    that'll be the winter project. I'm not so sure about paint tho, like the raw look. Will probably shine it up a properly clear coat (or clear powdercoat) this time.

    i originally wanted a translucent black (like a smoke color where you could still get some metal shine under), but i'm a moron when it comes to paint.

    really well now that i've got the DHX on there and have finally narrowed down the geometry and shock linkage configuration....it feels pretty bottomless right now. Had some teething problems on some of the fabricated stuff (like my pulley) but overall everythings gone great. I'm extremely happy for this first run effort.

    The only problem is when i've done everything i can to it and theres nothing left to screw around with i'll get bored and want to build a new model....

    Hey Zedro,

    I remember seeing your post on modding out a Shiver with custom air caps by removing a Schrader valve and threading it to the proper size and blah blah blah etc etc. I recently did the same but found that using a Presta stem made things a hell of a lot easier.

    First off, I didn't have to use a die on the valve stem since the Presta is threaded up the stem. I left the circular rubber flange along the bottom of the stem as well and threaded the Presta stem up from inside the cap until it bottomed out pn the rubber. After doing this, I unscrewed the whole thing because I got the bright idea to put a little rubber sealant under the flange to help seal things up (I'm anal like that) and re-screwed it all, pressing the rubber flange against the inside of the cap. Of course I had to trim the flange properly and put holes in it to accomadate for all the junk going on in the fork, but it worked out. I think the next one will do with out the rubber flange since it was kind of a pain and I don't think it helped out with sealing things up. Anyways, after I got that all threaded in, I made a small rubber washer out of the inner tube to slide down the stem to seal the area between the top cap and the little nut-ring that screws onto the valve stem for mega-extra sealability.

    Now I just need to figure out how much PSI to put in this thing...

    What a wuss - he needs 25' to do the flip? I would do them from 15' off the roof of my 'rents house. (of course that was in the middle of January in Michigan with 2 feet of snow on the ground (and I was a LOT lighter then too)- LOL!).

    you know, the higher up you jump from, the more it hurts......


    people can do backflips on flat ground, but no way is that cooler than from 25 feet up! makes my knees cry just watching it..

    2 ft of snow? i dunno about you but in colorado we feel the need for atleast a solid 3.5+ ft of snwo on the ground in order to be jumping off roofs...

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.
