    Nice. Definitely need to throw a Pike on there to match the front up with the rest of the gnarly build. The TALAS should handle it.... but more is always better, right?

    How do you like those Fire FR's?

    I was thinking about using a set when I wanted a bit more meat for certain trails.

    Mighty 2.4s

    I love them. They grip anything. I might drop the rear down to a 2.1 Panaracer xc to reduce some drag

    Big Tires Rule!

    How did you get the FR Lowers in blue? I'm getting them, but I think they ano-clear or polished..... Besides that they allow wider tires, do you feel any difference in using the FR lowers?

    Thanks..

    I'm pretty sure all late model 05's get 06 rears...

    Well, I don't think that the ML can do real FR, but it's still a very sturdy XC frame, it just depends on what you want to use it for.

    ...and how much you weight, and how good you land.

    Landing is where the trick is at.

    We have a riding buddy who rides a Raleigh M80 HT with a RST 5" double crown and rides agressively. He even makes some 3 footers to flat on it.

    You'd think he goes thru frames and wheels like crazy... but the sucker lands so nicely, that he's frame is still going strong and he still uses cheapo hubs and they last long on him.

    Obviously, landing 6 footers on any given bike will takes its toll on it, but you can use a "lightweight" bike to do some crazy stuff if you're a "sweet lander".

    That said, I'm not encouraging anyone to jump a ML or doing anything above light FR/ Hard AM. That's what the Supermoto is made for and it's a very capable bike all-around too.
