    ... and if we just ... my DH rig

    i purchased this bike a few years ago, its a KHS DH-50 or Fetish i got it for a deal and have been riding it non stop since i got it in 07. Im a pretty tall guy and this bike is perfect for me, its tough and very forgiving but weighs me down like a brick (46.1 pounds) the bike has had many upgrades, including a DNM volcano triple clamp fork, Romic D shock with 800lb spring, woodman stem,fsa "pig" head set, truvative crank set and chain guide,maxxis mobster rear tire and high roller front,truvativ bar, with yeti locking grips, hayes 9 hydro disc brakes with 10 inch rotars...um i know theres more just cant think of them haha well tell me what you think of the bike, i love it

    Yeah.. what do you keep in it? It looks like it would buzz the rear tire under full compression.

    i carry a spare tube, multi tool and any thing else that i might need. I dnt like to ride with a back pck so it serves it purpose well, and no there isnt any "buzz" under compression thanks for your concern

    How much do you weigh, I have a 950 lb spring on my RM7 and with the geometry of the bike it is still alot. I am cutting it in half and throwing a 450 lb on soon (I am only 180 lbs)

    Is your ride a tad stiff??
