    It will take a while to build, but it should turn out nice.

    Nice - you will for sure love the Sunday. I was on a US frame kit this year and its the best bike I have ever had. I will be on 2006 US frame this year when my 2005 frame is sold.

    Some advice: Get 165mm steel cranks and 36T chainguide its a low BB.

    Nice, Dan. I LOVE the color of those frames. I'm actually thinking of having my 7point re-powdercoated in a similar color.

    there's a man from chattanooga who comes up here to the rock on occasion on that same bike and color. a very nice ride indeed. i think there's been some issues with the top shock bolts, and i do believe that folks are using the bottom bolts on the top mount too. some one let him know if i'm mistaken.

    Looking sick Dan! If the guy who you got it from did any wet weather riding check out the bearings before you build her up. After a horribly rainy/snowy collegiate season I found most of mine had seized. I was able to clean each one and repack them. Just something to check out while you've got the frame partless.

    Hey, mine looked like that once too!
    I have no doubts that you will grow to love that bike (once you get used to the ultra low bb). The more I ride mine, the farther I fall in love.

    Two things to check while you've got it apart:

    1) I recommend you check those shock pins. It's almost impossible to tell from the pics, but to my squinted eyes it looks like the top shock pin was replaced with a solid bolt, washers and a locknut. This was a common fix untill IH started handing out the revised versions like candy. You'll need the new tight-tolerance shock bushings too. Both are available from IH.
    (this is all assuming you don't already have them).

    2) Do you know if the prev. owner had the shock re-valved?
    A lot of sunday's came with improper valving on the 5ths. Progressive was doing warranty re-valves for free. This will make a huge difference in the ride quality. Check with the prev. owner to be sure.

    I hope my ramblings make sense...:stupid:

    Anyone know what size seatpost the frame takes off the top of their head? I was told 31.6, but my seatpost comes no where near fitting, im guessing 30.9 or something like that?

    I'm pretty sure it takes a 30.0 diameter.

    Is it just looks, or is the Sunday suspension a lot like the Balfa 2-Step DH?

    I have yet to ride a Sunday, but I've ridden a 7.5 and it was sweet. That thing will rock.

    It's a 30.0 post size.
    You also need an 83mm shell bb. Mine is an FSA 83/133 and works fine. Supposedly your supposed to run an 83/128, but I couldn't find one.

    Similar in that the dw-link has a full floating rear end. Just like a Balfa 2-step, or a Karpiel, or a VPP-SantaCruz, or a VPP-Intense, or a Giant Maestro, or a Canfield (I'm sure there are more).

    I've ridden four of these and they all feel completely different. From pedaling to cornering to bump absorbtion, it's like night and day.

    Im now thinking about a 40, I actually plan to keep ths bike more then 1 season, I have done my research on it and it was the best choice, so putting a little money into it never hurt.

    If anyone knows of any for sale around $700 range, let me know, I'll even take an R.
