    Is anyone else seeing a pattern here?

    With such screaming deals on these right now it's hard to pass up.

    Thanks. I'm pretty stoked to get it and I just ordered up the rest of the parts for her today. I should have it built up by the end of next week. I'll get more pics by the weekend hopefully.

    Might that be the frame that was shipped to me by mistake? I saw it when it came in and said 'that isn't the spot I ordered.

    Sweeet ride. Enjoy!

    Welcome Aboard.
    Kool-aid is on the right.

    Hopefully you'll join some of the Tuesday nite Redstone Rides and keep me company. I'm currently the only one with a real bike and it's hard keeping company with those XC lycra boys.

    I do like Kool-aid, thanks. I'd be happy to join you with a real bike soon. I'm hoping to catch a few Tuesday night rides we'll have to see how my schedule pans out. Are you running the DHX coil? If so I'm wondering about air pressure, really I'd like to know how you have yours set up. Thanks for any info.

    So if I show up, am I on a real bike or am I an XC Lycra boy? Not sure I fit either...

    Yeah mine too, although the pricing on the RFX has crazy coil sprung thoughts creeping into my head.

    I don't need a RFX. I don't need a RFX.
    Serenity now.

    Running a PUSH'd DHX. No pressure to mess with
    I've been on a PUSH creation of some type or another essentially since I got the bike and really have no concept of how to setup a stock DHX anymore.

    Dubs....if you're running Nobby Nics then you're Lycra boy. If Bettys then you're A-OK

    Congrats Hookler, I'm running around 130 in the boost with the BO adj and propedal about halfway, 5/8" sag. I ususally crank the propedal up for the hills and back it out at the top, I found the shock a tad harsh with any more psi in there and there seems to be less of a "spike" at mid stroke if that makes sense. If I'm doing more of a climbing/descending kinda ride where I won't need all the travel then I will put in around 135psi but again I do notice a tad bit of harshness at speed over bigger hits.

    No Nics on my bike. Betty sits up front and keeps me tracking through the corners. She's a bit portly, but I like her anyway.
