    I can't do ANYTHING right!

    So I try to have a bike built based purely on what "I" think looks good so yeah, a bike built completely on aesthetics with MANY, if not most parts, selected based on how I thought it would look, regardless of weight.

    I completely failed and consider the final weight a weight weenie weight......Chad weighed the bike before shipping it (en route) and it came in at 34.25 Lbs What the hell? I was hoping for AT LEAST 35 lbs.....how pathetic can I be and no, I aint adding no stinkin gravity dropper to hit the 35 lb mark!

    On the bright side, bike is on its way and I may actually get out to ride it this weekend Chad sent some pics and I LOVE the way it turned out.

    THANKS FOR EVERYTHING CHAD !!!!!

    Look on the bright side...

    after adding your Gravity Dropper it'll be over 35 lbs

    Wouldn't building a bike involve, well, actually building a bike? If you pay someone to build a fence for you do you say you built the fence too? Just kidding of course, congratulations on finally getting a real bike!

    I have trouble seeing the pictures by the way.

    good point. i did not "build" the bike of course but simply ordered off of a menu for somebody else to build.

    chad sent some pics and from that stash, here are a couple.

    Do these brakes make my ass look big?

    Very nice. White is definately the theme lately. I like the nipple slip shots but really wanted some full frontal nudity.

    yeah...it must be the Ti in the M6 calipers

    i am really glad we did NOT go with the red rotor carriers....we both thought it would be too much red and God forbid it clashed with the I9

    I don't think there's a comma. It's, "Fo go the Chad!" although it does sound better with the comma.

    And I'm patiently waiting for my bits to finish my build, too. It is a winter build for next spring so I can theoretically wait, but I would so much love to have the complete bike sitting in my garage.

    Now maybe Chad can relax and "recover his sanity" after going through the trauma of dealing with you however the end result is looking excellent ! TIG.

    Fo:

    I don't think I have seen anyone as gifted at color coordinating bikes/components as you are. You should rent out your services to those of us who are more challenged. Sort of like queer eye for the straight cyclist (not that there is anything wrong with that).

    I pretty much throw whatever junk on the bike I can find in the tool box.

    Gorgeous, but....your frame is the wrong color. Doesn't El Terremoto come stock in white?.........I'm sure Sherwood could also match the red of the wheels, he's done it before you know.

    Hey Fo, the red in the grip/shifter doesn't really match the red of the brakes. See...

    i concur...no comma...i believe the kiwi language does not use punctuation at all!

    hey fo...i like the color combo...how about a picture of the whole bike? or is the rear not done yet?

    Well, I'll only charge you $454 per every pound I add to your bike. Yes, that's $1 per gram, the break point for a "good deal". Hell, I'm feeling generous. I'll offer you the soon-to-be-a-Homer bro deal of $350 per pound.

    All you have to ask yourself is, "how much do I wanna gain?"

    I think Squeak should get his Bruja PC'd to match the Vette. It will look better there riding around on the roof.

    no joke those are some nice ******* pictures fo
    would you stop picking out and buying such nice parts, people are going to start to think you actually build them
    but really... wow. cant wait for the real pictures
    and the bike will easily gain 1/2lb in muck, but you could just add a lizardskin or something else too

    Running the steerer tube that long probably gets you atleast another 1/2 of travel too!

    Nice color coordinating FO.

    thanks man.

    speaking of brakes, the lever area turned out nice too......I promised I would not say (in fear of people thinking chad too may be "color coordination" equipped shall i say) but near the end i simply mentioned 3 brakes i would be happy with so we could finish, just mentioning Hopes generally to Chad.........and within hours Chad emailed back to say "hey man....you got your brakes! M6 front, M4 rear...red bore caps and red master cylinder caps....but did not want to get rotor carriers cause i was worried the red may be too much and clash with the I9 red"......LOL. Classic! That is exactly what I would have wanted him to do....sorry Chad, you too may be "cursed"

    I'm still not feeling those Deity bars and stem. Maybe if I saw a full shot of the bike. I think the transition from white/red wheels moving up towards black/red would have worked better.

    The bike turned out very nice! (The resale value will never be higher.)

    As for the weight problem:

    I have a couple of friends here in the OC that specialize in the secret addition of weight to 6 Pack/RFX bikes. You see they had a friend that loved to race his 6 Pack to the top of the hill. They found that by adding buck shot inside the handlebars and swapping out his light weight tubes for tuffies, that their friend's climbing pace became much more relaxed.

    Enjoy your new ride.

    running DHX Coil even...I blame I9 to some extent; their wheelsets end up being pretty light. I even ran a 10mm Rear Hadley axle....though I guess the thru axle cant be that much heavier than a standard qr

    Those grips would look a ton better if he didn't have to use half of them to shift.

    Besides, don't the xo/x9 triggers match better?

    X9 triggers have too much silver, as does the rear der which is why i went with X7 on both ends since it is only black......plus, X7 allows me to still call the bike a "budget" RFX. But yeah, X0 twist shifters would have been better....i completely forgot to change that part from the original budget build spec Chad sent me...no big deal, the X7 looks fine and I would not have changed the rear der anyway since like I said, all black and the 07 was an improvement there anyway

    i just compared the '06 wtb dual duty wheelset (which is quite close to my '07 set) to the i9 enduros:

    wtb: 2125g
    i9 : 1840g
    weight savings: 275g

    whats that, close to 3/4lbs? add to it the basic lack of negitive long term use comments, impressive engagement and added stiffness on the i9's and im gettin more and more interested. im startin to see a sub 32lb rfx here that wont fold under me. be gone you "xc lite fr rigs are junk" nay sayers!

    The gripshift and shorty lock on grips work very nicely, got them on both my MB's, and I wear XL size gloves so there's no shortage of hand room. The XO gripshifts are the best I've used, lighter and smoother action than the lower end gripshifts, you might want to further blow your "budget" build and give them a try Fo.

    i have had the X0 grips on 2 bike and loved em so i will know quickly if there is a tangible performance difference.....i doubt there will be but if so, will in fact change to X0.

    Pretty scary how Doggedly Bothersome and Faux are more obsessed with their Turners than the rest of us.

    I gotta say that thing is going to be the most outrageously gorgeous scooter ever. If I could go back and edit the name of my winter camo thread to "mearly a shadow of Fo," I would.

    Congrats Fo!!!!!!!!!

    Nice budget build.... ..Chad was giving me the Lowdown of your build for the last month, making me swear secrecy. ......Bugger sent me pics last night, just to get my mind goin over what he could do for my next "budget" build.... ..

    Congrats........I told him he needs to etch/engrave a barn emblem on your bike, just cause the troubles he went thru on that build, that thing better show his badge forever more.

    I'm still trying to figure out if this whole "Fo gets an RFX and pimps it out" thing is just an elaborate hoax. Nobody really DOES this, right?

    Yo Fo - how about a full bike shot off the "budget build"? You should have went ano green on the frame and the rotors and such - then you could call it Comet or Cupid or Donner or Blitzen. Then you could hang some tinsel and some bulbs from it and off course some jingle bears to warn the wildlife that you're coming through.

    At this point I'd bet Chad has already made an appointment for Fo at his local Tattoo parlor...

    No good Sux !

    Wellll.... I dunno about this new bike Fo... it looks kinda like a pimp-mobile to me from what i've seen so far...and them little miniature wheels are just a waste of time.

    I'll give this one .... three months. Then you'll be selling it, b'coz those lil wheels will be too slooooow.

    Maybe that's what you should be calling it ... the "Fodribble Pimp-Mobile".

    Not bad for a "Budget RFX". Sorry to hear about the wieght. Maybe some lead weight under the seat like the kind they stick on car rims. I don't even want to see the full monty until it's at least 35.5
    Just because everyone says your wrong, it doesn't make you right. But it is a pretty good indication.

