    Hayes Hydraulic brakes
    WTB Saddle
    Shimano DX Pedals
    E Thirteen Guide

    Looks like you've got all the components you need. I would just buy a real DH frame and switch all the parts onto it.

    Congrats, yeah a new frame down the road is something to shoot for. In the meantime switch out that stem for a direct mount.
    Most importantly, get riding!

    Disregarding the frame, $545 for those components is a great deal. Ride the frame for a while to get a sense of how you want everything to work, and in the meantime save more $ and test ride as many other frames as you can. Nice one!

    Is the Reebok logo painted or are they just stickers?

    It would look 1,000,000 times better if you removed the reebok logo.

    I'd be guessing it is an 'off the rack' frame from some Taiwanese manufacturer. There are catalog's full of frames like this for cheap. It was probably just used for some sort of promotion to a supplier or something, you know, buy 10,000 prs of sneaks and get a bike...

    Well, you can just tell people you're sponsored by Reebok.

    I do know Reebok had a Reebok eliminator DH race in the mid 90's But still not sure why they would build this.

    It is the same reason Porsche, BMW and Mercedes have bikes. They sell to people who know very little about bikes, and there are usually little in the way of warranty issues, since the buyers are all folks who do not ride very much.

    That BMW bike doesn't look half bad at all. Just look at the expensive components it comes with. I wonder if the frame is good quality.

    I have rode for about ten years give or take and rode BMX before that and do know most of my stuff . I do know all i need is to buy a frame .which is the main reason i bought the bike for all the great parts on it i paid $525.00 for the complete bike which now means i dont have to spend $1500 or more on parts . I will ride this for a little while seems like a decent frame even though it doesnt say Specialized.
