    Dual crown freeride hardtail eye candy....

    Well after two years of riding I have finally stepped up my riding level to the point were my parts were limiting me... Translation I broke something everytime I rode the thing so I upgraded a slew of parts. Here is the build:

    Stock Iron Horse Yakuza Bakuto drivetrain

    FUNN Big Grab Seat

    Azonic Outlaws

    Hayes HFX - 9 Front and Rear

    Wellgo Pedals

    Azonic Protaper Oversized Bars

    2003 Sherman Slider TPC+ (6 inch)

    Panaracer FR 2.4 (Big Knobbies)

    Ruffian Lock on Grips

    Will be on in the next week e.13 DRS (Backordered)

    I know that I might get bashed for the dual crown thing but I love my hardtail. It would not feel right switching to a FS.

    Here is some eye candy:

    I was not to crazy about them either until I came upon a 2003 Slider with claimed TPC+ and did a little researcha and found out that it was not a lie and went for it. I hate SPV and when I found this at 200 shipped I could not pass it up. It is just a stiffer breakout for 03. And ECH those are the B- 57's and they are awesome.

    nice! the slider's a great fork for that bike, as it's similar axle-crown height as the 6" single-crown, maybe even a bit lower. that, plus the stiffness and the fact that its tpc+ makes it a pretty good choice. I'm still on an old (2003?) Sherman Breakout with tpc+, and won't give that up till I get a chance to try some of the new 1.5 RS options.
