    I will say, Redhit's does look P.I.M.P.

    I was really indecisive on the green vs black, but I'll be riding with SlayerRulz and he has a green one already.... Thought aboot raw aluminum too....

    yeah theres no questioning that Redhits is the nuts...i just like the idea of having a (somewhat i guess...knowing how many bottlerockets are out there nowadays) unique ride.
    hence the totem on mine

    nice ride exvitermini!
    again...nothing against the actual color...i just see a lot of them. ive seen a few in person and so far none of the pics of the green ones have done the things justice. they look so much nicer in person.

    I went with the green because

    1. I already have one all black bike, and I wanted to mix it up a little.
    2. The only other BR in my area is a raw (as far as I know), so it's unique, at least for here.


    I'm going up to the shop and picking it up this evening.

    If its tight, Fox makes steel adapters (the stock ones are aluminum). Call up transition and they can get you some and i think that'll fix your problem

    The bushings on some of the Fox shocks were a bit off spec, and a little too large inner diameter. Some DHX Coils and Airs both experienced this...

    Got the frame yesterday. Just finished (sort of) building 'er up. Still waiting on the shock, obviously, and I need to go pick up some headset spacers. Other than that, I'm ready to roll. I need to shorten the rear hose, but that can wait. DHX coil will be here Friday.


    OK, now for the good stuff:

    Hi bro! Super nice bike! Btw what is the travel of your fork in the pics. Look like 100 or 120mm. Dose it feel nice running on shorter travel? Cheers!

    Check the Turner forum thread titled "Don't be a dumbass (like me)".

    I'm going to hit Tiger with CBx at 5pm so I can learn the "normal" route for taking my wife on...

    Fyi

    165#'s with gear here. Running a 350# spring on POS swinger 4-way. I haven't checked the sag since the 2008 DHX coil will be in next week, but may need to go up to 400#.

    Unless I've been fed a complete line of BS, the '08's are shipping now. Yes, it's a new model internally. http://www.bikemag.com/features/onli...ew/index1.html

    Basically get's an updated Pro-pedal range.

    I wish they could have done with the coil like they did with the air.

    Propedal on/off, no in between.

    I heard late June.


    Anyway, I got a DHX today from dogonfr. I'll run it until the Roco shows up.

    I weigh 145#, and have a 400# spring, per Kevin's recomendation. I've only got one ride on it so far, and have been too lazy/ busy riding to check sag, but it feels pretty good.

    400# for your weight? Thats good to know. I'm hoping to get an opportunity to meet the Transition guys and have them dial the bike in for me since I know where they hang.

    After 3 rides, heavy climbing on all, the Roco makes more and more sense. I'm just too impatient to wait. We'll see how the DHX turns out.

    I will note that even though the Swinger's almost impossible to work with, I've had little trouble hanging with even the toughest mountain goats on the trail. The Talas is definitely the cat's meow for the BR.

    Well, I don't know about that. I don't think it's that easy, unless you went with the DHXa. The only thing I can get out of the limited info is the transition between adjustments is quicker and smoother.
