    ... and if we just ... Looks good, but

    I'd be woried about the carbon monkey XC if you are using that thing to it's potential. Also, might want to get a 2.5 tire for the front. Otherwise, that thing is frigging beautiful!!

    Do you by chance have an accurate way to measure the head angle?

    That's cool. I bet Turner starts to offer that shock option since it makes a lot of sense to match with the long single crown forks nowadays. If I were to get one, I would set it up like that too....

    ugly

    A bike like that should have a bright red paint job on it and the cable routing makes no sense. You guys spend all weekend drinking cheap tequilla or what?

    Hahaha. Bright red WITH FLAMES would do the trick.

    Nothing says "I should have ordered a 5 spot" more than a carbon fiber handlebar on a "freeride" bike.

    While I agree that his specific choice of CF bar is inadequate for abusive riding, there are CF bars that are plenty strong for DH/FR.

    The only problem with CF bars is the ease of improper installation causing failure.

    A buddy of mine snapped an Easton aluminum a while back, so I've seen first hand that aluminum can fail catastrophically just like CF does in all of the horror stories floating around.

    Hey Nick.. DRS will be installed as soon as I recieve the right DRS system from MTNHigh. This is just a temp set-up because I was too excited to see the bike fully built...

    Hello DT, are you trying to say that there will be an offering for the Highline in RED? That would be awesome!!!

    Hello AndyN - A friend of mine knows how to measure this... as soon as I have a chance to go see him, I will post his measurements...

    Hi Alpenglow... The CF Monkey XC is an extra handlebar of mine & just temporary... I ordered a Monkey DH handlebar - just waiting for it to arrive ... I just got too excited to fit in the XC bar just to try the bike around the curbs... same goes with the tires... they will be changed to Nevegals or Nokians... I just threw those tires in there to ride her around the block. Even with these on, what a RIDE!!!

    hey cactuscorn... hehehe... yes the brakelines and cable routing is being fixed as we speak. and the DRS installed as well... any suggestions for the tires? I seem to cant find any Nevegals around here... I will re-post a pic of the "fixed" version of this bike...

    While we are at suggestions, how about suggesting the proper Highline cable routing...

    Green ano is a dud? Is it not a hot selling color? I love the green ano on my RFX! I can't wait til it fades over time and becomes more of a lime green.

    Why not save pic print out then run a rule from dropout to drop out, add in the angles of head and seat tube and measure with protractor.

    None. I'm happy to purchase one in "raw". Next thing you know peeps will be griping about chipped paint and scratched ano on a freeride bike.
    Taking it easy for all you sinners.
