    those metal springs on the shock are very heavy.....give Manitou a call and see what you can get a Ti spring for.....save you a pound to a pound and a 1/2

    sweet bikes, I see you kept your coiler for AM stuff yeah? I was going to do the same with mine but after writing out a shopping list it came to way over my budget so I just sold it.

    The wheelbase on your dh'er looks tiny, she'll be quick around tight stuff.

    Enjoy

    Yeah the Coiler is a great all around mtn bike. It actually took my almost 4 months piecing the Azonic together, so the financial hit wasnt too bad.

    so do the rest of ours dumbass, the rest of ours are just much lower to begin with. with sag, the gravity sits at the same height as my Canfield F1 in a static position......

    the the poster of the high BB statement, you are correct, SMT has one and i rode it around for a minute and it was a very high riding bike....

    Hey no-pistons, watch out for the lizard skin on the chainstay. I think from the pic it looks like you zip-tied it so it may be ok. I tried to run one on my gravity and it would slip down towards the derailur and get pinched in the the pivot.

    Bike looks sick. Glad to see someone else here appreciates teh Gravity

    And to all those nay-sayers, I run the shock in the lowest position at Whislter and Mammoth and it's awesome. No worries about a high bottom bracket.
