its a diamondback coil ex frame. had to get the frame after i crashed my i drive and then snapped my i drive. couldnt really afford much at the time. have since snapped the rear swingarm and had to replace it, it used to be a much better looking black (matched front). the only stock parts are seatpost and headset (internal). its a 16'' frame, nice and easy to throw around! got da bomb rims on deore hubs, hayes hfx 9 brakes (now all black). kona DH bars, planet x stem. marzocchi mx comps. fox float (recently changed from a vanilla). blackspire chain device although im running a 32t chainring! tioga fs100 tires, 2.3s. dmr v8s, truvativ hussefelt cranks. truvativ gigapipe bb.

does anyone have ano red stanchion caps to go on my forks? i miss them so much and cant buy them anywhere, i have bought one black one but theyre £8 so i havent got round to replacing the other. let me know if you have some

cheers
josh

thank you :D :D
yes it is heavy, very heavy (and your trek is very light!)

i can throw it around easy enough so its no bother but of course i wouldnt mind lightening it up, but like i said, no big issue of mine.

oh the red jockey wheel (here i go again :lol: )

http://www.allez-bid.com/store/2010_GUB_Bearing_Jockey_Wheel_JY_C11S_11T?keyword=jockey
9cheap turner stuff on here etc. too)

worked out to about £6 for one and i had some discount
only 2g heavier than the kcnc ones and 80% cheaper!
8)
so smooth
