    the goodridge hoses will put the finishing touch on it, then at least nobody will want to steal it i guess. the wheels turned out great, i like pretty bikes though so i'd go with red nipples i think. enjoy the single ply prowlers in the rocks though, make sure you go tubeless at least.

    Awesome bike. I love the lines... not so much the colors...but that's personal preference.

    I'd paint the lowers orange or get an orange z1, but then it wouldn't be ugly. :D Nice bike!

    What are the specs on that frame? Travel, weight, geometry?

    How do you think it compares to the Intense Slopestyle?

    the small has a 16 inch seattube, a 21 inch TT, and a 14 inch BB height. HA =66.5 w/ a 160mm fork. i have a 180, so its more like 65.5.

    the frame w/ DHX weighs 8.5 lbs.

    i know nothing about the intense SS other than it looks cool.

    and thanks for the props. just to remind you, i am not colorblind and am indeed going for the ugliest bike possible.
