    RCC, what year is that rear Fox shock? How does it pedal on the climbs?

    Congrats!

    Thanks Man.
    The build is:
    -2008 La Bruja Frame .
    -Fox dhx coil shock w/500# spring(I might be looking at a 550# spring).
    - RS Totem coil Fork.
    -Thompson stem 70mm no rise.
    -Sunline V1 handlebars 30" wide.
    -ODI Ruffian grips.
    -Gravity dropper.
    -WTB saddle.
    -Truvativ Hammerschmidt 24-34 gears set up.
    -Avid Code Breaks 8" front disc,7" rear disc
    -Hope ProII hubs laced to Mavic 819 ust rims(823s are in the works!)
    -Maxxis Minions DHF 2.5 front and back Tires.
    -Sram X-9 shifters
    -Sram X-9 RD low cage.
    Total build so far around 39lbs. she's a heavy baby but pedals good as long as I can keep on turning them crank arms.

    The trails around here are amazing! If you ever make it out this way, I'm sure you won't be dissaponted,just make sure is in the summer time so you can sample all higher elevation goodies stuff like this! or some buff single track is all out here

    This pictures are from a few rides from last year.peace

    I bought a Bastardo a few weeks ago, frame fork and headset. Some parts from my old bike, some new stuff, and it was ready to roll! I'm still dialing in fit and suspension settings, but so far it's pretty sweet!

    Happy delivery:

    Duplicate...Image Test.

    Edit: Success! But only 800pix wide

    Edit II: Try No. 2

    Ventana Bruja Gen 1.75
    Ok, Flicker is joke too 500pix wide?

    Let's give ole MTBR a try.

    Edit: Well it works, it's wider and easier to see but compression kills the details. Oh well.
