    zocchi ryder, can you measure distance from the ground to the handlebar (grips)? I have an impression that my handlebar is quite high :|
    how much does she(?) weight?

    It is about 44" vertical to the most outermost end of the grips.

    one more thing, this thing came equiped with a crazy reverse pull rear shifter

    5'11 and a half"

    P.S. Since its been a few weeks. The faith is still out performing everything. Nothing is taking away from the experience other than the crappy, reverse, long cage, floppy XC derrailler. Love the forks and DHX.

    my F2 is 1,5 month old, now. the only thing I don't like is the weight... everything else is perfect it's as good on some small urban drops as on the dirt track I hope I manage to ride it in the mountains before I take it to switzerland in July

    ps: I really like sram X-7... both RD and shifters

    so I am in Switzerland
    unfortunatelly I didn't take any pictures cause I decided not to carry the camera while riding as I crashed during the first ride fortunatelly nothing happened to me nor to the bike. they have a really nice FR tracks hidden in the woods, here in Switzerland very technical IMO. the bike was seriously tested during DH/FR marathon yesterday. 20km of stones, fire roads and single tracks, start at 2693m above the sea level, finish at 810.
    it's the best bike I have ever had, even when it's a bit too big

    just a recomendation to those who have not done anything to your stock faiths (2 and 3's). i'd cut down the steerer tube of the fork to lower the stack hight. all those spacers under and on top of the crown (below the stem) is just not necesary. plus, with it like that increases the leverage which will increase the stress around the headtube area... just a thought i'd share.

    anywho... i will be posting pictures of my faith frameset when it comes this week. anyone know if the 150x12 mm axle comes with the frame?

    weighed 45-46'ish with that build right there

    got her down to 42 pounds even when i switched from:
    -avid mechanicals to juicy 7's
    -3 year old haro bars to fsa dh k-force
    -kalloy/wtb power v to dsg i-beam/bel-air
    -wtb timberwolves to kenda blue groove/nevegal combo (saved 1 lb. on each wheel)

    if i can get it down to 40 lbs. i'll be happy. this winter i might shave some weight off the wheels. maybe ex823's instead of the ex729's? and maybe stan's no tubes. also, maybe some fsa gravity cranks. their light for what they are... 780 grams?

    I've got some OK action shots of faith 1 & 3 if anyone is interested.
    One problem. I'm computer illeterate & don't know how to attach a photo.
    I think part of the problem is the photo size. it is 3.04MB. I've worked out how to reduce the size but the photo becomes too small to appreciate. I'm a faith junky and am easilly pleased, but there are some nice shots. 8-12ft drops, depends how you guy's measure them.

    It's almost winter, and I'll get an '06 next year! The frame is a bit heavy, but it rides great!

    Hey guys, tell me what size are your frames? And how tall are you ?

    I am app. 6'3" and wonder if I should take 18" or 20" frame? I want to use this bike also for some non-shuttle mountain trips, so..... ?

    btw. Did you have any problems with bearings??
    Passion beyond reason!

    Very Nice,
    May I ask why you changed your Juicy 5's to 7's.
    Did you have problems or do you just have lots of money to spend??
    Also, I'm presuming you didn't feel the 66's were upto the DH challenge. it this correct and why if you don't mind me asking. I don't race but mainly ride DH. Just interested.

    i upgraded from avid mechanicals to juicy 7's

    i bought the faith as a frame only, therefore most of the parts are new or were switched over, the super t being one of them

    Sweet, You've got yourself a nice rig there.
    I've punished my faith, 15-17ft drops, 30ft+ jumps.
    Downhillin & freeridin every weekend & she seems to charge through whatever I can dish out. as long as i'm headed downhill. I ain't pushin it uphill she's a big girl.
    I'm only a light weight but she seems bombproof. You've built your bike up with all the good shite. she's gonna scream.
    You'll have to send in some photo's of action shots when you can.
    Oh, yeah. don't know what type of riding you do, but by the look of your bike its downhillin and therefore I reccommend swaping the top links around. It will slacken the head angle and rail a lot better. I can give you the benefits disadvantages if you wish. but for downhillin I say just do it.
