    DAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMN... That thing looks HOT! Pretty similar component specs that I have on my ordered DHer.

    Please let us know what you think specifically about:

    -Truvativ Decendant DH single crank
    -Avid Elixer 9 disc brake
    -Sram X 9 rear 10 speed shifter

    I already know I'm going to change to an X.0 rear shifter, but curious what you think about the X9.

    HAVE FUN

    You ought to call it the "slick banana." I like the yellow

    I want an Aurum, but I can't stand the yellow. Too bad because I don't want the low end one.

    Yellow isn't my first choice; I really like the colorway of the Aurum 2 and would consider that and just upgrade at preference.

    Nice! I really dig the new Norco's. I have the Traux him on my list for a replacement bike after next year.

    If you are using IE9 turn on compatibility mode, but you should be using firefox.

    ...or, YOU could code your site so that anybody who clicks on your link can actually open it, regardless of browser. Just saying, YOU'RE the one who wants to share something with US...

    Nice looking bike, and a good little write-up too.
