That's lovely. I have a real soft spot for Santa Cruz bikes.

The colour is lovely too....almost as nice as trans blue.

Mine has the original 5th element one. I will be looking to upgrade it eventually as its heavy. Will be sticking with coil though.

Get a standard Van R and get it Push tuned. Flooks raves about that set up....my Push tuned Van RC was amazing. My Big Hit worked better with that than my Demo 9 did with a.Swinger 6 Way.

I doubt i will be spending that much. Push tune is about £100 right?
Id be looking at that for a shock!
Im one of these generally though - if it works it works.

Hmm looks like some dh tucked away in there. The problem im having is most of the hecklers that i have seen have been do it all bikes. Now i dont mind that but my do it all bike looks more attacky then the heckler!
