    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.

    Yup I did that, tightened to the max. Just wondering if any of you bottlerocket owners have the same problem too...

    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:
