    I had the Flow rims painted to match the frame and well all the Titanium bolts are because my name is Matt Kock. That's a Joke!

    I know. I've had a couple knee surgeries so I just thought I'd coast ALL next Summer and then in this months MTB Action KHS team Pro Kevin Aiello is running a SingleSpeed DH bike in the national and world cup circuit so I guess I'm onto something.

    I thought about a bash guard and I may add one later but for now I'm digging the Lopes guide. Super Clean!

    Looks like an awesome project. I always LOVE building up DH bikes from the ground up. Something about threading a BB into a brand new frame gives me the butterflies.

    The guy I got the frame from had already bought the Mango RaceFace cranks and he threw them in. I figured what the hell and went with it. All Out Baby!!! Parts keep coming in every day but the King hubs and Fox 40 fork probably won't be here until after the first of next year. Easton is also back ordered on the Havoc 35 bolt on stem. (in Mango of course)
    I've had an Intense Uzzi DH, Intense M-1, Schwinn Straight 8 and Karpiel Disco Volante but I'm really excited about this thing!

    Not a giant gain but these did come in today. Color (Mango) matched hydraulic hose guides by Mowa.


    I'm thinking of using THIS chainguide. Kevin Aiello (Pro Downhiller from Team KHS) is using this same one. And it has an Orange pulley!

    DUDE SICK! I am Seriously considering getting this frame! But hadn't heard much about it.

    Mind if I ask a few questions??

    -Are you by chance over 6foot b/c they only have small and med frames, though it says Med fits up to 6'6''

    -What do you think so far about the quality as a DH Bike? I have a Marin Mount Vision 5.8 (2010) now....love it.....


    Thanks man! Can't wait to see the progress! It's making me want to get mine now!

    MBM I'm 5'9" and it's the Med frame. It rides sweet. Kinda like a Santa Cruz V10. Build quality is amazing!

    Well, a coworker's name is Mike Kock... no joke.

    It brings some funny situations like in "you'd rather go to talk to Mike Kock"

    Awesomeness Warp! When I was younger I hated being Matt Kock but as I got older being Mr.Kock was a blessing and a curse. ;-)

    Where does your chain guide bolt in? First time to see one like it. Looks like a SS tensioner?

    mikkosan The chainguide replaces the rear derailleur. I'm going singlespeed like Pro Downhiller for KHS Kevin Aiello. There is a write up about him and his steed in the newest Mountain Bike Action.

    howardyudoing I'm putting up pictures as fast as parts are coming in. Believe me the wait is worse for me.

    He's going SS.
    I'm no DHer, but I don't have to be to say that that color combo is SICK!
    Final pics are gonna be good.
    It's pronounced "so pro and cool."
    It was an impulse decision.
