    The Diablo is DONE!

    I have finially completed the Diablo. The Revox shock is amazing, worth the price of the frame alone. I still need a new fork and better brakes, but gonna wait till the end of the year for a sale. I just got the Saints in Friday, the same day I broke my elbow. I logged about two hours of ride time on it so far. But, oh well, sh*t happens. Tell me what ya think!

    Uhh.... not you! I saw how your Outlaws saved your ass on the dirt line at the Boneyard...

    It sucks, but hopefully within a few weeks I will be able to ride somewhere. No Diablo or Snowshoe for awhile.

    The cranks do look long, but the Diablo has a low BB height as it is. I had to decide between the 170's or 175's, I chose the 175's because the complete version comes with 175's. Plus it will help me remember to keep em level.
    Here is a pic with 175mm Race Face DH cranks on it, the spindle length on the RF was too short. They look shorter than the Saints, but they are the same.

    Really? huh... did not know that. Funny thing is, I was looking into the Brodie frames before I bought the Diablo frame. They were just a smudge out of my league.

    Thanks,
    I have slowly become an Azonic whore. I am looking into to A-Frame pedals, but they are out of stock from BTI. Also thinking the Syncro's white pedals, but $$$ is an issue.

    You would think Azonic would have at least sent me a sticker or something, but nope.

    From what Drakan said, they are ending the Diablo. I really want to get ahold of the 07 frame. Man that is a nice one, and the color is pimp. Or should I say... hemp! The complete 07' bke retails from around 4K, just could not fork over that much at once. So, orangey red is the color, but Dominion powder coat here in Virginia charges $75 for a fresh powder coat. Might be a black or * hemp 06' diablo over the winter.

    Man, they do look the same. Just cheaper builds, really close at least. Check out the shock on that one, look familiar? Same one I have on the Fuji. lol...

    Thanks man,
    I did not get the cranks on Friday, I sat on my couch in pain. Sat morning I went to the ER because I could not feel my arm. They say I fractured my elbow near my forarm. After some meds and a few beers I was able to get the cranks on later with some help. So I an mot sure when I will be able to send it at BC. I just wont hit that stupid crap that tore me up.
