    Yeah I gotta question. You got any excuses tonight Roy ? -Antonio Tarver

    There is room for it all, just ride what you like to on what you like to...that's freeriding. -rbn14

    You should see the thread below about the Heckler... not quite FR/DH but it may help.

    It will be hard to build the bullit below 35lbs while keeping strength.

    Too start off...

    Seatpost:thompson
    Stem:Syntace F139
    Bars:Something carbon...
    Wheels: Use King hubs, Alloy nips, CX ray spokes and some medium weight-heavy rim, maybe the new syncros(this wil be an expensive wheel...).
    Tires: Use Kevlar beaded tires.
    Run a light weight saddle and light grips(foam are nice, I have seen a couple of DH'ers using them).


    There more ways, but they all come at a price. This bike will get really expensive if you want it strong and light.
