The team and the World Cup are totally identical other than color. Both frames use 6061 alloy and triple butted tubing. The Factory frame uses 6069 tubing with a different toptube butting profile, down tube butting profile, and chanistay alloy. It is slightly lighter weight, and built in the USA. For 06 the Sundays come with a DHX shock.

hope this helps!

Nope, frames are the same for 05 and 06! All the 06 link parts are interchangeable.

That soundss WAY too stiff of a spring, I'm 160 and was running a 275 w/ 60psi w/ the Progressive and 300 w/ 60psi with the Fox. Also make sure that the Singer is tuned for the Sunday, we run a much lighter compression tune than most other bikes, so if you didn't specify that when you got the shock, you might need to send it back to Manitou for the correct tune.

Travis,

Is there a specific tune for the Fox DHX or are you using it with the stock tune? What kind of improvements/ changes did you notice from the 5th? I have been thinking about getting one but I am not sure if it is worth the extra outlay in cash.
