I love the first pic.

 

 

 

I still want to know why why they mount the rear shock the way they do. Most other manufacturers mount it the other way around.

Thanks smiley1.gif It's easier to get to the pro pedal lever that way... I think... but its a real PITA to get the valve cap off.droo2009-05-13 03:09:57

Well spotted... not sure how you got that based on colour, as far as I know it's the only red one made smiley16.gif

Would love one of those beasts....not long now....

I've been running SRAM / Shimano for over two years and I've never an issue.

Bike looks killer. Well done. Roco Mofo will be out in Tokai this weekend if you guys wanna do a Morewood convention.

Haven't got it near a scale yet, but guessing around 15 kg. Hefty, but on these machines it's not that noticeable. Extra leg strength is a fair tradeoff for 5" of super plush travel. The SRAM shifters are brilliant, they kick Shimano ass... took her for a spin last night but ran out of light before I hit any singletrack, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the rain holds off this evening.

 

 

 

@ Crow - Thanks dude. Will be in Tokai Sunday morning (and probably Friday arvi too) - 3 of us on Morewoods so far, so a convention of note it will be... will let you know what time when the plans have been made.
