    check out my new rehab bike: 6point6sixty6

    as soon as i get range of motion back, on my broken tibia plateau, i start pedalling. hopefully, i'll be taking my new frame on the dirt before i get ACL surgery. after i get a new ACL, i'll be doing a lot of deep mountain trail loops on this bad beaver:

    the bearings on this thing are much larger than the bearings on my v10. supposedly the 6point shares the same rear triangle, links and bearings with the 7point. that's reasurring. there's definately a lot of quality engineering going into every part on this rig.

    big thanks to zeb and simon at FLUIDRIDE for the frame connection!

    yah, i remember that. the bacon waffle at steve's is incredible. their "char benedict" is really good too. that's the highlight of my weekends these days, being injured and all.

    the bike is low, and should fit me perfectly. it's a 17". official weight at the velopro scale, with rear shock: 8 pounds, even. perfect.
    total bike target weight: 35 pounds.

    btw, the frame was supplied with a DHX5.0 AIR, unlike the 3.0 that would normally go on the 6point6. i'm stoked!

    they're no canfield bearings, but they are a lot bigger than the v10 bearings for sure.

    He got a good deal on it!!! You know the picture of the 6.6 on IH web-site?? It's this exact frame. Fluidride built it up for the IH photoshoot.

    6 points are sooooooooooo sick looking... I wish I just had an unlimited budget for bikes... Of course then I'd need an unlimited budget for garage space too... or maybe just a garage period...

    I don't know but when you are finished with that bike I'm sure it will be hot as hell.
    Road riders put their bikes on top of shiny $50,000 cars. But the average full-suspension rider puts his bike on top of a beat-up barely-hanging-together car that costs a fraction of what their bike costs. For them their bike is their life.

    i practically live in a garage. bikes and bike parts have taken over!

    i got up to 98degrees in bend today at the physical therapyst's. at 105degrees, i should be able to pedal a stationary bike without squirming in pain. this sucks.

    NICE looking start Sriracha---

    One bit of advice-if you are going to be using your IH for any amount of hucking, I'd highly recommend a coil shock, at least for a backup get a used vanilla or something. I've gone thru 2 of them DHX airs on my RFX, and finally got tired of it getting stuck down despite my best efforts.

    got that taken care of. the ROCO RC on my V10 just happens to be the same eye2eye, only it's got a 2.75" stroke, instead of a 2.5" stroke currently on the dhxAIR...that will essentially make it a 7pointlight.

    I thought I saw you hobbling around on crutches the other day. What happened?
    Bike looks like it will be sweet. Have a good recovery.
