    Have you heard of the GSR Mach 9?

    I was wondering if anyone has any reviews or anything to say about the GSR Mach 9 frame? Frame has 12 inches of travel with Rock Shox Coupe Deluxe pull shock. Shock has been rebuilt with no riding on it. Would you buy this frame, and if so, how much do you think I should pay for it?

    Thanks,

    David

    I thought pull shocks went the way of the Dodo bird. Are they still making those frames?

    Whomever owns the frame should pay YOU to take it.

    It's a horrible design, there were different travel versions, all with leverage ratios around 5:1. That means getting the right spring for a heavier rider may be impossible. The shock will blow out rather quickly because it's so highly stressed. I had a friend here that had one of those bikes, I took him down a descent and he blew out his shock. I kind of felt bad for him because I knew he wouldn't be able to get another pull-shock. Stay far away from this bike, it's a pile of trash.

    You're turning black metallic.
