    Anybody have any time on a 06 or 07? How does it handle big drops? What about durability?

    The custom 190mm 66 is kind of F'ed on the 06, it's way too tall. It's taller than my 203mm Travis SC. You constantly feel like you're gonna fall off theback of the bike, especially when you're on the gas coming out of the corners. Lots of weight forward on that bike...

    It sucks up what drops I've done on it though, without an issue. It's not mine, it's a buddies, so I don't ride it that often (I ride the Octane). The 07 is probably a little more balanced front to rear.

    i have an 06 nitrous 10,,,i would say that he is right on the front fork,,,the bike needs a 200 mm travel duel crown,,,i have a 2007 888 on mine. the bike handles very very well, very plush. it does seem like it is a little to soft at times,,i went with a 650 spring on it and seem to help a bit. as far as drops. you can go to my pinkbike page and see my bike and videos of me doing 10-17 foot drops,
