    Wow, old school stuff... with a bit of new school flare.

    Is that a Risse modular rear end?

    I don't know how hard you're going to push that bike, but I'd be a little on the conservative side.

    The big rotors and the Psylo is not a great combo. The El Caminos have a small fluid capacity, so if you're into high speed stuff... they tend to fade out.

    I'm pushin' 50, so I'm not pushin' the bike real hard. I do like to go fast and we do some pretty gnarly downhill here in Northern California. But it's fun to ride.

    I'm hoping for a new fork for Christmas and maybe a different set of brakes. By chance; would you know what year that frame might be?? Anyone?? Thanx

    thats what i was told when i got it from Risse, his shop is just around the corner from my place so i do a little business w/ him. BTW, that front combo isnt great because of the 8" rotor w/the QR?

    I been running a Hippie Tech tuned Psylo with 8 in rotor for 3 years now and havent had a single problem. All the DH runs at Bootleg, Southridge and Mammoth that combo has seen nothing easy.

    Its an 03 Psylo race. When I sent it to Hippie Tech the lowers were all beat and they changed it out for a new one free of charge . Oh and they have the best sticker in the industry. loved it so much I had my wheels laced with rasta colored nips.

    they did the same for me too, replaced the lowers no charge. the fork works great i really do like it. i'll try to get a pic of the sticker on my fork.
