    When dreams come true..... ( A Switchblade dream I mean )

    Well, I finally get a dream, few weeks ago I purchased the frame from a guy in the USA ( Doh, I forgot to say that Im from Spain ), and with a lot of parts standing on my garage and some new ones, here is the result:

    I have just a pair of questions, the first owner told me that it was a custom frame ( rear end anodized, 5.7 inches of travel, etc... ) but there is no serial number in the frame, ( just look the picture of the bb case ); theres only a couple of words ( R and B ), anyone knows the meaning of this ?

    The other question is how to put the shock to get the full 5.7 inches of travel ?

    In a couple of days, Ill put all the settings in the Set-Up database.

    Many thanks.

    Felicidades, majo!!

    That Blade looks gorgeous all anodized!! I've been thinking on anodize the rear triangle of my Blade too.

    I pretty much relate to you for several reasons. I also got an old Switchblade frame. I also live overseas (Mexico) and also built her with the remains of another bike. And also, it was my dream to have a high end bike and fortunately I ended up with (arguably) one of the best trailbikes ever made.

    I can't help with the set-up unfortunately, but someone will come out to help. Just be patient. I could say that you have to use the mounting hole below the seatmast, that it's closer to the edge of the plate.

    Again, felicidades!!!
    Un abrazo desde Mexico!!
