    Some girls like silver and gold....

    The ghost gets some new hardware.
    I haven't ridden it around yet as its been cold even when the sun was out and i haven't found the correct washer placement yet (one of the more anoying things that previous bb/crank desings have avoided). Maybe i'll give them a try tommorow at urban.

    I have Diabolus cranks, stem and post on my hardtail. I think Race Face makes some nice stuff.

    Cool.

    When I built my AC up, I put Diabolus cranks on it too. I like the ability to adjust the chainline with those four white 1 mil spacers. Depends upon what chain guide you will use to where you put your spacers. Ended up swapping the Diabolus and Saints between the AC and Chase because I couldn't get the chainline right on the Chase until I did. I was using an MRP and needed the ability to tweak. And that spacer system came in handy when I replaced the MRP with an STS on the Chase. Nice stuff. You will like those Diabolus cranks, I think they are stiffer than my Saints. Kind of wish I would have bought two pairs now instead of the Saints.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    I like those Diabolus bars too, happy with them on two bikes. And their customer service has been excellent with me on a seatpost and the front plate on a stem.

    Nice looking stuff! I thought about those, but since I've never had a crank/bb breakage issue, stuck with squares. $100 got me the crank/bb shipped. NOS. Race Face Taperlock/DH model.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    yeah. getting a Z-150FR. i think 6x6 should suit me well, especially as my first fully bike.

    i'm sure i'll pedal this up some stuff, not just shuttle/lift ride it.

    i can always pick up a DC later if i want. i'll likely go super-t or boxxer if i do. something i can pick up a decent one of for not too much $$$$$.

    Sounds like it'll be pretty sweet. That'll be an excellent all around bike that is suitable for big drops and dh terrain but isn't afraid to take you to the top. It definitely won't be too hard to climb with that thing especially if you're running atleast a dualie front setup. Can't wait to see fully built pics!

    I bent my XTRs and BB some time at Keystone or shuttleing. I replaced the BB(which took most of the abuse) but the crank are was still a little out of whack and that was messing w/ the spider.

    I can't wait to see you rip it up on that, I think you're gonna like it. I hope you're gonna put platforms on it too IMHO it would be a shame not to.
