    Hello !! Finally I get my PDC that i bought to Freakrock ... I'm very very happy because the bike is really amazing ! The weight and the perfomance is totally different from my old dh comp that i had...

    Well , here some pictures, i already bought a short cage x9 sram and now i hope i could change the shock...

    Thanks to Roberto (freakrock) and to Udi for everything !

    same type of design as the JEDI f1 and the new BANSHEE. The wheel path is just slightly different.

    I like it.

    nice bike. they seem to be surprisingly durable as well - esp for a 1st run, lightweight frame. someone needs to kick kyle in the ass & get him building again.

    small company that hasn't been building much lately. looks like pdcracing.com is still not ready for the public.

    i love the 8to5, it is so sexy and just looks fast. nice rig!

    nice bike npdh!! i think i am feeling some regret not getting one when i had the chance a few years back. :(

    did he ever get round to building the new version which dont have the silly o rings on the pivots? i guess same goes for the solaris?

    not that i know of, unfortunately. with the tweaks he was proposing, it would have been near perfect. for a young guy's first foray into bike manufacturing it was an impressive debut. hope he can make another go of it.

    the 825 frame has been amazing from what i hear. the dh-1 on the other hand has had its problems. the links and the pully bent.

    over summer i just put one frame back together after being laying around for a while. had to use a few parts from the other frame but its a working frame. didn't have the time to build it up and ride it tho.

    Why's your seat at that weird angle? :busted:

    Seats should point at the stem!!

    Nice bike otherwise :biggrin:

    Very nice... I've always like that frame. I like the stem too, very snazzy! ;)

    Sure beats looking at pictures of another Sunday
