    Quite possibly one of the nicest looking frames I've seen

    I'm really happy how this combo came out, and can't wait to put the Rocco on it.

    Words nor pictures can do this frame justice...

    Butt ugly...........................................the background, that is. Just look at that wrinkled, highly reflective material. It ruined the shot...LOL! Well, it looks like SC's Trans Red still looks great. I have a '99 Bullit with a TR mainframe and polished swingarm. Beautiful rig you have there. Show us the completed setup when you're done.

    LOL! Man, you are certainly excited about the new bike. I'm happy for you. If you're excited now, wait 'til you ride it. I put 23 miles on mine over the last two days on some awesome trails. The Nomad is still impressing me.

    Screw you man... I grabbed the first thing that was white off the wall and flipped it around. Don't tell anybody it was an Intense banner. I put it back up afterward.

    Oh, you don't mean IB's POS, do you? He still needs a few items to make it Bangorworthy.

    True love... Nomad style!

    Ah, true love... I know how you feel. Had my new large silver Nomad a week (Fox Talas, DHX Air and mostly XT kit) and everyday it surprises me with a new cool thing it can do.

    Hucked a solid 6 foot ledge to a small sandy tranny yesterday and it was as easy as rolling out of bed! When I tell people how it can fast corner and out radius-turn my SuperLight, they look at me like I'm lying. I don't know how the bike does it with that whopping wheelbase and llllonnnggg chainstay, but trust me, it does!

    Perhaps...didn't one of you get a nomad? At any rate if the two of you get a chance, you should come down. The riding has been amazing all winter...

    That's horrible!

    Why in the name of humanity did you put that DH shock on that XC frame? Are you nuts? LOL!...Man, it looks like that shock was designed for that bike, doesn't it. Banz, that's a good looking rig. I'm looking forward to your ultra-anal review of that shock...and of course the new bike too. When you get it together will you be able to ride...seeing that you're up in the Great White? I'd invite you to ride with us this weekend where it will be in the 60's...if you're up for a short road trip.

    While I'm not a huge fan of primary colors I will say that that is a SICK combo. Nice ride. I'm eager to hear your thoughts on the Rocco/Ti combo. My Nomad should be up and running next week with any luck and I'm gonna take a long, hard look at the DHXAir I have on it. Whats the weight of the Ti Rocco, and who makes the spring?

    Ti Spring...

    The Ti Spring is made by Renton Coil Springs (RCS). Its about the only place with regular availability for Ti Springs for a variety of spring rates. Cane Creek doesn't even have any more Ti Springs for their CCDB, and won't for a while, if ever again, so they may become even more popular. Very light spring, by the way.
