Holy Cow!!

Love the graphics:eekster: :eekster: hardware is so much nicer looking and the tubing is very sexy. Feels a bit lighter- will weigh both frames as a swap parts from 09 frame. The only problem is the new frame is a 31.6 post and the front derailleur has to be traditional or bottom swing derailleur. Got to get a der before the build is done. Lucky I had a Thomson post is my stash of goodies from my old Tomac Eli!!

Just got to hand it to Diamondback, completely different bike, no tube untouched. It is so smooth and really fast. Love it:thumbsup: This is the frame to have... All Sortie frames are the same too... But no framesets for sale this year from what I was told.

Tweaking it a little bit. 70mm Thomson and different saddle. Feels perfect!! The WTB Moto raptor 2.24 Kevlar bead; found on steal online for 20 bucks, great tire, hooks up well:thumbsup:

Man, I love your trails. That's exactly the kind of stuff I love riding. I'll be moving to Blacksburg VA at the end of summer, and that's close enought to TN for a weekend trip. I think I'll try to head out your way in the fall sometime.
