    It's teh offseason and I am bored.

    No changes for me this year. Maybe a new frame color in the future.
    Still happy with everything :thumb:
    I see a trailbike in my near future.:rolleyes:

    Just time to get it dialed in right. I am still a little off from where I want it to be. I dont think I can get it as small bump compliant as the Dorado is. Even with very little LSC it just isn't as subtle.

    hey,

    does your headset creak? (yours has pinch bolts on it, right?) i have a buddy who works in a pretty high end shop.. needless to say, he likes to talk **** if its not a spesh or an SC.. he'd always rant about how badly these headtubes would creak, and ive always wondered if its true or not

    i dont have pinch bolts.. this is a 2011 supreme 8 (comes with single crown fork, fox RC shock, no name wheels/hubs ext ext )
    the supreme dh has the pinch bolts to alter +/- 3 degrees H.A, and adjustable wheelbase( i think )

    this has no adjustments what so ever, so i am glad that the build feels very good overhauled with DH components on it

    i enjoy it alot more than my 06 morewood izimu

    i can see the head-tube area making creaking noises though

    I would think plasti dipping your rims would make them super heavy. Wouldn't powder coat be better?

    Here's my new ride. It is sitting a little over 29lbs. with super gravity casing tires. My buddy just made me a -1* tapered headset for it too.

    Very nice - though why on earth would you plasti dip rims?!
    It's not like they are super expensive either - just ride them.

    That's a mint looking bike. If only it wasn't so crazy expensive. Maybe someday.

    Wife and I will both be on our 2012 TR450's again. Both of us are hoping to get new trailbikes but that may have to wait one more season.

    Shoot, Demo9 does't care about weight, he rides gnarcore!

    I will be rocking the 2011 Demo again for at least the first part of the year.


    And my trail bike this year is the Troy. I have never had this much fun on a trail bike!

    My 303R is a bit long in the tooth but is still serving me well . . . and it's paid for. Will get a couple new Renthal bits and, hopefully -- finally -- a ti spring. R-One will be retired for new RST Killar as soon as production versions available.

    Dunno if their customer service is better in the US, but in Yurp they don't sell spares anymore, so you have to book a full service. When the fork comes back from service it has new scratches on the stanchions that, of course, were "there before". :mad: Further it is like flipping a coin to get a reply from them when you send an e-mail.
    As much as I like the performance of the fork, this keeps me from owning another BOS.
