    well, you could always start drinking excessively, to make the time congeal into one glop - then monday will already have been here!

    J'espere que tu recevras ton cadre avant qu'il ne neige trop sur Les Gets, Morzine ou Avoriaz. L'attente vaut le coup...

    (I hope that you will receive your frame before it snows in Les gets, Morzine or Avoriaz. It's worth waiting...

    If european customs will not be thaaaat slow as they are you could probably do some nice riding this weekend...
    But hold on ,at the next WE your time will come.
    Do not forget to post some pix of your new ride.
    You ordered a SixPack, right?
    Here is my idea of what I will do tomorrow.

    hiya !!!

    yes the frame arrived @ the french turner dealer


    the frame is so beautyfull ... orange color is awesome

    for the moment i'm @ work ... but i'll go back to my home earlier today
    to install all the items on it
    king headset
    thomson stem
    i'm sooooo happyyyyy

    but (yes... ) But the frame arrived with a dhx 5.0 instead of the dhx air option i wanted :-/

    so my bike would not be as light as i planed !

    and the spring rate may not be the right for me ...
    what are your weight and your spring rate on a dhx 5 + 6 pack ????


    tonght... i hope ... FIRST PICS

    I am 75 kilo with stuff and run a 600lbs spring with 1/2 turn of preload,110psi in the boostvalve,8 clicks of ProPedal,bottom out a half turn out and do not know how much rebound in the moment but that should be easy to adjust.
    I am more of the aggressive kind of rider.No couching over the trails and so I feel happier with the stiffer 600lbs spring.Many will suggest using a 550lbs wich works at my weight too but needs a bit to much preload for my taste.In the end it is a personal thing...
    This springcalculator worked good for me.
    Edit: The SixPack has a 3:1 leverage ratio!

    Wow,that looks great so far!
    The orange color is the bomb , much nicer and more friendly than my gunmetal grey.
    Where did you get that cool toptube lettering? Made yourself?
