    Yep, here it is, built up in all its glory. Being that i work in a shop, i could not bear to leave it stock. So far, it rides like a dream, its so stable that it is rediculous. Ill be racing it this season too.



    The brake lever is no longer bent up on the left, as i fixed the master cylinder that came screwed up from ironhorse.

    The full specs on it:
    2005 Ironhorse Yakuza Kamichu frame
    2004 Marz. shivers, limited race edition
    E13 supercharger bashguard
    Truvativ Hussefelt crankset
    Mavic EX325 rims
    Full Sram X9 drivetrain
    New PG990 cassette, the red anno one.
    WTB shadow V saddle
    FSA seatpost
    B37 sealed bearing version
    Michelin DHcomp 2.8" front tire
    Maxxis highroller 2.5 rear

    Tell me what youall think :D

    oh god, its the defination of a beast, i believe it weighs 46 LBS. I didn't really care about weight when i built it, and it shows. It has the stock 5th element rear, it rides nice, but i might upgrade it to a DHX coil. I hear those are the pimp sauce on friday nights.

    I work at sport chalet, but i pro dealed it through sport chalet. I did not buy it there, that would have cost a lot more. And i love the way the shiver rides, it is incredible.
