    Are you breaking the pivots? Interestingly I broke my front triangle, got it switched for an RFX, the original horst link rear end is still going strong, although it did get a pivot change.

    I would strengthen the pivots with Ti bolts. Al could be quite workable as well.

    Depleted uranium shafts would be the best bet. Radiating electrons make it not only strong, but self lubricating, too!

    Bolt on rear hub would be about your only option for providing more strength. I am not sure how much more stiffness you would notice. I think it would be worth it, unless you need to take your wheel of frequently.

    What problem are you trying to solve? Is the 6 Pack rear too flexy? Are you breaking the pivots? Is all the "DWL uber-stiff" hoopla got you thinking that the old frames, previously heralded as uber-stiff, are now uber-noodly?

    No problem to solve, yet you are asking us for a solution?
    The 6 pack is only so stiff. It is not a DH machine. May I suggest that rather than worry about it for three weeks, you just forget about it and just ride?

    I think he's still trying to decide between a chubbie and a dhs. By the time he gets either one of them, he'll have his Brookyln back, and he'll be asking us about lightening up his 6 pack.

    C'mon Chris, I wasn't being all that mean. I tried to help out this guy in his avy threads. He isn't easy to help.
    5 spot; I'm trying to decide on a color. Perhaps I should start a "Help bling out my spot " thread.
    BTW, the Pike got the full treatment from Darren.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Yo, Rennie!

    OK, crankypants, is the snow getting to you up there in the mountains? It was just a question from an earnest information seeker.

    Man, some of you guys are a wee bit too sensitive today. Around here, we can be serious, and have fun too. I've tried to help this guy in his other threads, now he gets a little of the fun stuff.
    Jeez. Later.

    If one of my friends wanted more stiff in the rear I would worry......

    Renny, looking forwad to seeing the Spot painted and built up - I am sure you'll love the Pike. I think you should look at painting the frame a burnt orange or mango.
