    Nope, actually it is an 8.75x2.75...and the Totem has already been converted to coil too.

    Also, notice the custom headbadge:

    I almost used this one, but the contrast looked better with the all-green version.

    Thanks, my buddy did most of the work just kinda messing around one weekend when we were hanging out. His bike looks even better, (he also has a 6point).

    I know that he is in the process of a redesign, but I will see if I can get him to post some pics of what it had looked like up until now...

    Bah, I thought you'd post those nice close-ups that you took a while back... /slap

    Anyway, I got a couple from that trip too (w/ Mike's 7point in there as well...)

    Wow, those close ups were needed to appreciate the detail. Some impressive design right there. I'll have to dig up some pics of mine, but after seeing these I may get a paint job as well. I do have a quick vid doing a wheelie drop on my 6point that shows how strong these frames are...

    sweet vid. I love my 6point. I have updated her quite a bit. i changed the rear shock to a fox DHX 5 coil with 8.75x.2.75 and added a fox float 180mm fork. also i did the vanilla coil swap in the fork too. added a 1.5degree angleset to give it more slack. it rides like a beast. the 6point is IMO one of the best all around bikes and I was sad to see it go and will be more sad when i have to get rid of it.

    I totally agree. This bike has been unreal. I have mine weighing in at 34.5lbs. Changed bars to Race Face Atlas 780's, stem to Answer 50mm, fork to Lyrik RC2DH, wheels to Easton Havoc tubeless, crankset to RF Atlas, and a seat dropper. Where did you get the paint job done? And is it holding up well?

    He painted it himself, (mine as well, and a few others...)

    i painted it myself. plus i painted warshades as well. the paint is holding up very nicely but thats cause i use automotive grade paint and clear coats and use a professional grade spray gun. I do paint bikes on the side. check out my site if you are interested.

    I've built up a couple of Knolly's recently and wanted their "team green"' however, it wasn't available at the time. Here is what I built up...

    The 3 Knolly's I built this year!

    I would need some dings/scratches buffed out of the 6Point and likely choose that green. How much do you charge for this?

    EDIT...I just checked your site!

    I still have some of the close ups that I took with my phone after we were reassembling my bike...

    It depends on how involved it would be. but for just the frame i would say around $400 including the sanding off the scuffs. it would also include custom colors and designs. i can also have the old paint stripped for an additional $75.

    Daaammmnnn! Those are some sick custom 6points! Great job on those Akuria! and Mayha, that jump is massive!! These 6point frames can definitely handle their own. Mine is still thrashing hard, no matter what I throw at it!

    Anyone try 27.5 wheels on the rear of a 6 point to see if they clear. I remember having a decent amount of space with 26.

    i have bought and sold 6points in all sizes and multiple 7points. 08 7point is where it's at... 100 grams heavier than a 6 point and much much better suspension geo

    HOLY ****!!!! I can't believe you just sent this out? I just got back from a ride on my 6Point which is my back up bike that I don't ride very often. I love this bike and always have. I'll probably never get rid of it.....So anyway, I just came in from putting it away and was looking at the rear triangle to see if it would accommodate 27.5. There is a lot of room back there and should not be a problem at all. The timing is actually scary as this thread doesn't see much action!

    That timing IS crazy!
    I couldn't agree more with the way you feel about the 6 Point! I simply cannot get myself to get rid of it. Mine's been stripped down and polished by hand...ha ha. Every now and then I pull it out of the box and I end up staring at it for way too long. It's just such a nice looking design. Not sure what got me thinking about it this evening. I've gone through a bunch of rides and still some of my favorite riding memories were on the 6 point going all the way back to 2007. It's painful to think it's sitting in a box after shredding on the thing for so long. It's great to know I could fit some 27.5 wheels back there. What I was thinking about doing was getting some offset bushings to lower the BB. Maybe it's crazy, but It's good know I'm not the only one who wants to keep this classic frame alive somehow. Thanks for the reply!

    So this is what I'm doing with the 6Point during the winter. It's simply amazing on hard pack and especially icy luge type trails. You can lean this thing over on ice and carve like you wouldn't believe. I'm also doing climbs that seem completely unrealistic! So, as far as 27.5.....I'm actually considering this as well and may put a slightly shorter stroke shock on to lower the BB as to off set the rise from the larger wheels. This will also decrease the head angle slightly and be more in line with current geometry. No matter what comes of it, I will be happy to experiment and potentially create a friggin' beast!!

    Just finished a refurb of my 6point6 last month. The weight difference is noticeable and the bike feels way faster. Can't wait to take it up to the mountains next season to see how it feels in some DH.

    Very cool...I was thinking if tossing my DBAIR on mine as well. How do you like it on yours? Noticeable? And do you know your current head angle?

    It worked very well on the 7pt frame. It actually wasn't my shock, i'm good friends with frgeoff and its his shock. He currently runs it on his 7pt now. He had loaned me the shock for the bike to use while visiting him at South Mountain in Phoenix.

    I did measure the HA when it was together and it was about 66deg, with a 160mm travel x-fusion Vengeance 1st gen fork. The 1st gen had an 8mm taller axle to crown than the later ones.
