    Its ready to rock "Y", finally! PICS!!!

    Finally got the time to build another bike, to compliment my bullit. This one seems to be more DH stable as where the bullit is definently a FR machine.
    Would I be better putting a 24" on the rear?
    I know the RM7's had there problems and so have all frames at one time or another, the main one is shocks blowing up. So I put an avy on it.
    Weight is 39 lbs

    Whats the downfall to the frame, I can beef it up and have it re heat treated. It seems a little squirrley in the rear, new bearings and an avy took care of that.
    It handles drops excellent with a plush and endless feeling.
    So what is the big beef against the rm7 frames?

    a lot of complaints about the rear shock linkage and breakage issues

    the only thing i dont like about the older rm's is the rear swingarm is so dinky looking. it just doesnt go with the front triangle. i think they did a great job on the rmx's though. you managed to build it up at 39lbs to i lifted a rmx onto a chairlift once(i got to work it for an hour at wintergreen) the bike was a tank but that did not discourage me from wanting one soo bad. if i can get a rm7 or an rmx i deff will. gret alooking bike man
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    Thanks, I followed the same build as my bullit and it seemed to be bullit proof.
    The bike weighs 39lbs now and thats without ti spring and a heavier tire on the rear.
    Spring and tire should bring it down around 37.5 ready to go.
    Yes weight is a concern of mine, and reguar maintenance and tuning is like a relegion to me.

    I assume the cranks were powdercoated

    The cranks look sweet, how much to have that done?

    Thanks, I appreciate the non hate rm7 compliment.
    I really don't care for the people that bag a ride, 1/2 of their bikes in my opinion are crap anywase. Would I express that "NO" I might give it a compliment and mention the problems that frame was inherent to having just so they can prepare or look into.
    Anyhow I've had alot of different frames and rode several others. I like the rm7 and give it props on handling and landings, it all out rocks. The bullit what can I say reliable and bullit proof, with an avy it handles beatifull. Both get my thumbs up and will remain in my stable as permanent frames. Great bikes.
    The swing arm does look skinny though, as long as it doesnt snap it can wear a bikini for all I care.
