    There's a thread in the DH forum about Bottle Rocket weights. Run a search.

    FINALLY!!

    Holy $hit, she's fun! Just got back from popping her cherry, this thing pedals!

    Built her up as a short travel DH racer for here. Geo is spot on. The bigbike is too big for most courses here, so this should be a nice little weapon...
    She likes to flow, and begs to be airborne.

    Build:

    -Transition Bottlerocket, large and raw
    -DHX 5 Air
    -888 SL ATA
    -Cane Creek XXC
    -Thomson stem, BMX 50mm x 22.2mm
    -Ti bar, custom straight gauge 22.2
    -XT rapidfire, 8 sp
    -Hope Moto V2
    -Oury lock-ons, Dangerboy caps
    -Thomson seatpost, 30.0 x 410
    -Ti Flight TransAm
    -Saint cranks, 170mm
    -e13 smashy
    -e13 DRS
    -26/36 Raceface rings
    -X9 front der.
    -Syncros Mental stainless, custom pins
    -Hope Bulbs/Mavic EX729s/Sapim Races, 12mm rear
    -Atomlab 12/10mm axle
    -Tioga White Tiger 2.5 tires
    -DuraAce SS rear der.
    -XT 11-30 8sp
    -KMC X8

    To be changed:
    -Will put on Crank Bros Mallets for clippy goodness when racing.
    -And am in the midst of customising a Saint M801 (standard rise!) rear der. to work with my 12mm x 135 hub and axle. Will replace the D/Ace soon as it's done. Want something that'll take a monster beating.
    -Will put a burlier saddle on soon. This one was kicking around... Don't expect it to last long, but if it does it does.

    How tall are you and how much seatpost is exposed when you have full leg extension if you don't mind me asking? Thanks

    6'1", about 24 cm exposed for extension. Not too bad.

    The large has the "shark fin" but the medium and small do not.

    How does the bike feel with the 888 on? I am thinking of switching to a DC too (Boxxer Ride) for hucks. How does the 7" in front and the 5.5" behind feel? Unbalanced?

    Feels nice!
    Matching travel length isn't so important; important is making sure front and rear feel and act similar to each other. Spend the time to get them dialed, and you're set.

    Hmm...Wish people here in Singapore had the same thinking. I got isulted and mocked at when I said I wanted to put a Boxxer on the BR. I think I will go ahead and do it. Only thing is now I dunno if it should be a 2005 or 2006 version. Thanks for your reply.

    yeah! with the boxxer the bottlerocket looks like a killer mini-dh machine. Example:

    Hey Karupshun, here you go:

    Here is my Bottle Rocket.
    I thought the pink was fun so I went for it.
    It's spec'ed with an 06 Manitou Travis 150 (because it's basically the same as the 07, but cheaper). Manitou Swinger 4x, Avid Juicy 7's w/ pink danger boy levers, TBC 36mm wheel set, Gap cranks with an MRP guide, x9 read derailleur and shifter, and Kenda Nevegal rubber and a few other odds and ends.

    Is the bottom bracket kinda low on those bottlerockets or is it just a figment of my imagination?
