    New question here. suggestions???

    I need some advice.......What fork should i get if i want to do some moderate dh and drops on my xsl? Ever heard of anyone fitting a longer shock on one of these? Lastly, whaddya all think? I just finished building her (got the frame a couple of days ago) from the remains of my k2 ht. Sorry if i seem overly excited, this is the first bike i've ever built, and i'm kinda proud of er'!!!



    The last pic is a custom photoshop job.......Wish they made em' in that color!

    get a marz z1 or something of the like...maybe a pike. but first things first, get rid of that crazy stem and get something shorter on there.

    stem is on it's way out.....

    Yeah, the xsl is a little longer than my old ht, and i want to get my weight back over the rear tire more (hard to do manuals w/ that friggin' long stem! ) I was thinkin' about maybe a 60mm kona clump, or a 50mm azonic i saw at jenson usa (it looks like a solid block of aluminum, I can't remember the name...) Any suggestions? Thanx

    suggestions for stem would be get something from a good brand but relatively cheap. you dont want to start putting on really nice aftermarket parts on an average bike. not ragging on your bike just givin you a heads up cause i have done it before and i could have just bought a really really nice bike with all the $ i put into this ok frame.
    but either of those sound good to me
