As of now I have added a chainstay/ tensioner, odi rogue lockon grips, and had the seat post cut down to sit flat on the tubing. Any other ideas would be appreciated.
    I think it depends on how good your lockout is. With most lockouts I've found that even when it's on, you still have a cm or so of travel, which is just enough to save your wrists in a cased landing. But I usually run my DJ3's at a pretty high pressure, so they feel stiff. If they don't bottom out when you nose a landing, then you've got it right.

    Appreciate it I am running it as stiff as possible without locking out for now so I can get a better feel for the bike. I also heard that endo while locked can do some damage to the fork is that true?

    Decided to try it with gears again.... Vinyl dyed the D on the seat to match loaded AMX wheelset and loaded stem.

    The wheels are still tru as the day I bought them and that was 3 months ago. Haven't even had to tension them up yet. Stem is nice too. N ot too much info about this wheel set online... I had to dig to find anything review wise.24 point engagement on the rear hub and the bolt on axle is freakishly stiff! I'm very happy with the stuff so far.

    cool, yea reviews are slow so far. Good looking line though. I'm looking to go with bolt on rear as well, keep us updated on how things hold up... your bike looks sic, how did you vinyl die the seat?

    Azonic step down axle works perfectly with the hubs. As far as vinyl dyeing.. I had to mask the entire seat and around the emblem and then just spray it about 4 times. Masking took about an hour and the rest was about 15 minutes dry time per coat of dye. The dye goes on like spray paint but has a flex agent mixed in so it won't crack or peel when the vinyl stretches.

    Even if you look close at the seat you can't tell it used to be a pinkish purple.... Looks as good as if it came from Deity that way. I definitely think the Loaded wheelset is better than a set of Azonic outlaws because they are hand built and don't have to tighten the spokes all the time. I flat spotted my outlaws fairly quick and was always having to tru them. Not so much with these.

    you should ditch the azonic axle for one of these from atomlab. much better than that heavy piece of azonic crap..
