One of these days I'll actually get round to building this bad boy up, especially since I now live in a town that has tracks to use it on!

I would say the SS going to be a very hot model. I thought about putting one on order but I dont really use my normal 6.6 to its limits.

a slightly lower bb ( I think they were originally saying 0.4") and a little more slackness would be fine..
The bike would feel more stable but less playfull tho..bloody similar to a short travel Socom I would reckon!