    Pretty cool. I actually like the white rims and fork lowers, and I've always liked the older white pack frames.
    But, those white stems and bars just seem.....gay. Especially when the stem says "gaitey" right on the front of it....maybe it's just me, though.

    Probably looks better when you can see the entire ensemble, though.
    Will definitly look better with a thick coat of dirt, fer sure!

    Hope those budget X7's work out fer ya too....

    I'll be dammed...

    ....If ANYONE but me would have taken my RFX for its first ride. Maybe a parking lot test ride so the wrench could make sure everthing squishes right. But where those shots where taken?!!? NFW!

    That is one incredibly co-oordinated bike, man. Nice freaking selection. BUT it does remind me of those late 80's Mustang GT's...the white one's w/ the red pinstripe and red leather interior--you 30+ crowd know what I'm talkin' bout.

    Sorry, jealous rage, ignore. I wants I-9's, too!

    thanks man....one can never look to gay by the way in SoCal...just ask aqua i will be borrowing his skort for the maiden voyage.

    yeah, the entire bike shot looks great for sure. take it from Queer Eye for the Straight MTBer, never judge a bike by how a single part looks.

    assuming somebody is at the house when FedEx arrives, i will have pics tonight.

    Sho Fizzle,

    I have a bunch of GripShift length ODI lock-on grips, I think 2 pairs each of Ruffian and Yeti Hardcore. They're left over from my old twist shifter days. I'd send them to you for the price of postage. PM me if you're interested in using anything remotely 2d hand on that piece of garish jewelry you are calling a mountain bike.

    On the bike weight, something is seriously limpwristed in that build. My stem and bar are worlds lighter than yours (Answer ProTaper 27x2 bar, Easton Havoc 85mm stem), and my medium 6-Pack weighs 35.5 lbs. It's probably my very pedestrian wheels, which cannot hold a candle to those ridiculous whorehouse contraptions you are sporting on that thing that we all know will never see real usage.

    Chad's got some nice scenery down around his place. The mountain goats are pretty plentiful in the rocky hills that surround the Sleeping Child Creek road where he's got his shop.

    that is a very kind offer "The Chan". I would be honored to grace my "King of All Gay Homers" RFX with your used equipment. It may even motivate me to take the bike off of fireroads at some point.

    And as for the weight, I asked Chad twice....either something is wrong with his scale or some parts are lighter than I thought. The wheels are under 1900 grams but still.

    no doubt Winston....

    it was an oversight. Due to the multiple times I changed the parts spec the Stinger got lost in the shuffle and did not end up on the bike. With as much grief as I gave Chad with changing parts so many time I am surprised I do not mess up more things

    Will be getting one shortly

    Yeah, after seeing the limited pics I was trying to fiqure out the 3lb diff between yours and mine, I can see a pound in the fork/components, but 2lbs in the wheels! I know my cheapo Sun Ringle wheels are tanks but that would put them at 2800g!! I really want to weigh them now

    Hasn't that underweight pimpmobile showed up yet? I think your fedex man has himself some new sportin' goods! I hope he likes your color scheme.

    Feel bad for me; I'm not working today, and I'm 60 minutes away from riding my real, 38 pound RFX for the rest of the day.

    That sucks!
    Call em and see if you can drop by the facility on your way home from work!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    For most people this SNAFU would severely alter the weekend's plans.

    In your case.....no big deal

    No chainguide?!!!

    Please review and correct this immediately.
    What still no full piccs

    What no chain guide, you can't have an RFX and not go through the half day experience of remodling a chain guide to fit he RFX plus this will undoubtledly bring yr RFX into true Homer status of 35lbs+

    Mine is a light 37Lbs and Im loving it yeaha

    Full pics Full pics Full pics

    I think Ive almost had as much Homer retardation waiting to see yours finished as I had from my own

    must sell. no particular reason, just need to sell it. its in my disturbed nature.
    absolutely beautiful bike! looks kinda like haley berry in a candy striper outfit.
    no rediculous offer will be refused.
