:eh:


That must be a latter one with it being horst link. Its not bad apart from the colour!!

If you bought and stripped the parts off, sold them it could be a cheap frame.

I have a lot of the bits to build a dh bike up.

Not sure if I could live with the green though.

Man that M3's nice. My friends cousin owns it now, has some 888 world cups on it now.

And that 6.6 SS looks awesome! Would go so mint with my setup, if only (lots of) money grew on trees.. :satan:

Still on the hunt for a suitable rear coil shock to replace the DHXair...

Only seen one other 6.6 with the Travis forks - they are noticably taller than the AM1s I was running, but feel 10 times better :thumbsup:

Not really a "trail" bike as it is, although it's around the 33 pound mark - was a bee's dick over 31 with the AM1s, but IMO it's just a number - still climbs very well considering, and the grin on my dial is even larger on the way down now :D

Here's an update, new wheels for my baby....

Dt Swiss 5.1 rims laced with DT Double Buttes Spokes to Hope Pro II hubs. Currently QR in the front with a 10mm through axle in the back.

Any thoughts on which 20mm front forks I should be on the look out for to replace the Marz AM2's I currently have on there?

NOICE!!

I am super happy with my Pace forks, the coil fork's weight is the same as Fox 32 Talas, and they can be adjusted to be 14mm higher, which is nice..

They are available in 20mm thru axle too.

Here is my wee beastie before today's ride.. :thumbsup:

What kind of riding are you doing? I was using AM1s on the 6.6 for a while, and they were very good for general trail riding. :thumbsup:

Pretty much that, general trail riding, as much up as down (or should that read earning my downhills by riding up them...)

Have been looking at Pikes, the Pace RC40's look the business but at $1600... Well may be a bit steep at the moment! Thought about Fox however the 36 is a bit long for me, and it would be good if the 32's came with a 20mm axle.

Anyway I'll continue looking, get my ducks in a row and pick up something before summer hits with a vengance.

If you're after something with a bit more travel and alot more adjustability, the Marzo AM1 might be just the ticket - about 100g heavier than 06 36 TALAS, but more travel and more adjustments :thumbsup:
