    Yeah I saw that too, if I had 1500 laying around I'd buy it for the parts and toss the frame. Sweet build.

    I ride a medium Prophet, and its just big enough that I can ride comfortably with the seat-post fully extended, but just small enough I can drop the seat and hit some jumps.

    I really want to drop the Lefty though. Its plenty strong, but it feels weird in the air, manually (or attempting to) and other more aggressive things.

    yeah i was going to build him up a double for this coming season then i saw this pop up and it is basically exactly what he needs.

    GR is a good dude...worked everything out great. I have actually seen this color scheme on his dh bike laying around at diablo a few years back, looks 10x better in person

    How does it feel?

    I'll be setting mine up practically the same way, so I'm sorta interested in how a team bike rides.

    It rides really well, my brother comes from a heavy bmx background so he likes his bikes very small and tight. I have ridden it a bit just manualling around and what not and it is snappy.

    Might be a handful in the rough stuff but he doesn’t care...

    'Team' bike is probably not relevant, all of the stuff on the bike is production except for the color of the wheels. One thing that has impressed me is the weight, and his parts spec isn’t so light...there is def room to lighten it up if need be.

    Zokes 4X, XT cranks, etc would probably be a start.

    My Prophet was overwhelmed by the DH runs at Diablo, just not enough travel, and the Lefty, while a great AM setup, is not suited for that kind of abuse.

    Watch the area right in front of the of pivot point on the swingarm, many owners are seeing cracks in those areas.

    Get some jump pics when you get a chance.

    yeah he really doesnt care that much about the wieight and it is at a good spot. College kid man...

    My brother is coming off of a DOC hardtail so i think anything will be a pretty good enhancement he was riding diablo a bunch last year on the hardtail.

    he is basically a 'slopestyle' type rider, jumps alot and isnt much into DH rocks
