    Very nice job. Now do something about the rear shock Avalanche tune is a decent option, but a new shock would be even better Things have changed a lot in terms of rear shocks.

    I am definitely looking into the avalanche tune on the 5th element. For the money, i don't think you can do better, thanks!

    Nice. i was thinking of doing all raw frame with team color Yeti graphics like the 303. i recently lost the loving feeling with the ASX and looked @ another frame, but it is now back big time. i have the bike in the 7" setting but use a 8x2 shock instead of 8.5x2.5. all i can say is wow. with a 130mm fork the head angle is around 66-67, bb is a little over 13in, and standover height is 1.5 inches lower. in 6" mode with stock shock the bike jumped and popped off the lips good, now it jumps and pops without any effort. the bike now feels amazing in the twists and turns. have to watch out since pedals are now lowers but overall love the feeling.

    I actually considered doing the frame raw with the team graphics like you mentioned, but I have seen to many white bikes that i liked...so white it was. I have a 2007 DJ frame also that i am considering doing the 2010 graphics on.
