Bought the Majin off of Price Seliger in October and built it up this semester break with my parts off of my old bike. Just waiting for a new BB to show up next week and it will be finished. I took 2 teaser photos just becuase i am pumped. The part that amazed me the most was how nice and slack this bike is and the 12 inch BB might not run it in that setting to much though. Tell me what you think. Its not finished still need to fine tune some parts of it but i want your opinions.

Thanks for looking.

Also if you can, you should run your shock with the resi in the front.
It looks like your e13 guide might stand to be rotated a bit but can't tell 100% from the shot.

What all are you putting on it?

Agreed with #5, looks like that resi will hit the down tube when deep into the travel when run in that orientation. Probably switch that up before riding, but cool looking frame!

What's the BB height sagged out, like sub 10"?

It seems to me theres a point where a really low BB will cause more problems than help, but cool if it works for ya.

Im not sure if you did this to lower the bike down but the front shock mounting hardware is backwards. what size shock are you running. I just used mine in the 9" setting with the 8.75 and it got a 13.25-13.5 bb.

Looks mint..!! you not worried about grounding out?? does that company have web site?
Well it really isn't a company. The frame is a garage built from Chile if I remember right. Vitox is the one to get in contact for more info. Also there is a thread about it named 'The sickest of the garage built frames' or something similar.

hi

looks like you have the shock shuttle on the wrong way, normally there should be about one fingers clearance between the rearmost shock bolt and the seat tube!

I think you will find that too low. I rode a Kona Stab last year that could be adjusted sub 12. I quickly decided that it was much too low. While the cornering and fire road handling are insane, it is useless in rocky stuff even though I'm used to low bikes.

I really love the fact that you can put the caliper inside of the swingarm, sure it probably doesn't change a thing, but it just looks nice to me...
