Looks hawt Joel...we should have done a pike urban camo as well Is that Marshal W's old frame?
Great looking Spot. Did you consider a solid-axle rear? This spot is worthy.
If my SPot dosen't sell this time for the minimum then may look at doing this as a project sometime, I dig it that is just fricken awesome dude, congrats
Very versatile, they blend in with trees too.

Yep. I got a 10mm thru axle conversion for the Hadley and put it on a week or so ago.

This is the before shot:
Any rides/comments on the PUSHed Pike?
Bike looks great.
Nice camo color. Great choice for poaching super secret front range trails.
How's your shoulder?
Exactly. With all these super secret rides that only 3/4 of Boulder knows about, I felt being stealth was important...

Too early yet. I had the PIKE rebuilt with the latest factory fork system (I had been on a prototype version) around December but then got hurt after only a couple rides on it. In the few rides I had on it before getting hurt, I noticed improvement in two areas: small bump and the last 1/4 of the travel. Small bumps get soaked up better and it seems to have a nicer, ramp up on the end of the travel. I used to bottom mine out some running (I run pretty low pressures for my weight), but with the PUSH factory kit it seemed to use 98% of the travel but not bottom out.

Great job, jdub. Sweet bike.
