    Junk.... Post up a ride report if youre taking her out.

    My D7 is almost done... I got something special in the works for my wheels.

    Yeah, that thing sucks. You should just send it off to me and I'll melt it down for scrap metal.

    Could you do a review/comparison to the old one?

    i've taken it out once but it was snowy and i didn't have the suspension set up. The main difference is that it is a lot slacker than the old one

    That's quite a collection of tubes you've got there.

    my new bike came with ea50 low rise bars that are super wide, but have almost no sweep. looks like yours are pretty similar. i haven't put in enough time to decide if this setup is what i want do dh but it certainly feels weird for now. do you like yours?

    You should be banned for posting that. Don't trash the downhill forum. That downtube curve by the BB is cool though. Maybe I should do that with all my old tubes.

    No - I've had mine for nearly a month now and have seen several others go through the shop I ride for. Having no idea how these things work, I can't give you a good explanation as to why this is though.
