    ... and if we just ... Finished finally

    It took two weeks longer than I thought but I am finally done with my build. As usual I've got people to thank, which are in truth just shamless plugs I 've gotta thank my LBS Go-ride.com, Jerry Vanderpool at Hippietech Suspension, Darin at Gravityworx racing and of course Neil at Morewwod because without this I'd just have a pile of parts. Seven weeks out of surgery and I was able to coast down my street. The feeling of freedom and being self sufficent again, even for a second was worth the wait. I took some finished pics although my dog is not in any of them, this time. Enjoy a ride for me while I am still stuck doing rehab.

    Okay, yes it is a Manitou, I got a screaming deal on it, WAAAY below cost, since it was so expensive and I could get it so cheap I figured WTF. I had Hippietech tune it for me and it is incredibly smooth. Just a hint at price even with the cost of the tune it's not even the price of a DHX 5.0. I am leaving to NY tomorrow for a week when I get back I might have Von, Kris or one of the other riders at go-ride take her for a spin and write a review since I can't ride, yet. bodben, it is a go ride crown makes the stock crown look like plastic. I'll post a close up later today.

    Very nice sir. building from the ground up must be very rewarding. Like having kids maybe?

    Bodbens pics

    Here they are just 2 of them if you want more detail I can email you some where the machinework is really evident. I'm not knocking fox, the go-ride crown is just better, call it a factory look if you like. The things I noticed besides the integrated stem was the thikness of the crown specifically right in the middle oppsed to the stock fox part that is noticeably tapered. Also instead of having one bolt to tighten around the steerer tube the Go-ride crown has two. Little things like the thickness of the metal around the stanctions, actually looking at it now it's just a biger piece of metal all round.

    Yeah building from th eground up was alot more fun and a real challenge I only allowed myself so much $$$ per month to spend . If I over spent I had to wait, luckily alot of people on Ebay had the parts I needed to make it on time and almost on budget

    I'll definitely be taking it easy for the next month or so I want to ride this bike not hang it on the wall like a piece of art, although it could be. I'll hopefully weigh it tomorrow after my 2nd post op visit. Thanks for all the compliments. Cheers JK

    I had go-ride cut it, I don't trust myself with certian tools. What we decided to leave about 1/2 inch above the crown.

    Just got back form the docs no strenous riding until June , but I also did get a weight on the bike 41.83 lbs. not too bad, I think that the galfer rotors and SS brake lines gave me those extra two pounds, but really it's not like I'm gonna climb anything. You know the front tire is a 2.7 and the rear is a 2.5, I bet if I went to 2.5 front, 2.35 rear I could shave some more weight off...and maybe I could wear some spandex too....
