    Thanks! :D I guess its pretty similar to your build apart from the colour, raw does look sick though :) How much does yours weigh?

    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. :thumbsup:

    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!? :D

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

    Yup, not a big fan of the Glory but that one looks just sick! Maybe its the SC crown that makes it for me. Damn that's light though!

    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:)

    The leverage ratio on that shock looks like it just wont work!?

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

    Very nice job.
    Great to see others actually building stuff.

    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.
