    Super sick bike. Not much else to say.


    Right after I built it up, before some changes.


    Raced DH with it setup like that.

    It's got Deity bars now. And I'm thinking about decent 26s for it.

    how much did you order yours for turboinferno? this is a used one but.... damn cheap, considering this is not a cheaply constructed aluminum frame...

    I've seen them go on ebay new for just a couple bucks more. This guy keeps listing batches of 5 of them.

    I got mine new for less than that shipped.

    I only did that to race DH. To slack it out a bit and help the front end get over things a little better. Somebody told me it was fast and flowy, which is why I took the hardtail. They're full of sh!t.

    Usually I run dual 24s. I had a set of 26" Mavic X321s (I think). I put 5 or 6 flatspots/dents in the rear rim the first ride, and I run more than enough tire pressure and I made sure to prestretch and tension the spokes evenly.

    I was going to get a set of Atomlab Trailpimps, but I didn't act fast enough, and the offer passed. Same thing with my DH rig...

    I just picked a brand new frame for 200 and will be stripping off the parts from my DK Xenia (<- Xenia frame = unbreakable, but crap) in the next two weeks. I'll post some pics up then.

    Just cut it down a couple inches (make sure to measure), and take of a couple spacers.
  • 09-23-2006
    turboinferno83
    yeah,I thought of that.Its just taking a hacksaw to your forks seemed a little of :nono: situation,but you gotta do what you gotta do I guess.

    Thanks for the input nightfall. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    No Hacksaw, get a pipe cutter, it will make a perfect cut, you can gran one for about $9 at Lowes or Home Depot...
  • 09-23-2006

    aaaaahhhh,yes.That is a great idea! Thanks :thumbsup:

    your shop has a specail tool for cutting the steerer tube. it locks on and you use a hack saw for a evan cut then you file it down. i would shorten that and get a shorter stem( bontrager earl maybe)
  • 10-05-2006
    americanethics
    looks promising, but you've still got a lot of work ahead of you imo. Switch out the stem, cranks and pedals for starters.
  • 10-05-2006

    omg...get a shorter stem and cut that steering tube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks...

    My hand was sort of forced. I got a great deal on the wheels new, but then I thought the bike looked unfinished with the yellow graphic wheels, so I thought I'd blend it a little with grips and a seat........... My only other option was peeling the stickers off the wheels I guess
  • 09-29-2007

    well its been awhile.Since I started this whole thing yet I still havent posted my bike.Here is yet another nasty photo i took.Im running converted SS,26",cut down crowbars.I never put the chain guard on but wish I had as I keeep tearing myself up when I land on the teeth.....ok stay tuned as Im waiting to recover my pass for image hosting......ill post soon

    Here's my Addict on 24's:



    I just put her together last night, and I'm working out the kinks right now. She's pieced together w/ a bunch of parts that I had on my Kona Scrap, but from the little 30 minute ride I was able to get in, she feels as good as a high-priced call girl...

    Can't wait for the rain to end and for it to warm up a bit around here.

    Hey, why don't you look at the date that was posted? :rolleyes: The spec has changed quite a bit since... Also notice that I had said I am looking for 26s for it... That was in 2006...

    turboinferno,the frame and most of the build are looking good but you need to get rid of the pedal refelctors asap.

    This one was put together in January for a little local shredder. Pretty sick spec.

    Picture is a bit dated. Got a 5 inch Hayes rear rotor. Got a Syntace Superforce stem. Got a 25.4 Deity bar and Lifesaver barends - Thanks Eric.

    New tires and pedals are on the list. Thinking of Deity pedals when they hit. Or going with Wah-Wah or MG1. Maybe grab the 25.4 Fantom stem when it releases.

    Its amazing what you'll find on www.google.com try searching addict frame, addict bikes, etc, etc. Just my guess but you might find something on google:madman:
