    New question here. Hmmm

    What's happening under your seatpost collar ?

    It looks like some Kona-style clamp to stop the cables chaffing.

    Me likee; What is it and where'd you get it ?

    Very Swweet bike and a nice build done on it. My compliments to the owner, and the builder. Really nice parts selection too. If you ever travel up to the bay area drop me a line in the nor-cal board and I can show you some of the great trails up here in nor-cal.

    Oh yeah, wanted to mention that you should check for interferance between the seatpost clamp and the rocker arms under full compresison. With a small RFX frame the side of the rocker arm can hit the fat part of the clamp and your clamp looks like it might hit. Here is a pic of my RFX rockers at full compression. I had to take off the salsa clamp that was on there and run this thinner one.

    Maybe someone else can chime in that owns a small 5spot and let you know if you should worry about it. That bike looks way too nice to have a big gouge in the rocker arm from something that could be avoided.

    Then again judging by the build quality the person who setup your bike may have already checked for this.

    Just run the clamp with the lever facing forward.

    Very nice build, I will need to do something similar to the zipties around the seat collar.
    What camera did you use to take the photos? SLR? What lens? It might have to go on my shopping list.

    It's a Canon Digital Rebel XT with a Tamron 28-75mm lens.

    Shanedawg, we did check the clearance of the seatpost QR. No problems. Thanks for the heads-up though.

    hey, is that anodized?
    sure is nice.

    my experience with the seatpost clamp interference issue, small rfx, has been limited to the six inch rockers.
    anyone know if this happens with the small sixparfx?

    I made his day and posed for a pic with him.

    I have a question about the original pics. Did you photoshop them or are there some invisible wires holding the bike up?

    Great pics and lovely build....kinda reminds me of mine

    Great looking bike. That matte black finish makes that bike look pretty freaking cool. Nice kit too.

    And if I had to guess as to what's holding the bike up, there's a distortion behind the rear wheel in the first two pics starting just below the qr, either clear plastic of some sort or some photo shop work.

    Enjoy the new ride...

    happy trails...

    as a professional bike geek, this truly warms my heart! i cant tell ya how cool i think it is when folks buy bikes and really dig em. the single best part of my day is when someone comes back to tell me how much fun theyre havin with their new rig. for some reason its even sweeter when its a gal, maybe cuz the ratio of guys on bikes is so much greater. you gals enjoy yerselves and keep us (almost said abreast) updated on the new toys. now if i was only a turner dealer....
    No, I'm NOT back!

    Before I went to the TRT (totally rigid technology) rear end i would find my small 5-spot would hit the rockers on the seat post QR on full compression (like jumping off of things). Best way to find out is to totally compress the shock with all the air out (or the coil spring off) and check clearance. I fixed mine with a dremel tool and some carefull positioning.
