    I have to thank Luke Snyder for giving me such a great deal on the bike.
    Also where can i get longer pins for the Crankbros. 50/50's?

    Sweet.....for longer pins, you can just go to the hardware store and find longer set screws.....

    When I opened it up, I thought that the FSR was your "new" DH bike. Then I saw the Foes, which is a pretty good upgrade. Nice bike for sure!

    That's very nice. I remember when I got my first real DH bike, what a difference.

    Clean your basement, it is a ****hole.

    I have no idea where I am
    I had an FSR with the travel upgrade as well.

    You're going to notice a huge difference, enjoy.

    If I remember you correctly you're pretty small so you're going to have your hands full with that bike, but it'll be fun.
