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!!

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!

see my post...first ride on it today, its heavy (duh), oversprung for my skinny butt and needs some lovin' (and a diet...)
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...
