    BR action pics

    Finially, but unfortunately due to an injury, I got a few action pictures. Thanks Kona for being the photo guy, you camera is the jam! I felt bad, I know you wanted to ride!

    Here are a few shots from the most recent ride we had. Wookie ripped it up with the Trail or Park, I was on the BR.

    The pics are big, so it may take me awhile to get them all posted.

    The only thing that your bike is missing is a Ti coil...

    The stump adds to the knar....... But yeah,...we give it a little kick everytime we go out. Sooner or later, she'll give way...

    Also, this is a local spot, and the guys who do the majority of the maintainaining do an amazing job for what the place is.

    Yeah... Having a bike that not only rides well but looks good too is soooooo not gnar. It is also proven than matching colors increases rear triangle flex by 13.2%

    Oh yeah,... definately keeping the Diablo. The BottleRocket is intended for more "pedal" friendly applications. The Diablo is the jam, I love riding that bike. I will use it more of a DH rig than anything else. Got a hardtail for urban/DJ too.

    I got feeling that the color coordination disease is not only applicable to the Bottle Rocket, .. just look at all these color coordinated bikes...... My god, what am I thinking? D*ck!

    Sweet bike man, is that a CF Syncros seatpost right there? Sweet rig.

    EDizzleVR6 obviously only read the first 2 letters of the title of this thread, and satisfied that it was a thread about bottlerockets, he posted his negative comments about color coordination vs. actual riding time in BRs. However, one will notice that if he had read the rest of the title, or if such big words were beyond his comprehension, just looked at the pictures, ED would have noticed that this Bottlerocket and its rider leaves no place open for such irrevelant comments.

    Just because his bike looks better than yours doesn't mean he doesn't ride it.

    Mhmmm, and where are the action shots of you ED?

    I like brown too! (sorry to jack your thread a little)

    Those grips ARE brown, BTW-almost the same shade as the frame.

    That is a nice bike tibug! I really like that frame. How heavy is that? What grips are those? I was lucky that ODI decided to offer their grips in brown this year. I really like the ODI Rouges, they fit my hands the best, I think.

    I was a little "fired up" last night when I responded to ED. I have since edited it, was not worth it. lol... but it made me laugh...

    Man you are right about the Ti coil. I had one on my big bike with a Revox. I did not like the way it felt, also it rubbed on the shock body. I went steel on that bike, and I could not be happier. I am not concerned with weight, I am not embarassed to push the bike sometimes. It would look sweet though, I still have the one from the revox, but I am sure it would not fit on the DHX. Would it,.. hmmmm??

    Thanks! Those grips are Season Skaggle mushroom style grips. They (mushroom style) are still my favorite for urban type riding, but I still favor ODI Ourys for trail riding. I'll probably switch to Ourys because I do more trail riding than I though I would. A brown saddle woulf bring it all together though...I'm not really liking that Animal Strip pivotal seat...It's alright comfort-wise, but 2 staples near the nose keep coming loose and hooking on my b-ball shorts (my prefered shorts for riding).

    I was worried about the brown color at first, but now that I've got it built up, I have NO regrets about color. I sometimes wish I had gotten a smaller frame from ebay (180$ shipped for that frame last year!), but I had to compromise between trail riding and urban/dj stuff.

    All in all a great bike!

    Ahh... you are the first to notice the "stash". Those supplies are for the Boneryard/Farm, whenever we get the chance. It's all about trash day,.. it's amazing what people throw out. Wookie got the last big score, but in this area, renovations are endless and so is the lumber. You just got to look for it.

    I had two choices with the saddle. I had the Sunline V-one saddle (brown) or the one I got (KHE Dandy in brown). The Sunline retailed for over $100, the KHE Dandy was less than $25. I do not sit down too much, so comfort is not too much of a concern to me. The Dandy is actually pretty comfortable, better than expected. Check out the KHE site, there is some pretty cool stuff there. Profile racing also has some sweet suff too.
