luv the gold hardware. how u feel about the 55? bullit21 just loaded his with a 55 and likes it.
its perfect, the jumps feels awesome, the fork semi lock out its great, reduce the travel for some dual slalom courses, or full travel for DH, Im taking the bike like it is now, to Snowshoe for some real Dh. its a great bike love it!!!

and.... Today!!! just got in my wife's Covert, a Marzocchi XC700ATA on front, and a Fox RP23 on the back, it will have some Inine wheels as soon I get some more cash, its going to be awesome here some pics of today...

I have been riding my roommates TOP the past few days since he broke his foot and today I decided to add another Transition to my lineup. Threw down on a Raw TOP, should be here in a week or so. It should compliment my blindside nicely. Now only if I would sell my Moment and replace it with a Covert I would have a nice family myself.

Roughly how much are your bottlerockets weighing in at? I'm thinking about getting a short travel bike for local races and all mountain riding and am weighing out my options. So right now i'm thinking about an enduro/sx trail (a friend has an sx trail weighing in at 33lbs) but i know a whole lot of people are in LoVe with their BRs. I'm basically getting ideas right now so i can see how hard i need to work this $ummer.

all depends on how much money you want to spend. I have seen BR's any where from 33 - 45 lbs. the majority of them build up between 37 and 41 depending on fork and shock. mine is sitting right around 37 with a fox 36 and dhx coil, tbc wheels diablos cranks bar and stem. not the lightest parts but the bike rides great.

bottle rockets should be in stock now, and blindsides are on the water from Taiwan. so mid to late April for those. I would preorder a BS if you want them, I know a lot of them are sold already. like the syrens they will pretty much be sold out before they get here.

late april for pretty much everything, you'll need to get a pre-order in really soon or you're gonna have to wait another month

I don't allow my bike to take glamor shots.




This bike has done nothing but treat me well. I've had it built up since I got the frame second hand in late feb. and I have yet to see any signs of it wanting to slow it down. It flows down the techy DH trails around here, as long as I choose a good line; it flies through the air with ease, as long as I have the balls to begin with. Oh yeah, and it also pedals uphill a couple miles every ride, too. The lockout on my roco tst-r makes the bike climb unbelievably well for what it is. I wuggles my bike.
