    yeah~ the DHX and Fox 40 have Natural blue accents, So i thought the levers and caps would be a nice addition.

    those pedals have no pins. How well do they grip like that? it looks like the pins would be rad if you get your foot placement just right, but if you're slightly off looks like a serious drop. I like my syncros that I can just mash my foot somewhere on the pedal (marz bomber shoes w/ 5.10 rubber) and have it stick

    With that cable routing to the rear d does it not bunch up under compression where you have it cabled by the top tube/seat tube junction? Maybe it is just more noticeable in yellow!

    Yeah..I had to zip it like that ...without that zip tie the cable would stick out to the right when the suspension was compressed and get caught on my shin pad. I got sick of it and decided to rig it like that. The cable doesn't bunch up too bad. I don't think it will do any damadge to it?

    It's all personal preference. I don't like too many pins when wearing 5.10's. I like being able to move my foot around to find the sweet spot. With too many pins you can plant a foot in the wrong place on the pedal and have it stick too much, making it a pain to relocate in the middle of a trail section.

    imo that bike would be totally smokin with yellow hubs and spoke nipples, not that it doesn't look awesome already though.
    I lubed my disc brakes because they squeaked.
    Man was that fun to work out

    AAAAAGH! no the 150mm rear hubs do NOT suck.

    The 135s are garbage, but the 150mm (which you need) are awesome.. 4 pawl engagement...

    Wow.

    Well you said bring on the haters right? I just can't buy the red/blue accents with the neon green/yellow. Pick one or the other bro. It looks like something I puked up last time I drank Jager.

    That being said...sick bike dude I just don't like the color combo.

    If that is what you puked up the last time you drank jager you should probably go see a doctor. Either that or go into production.......

    Havn't been to SR since opening day due to rainouts and work. I've been riding highland more often though.
