    V10

    36 Lbs 14 Oz as it sits. Building new wheels, Easton stem on its way and a Ti spring should set it at about 36 even.

    Is Whistler open yet?

    So you decided on the Ti spring. Renton? What is the spring rate you are going with?

    thanks everyone. it is a cool looking bike. cant wait to get it out.

    Just picked up the Renton spring today, going to use a 350. I will mainly be using the bike in the 8.5" mode. but i have a 400 for 10" mode.

    Wow, good choice and what a bike it is. I think SC did quite well with this version of the V10.

    HAHA, those wheels have two seasons on them. they are a bit hard to keep clean, but they still look pretty good.

    I am having new wheel built as we speak with (black) 521's

    Why 8.5 when you can go 10"?

    My favorite riding is Whistler on trails like A Line, Dirt Merchant, Freight Train, etc. the bike will have a more playful, lively or poppy feel to it in the 8.5 mode.

    But, I plan on doing some DH racing in the NW area and those will be the times when I will most likely run it in 10" mode.

    Nice part is, you can swap the linkage and spring in about 10 minutes.

    ^ Gotcha, I guess my brain just needed an explanation for not using the extra 1 1/2 inches

    Now we need a pic of her being dirty girl.
