A few people showed some interest in this after seeing it in the back ground of pictures of other bikes.

I got back in to riding early last year and wanted to build up a cheap FS bike. I bought the frame from CRC for £350 and built it up out of bits i had and slowly it has changed over the year in to what you see now.

Like a lot of people I'd never heard of Da Bomb before i bought the frame, but i read lots of reviews on the net and all seemed good.

Finally registered, and wanted to say thanks for this thread. It's one of few that I could find while looking up the Cherry Bomb that I was considering to buy.

I have now bought and built mine, although mine is the 2009 frame, and I've built up as a trail bike. I would show you pictures, but I need more posts before it will let me...
