    Cool, I can't wait to finish my shadow!!!! What is your gearing combo? 32T-16t? How do you like the Tora so far? And do you have the weight?

    32-18 but i need to make it a 16. ...look close at the rear cog. ...there are 3 of them. a 16 and 18 and an 11. its so i wouldnt loose them when i went to find them, and if i need to change the gear for whatever reason, i can just take the cassette wrench out of my pack and have at it.


    ...the tensioner is on the way

    the tora is nice. a bit heavy but i weigh 205 w/no gear so it doesnt really matter. ...and i think i need the xl spring. whatever is in there is nice for around town, but when i take it offroad, i want to know its not going to blow out the bottom.


    its lighter than my rockhopper pro and thats 25lbs and change. this thing is a rocket!

    Looks like I'll need to upgrade the spring as well then. I'm 200 wet and ride mostly dirt.

    I'm going 32/16 with a halflink hoping I can skip on the tensioner.

    It looks great! Keep posting pics of your progress, I'll post mine as soon as I can.
