    OK, now you didn't use a sharpie to anodize those rockers, black, did you?

    Actually that's a place near me that I've been meaning to photograph. Unfortunately it was midday when I got the new wheels bolted on AND it was 105 degrees, so I didn't get much worthwhile; really just wanted get something to share the stoke of the latest (FINAL) build.

    That 2nd pic rocks! I like the krylon job on the pRockers.

    105* wow... you must have been the only thing alive out there.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Deadbolt, nice photos, particularly the second one. Hey, I noticed that you are running a Galfer rotor up front. Are these Formula specific? Or will the Galfer rotors from my Juicys work?

    I think Galfer only makes one style of rotor.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I'm glad you guys like the second pic. I love the look of pictures taken with those old Holga and Diana film cameras; I set this shot up with that look in mind.

    Edit: I misread your question. It's just a standard 8" Galfer rotor. For a post-mount fork you can use any 8" post-mount adapter; I used a Hayes.

    Without a doubt the single best investment in the bike. Having 'on the fly' adjustable HA makes for a much more versatile ride. It's amazing how much difference 1.5 degrees either way can make. At twice the cost, as one would hope, it's considerably more supple than the Pike and much more tunable. You'll be stoked...

    Weight?

    My build will be similar but with heavier wheels and a coil shock.
    Nothing to see here.

    The matched-color PC rear triangle is just ... HAWT!!!

    Makes me wonder when I'll scratch the ano on my Flux badly enough to warrant a trip to the PC shop.
