    Fabu!!!
    It's killing me these HLs are building only half a pound heavier than my RFX!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Then your RFX weighs almost the same as my Spot...
    Either gravity is broken in my area, or CactusCorn Units have expanded into measurements of weight.

    I'll check again after I put the lighter wheelset back on the Spot.

    that's really nice!

    would you mind measuring the b.b. height?

    Looks like a ton of fun, lets see some riding shots!

    jncarpenter; Bikezilla Castle... THANK YOU for the kind words...

    Castle, just measured the BB height, a safe round off figure would be 14.3 inches based on the measuring tape I used -> floor to middle of Saint crank... I hope this helps...

    And YES, I will post some ride shots real soon... as soon as the skies over here in the Philippines clears... its been raining due to a typhoon storm...

    God man, these bikes are turning out awesome. I love the ti spring on the highlines. It looks so badass. The grey cables look good too.

    I took my highline out for it's first trail ride last night and I gotta say that the 888rc2x climbs like crap, but hey the dirt jumps were at the top of the hill so what are you gonna do? If I keep doing rides like that I may have to think about doing the 7/7 for most of my riding and going to the 8in modes for whistler trips only.


    What type of riding are you planning on doing on your Highline?

    Hey shanedawg... the highline is not mine... but i do believe that the owner will be doing some freeriding and donwhill runs with this bike. its sort of a really nice "pedalable" and light 7" downhill bike...
