    The Jekyll has been completed...

    today i finially finished puting my dr. jekyll together with my parts off of my kona. i love this frame so far, it is sooo smooth and solid when landing or in the air, and feels way faster then my kona. it is a crazy nice frame. it is a regular size, which is basically a small/medium. it is a little shorter then my medium kona frame, but it feels super nice because it has slacker geometry. i am 6ft tall, so in some ways i should of gotten the XL frame, but identiti themselves told me even someone 6''1 at their company rides a reg frame and it works. the shorter frame makes manualling even easier, and feels way more flickable in the air. i also got some new parts before putting the frame together, so here is the build. also, none of the graphics are decals, they are all painted on, which may not be too rare but shows quality IMO


    frame: black dr. jekyll reg
    fork: pike sl set at 95mm
    wheels: F-singletrack, R-SOS
    Tires: specialized 2.1s, soon to be arrow launch 2.25s
    crankset: NEW Saints with 175mm arms and 34T ring
    BB:saint
    Pedals: Easton Flatboys off my DH bike, which means i get to order NYC race lites to replace them
    R.D: x.7
    Cass: 8 speed shimano
    Shifter: alivio 8 speed, soon to be sram x.7
    Saddle: Bontrager Road saddle(don't hate, road seats are the shyt)
    Brakes:Shimano Mechs with 6in rotors, new pads to be installed soon
    levers: avid
    Bars/Stem: Kona DH

    i love yours too, looks like a great set up. ya i don't know which trails you were refering to(freeride/mountain trails or DJ trails) but ya this is basically my DJ/4X/Street ride. it will look a little more like that once i get the new tires, and maybe go SS or run a different Cass in the future. but ya JEKYLL PRIDE

    hijack? i hope not

    anybody ridden the identiti 666r and if so how does it compare/different from the dr/jeckyl i am trying to decide between the two frames, and it will be for mostly dj's but some street and slalom. thanks and those are some inspiring bikes.
    they call you a gansta if you spend big bucks on a pair of 20" chromes. well shlt.... i got a pair of 26's!
