    I have the Mags... I love them. Or better said they have last more than two seasons with no problems. A proper build, bleed, and reg maintenance goes a long way.

    Good to see one not built like a DH bike! Nice work, looks good.

    (and I agree - Mags are the sh.t and last forever!)

    Certainly a different path than the majority of the BR builds on here but I mean that in a good way. Congrats on a sick ride.

    That raw does look pretty good. I have a baby blue frame in layaway at the LBS waiting for me.
    Here's to many jammin' sessions on your raw BR Wyrm.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    What's wrong with his brakes? I'm running a set of Hayes mags from 2001. Not a single problem, other then a broken brake line from hitting a sampling.

    Decals or no decals?
    What color? White, black, green, red? Where?

    I was thinking of decals on the underside of the downtube. To protect from rocks... Wait I have no paint to protect.

    Nice one so close to perfect. I would go with some shimano road drivetrain, hone cranks.

    Raw is trully best choice. Looks great

    Hone Cranks???? Those cranks are equal to the LX. The XT is was better. They are light and stiff. Especially this year... about 880g for triple ring.

    Edit: I agree with the road (partially)... I will go with a 11-27 or 12-26 rear cassette eventually.

    I'd have to say black. Then put some type of paint protection tape over the stickers so they dont get all fugly.
