    New XC highline, almost ready

    Getting close. I'll have the headset delivered tomorrow, all the other parts are in a box at the lbs, it should be rolling soon! (tomorrow) Keeping it XC though with the Codes, holzfellers, monster T, etc...

    It's a good thing you have that table in front of the front wheel. Otherwise that thing might start going uphill under it's own power!

    Try to keep it under 45 lbs, or you'll move it into the "All Mountain" category.

    I'd wager that Jayem's highline will climb like a bike much lighter than it's actual 55 pounds.

    Pedals lighter than it is. All time best mtb quote.

    No, the all time best mtbr quote is "and I don't even notice the extra weight". True poetry when spoken by the most ardent weight weenies who buy something new, but have to settle for the increase in weight. When something lighter eventually becomes available, the replacement occurs at warp speed.

    Haha that's awesome. I think it would be interesting to bring back the Monster with a reliable air system. The fork is already super stiff and has great dampening, it just needs to be put on a diet and it would rock for years to come.

    Sweet Ride JM

    That Monster T makes me think of Simmons Gapping the Marz truck in NWD3 or shore riding in Kranked 4.

    That's one bad MF'er Jayem! Very nice, will eat that pavement up.

    Thanks again for the rockers you sent me, they fit perfectly and are identical to the RFX's, minus the ill-designed air valve cutout ones.

    Ride On!
