Gonna be cool buddy :D Race face cranks would look the bawz with that rocker :) good luck finding green though. Tell me is the offset of those forks adjustable? They seem to tuck back a bit or it could just be the pic. Anyway your gonna need a van to bring all your bikes to the next meet :)

Cool bike and a sweet build! 8)
I was tempted this frame when it was on ebay and then again when jimjim had it for sale! :lol: You've done it justice!

The only thing I'm not sure of is the additional stickers (Fox, FMF, Smith?), which is strange because I usually a fan of the stickered-up 'team' look. I just think they look a bit distracting on this bike, to me World Force and VR1 should be the heros.

Hello Big.eck, excuse me, I'm building a bike blog, and I am adding the best downhill and freeride bike rebuilt, choose bikes that do not have all or any component manufactured, the more ingeniously armed and look cool and while older ones are better, your bike I liked, and I would like to publish it in my blog, could you share me the description of all the components that have your bike, and the experience you had to put it together? greetings.
