you getting the Ti spring for it?

what made you choose Avy vs. an Air DHX to match the air fork ?? Does RS have an air shock available yet ??

i was very very tempted to get the DHX air becasue i want a light weight bike...but after seeing that i will need to get a new lower link cuz the 05 lower link wont fit a DHX air..its a bit of a hassle...and also i heard that its very hard to adjust the shock when u got it on...so that sorta pulled me back from getting it...and if i bought the DHX air over here in Australia + tjhe lower link..it equals the price of an avy chubie...so there u go

nice mate, the WC looks good. shame your not taking advantage of the drop crown, but each to his own. ive got the 06' lower link/frame, so ill take one for the team and whack a DHX Air on it soon.

as for the frame kits, ive seen a few around in australia, the new white ones look hot. the colours they come in this year seem to be a big improvement. ive seen red, black, yellow, white and blue so far.

wats the difference between the flat crown and the drop crown i ahve on now? wat are the benefits of using the flat crown? cuz the forks just came with it...drop crown is the one i ahve on yeh? and craig and dave have been working on tuning the avy for the sundays...and dave had a chubie on his sunday for awhile and he absolutely loved it...i think..so yeah...

thanks

Take all the precautions and you should be fine. Check frequently for cracks, do not overtighten stem/brakes/grips/shifters (Use torque wrench.)

Bike looks sick dude.
