    ok...I'll play along too.

    Brand new and shiny. About 15hrs on her so far.
    Still waiting(come on hurry up I'm starting to feel jipped) for the forks to loosen up a bit. Have yet to feel broken in.

    Haven't had a chance to do shuttles on this thing yet so I've pedaled it up many many hills, and enjoyed every downhill section too though.

    Have yet to find anything to really push the limits of the bike. The back end just feels so smooth over anything I throw at it.

    ok..enough...no one asked for a bike reveiw.

    My Franken-Fuji

    I as well have posted her before, but I put on a new rear shock, bash guard and a Minion up front, so it is legal to show her again. lol..

    I call her the Franken-Fuji..... and a damn nice ride, very comfortable. The only thing original on the bike is the frame and the rear cassette.
    Thank you PRICEPOINT!

    SMT--- I know its alot to ask, but I can't get the wooden bike out of my head. Uhh...well... uhhh... if we cross paths in Mammoth, you think I could roll it off one of the ladder drops??? Just curious! Again, the bike is a work of art! You must be proud.

    Wohhh dude! That might be a little much fork for that frame. I think they come speced with 140mm forks.

    Just sayin... hope it holds

    The complete bike did come with a 145mm Manitou Nixon. The rear travel is 150mm or 160mm. The fork is a U-turn with adjustability from 135mm to 178mm. I rarely dial it down to 135 though. The bike actually feels nice, I have had the fork on there for about 9 months with no problems. The bike holds up very well, I have had less problems with this than my roommates with their Transition Dirtbag and Haro X7. Big drops, super far gap jumps, and all the skinnys she can handle. She seems great to me, just enough smoosh.

    I am in the market for a new frame, but not anytime soon. $$$ is an issue right now though.

    I most certainly do.

    Things I've changed since this picture:

    DHX 5.0 with 400# spring
    New '05 Shermann Break-out
    Race Face seat post
    WTB Freeride saddle
    Gamut P40
    FSA DH 36t ring
    Specialized 2.5 Chunder tires

    Is that a funn snow camo saddle? is it any good?

    another question, where does the weight come from in that build? everything looks well above board, but it should easily be able to break the 40lb barrier. Or is it just the frame?


    Nice bike tho

    Welp, I'm new to these bikes. I been a Cat 1 roadie, I been a XC racer dude, and I am ALWAYS and FOREVER a 20" dirt jumper. But I just built my first freerider, though I have always been a freerider. I ain't never had any suspension at all 'til a month or so ago. I built this offa e-bay and leftovers from folks I know. I got less than 800 in the entire bike. I know folks have bagged on these old frames but I'm diggin it all to hell, total blast.

    man, you're bike is the sh!t, bro. Now you need to learn how to ride it to its full potential . seriously. at keystone this year, i wanna see some nose-manuals down three-step, three-sixties of jaws, and a few front flips of the cheese wedge. you no longer have any excuses not to. But keep in mind how nice myyyyy rig is gonna be once i get those upgrades for it that i won't shut up about..... . i still can't get over how TALL those pinits of yours are. lets go shuttle you know where next week, a'ight?
    I kinda wish my brakes actually worked, but I guess that just makes me faster, right?

    Yes it is and it works great for DH. Weight is 225grams. If it were Ti it would be better.

    Frame is 12.5 lbs. The stock build is 46 out of the box with some heavy parts on it. The stock wheels 729s were super heavy for a wheel set. I dropped must of the weight in the wheels about 2 lbs. I run Outlaws with Michelin's setup Tubeless. Rest of the weight was in the Stem, Bars, Seat, Seat Post, Chain Guide, and rear shock spring. The real only place I can drop more is in the cranks (Soon), unless I want to spend some $$$$ on lighter parts than what I have now. Not going to do that.
    Ride!

    i think i might have ridden THAT specific rogue at sea otter (or one with the exact same component specs, but it sounded like they didn't have billions of them sitting around)

    and that dare looks sick.

    Kind of strange how I had some orange parts in my build that match it. I guess it was meant to be.

    It might be an optical illusion. When I look at the bike, it doesn't look bent like it does in the pic.

    Is there a way I can check the alignment just to be sure?

    EDIT: Thanks or the heads up guys...I would have never noticed that!

    Hmmm, if it was that bent, you should feel the fork with a LOT of stiction...
    maybe it is the angle??

    If they are twisited, the front wheel won't sit right in the center of your lowers.
    It could very well be just a weird light effect from your picture.
    If they are twisted, loosen up all your crown, axle, pinch, and stem bolts to untwist the lowers.

