    I want a nemesis steel frame!

    Of course, I also want rick's frame too . ..

    Got damn it! I'm going to hurt myself talking two years into the future like this!

    Anyway, nice ride. What year is that fork? Speaking of it, I think you're the only person on the planet with it. A slammed Fox. Probably rebuilt seals to I'm guessing.

    Atleast you're the only person I've ever heard of with a slammed pike. I've heard of slammed rockshox, slammed marzocchis, slammed manitous, but never a slammed fox.
    I'm out of things to say . . .

    Fox is very easy to reduce, and A LOT of people have done it. They just don't call it slammed. And "rebuild seals?" Yes, it can be done, but why? Enduro wipers cost about 25 bucks.

    That's not a Pike. And Pikes are made by Rockshox.

    Sick frame! My nemesis'll be even sexier than yours! JK man, sick bike, I dig it, how does it ride?

    Oh and what model tires are those? I've never seen kendas like those before, do they come in 26's? They're probably cheaper than the arrow launch I was planning to buy.

    How much does she weigh?

    I'm hella jealous, it's snowing right now so even if I had a bike that nice, it wouldn't be getting any ride time, I'd be scared of getting it wet and snowy.

    Wasent as easy as I thought it was going to be .... the DM dropout isn't really configured in the right place to run a disk , and it's 5-mm thick so it's thinner that the regular off the shelf disk tab you can buy from Paragon or Nova ( frame material suppliers )
    So I had to take a Paragon disk tab , machine it down to 5-mm from 6.8mm
    then machine the step into the back and make it fit in line with the dropout and so it held the caliper in the proper location with the rotor .
    It came out looking pretty clean for as much hand machining that went into it .

    mmhmm, very nice, that rear end is what I was originally wishing the DM came with when it hit, but then I got my frame....

    jrudolf - what rear hub are you using? DMR, Eastern26, another?? what wheelset/rims?

    nice and simple ride, I dig it, just my style. take off the fox stickers.

    He's not taking the FOX stickers off , He;s taking the FOX off for a new NemPro tuned 07" MArzocchi 4X with full air internals !!

    Think Josh has a Eastern hub on the back , I got one in last week and the cassette engagment feels rad !!

    very nice, custom air internals huh, have you perfected your creation? I'll just drool for now. the NemPro name is catchin'.

    Yeah, the Eastern hub is SOLID, nice and loud too, just sit back, kick it into neutral, and watch the people on the sidewalk spread! running for their lives from the death ratchet... ok, not quite.

    Yes for some reason the NemPro name has stuck with me , was it you that posted this abreviation first ??? I kinda liked it and now it has stuck


    YUP got the new DOPPIO air carts all figured out , have them setup so they ajust from 55mm to 100mm of travel depending on air pressure .


    YES I love my deathratchet hub ... can't wait to go into S.F and scare tourist bombing hills into nothbeach ...LOL

    Does your front wheel hit your foot? The TT looks pretty short.

    just call them up, they should be albe to help you out, ship it direct to you... or just talk with your lbs Eastern Bikes dealer. Not sure on price, but around the $100mark, so not too bad (esp. when you compare with the Chris Bling BS)
    yeah, it's hefty, but feels centered and stout. I wish I could get a hollow 14mm axle for one and tap it for bolts!!! would be sweet.

    brad is correct, i am getting one of his tuned marzocchi 4X forks to replace the fork. i have an old rock shox pike slammed at 80mm i need to get rid of now. i am using the eastern hub in the back laced to a sun MTX rim. the front is a XM321 rim with an XT hub. the eastern hub is heavy but its very solid and has nice engagement.

    Well I did already blow the moter once gotta thank warrenty for fixing that or the 15K+ bill would have kinda hurt

    The .:R32 is much more of a true sports car than anything VW has ever made before .
    I think they built in little quirks and rattles so the driver had reasons to take their cars to the dealers ... right LOL

    It is what it is a audi quatro 3.2 built into a GOLF body so parts and labor are more and upkeep and genral mantinance needs to be spot on to keep it running like new.
    Aftermarket parts are more exspensive than normal Golf or TT parts due to the small differnces for the AWD in the Golf body .

    I'm really intrigued by those shortblock 8's... I love my Nevegals, and was considering putting the shortblock 8's on a small Trance I was building over winter, but that project got pushed to the side. Never thought about running them on a DJ bike. what size are those? I'm a bit skeptical about sidewall strength... but they do look nice.

    Audi Quattro and your R32 AWD are very different.
    Audi uses a Torsen center diff, yours uses a Haldex center diff. Your car is FWD till the car needs the rear wheels to get power for more traction. Torsen cars are full time AWD.
