    Nice!

    My Salty was overly aggressive and tried to atack my Flux a couple of times. I had to keep them apart. I tried to suggest cooking as a way to calm it down and I was almost poisoned. However, when it came to the trails, the Salty was very sweet.

    What's taking you so long?!!

    How about you have your wife cook up some of that Thai goodness and I'll come over, finish that thing up & get you to riding.

    Note: Are you sure that rear brake line is long enough for the extra wheel base of the Salty?

    Nice one. It is beginning to look like the bike of my dreams. Please continue with build immediately and post pics, lots of pics, and then give a ride report. What was your previous ride? I would like an El Salt if I could get it down around 24-25lbs, realistic?

    You can get it down to that weight. Omega's probably will be.

    Looks great!

    Tom...just a thought...but you probably don't need that Blackspire Stinger in 4" mode...it is only going to cause you more drag with little or no benefit.

    You are right, I am ordering another set of Formula and keep this set for Toro, I am going to try K18 this time.

    How about some Larb Chicken?
