Liking it. Fork/geo looks right for it.

BETD link is a nice touch.

Blue ring next?

Not big on downhill so excuse my ignorance but should the front not have more gussetting around the headtube for such a hefty fork? And similarly, the extended rocker part to make the rear bigger travel, is the frame capable of withstanding that?

I do like it though, looks like a bike Arnie would ride!

the frame has some huge welds up front and the front of the frame is square tube, im guessing thats for stength. plus im not exactly a hardcore rider :wink: the rear plates give the option of running 6 or 7 inch of rear travel, 6 being the original travel setting. iv had no issues with it so far. the ride is awesome as you can ride over stumps, rocks and small children and not feel a thing :D

Good to hear! Its a trusted design. Hate the 2011 stinky's hydroforming swoopy rubbish.

Have you a thread for your cindercone?
