    Thanks guys I can't wait to get it to the mountains. AngelFire NM for my birthday weekend June 14th.-17th. and then Whistler BC July 20th.-28th. Hopefully I can get to Brian Head UT in August and do Dark Hollow (my Favorite Trail EVER!).

    You'll be in Angelfire during the Big Mountain Enduro. Should be a fun weekend.
    Keep the Country country.

    Yeah and just in time. The Snow should be melting in Whistler in just 10 short weeks. Whew, I just made it.

    Wow... I really like it! Surprisingly, it did not come out looking over the top, considering all the customization you've done. Very well done!

    Since you're such a weight weenie (not on DH bikes of course), how much does it weigh (not factoring in the fact that you don't have dual ply DH tires on there... that's probably another 2 lbs)?

    Thanks Ron. It's sitting at 37.04lbs. right now but sure to gain another 2-3lbs. before hitting the mountains. My Intense M1 was 47lbs., my Schwinn Straight 8 was 40lbs., my Karpiel Disco was 36lbs. but this frame was HEAVY. If I end up putting gears on it it will gain another lb. or so.

    With a Boxxer WC, Ti spring and etc. I could get it around 35lbs. in Race trim.

    Well the bike rides Great! Here are some shots of it (and me) in action in Whistler.



    The Heart of Darkness drop.



    Top of the World trail.



    I can't remember which trail this was on.



    Wooden berm on Blue Velvet. Great Blue trail.



    I have since changed the stem and bar to ones with more reach and rise. It feels even better now.
