    Very nice build. Wonder why 41lbs. v10 isn't heavy and the setup seems light(4.06kg frame but 888 fork and im 40.1 with some similar parts and heavy chainD).

    Goodridge are great. I'm thinking on getting them for my formulas (used some on my gustavs - crazy stopping)

    Completely changed the bike, made it so much better...Tracks better, grips better and each click will make a difference..

    but the dhx stock is still good

    Push makes all the difference in the world. I am friends with a few of the mechanics there and the difference is night and day. Tracks better, sits better in there travel, uses its travel more efficiently

    Did PUSH hook you up with the ti spring? Was thinking of sending mine ('07 V10) as well.
    My small weighs in at 40lbs. stock.

    Yeah get the proper fixing for that hose - that's offensive. :busted:

    Build looks great - perfect proper DH setup; no weight weenie xc stuff but nothing that weighs more than it should. Sorted.
