    I saw a similar frame on ebay but can't find a 184 x 44 shock anywhere.
    ...are you keeping the size med. frame?

    I was planning on eBay for the medium frame.. It is a bare frame no hangers or pivots etc just front and rear triangle.

    Nice build. Nice ride. You must have some skills to be able to put everything together so quickly.

    I have a Marathon 9r 2009 and a Marathon Sport 2009 frames. The only thing I don't like is the deraded flexbone that I hear is bound to eventually snap one day.I been hearing nightmare stores about trying to find them.If you know where to get tham, please let me know.I got my frames during Nasbar's big frame sale back in August. I think they might do it again...so GT fans...get ready!
    ...You got a nice ride!

    I spoke to a guy who deals with industrial springs.He hasn't seen the flexbones I have yet, but he thinks he can fabricate some for me.It's good to carry a spare one when you ride...in fact I'm thinking about carrying a spare shock in my seatbag too.
    Might sound crazy, but if the shock blows...a few extra grams of weight might not be a bad idea. It won't be right away, but I'll let you know what happened. The 4.0 i-drive is a nice system, but that flexbone was a bad idea I think...and eventually it will break!
