    Yesss!! Looks so good! And I dig the riser bars. Only short people or fake Canadians with too much plaid have flat bars. There. I said it.

    great build! I want one of these so bad.

    good call on the blacked out DVO, it would look pretty bad in green with the rest of your colors.

    Bob,
    You about to sell your V10 and get on a Jedi, yet? Think what your Balance's big bro would do on/to DH trails? You dipped your pinky-toe into the CB cult pool, and liked it. Dude, time to dive in, head first!

    Edit: Oh my goodness. I stopped after the word stolen. Almost threw up in my mouth thinking your brand new Balance was actually stolen. But that's a good position to be in if the wife wants a balance of her own. Expensive, but good.

    You're thinking backwards. If you're taller you'd want lower bars due to longer arms but the bigger frame makes up for reach anyway and cock-pit size... If your shorter you'd want higher bars for reach. <----yes im drunk Lol

    But srs try lower wide bars, i didn't believe till i tired. I have like 4 sets ill give you one.

    Well, there you have it! Liked it so much you went out and picked up its little brother too? Too funny your chic stole your Balance and isn't giving it back! What's mine is mine; what's yours is...just hand over your jewels Mr! HAH!

    Did you post pics of your new Jedi on here somewhere?
