    I got it on ebay. It's an SS 15". I know someone who anodizes, so if I can later, I will get it anodized blue or orange. I think orange w/ blue parts would be cool.


    Before I got the frame, I was trying to get an idea of what it would look like.

    how come these thangs have the footpads so far over the back "wheel"? I watched the video on the site and they kept landing jumps in manuals. It would be like trying to hit a jump on your BMX while standing on the rear pegs. :dead:

    Don't forget to use some sort of ski' retention to keep your ski's flat when airing that thing out if you don't the 1st time you spike a ski in the snow on a landing you'll know why I say this:help: :eek: Thats what the bungees on my bike are for and the Xbike mounts use sprung axles to keep the ski's level

    Don't post to it but check this old Mtbr thread for good info on building the mounts and use of the bungees for leveling your ski's I have also changed the length of my ski's this year to 109cm for a total bike length of 7 1/2 feet and it works much better in deep powder and is so friggen fast

    Are you going to powder coat them. That would be a good idea.

    :stupid: Hella fun on anything.

    And to answer Chomps, the placement of the platform is for handling purposes and (I might just be used to it) it doesn't seem weird in the air. You can land like you would any bike -- the people in the video just got into the habit of landing in a "manual", I guess.
