    Hate to tell you,

    I got those rims, and they are going on those hubs/spokes for next season, in black though.

    I like your set-up. :clapping:

    Those wheels look flexy....kidding, those are awesome. Probably the only application of ti spokes that would probably work due to their diameter...bet they werent cheap, i know a set of ti spokes for one wheel of regular spokes run almost $100 cost

    so if we can ask what in the world is so special about the internals of those hubs. i mean honestly they cant really improve much upon the design they have now, and they already have the quickest engagement of any hub in the world. ohh and those are not 831's it states very clearly on the rim there deemaxes. sorry that would be the smart ass comming out in me.

    all in all very hot looking bike bro, and i hope my new one looks as good.:clapping:

    He clearly states that they are TI, just because they dont make them standard doesnt mean they dont make them

    I know it's probably an illusion or something but that seatpost looks like it's 15mm or something. :twitch:

    That's why I asked, but think about a smaller company making something like TI spokes, which are already available.

    31mm wide rims are huge, so I figured I would ask. It doesnt seem like Mavic would make a one off thing like that. I9 may though

    Nice bike. If those are really ti spokes, I'm interested to know more. Sure they're not ano red al?

    Eh? I've been using 31mm wide rims for pure XC for the last five years. And isn't that about average size for a DH rim? In fact, I'm thinking about picking up some 35mm wide rims for XC next year.

    lets see some pictures of you riding.... dosent have to be on that bike but just a bike in general... for a 15 y/o you must be pretty damn good to be riding that setup... or have rich parents.

    Guys, lay back on the kid. He's really pumped about racing and this coming year he's got plans to get out and do some heavy traveling. Age doesn't matter, nor does skill level actually. He wants to become a good fast racer, and having a solid bike is part of that.

    Don't even start about him being 15 and having a nice bike. Have any of you guys ever raced MX? It is sickening, 8 year olds having 6 different motorcycles, etc...

    The kid is 15 and has a amazing bike. Besides a little bit of envy I am happy for the kid. The only issue for me is if he doesn't ride it. By the way Dee Max rims are really 823 rims with fewer holes drilled in them for the lower spoke count deemax rims require those 831s are really 823's.
