just wondering how much abuse the 6.6 can take?
would it stand up to heavy freeride and downhill duties?

Yes, to an extent

I won a DH last weekend on mine, granted it's more of a Super D course, but does have some hellacious rocks and a couple drops. for some photos of T Money jumping the big double follow this link, look on page 3 of the Eureka Springs event, he's the guy wearing the red jersey, and Dee Max.http://lisamariephotos.tripod.com. The gap is about 21 feet.

If you are still looking to get that one-bike, the 6.6 might be your ticket,
but if you're planning to go big, i suggest you go for the Uzzi.
I did, and I am very happy with it (although it made some of the technical parts too easy.. ;) )

I'm with Kidwoo on this one. I own a 6.6 and it's a phenomenal bike, but not up to the task of heavy duty freeride and DH - at least not as I define it.

Get the Uzzi you can build it solid and light, mine weighs about 32.5 right now and handles everything I throw at it.
Holy sh**!!!! :eek: How did you get it so light?

Time get the scale re-calibrated;)
My 6.6 weighs 32.5 with a mid to light build and the Uzzi frame alone weighs almost 3 pounds more than the 6.6.

Speed holes.

If I put the parts from my 6.6 on my uzzi, I'm sure it would be close to 33lbs.

It would fall apart the first ride down anything interesting but it would be light.

That's an odd beast you have there. All those parts would be at home on a 5.5.
