In My State There Is Non Of This Bikee. About The Front Shock I Know That The Xtd Is Somthing Amazing,but Much Pricy Then The Durado...well What Sould I Do??

Have you tested either of them out? The foes would run great with the curnutt and everything but it's sooo dang expensive. If I were you I'd go with the M3 and the Dorado, that'd definitely be a sweet race bike :D

if you like the m1, buy a frame and build it up with the best components. FSR design on the m1 is better then the VVP design on the m3. take a look and try other bikes like the specialized demo9, or the santa cruz v10--both are great bikes that i bet youll like.

Ive had an fsr bike (ih sgs)
a vpp bike(v10)
a single pivot bike(mono)

Buy the mono, the rear shock blows every other shock away

You could buy the newest and greatest and ya know what its prolly sh!t.

Now your prolly like well ya know the 5th and the swinger is the same technology as the curnutt. Well your right but BMW's and Landrovers have the same suspension technology in them too. 2 different applications: 2 different results.

For the front i say get a 888r or an avy dh ti8. Both are much cheaper than the foes curnutt front shock and preform very well

Why not just put a floating caliper kit on the stab and save like $5800?

Yeah...and then his "big dilema" is gonna be : ' Oh.. I have 5800bux and don't know what to do with it' :D


Very good idea BTW.

or you could just give me the Stab :D

If you want, you can usually get the manufacturer to send you out a bike to test, but it's usually pretty expensive.

If you don't want to do the floating brake on your stab, I'd say get the tried and true Foes-you cn't go wrong when the name on your downtube starts with F O E...

Spend the $175 on the brake therapy floating kit.I have a 2000 stab primo and I noticed
some brake jack,but compared to all the positives about the bike,i really dont mind.You
can also wait for the 05 stab supreme that will come with floating brake kit,but its
my understanding that you will have quite a wait,because they wont be available until
oct-nov of 05
