    The bike it tits. Tomorrow morning she gets dirty! Still waiting on Fox to get me my 40, but other than that this it the build.

    PS. no idea on weight, I'm guessing 40; could be less, could be more.

    It's the standard, just what came with them. They are crazy sticky, and I couldn't imagine running sharp pins anyways. I even left out the back middle row of pins because they're grippy enough as is.

    The Wellgo's held out for how light they were. But I'd say only half the pins survived.... The Straitlines are a solid feeling pedal though, I think I'll have a hard time destroying these.

    i just got mine the other day...they seem a bit dry, but they are self lubricating so maybe they just need a ride or two to smooth out?

    mmmm looks good. Is that a Vivid I spot on the rear? You also seem to be a big fan of Mr. Daniels.

    Haha, yes. I'm a fan of Mr. Daniels. So much so I went and got "Old No. 7" tattooed on the inside of my lip when I was 17....
    And yeah, it's a Vivid. I'm loving that shock.

    Large. I bit tighter than my last bike but I think it'll be an advantage. It's a really comfy fit for me at 6'1"ish.

    I have the same frame and I'm the same height. You're gonna love it. The fit is perfect.

    Oh crud... I didn't even realize they added a national that weekend... or I just missed it while planning. Um, I dunno, this race wasn't planned but I'm gonna try and make it happen. If so you'll see me there!

    Its just a small local deal. But they are doing pro and semi pro payback to the top 3 I think! The DH is SUNDAY and DS is SATURDAY. I will be at OTTER also but there are way to many people there although that bike will stand out.

    Thanks man. We're getting a crew together to hit Laguna this coming Sat. I know you're semi close so if you'd like a bit of tour guiding hit me up. It's a must hit place around these parts!
