    2008? What will you be riding?

    Well just by looking through these forums, and some of the off the stand magazines, 2008 is going to be a year of hard decisions.

    Santa Cruz is redesigning the V10 with carbon bits, shaving almost a lb off the frame. Rennie and Peaty are already riding the new model.

    Mountain Cycle should be back.

    Intense has the new M6, which is absolutely beautiful.

    I've also heard rumors of Lapierre possibly coming to the states.

    And the big finale, at least for me, is the return of the Sunn Radical, which I'm going to try very hard to get my hands on.

    What do you guys think?

    Not sure yet, I'm thinking I might trade up the Nomad for a bigger hit bike though.

    I'm considering a few.

    The '08 P.Cr-Mo.
    I can pick up an '07 Jamis Dakar XAM from my shop for wholesale price to cover the AM.
    I may still be getting a hookup by a friend on an '07 Demo 8.

    I will still be riding an '03 Hardrock frame that I built up for light FR untill I can get the other bikes, then I'll do something else with it.
    I also have my '06 FSRXC for XC racing which I still do now and then also as a backup.

    I will see if I can ride a 2008 Morewood Izimu DH with Boxxer Team or WC and a new wheelset. Maybe 5.1D's to Hopes.

    I'll see though, I'm gonna transfer a lot of parts from my 67, except the fork and wheels.

    I think I'm gonna sell the Nomad frame, DHX, and Talas, maybe try and score a Blindside w/ one of the new 888, and a Roco, and switch everything over.

    My bank account is gonna hurt

    A VP FREE!!! Mostly At Attitash and some DH Shuttle runs in NH as well as for Urban Assualts and a Reign 2 on some XC hand built trails in Southern Maine.

    I cut this trail by hand and 100% man power (axe and hand saw, no chain saw!) The log ride is about 30 feet and 2 about two feet from the ground. I am in the process of making 2 more berms, a 3 foot kicker and a small 2 foot table top as well!

    I'm in the process of building my end of '07 season/'08 bike. M3 with Boxxer and a light weight build. I'll likely end up with a Trek Fuel Ex 7 with a couple mods for a light duty rig as it wont see the amount of use as the M3.

    I kinda wish my brakes actually worked, but I guess that just makes me faster, right?

    Want to get a true DHer end of this year. Was leaning towards the Foes 2:1 DHS Mono but now I'm getting a thing for a new Turner DHR...?

    Might replace my Demo 9 with a new Blindside also.

    Hopefully get a 6Point to replace my Spesh SX. It should compliment my Sunday Factory quite nicely.

    From what I heard yes. It is just going to be like the Juicy line. You have the Juicy 5, and 7. The code 7 is supposed to be the lighter version of the current code. (I HOPE)

    Yeah, seriously. Those tires are so wrong for the riding you're doing, and that fork is too much travel! Seriously get a hardtail first, dont get a full suspension..

    I will probably be riding the same SWD Crazy 8 Frame or next years model. I just need better (non-used) parts to put on it and I will be golden.

    I'll be riding an '08 303 for sure. Unless Yeti comes out with something infinitely cooler and better and faster and sexier.
    The older I get, the faster I was.

    bike on order, just not sure if it will get here in 07, 08 or 09. Seems to take quite awhile.

    Oh BTW, it's an SWD 216DH.

    Hopefully kona stab...rode one of the garbanzo editions up at whistler. I'd never really considered kona before, but I was impressed. Either that or just keep the norco!

    A Transition Blindside as soon as they become available. I am hoping they will do them up in other colors than what they have listed. Like maybe blue or pink.................

    Um, those are the same bike... Intense M5. No M6 there.. It looks like an M6 on the seattube, but it's not. Look at the M5 full pic on sicklines, its the same one.

    can't spring for the dhx 5.0 when you have one of the nicer builds planned? and you even are putting a ti spring on a van...

    I cut this trail by hand and 100% man power (axe and hand saw, no chain saw!) The log ride is about 30 feet and 2 about two feet from the ground. I am in the process of making 2 more berms, a 3 foot kicker and a small 2 foot table top as well!

    I'm undecided. Money isn't really a factor, it just comes down to making a choice and I have no idea what to choose.

    Kona Stinky, Foes Fly, Transition Bottlerocket, Santa Cruz Bullit, I dunno. So many choices.

    M5/M6 are the same bike. Intense just had to rename it. Can't tell if the two pictures are the same or not, but there is indeed an M6.

    Well, I had to re-post and update what's "actually" going to be in the stable. I just got picked up by Intense and can't wait to get my hands on these. Builds are still TBD, but I'm thinking coil/coil on the Socom and air/air for the 6.6. (Shooting for Stealth Black on both frames.) Now the waiting begins....

    Socom FRO


    and a 6.6

    You know that when you sipe your tires, that you should only due them to older tires, because of the fact that it is really only intended for a couple runs.
