    From "lurker" to "looker!"
    Great looking machine you've got there. It's got to be fast without any brakes, heheh.
    Anticipating a fine final build.

    I've been lurking too and just got my dambala frame last week.

    Everybody loves Mango! Nice looking ride with the Pace fork. One question though, where did you find those radical transparent aluminum cog spacers?

    Tell us about the rims please? Weight and quality impression? tire fit?

    Beauty!

    Is it my monitor, your camera, or has the Dambala changed shades of green just a bit? That looks a little softer than mine.
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.

    it's pretty damn funny that when i look @ my new bike that scene with garth brooks in the dressing room comes to mind. thanks for posting chris katan, my wife and i had this discussion when i first got the mangos. good luck finding any matching components, but atleast it looks great against the green.

    Very nice!

    I love the green and mango combo.

    Did King just do another run of mango stuff? I've been trying to track some down for a LONG time. Oh well, going a different direction now...

    Cheers!

    Maybe consider flipping both stem and Bar, for around the same bar height, but better look and feel. That's what I would do anyways.

    sweet bike...

    few bikes cut as mean a profile as a voodoo. they have something special about them, and you've maximized that effect.

    Yes. I would GUESS bar height would remain around the same.
    Edit : a bit lower probably now that I give it more thought. 1.5" rise in the bar, 3" lower flip it. Stem is worth around half I woukd say. Do you need the bars that high? And the seat tilted that way? Are you mostly DH-oriented?

    not dh at all, just working out the kinks.
    i guess the seat thing comes from my bmx days. it will level out more when i find the right bar/seat height.
