    Nice pron collection! Looks like she's gonna be a sweet one! By the way, my buddy just scored the same color and it's tight when built up.

    There's only one cooler moment than the one just before the build, with all the new spanky parts layed out... the moment after the build is done!

    Congrats and nice spec!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    The excitement and anticipation is on par with the first Lego set I ever received as a child.

    Sorry about the bad quality of the pics
    The next ones,will be better (i promise )

    Quick question:
    I found out that a Fox DHX Coil or Vanilla R will fit in the frame (size small)
    So should i go for a stock DHX Coil or a "pushed" Vanilla R ?
    The DHX will be a little bit (50 dollars) cheaper,but i will have to get another spring for it.
    So in the end price will be allmost the same!

    Im thinking that i don't need all the adjustments of the DHX?

    Thomas, IMO, a Pushed R will have all the adjustments you need [rebound]. Everythingthing else will be preset for you internally. Also IMO, a stock dhx will not be as good as the Pushed vanilla.
    BTW, nice frame and kit. I can't wait to see it all built up.

    Just put in a good ride on my XCE (4 inch travel) with Pushed Vanilla RC. Lots of technical downhill, roots, logs, stunts, small jumps, rock gardens, stupid braking bumps... I have to say it's one of the nicest shocks I've ever ridden. I did not feel like I was missing out on more travel.

    +1 for Pushed Vanilla. I have a '08 VAN R Pushed for my '05 HL Spot with 5.5 rockers. It's better than RP3 and RP23 I had.
