Very nice project with a stunning color.

BTW: don't you think that the F4BLT is too much for the Amplifier ?

The amp b2 and the mongoose amplifier are the same bike. Mongoose bought them from amp research and branded them as the amplifier under amp's licence

I agree with you, it's an awesome fork but consider that it has 8 cm. of damping while the original for this frame was less than 5 cm..
But this is just my opinion. :D

I ride it pretty agressively so the extra damping suits me nicely :)
Havent had any issues with it so far.

Looking very cool in fluoro! Would look amazing with black parts. Had an AMP B3, B4 and a B5 BITD, never owned a B2 though but always loved the twin down tubes.

Great effort, is coming along a treat

The twin downtubes where a pain to paint strip.. Very tight areas.

Update: New decals arrived today from Gil_M :) Damn they look good!
Now the letters in the main logo stay blue (instead of green):)

Next up, applying decals and then a clearcoat. Then Assembly :)
