    Thanks Larry..rfx pics

    Thanks for the upgrades Larry.
    I already have a set of WTB DH wheels, and I wanted a set of lighter wheels for everyday trail riding. Larry built up a nice set for me...hadleys w/ 819s (red, silver, blue nipples to go with my King HS)

    THe 66sl is also from Larry @ MHC. Very stoked with this fork so far. Gets better every ride. Definatley running lower pressures than the manual suggests.

    Thanks again Larry. Bike is pretty much dialed to my dream spec. Enjoy!

    Yo G, how's the Avalanche treating you? If Push doesn't come thru pretty soon with their DHX kits, I might have to sport a Chubbie.....

    Sweet ride, congrats!


    Did you by chance remove the Bomber sticker from your fork because it was crooked?

    My 66 got here the other day and that Bomber sticker is on there so crooked it's comical, but in a not so funny way.

    thanks for the compliments

    A few answers:

    " I may have to try one of those forks"
    The fork is great. I know you have a 36 Vanilla....that was my other choice. The only selling factor over the Vanilla for me was the adjustable travel. Right now I have it set at just over 6 inches. When I put on the DH wheels it will go up to 170mm. I am sure both are great forks, the 66 has great adjustments, I am blown away it is an air fork..with that said, I doubt you are missing much if anything, both seem really sweet.

    El C & Shaheeb,
    The Avy is sweet. I couldn't justify dropping the coin on a new one......but Skullcrack was letting his go, and excepted an offer i couldn't refuse. This thing is sweet. Super plush, and controled. I came off a Romic, and this thing blows it away. I wouldn't say bottomless...after all it is only 6" we are talking about, but I couldn't amagine a better set up or the RFX. Amazingly it climbs way better than the Romic as well. Climbing the rear just hooks up with very little bob. Another plus....with the Ti spring it is lighter than the DHX Coil. I would highly recommend. Their CS seems really good also. I had a few ? and they picked up the phone both times, were super friendly, and excited to talk about their product.

    ANDY
    The BOMBER stickers were on straight...I just like the stealth look. Funny your stickers were so misaligned. On that note, the same guy must have assembled my fork because one of the top cops was cross threaded and I had to ruin the threads to get it out...thats another story.

    Hope that answered some questions...

    Shaheeb check your PMs..sorry i was slacking...Aren't those 5" rockers killer. I wish they had the same effect on the new RFXs
