    yay so i just graduated, got a job and got a new bike!!
    since i traded my DH frame this summer i wanted another fullsquishy and here is what i ended up with! more beef than finess but i don't like things to break and i like jumps/drops. i can't wait to give it a real ride!!

    Pete I can’t believe you had to go out and buy the same bike as me. Hope you like it we should defiantly hit up whistler this summer.

    Nice ride! I was going to save up for a Scream this year, but I wanted to actually have a dual to ride this summer so I went low budget-style. You'll have fun with that!

    I've got a Scream... this is my understanding of how it should be sprung:
    It has approx. a 3:1 leverage ratio...
    therefore on mine I run either a 600 or 650# spring... because I'm a little over 200#'s in gear...

    i am running it in the 7" mode, don't plan on sticking it in the 8" mode really...though i could for now cause its oversprung...
