    It's a large, and I am racing this weekend.

    What do you mean when the Lyric breaks again? It hasn't worked right since I got it back from being "fixed."

    Most of them came from my RFX. I got the wheels, cranks, chainguide, and front der. with the frame.

    Nice improvement

    The Path got their shipment of large (19) 6Points in yesterday. They got busy building them at the end of the day.

    One nice improvement I noticed was a guide for the rear derailleur housing as it passes by the bottom bracket. I wish I would have had my camera with me, but you no longer need to zip tie the housing to the upright bar on the rear triangle. (As was the case on the 05 7Point series to avoid damage from the chain and/or rings.)

    Nice little improvement. (2 year cycle in full effect.)

    100 percent agree. I think that little noodle for the cable is one of the nicest features on the frame. I also really like the design of the new rocker arms on all the 07 bikes. The way they contour the frame is so sweet.

    I also really like the attention to the little details and the lower link cable guide/stop is also one of the first things I noticed!!

    Still have a bit of work to do (new rear brake line, cut steerer, der. cables, etc). I'll probably end up switching to a coil shock, but for now does anyone have a recommendation for where to start with the shock pressures? I'm around 170lb with gear.

    Skull, that thing is Psick. congrats

    Adding a little action to the 6Point pics thread.

    12 year old Paulina in her first DH race @ Fontucky aboard a 6Point:

    The combination of quick feet, determination and the DW-Link earned her 2nd place:


    Congrats Paulina. I hear she will be back for more.

    Well here is my 6point. A lowly 6point4, but i have taken a few bits off my old beast to personalize it. Yes i know everyone hates Shermans, but mine has been wonderful & they were better than the forks it came with. I have yet to give her a good run & tickle the setup. But the few first rides have been nothing short of wicked. Light but solid, quick & nimble.

    Lovin it, Thanks IH

    I think the dual crown fork voids the warranty on the 6Point.

    Can someone from IH confirm the dual crown-warranty issue. I can't find it anywhere on the site or in the box that my bike came with.

    Also can some one school me in, the whole leverage dual vs single crown issue.
    The bike came with a 160mm SC with a 550mm axel to crown. i have added a 170mm Sherman with a 535mm axel to crown. I know that there is added strength with the top crown, but can some one tell me why a short DC fork is worse than the longer SC.

    Cheers
    D

    I'm 5'11" and that's a 19" frame. It feels right to me. I certainly wouldn't want a bigger frame, even if they made one.

    Thanks.

    There must be something in the Socal water. Four of my Nomad riding friends run 170/180mm forks as well.
