    Anyone have a 4x?

    Got a craving to build one of those older 2007/2008 4x models. Anyone have a frame or know of one available? Would love a green one, but I can always get it redone if its another color. Thanks for any help, Bryan

    If you can find Flux or Sultan rockers and pop them on a 5 Spot with Saar's "HAS" angleset 1.5deg cups, you'll have something close:

    Otherwise, I've seen a 4x in the classifieds by gregmazo:

    Thanks! That frame's no longer available but that's what I'm looking for. DT said that the 4c frames had the pivot rolled forward to decrease the chain stay length. I also think it used the 6.5" shock and not the normal 5 Spots' 7.5" shock I'll keep looking and my fingers crossed

    Yes the cs are pretty short at sub 16", and it takes a 6.5x1.5 shock. The long version is better for 6' and up, at 5'10+ I feel at home on my short 4x.
    Very fun little bikes, but tough to find as so few were made.
