Swapped the Dhx A for the Dhx coil with a 700 lb spring....I'm a big lad! :-) What a difference to the ride, far more responsive on the climbs and on the descents I felt much more confident.....

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.

I've had this 6.6 for a few months now and it's going just great. Here are some pics I took just after I got it. It's unfinished as there's more fun to be had riding.

If you have the means, I highly recommend getting one.
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.

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).

here's photo's of mine, after anodizing was complete. The green is mine, the black and blue is T-Money's. What do you think? E2 firstname.lastname@example.org
Like we say in France that's " la touche finale"
I think that looks killer. You got anymore close ups of that ano green? Who did that for you? It looks beautiful.

man these 6.6's are tempting me to get one... must resist
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.
Andy @ Absolute Finish is the person to contact, they do great work, and Andy has super customer service, the # is 208-743-3170. Here is some more pics of the two bikes.

3 nice bikes
Here are my 2 Intense bikes and my son's Specialized.
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 email@example.com
Ride Hard, Ride Fast!!!
Nice 6.6...what's your set-up
Which fork is that...an All Mountain SL?

Awesome! With a wheelset built on some white Syncros DPS 32 rims... bling, bling!
Well, I didn't get the armorall on the tires but I like the white frame Nico
Everybody dies, but not everyone lives
small pearl white
Anybody got a small frame in pearl white? I'd love to see pics of those...

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!
