    Blue is the new Gold

    BEHOLD! The 2010 DW RFX! Orrrrrr.... as close as any of us will ever get to one.



    Fully custom top to bottom, lots of high tech prototype stuff that you guys wouldn't really understand. You know how we do...



    Coil Lyric U-Turn, StanFlows rollin' on EYE9's, blah, blah, blah.



    Yer ma boy Blue!



    Now if somebody could tell me who bought all the Avid 185 post mount adapters in the greater Los Angeles area, I could actually ride this hooker.

    Total build: 26.12 lbs.

    Custom Blue Steel links are 1.02 lbs lighter than aluminum links. Each.

    26 pounds with a Lyric coil? How is my non-DW Spot over 4 pounds heavier with a air Pike?

    I like your cable setup. Especially for the KS seatpost. I also built up an RFX-y spot yesterday and we sctratched our head how to set up the seatpost cable. 5" seatpost travel means a lot of loose cable. 26.12lbs though? using helium in the tires?

    Oh, I thought the links were custom Unobtainium and that Blue Steel was a potential DWL persona.

    Nice lookin horse BTW.

    I find that had to believe as well. It looks nice, though.

    I think the bike is beautiful but I have to admit, the 26lbs and change number throws me. Being an avowed WW with my Sultan I know what it takes to get to that weight and you definitely aren't there. If the custom rockers weigh that much less...I want some. In gold. Proof of scale pics please. Like this.

    Very nice DB. I have the Fox Vanilla on my DW Spot and it doesn't match the plushness of the rear. Let us know how the Lyric works out for you particularly in the fast rocky stuff. Ride on Blue.

    Noticed your frame has an added bracket welded on the bottom of the seat tube by the zerk fitting. Did you have to send it back for the brace to be added? I have seen in another thread new red frame that has a brace welded in the same spot but it is solid. I noticed yours is open. I have been watching mine for breakage hoping it does not fail.
    On another note...you gotta show pics of the scale. I have a medium and it is built similar at 29.12 lbs...thanks for any help on the welded brace issue- nice build...

    take a look at this red one down at the bottom of the shock. the brace is solid. maybe they are different because of frame size? the red looks smaller than the grey bike.

    ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. it's a 2012 model; that's why it weighs three pounds less than it could possibly weigh.
    Sorry DB, I think you need to get your scale calibrated.
