    C'mon, that's not even enough for a tease. I could pull a ton of crap out of my tool shed and claim "new build".

    I didn't think it would make that much difference between the X0 and the X9 but it is. I wouldn't
    pony up for my DH rig, but it sure is nice on the enduro.

    yep, my dh rig came standard with XO stuff. I took them off and replaced with X7 stuff off my all-mountain. I got an left X0 shifter on ebay so the XO stuff is on the all-mountain.

    Send those back. Get Enduro's. And use 10w-40 Royal Purple or Ames oil.
    Problem: "Bike has trouble going up steep hills."
    Fix: Recommend pressing harder on the pedals.

    heheh. Seriously though.. See how the Fox seals are one piece Dust Wiper and seal combo? Dirt gets a straight path through to the inside of the forks basically. Thats why the foam ring is dirty as hell when you open up the seals. All that dirt is tearing up your cartridge seals and bushings. The Enduros are two part like zokes. So if the first line of defense doesn't work (the dust wipers) The oil seal can hopefully push the dirt aside and has a little pocket of space to do so. Routine maintenance you can lift up the wipers and clean out above the oil seals. The Fox 36 is a semi bath so you can use the royal on the inside to lube the bushings. It stays put on the bushings. The stock 7wt. damper oil is too light for the job.

    Excuse me, but it's an All Mountain bike. It has no water-bottle braze-ons (that's how you can tell).

    I have two goals for this bike... keeping up with team Whodaphuk and launching stuff (obviously launching very big stuff will still be done on the other bike).

    No! But my wife is getting diamond earrings and a trip to Italy for her birthday.

    Guess where I am...right...now!!!

    To bad I'm frikin sore from riding Seymor, and the guys took me down two of the hardest
    trails, and I was riding my "All mountain" bike with a XC lid and no armor...(the only one
    on the whole frikin mountain w/o a FF helmet.

    I'll hit up the GLC for you Robert.


    That build looks awesome BTW.

    I'm going to take a guess on the weight coming out around.............29 lbs.

    Alright, by unspoken internet law, you have spoken of a picture too many times to not post it.

    Give it up, boo!