    The bike is amazingly solid, like it was carved out of a single piece of metal. The Industry 9 wheels are also great, so solid and stiff. The bike makes no noise, the guys I ride with all comment with envy about how silent it is. Highly recommend.

    I think its an optical illusion. If you look at the upper side of the left leg, you'll notice some shine from the stancions, that makes it look like the amount of left leg showing is thinner. If that was the case, up top would have virtually no left leg showing and the entire left leg whould be showing down low. I think its pretty clear you can see the illusion if you look carefully.

    someone needs to sticky this...anyway here's my baby.. frame just came in a couple weeks ago. And I know I know, the suspention seatpoast is gay; it's just temperary. The frame requires a wierd seatpost size. This is also a somewhat old pic. In the pix below it is not done (no cranks or cabels). But it is done now.

    Yup.

    Have the wife hold it in position. Focus on the frame, then have her let go of the bike and step out of the frame. Snap a shot and have her catch it BEFORE it hits the ground...

    That's how they do it in the bike mags too. The result is pretty cool.

    Note:
    A girfriend will do just fine, not necessary to marry her.
    Oh, and for SMT it can be someone that he paid for...

    Uhm.....why not just use a small metal rod under a peddle (skewer or screw driver) and Photo Shop it out? Way less risk to your baby It was under the peddle and mostly behind the tire in this one, so I guess not the best example since it needed next to no PS, but you get the idea

    Ok, thanks for everyone's input. Now I know exactly what to do if I have a bent stanchion. lol

    I was able to get a better look at the bike today and esquire is right, it is the light reflecting off the stanchion that makes it look bent.

    I have another pic of the bike at a different angle which shows everything lined up. I'll post it when I get a chance (if anyone cares hehehe).

    edit: Added new pictures.

    Don't sell yourself short. There will definitely be a time in your life when you can and if you want to will afford any kind of bike you want. I know this is totally the wrong forum but the power of lists is amazing. Whatever you want write it down and put it someplace where you can see it on a daily basis, get it into your gray matter and see what happens. The bike will come along a lot faster than you can imagine...if that's what you really want.

    Your Highline is a work of art. The only frame I'd even consider ditching the Uzzi for. My LBS had one last year and I had a chance to ride it. It's a wicked bike.

    Yup.

    Have the wife hold it in position. Focus on the frame, then have her let go of the bike and step out of the frame. Snap a shot and have her catch it BEFORE it hits the ground...

    That's how they do it in the bike mags too. The result is pretty cool.

    Note: A girfriend will do just fine, not necessary to marry her.
    Oh, and for SMT it can be someone that he paid for...
    sweet thanks...ill go out and try it

    Compliment+a question

    I liked the two dirtbags, but all the rigs are VERY nice.
    Now all the pics in this forum always showing bikes clean as hell and like new.
    I know most of them ARE new, but if they not: have you guys EVER scratch it
    ot fall off/crash?

    You can still buy them new... I guess they werent that popular. Its a great fork, but the 66SL weighs 1.2 lbs less

    Scratches are nothing to be ashamed of. These are hardcore badges of honor!

    But still, take care of your bike.

    L Ron, nice ride







    Likewise!

    That's the colour I wanted, but it would have meant a 3 month vs 2 week wait for the grey.
    I'm really happy with my fork, it's perfect for my purposes because we don't have any lift accessed or shuttle-able DH trails here so we have to ride/hike up everything and I do a fair amount of trail riding. The ability to change the geometry of the bike is really useful. Plus the damping is ace and the Maxle rules!!


    As for scratches, there are lots on mine, just look at my fork lowers.

    missed this awhile ago, might as well show off my shittt

    on a side note, im looking to trade the v10 frame for something a little more pedable, like a vp free or nomad maybe. also, selling either bike/frame isnt out of the question either. need to cut down to one bike

    I waited two months for my '08 36 Talas. The wheels took longer. I gave up on Azonic and Pro-dealed some nice wheels from the neutral country. I just went over the bars a couple minutes ago and caught my knee on my nice long steerer tube. Yes I know, "cut it you dumbass"..... no I'm not commiting to this frame. It was 99 dollars from Adrenaline, but it's nice. I'm looking at eiter a Fly or Intense 6.6

    that is a sick stable of rides you got there, including the c230 sport(i miss that car) but I have to ask...garmin on a dh rig??? I assume you use if for altititue and speed, etc. which acutally seems like a cool idea. I just know that a $200 would not last too long on my bike..and with my luck prob only one run.

    Just built this up last night with the usual chainguide spacing issues! After some hacking and sawing i found something reasonably functional!
    Seems smooth in the hardcore rand down the driveway!
