    Here's photo of a customer while at a former Al Queda training camp in Afghanistan. I'm pretty sure it was the only 6.6 in the country at the time. He's currently tearing up Italy on that bike.

    That is one of the coolest photos I've seen in long time! Redefines armor.

    How do you like the Z1 on the 6.6? Is it very heavy?

    Z1 is great. very plush and smooth.. like butter. in terms of weight.. nothing out of the ordinary I don't think.

    i have a question on a fork set up:
    I am geting full travel, and after like 4-5 foot drops to ever so slight tranny on dirt, the tie i have
    on the sanction is pushed to about 4mm below the crown, so i know I am getting full travel.
    However, I'm not sure if I am bottoming out. How obvious is it when you bottom.. will there be some sort of harsh metallic clang? I did up the compression and get the same result. I was thinking of increasing the oil level, but if anything I need to lower it to get the appropriate sag (~17% sag with all my weight on the pedals, ~30% with all my weight on the bars).

    Teemu,

    Tosi makea fillari! Sweet ride, I'm digging the component selection. What did the total weight end up being?

    Thanx Sus13!

    I haven't had a chance to weight it yet. It's supposed to be around 15.5 kg. Should work quite well in Helsinki/Espoo trails.

    E2, that is one bad mamma-jamma

    i have seen a number of custom paint jobs...so far my favorite was a bishop don magic juan - inspired green is for the money, gold is for the money titus. he's a famous pimp (check out the movie american pimp) also known as the guy that's along snoop in old school.

    however, e2 just changed the name of the game....

    that's insane. i thought my girlfriend painting flowers on her cruiser was sweet. i won't tell her that she just got beat.

    Bandit 350, I'm still laughing at the "don Juan" thing, it's funny you should mention him, I was actually looking through an old issue of DUB magazine last night and there is a pic. of his Caddy in there.........he's also in an old HBO special titled Pimps Up Hoes Down. Anyway thanks for the comment. E2 eric@competitivecyclist.com

    Yes, It's an All Mountain SL I picked up at a great price when Performance bought out Supergo. I originally had a NIxon Platinu, but after 4 months of riding it still felt "sticky" and I just couldn't get it dialed in right.

    I love the SL. It's smooth and plush.

    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    hey mtbkrx

    try running the GD backwards, it results in a much smoother cable run.
    You'll have to purchase some 4mm cable housing and about 15 minutes of your time. But its worth it IMO. Cheers! Lookin' good!
