Yeah, that's true... he's a young'n, so I sort of assumed he wasn't around here when he was 10, but I could very well be wrong though. Oh well. I felt sort of flamy then, so I'm just gonna leave... I have nothing to contribute to this thread yet
It's a 3.0 and yes it is too big and heavy. I had it lying around so I figured I'd try it out for one race, bad idea slow as hell. I usually run a 24" 2.7 Highroller on the rear. I use the bike to ride/race DH.
Heres my IH Yakuza.. 1st bike ive owned in almost 10 yrs. started out with something cheap to see if i still liked riding. Just threw on the 03 slider tpc with DT hub. Im diggin the stiffness of the dual crown, I think its fitting for the hardtail. So far its a perty kick as all around bike, mostly urban and jumping. Added the e 13 srs too. 8" hayes mechs, gonna swap shifter and levers soon. Ill upgrade as I see needed. I plan on getting one of the new Soul Cycle's thats coming out soon.
the fork is a sherman jumper.
i bought it from a friend who i believe got it straight from manitou,
so he was able to get the uncommon grey lowers.
i used to consider myself a zokie man,
but this fork feels pretty great.
