Here's a cross post from the 29er forum. Figured it was Ventana porn so it deserved to be here too!;)

Here's a bike I just finished up for a fellow and figured you'd all here on the 29er board would appreciate.
He's 6'7" and has been searching for a proper fitting mountain bike for the past 20 years. The time has come for a fully fitted rig. Needless to say he's very happy. After his initial spin around the block he was stoked. Can't wait to get it back to Tahoe and hit the snow melt runoff perfect dirt.

Here's a few pictures.

1: Sideshot of the bike looken kinda big, cause at 25" it is!
2: A bit of a frontal shot showing off that cool headbadge.
3. And finally the happy customer, making the big bike look normal.

Sweet , like you say photos just don't seem to capture how nice the customs or even the standard powdercoats look in person ! Are those tires actually Panaracer Rampages or are they offering another style 2.35 wide 29er tire ? TIG.

Yup. Rampages come in 29x2.35".
MAn, those tyres are very tasty looking. Makes me wish I had a 29er bike to throw them on just so I could go and test them out myself. They have a good lug pattern that is open, but the lugs are shaped for a fairly smooth rolling tyre too. Good amount of air volume as well for some extra cush.
