    I'm with bullcrew! I'd hate to see your #1 bike, bling might burn my eyes out!

    Nice shots man. Goes to show so.goes can kill it... atleast the rider can in this case... sick shots.
    Thanks! I would have to give credit to the guy who took most of those shots though.

    It's a great ride, incredibly stable and it doesn't feel very heavy once you get used to it.

    Something baffles me a bit though, the thing weighs 40 pounds on the dot and (without whiping out Excel) I can't really figure out what is so heavy out about it. Front is wheel has a dual ply tire with an XC tube in it and the rear has a single ply tire with a DH tube. I can't really figure out why it's so heavy compared to a lot of builds I see here with heavier rims, tires, cranks and forks.

    You guys seal up your frame and tires with nitrogen don't you... :band:

    just looked it up. looks sick but i dont think i have the legs to push a 28 in ma and vt. i wish they made a 26 or 24.

    I guess it really depends on where you ride. I already spin out now and then with teh 28t, could not go lower (but it's great for the climbs).

    it wouldny be bad by any stretch of the imagination but if you are gonna drop that kind of ash on a frame you have better options. if you want to stay with intense id look at the ss or uzzi.

    That's the most beautiful bike I've seen in a while, now I want one. Do you know how much it weighs? Care to post your build specs?

    where i ride the climbs are either short steep and technical or long and steep. the common denominator being they are steep and my legs and cardio wont allow me to mash up the hills.

    Thanks

    2 things.

    First at 35lbs that is about all I would want to push up hills. You get used to it and it's a lot about fitness but I really wouldn't want to add more, which the Hammer would. Thought about it.

    The second is after riding it for a couple of months with the 32 front only and getting sore knees and not being able to push up the steepest climbs I taped the holes in the Saint and installed a 24 tooth inner ring. I gained 2 lower gears and lost 2 upper gears and the spacing between gears is more even now. There really isn't anything I will spin out on around here and only get into the 11 tooth cog every once and a while as it is. 2nd gear is really good for climbing steep stuff and I have a fairly good granny if I need it. I used 1st yesterday and climbed up something that I had never made it up. I can shift down to the small ring by pushing it over with my shoe but have to put it back up by hand. But to tell you the truth I don't really even need the 32 for around here. I ordered a Blackspire trials ring guard and when that gets here I'm just going to take off the 32 and run with the 24 only.

    Most thought having 7 inches of travel front and back on a XC bike is nuts but the truth is it works better. I have it set up supper squishy with a lot of high speed compression dampening for hard hits.

    Might not be a popular decision with the 29er rigid pushing big ring guys but hey I don't ride with them anyhow.

    If I ever do get to a down hill park I just have to change a few things out and should be good to go.

    Heh, no worries, i understand the pluses and minuses. I'm on a 42 pound Maelstrom myself.. using an old 66 with ETA, a travel adjust seatpost, and 24-36 chainrings. Built for no holds barred epic riding. :thumbsup:

    NICE! Is there a dealer in OR? Looking at the specs it looks to be exactly what I'm looking for right down to the 17" chainstays.

    I WANT!

    Here's mine. Just built it up this summer.

    07 Trek Session 77
    09 DHX-5
    09 Totem Coil
    Outlaws
    FSA Moto-X Cranks
    Blackspire chain guide
    Azonic 420 pedals
    Nevegal 2.5, Minion 2.5
    WTB Pure-V saddle
    BB-7s (for now)

    sits right around 40lbs. Can't complain at all considering how much money I (don't) have into it. I've ripped it at Plattekill twice, can't wait to tear up Diablo in the spring. WAHOO!

    best fork i've owned.. i've had the 09 Lyrik U-Turn, 09 Totem /w Mission Control, and the 2010 boxxer team... the Fox feels way better than all of them.
