    Post your Jekyll mk 2's

    Hopefully I will be getting my Carbon Jekyll frame-set soon, and I'm looking for some inspiration for what to use to build it up. I noticed that their is no thread with everyones 2011 mk 2 Jekyll's, so i though i would start one.

    So lets see those Jekyll's !!

    Great pics. Love the night one with the light

    The Green finish is really starting to grow on me (which is just as well as i have been told that's the finish i'm getting for the warranty replacement), how does it look in the flesh compared to pictures?

    What size is yours?

    Got my frame, just waiting for all the new parts to arrive to get it built up, the wait has been long and painful, but hopefully worth it

    Chicko,

    The bike has been having a rest since 6 days of non stop abuse in Moab. The bike is awesome, totally love it.

    The only problem I had was the bolt holding the shock on kept loosening and the annoyed clicking noise would come back. Nothing else apart from that!

    The biking season is ending here in Calgary so time to tuck up the bike soon and get the snowboard out!

    I took plenty of footage of my trip to moab so will try and get a little video together for viewing.

    Glad to hear your loving it, im desperate to get mine built up..

    I did wonder about the single sided bolt shock mounting design. I had hassle with the mounting shock bolts on my Rize, although i solved all the issues by replacing the stock bolts with ones designed for a Orangle Pro 5.

    What have you done to solve the bolt issue ?

    Looks great NRain. How are you liking it? How do you feel it perform against the other bikes in your riding group?
