front and Minions front and back. I just got into MTB after i moved up here a year and a half ago. I bought this bike as my sole ride and It's been fun getting used to it after having ridden bmx for the past twelve years.

    I don't see why people think HT isn't downhill capable. All you need is some bike control and balls.

    HAHAHA no way I would ever do that! Was hoping Id se a comment like that.

    I already have to long of a fork on whats supposed to be my downhill bike. Putting that fork on my hardtail would be a...."face in to the ground" wish.
