    That doesn't look like a DHX Coil!

    I recently help a friend build up an 07 Preston and it went together pretty nice. He's been riding the crap out of it.

    Hello El Gordo, you have a great setup !! The dhx coil will be better than the air model for your 240lbs for sure.

    Can you post some other pics when you'll finish to mount your bike ?
    i'm about to buy a preston but i hesitate for the color and the brown one seems to be pretty cool. Thanks in advance.

    I got to get my Digi cam back left it at my buddies house when I picked up my new 79 Bronco I am stoked about thatbuild aswell.. I will post some pics as soon as I get it all together still waiting on some parts so hopefully be done by Monday havent been out riding in 2 weeks

    Yeah Devilyn the brown I thought was the way to go.. It has the transition logo in white which matches with the white azonic outlaws, and my white syncros stem, and white E-13 DRS.... Now I need some Syncros white Mag Pedals jsut dont have the 150 bucks right now....

    My new going to the mountain rig...
