    That's a rare find.
    The guy that built it-Mitch Scott- is/was out of Yuma Az.
    There's probably only been a handful of those bikes made.

    No clue.
    Old skool industrial "boutique" DH frame.
    Post up a pic if you have one-especially of the head tube area.
    Diamond plate......you don't see that on a DH frame everyday.

    dude, if you didn't already buy this, don't.

    It's a URT downhill bike and it's pretty clear that the designer didn't actually know anything about mountain bike suspension when he designed it. I quite literally cannot say enough bad things about that design.

    You'll be better off with almost any other bike from 2001 onwards besides a CPC patriot.

    i'm pretty sure that braking setup is a thinly veiled ejector seat also...

    There are eight (8) bolts securing the rear brake to the bike. Most bikes have 4, and some particularly well designed ones have 2.

    Check out the diamond plate at the head tube junction and behind the seat tube.

    wow, I didn't see that. Nothing screams "qualified framebuilder" quite like low tensile diamondplate gussets.
