    So I made a few changes to the BR over the winter since I was off the bike due to a shoulder surgery. Now the question is: Have I overblinged (or overblung) the bike? You be the judge...

    It really depends. How much is unblung weight vs. blung weight. Unblung weight will cause your suspension to move in a much more impressive way and blung weight will not be as noticeable by others checking out your bling.

    True, but the standard spring does match the rest of the bike well.

    Not where I'd like
    dont look like a hack

    put the gold bearing caps on the main pivot bolts as well

    and ODI makes limited edition gold colored ruffian grips

    also, route your rear disc tubing through the forward shock mounting plates, it will clean up the look a bit

    otherwise, rockin

    dude a touch of gold is fine but stop...some of these bikes belong on a fashion runway not a dh trail...

    it looks awesome as is. I agree take the fox stickers off and you are officially OGT

    I would leave the fox stickers, gold bar end caps and headset spacers would be cool also.

    Dang, you guys are demanding. She rides pretty good right now so I'll probably leave her as is for a while. Any more bling and I might blind nearby riders...

    Since you are trying to be considerate, some blue Industry 9 hubs and spokes so I can be reminded of my school when we ride.
