    Love it. Pedals OK but accelerates like a rocket when pointed down. Used it on everything from lift served to Whole Enchilada this year.
    The sufferfest up Burro was so worth it on the way down.

    Cheers mate! Been really loving it, the fit, the ride, everything. Weight is a bit of a concern though as I use it for everything. Right now its a whopping 17,4kg with pedals o_O

    Future upgrades:

    Paint--> Green, as soon as I get the stickers
    Stem--> Possibly to some lighter one, as that Straitline weighs A LOT, haven't seen any nice ones though..
    Cranks--> SixC, e13, XO or Atlas FR
    Bar--> Atlas FR, SixC, Chromag or Enve DH
    Brakes--> Hope or XO levers for the Codes
    Cassette--> Some sram 1080-1090
    Rear tyre--> Some 2,4 UST, possibly
    Seat Post--> I-Beam Carbon/Atlas
    Seat--> I-Beam Atlas
    Titanium spring

    That should shed some weight off Lets see what I can afford...

    So, I've just finished rebuilding the bike
    There was slight problem with headset, one part was missing, but it's done

    Surprisingly, even though, the frame is rad heavier, the bike is still 14,82kg Or maybe my scale broke down and doesn't show anything else!?





    Some numbers:
    wheel base: ca. 1170mm
    BB height: 345mm
    TT horizontal: ~555-560mm

    Another one

    Hi, check my bike

    Garage made steel frame, 190mm of travel
    66 RC3 fork
    DHX 4.0 shock
    MTX rims, Novatec hubs, Minions with butyl casing
    Shimano SLX brakes and cranks, Shimano Tiagra rear derailleur and cassette
    E13 Freechucker chainguide
    Atomlab, Sunline, DMR, RooX, ODI and HT components
    18,4kg, 40,5 lbs

    I was building on a budget and rather for indestructibility than weight. That frame maybe looks funny, but it's not the first of its kind and it's well proven construction with intuitive geo. I'm really happy with it

    Angle of shock is weird but it works well. It's pretty plush and bottomless, almost

    Norco Truax entry for my single crown FR bike. Still fine tuning the setup. Right now it sits as follows:

    Med frame with Vivid Air R2C and Talas 180 (nice to have the Talas for the climb up the hill)
    Just installed 1 degree angleset cup for a 64.5 degree head angle
    35mm stem (bike runs a little large for my taste in a medium)
    740 x 40mm riser bar (tried low riser didn't like the feel)
    X9 drive train
    KS i900 dropper post (shared between bikes)

    Bike weight between 37.5lbs and 35.5 depending on tires

    One set of wheels built more sturdy and running 2-ply DH tires
    Second set of wheels a little lighter with 1.5 ply running tubeless (also used on my trail bike)

    Only had a few rides and just getting comfortable on it, but liking the ride for sure.

    Will update pics asap.

    Bought the frame in Feb of this year and moved the components from my old ride over. This was when I finished it before I took it to Mountain Creek this summer.

    Thank you. It took quite a while, but it rides like a dream. That Monarch makes it feel so much different than the RP23 I had on thee before. And with that front end out 1 more degree from the headset it is a manual machine!

    everyone was mocking me at first (locally) regarding the fork. Such a nice bike with such a shitty fork etc etc

    I opted for the vengeance coil fork without even HSC or LSC, wanted to keep it as simple and hopefully as maintenance free and trouble free as possible

    one dude kept asking me if he can get that fork at Toys R Us, that's where i musta bought it

    joke is on them now, now that I had the bike for a week or two and I'm pushing after I dialed it in, I'm sitting on their asses when they are on DH bikes, also starting to really put in some very fast downhill times on strava on the bike. When I am sitting on their asses now I keep yelling at them, "move over or feel my vengeance". will take a while for that to get old for me.

    the fork is very good. It performs well after I made adjustments, at first it was way to mushy and soft and blew through travel way too easy, Finally im running it with the Xfirm spring, quite a lot of rebound, and 20 PSI more pressure than than their website recommends (don't ask me how its a coil and air fork at same time, news to me, didnt realize that when I got it).

    Its giving me predictable 7 inches of travel, using the whole range of travel, only bottoming it out on really big stuff now or when I screw up coming short on stuff.

    I really like it, only fork I prefer is my zocchi 888 dual crown on my jedi. But thats not really a fair comparison. The Vengeance is performing way better than every fox fork I have ever owned.

    Here's my budget RM-7 build. I built it for the local bike parks and lift served riding. I don't do much to any uphill rides so I went with a single speed setup. Frame and fork feel very balanced. I just need a rear brake, run the chain, and cut the seatpost down then it will be ride-able.

    My friends and I were over there last Friday doing some dh shuttles in the snow. A little sketchy but fun none the less.

    V10 Carbon with alu. rear

    I use my bike primarily for trail riding, but am looking forward to a trip to AZ this year for DH at mount lemmon, as well as general trail riding, and hope to make it up to NH from CT a couple of times for DH next season.

    x-large (6' 3.5" 245 lbs) - 38 lbs 8 ounces as shown

    Schwalbe Fat Albert 2.4 front and rear with 4 ounces of stans in each tire. Will run Maxxis DHF with tubes for DH.
