    That's why it's called "HD Photo and Build Thread" There's nothing lame about posting brand new and clean photos of the bike. That's the cleanest shot you'll ever see that bike.

    Yes, it is.
    I was very skeptical at first (given the DHX Air's reputation), but the custom-valve it has from Fox is truly great. I like it a lot. I think for 99% of the trails I ride it's perfect. The damping feels very controlled. Small bump sensitivity is absolutely great--truly impressed with that. The adjustments cover a solid range. The DHX Air is a no-brainer upgrade over the RP23 imo (unless you're a super weight-weenie).

    The remaining 1% where the DHX Air is less than ideal is a top-to-bottom run from top of Garbanzo (Whistler) or something like Schleyer >> Rock City (where your shock is oscillating a ton). The shaft gets noticeably warm and I can tell there's a slight degradation in damping (spiking). I'm soon getting a custom-valved coil (either Roco WC or DHX) with a Ti-spring for when I use my Ibis for pure DH.

    Yes! Very nice.

    Let's hear about your build. I'm thinking coil w/Ti spring will be the way to go.

    Thanks!!

    To the folks out there who were offended by my jab on "clean bikes", sorry! Please don't take it personally--I'm just trying to turn the stoke-meter up a few notches in this section of the forums!

    If it's any consolation, here's another pic of me about to eat sh*t onto a pile of rocks. Enjoy?




    Clearly, I put my bike through some abuse, but hey, isn't that what's it's for?
    I've had this thing for about a month. After 90+ runs in 6 straight (10 to 5) days of shredding in Whistler and 3 consecutive weekend trips to Downieville, I can honestly say that this thing still feels like the day I built it ('cept the suspension is "broken in" now and feels fantastic). I've checked my bolts periodically, but nothing has ever come loose. No creaks. Everything is dead-on straight. So solid!

    how does it do on the rough stuff?

    Rb,

    This may be more appropriate for another thread, but since you're clearly putting it through its paces, I wonder if you could give a more detailed review on how it performed on the park.

    Particularly interested in your thoughts on how it feels compared to a big bike on the rough stuff in Whistler. I'm sure it's brilliant on the flowy trails like A-line, but how about on the rocky rooty stuff? Did you find yourself wanting more travel, etc., at any point when in Whistler?

    Thanks, Mike

    Epic stack indeed! So what exactly is happening in that vid? Are you really trying to hump your stem at high speed, or does it just look that way??

    Actually...... that was yours' truly getting a dirt sample. I remember thinking to myself "Uh oh.... good night...." before hitting the ground. I honestly don't remember exactly how/why it happened (you can see why), but I think it was because I slipped a pedal and just so happened to ping a rock/root at the same time.

    Amazingly, I barely have a scratch on me from that crash! Phew! The Mojo HD was also unscathed.

    If you look close enough, you can see the GoPro helmet cam I was wearing break off and fly down the trail... LOL
