Me: sketch and somewhat haggard 6' tall, 210 lb DH rider, the bike is weapon of choice for lift assisted and shuttled DH only, no freeriding other than lite stuff. Lots of long days at the bike park, she'll see lots of miles on her in 2009. This is a build made from bits and pieces and a rip down of a 2007 VP Free....

Frame size: Medium
Frame colour: Midnight blue
Dropouts: '09 (raises the BB)
Shock: Manitou Revox with 400 lb steel spring
Fork: '08 888 RC2 1 1.8"
Stem: Integrated Marz.
Headset: FSA cartridge 1.5" to 1.1/8"
Brakes: '07 Avid Codes with 203mm rotors F+R
Shifters: X9
Hubs: DT Swiss 340's (rear is 150mm & 12mm axle)
Rims: '08 Mavic 729's
Spokes: DT Swiss
Rubber: Michelin DH 24 F+R
Saddle: Selle Italia Max Flite white 300g
Seatpost: Thompson Elite
Seat clamp: Hope gold
Pedals: Straitline white
Grips: Sunline lockon white fatties
Bars: Raceface Diabolous
BB/Cranks: '09 Saint 170mm 38T ring

Thoughts...? Bearing in mind after the frame purchase I'm going to be on a budget and this will have to make do til the end of next season. At that time I'll grab some new '09 white Codes and run blue Goodridge hoses. Probably bling her out with some white bars too.

Any ballpark guesses as to the weight?

Looks good to me, 2 things personally....
I'd probably say goodbye to that headset, as it won't last long, only headset i've ever trusted is Cris King or Hope at a push. My previous FSA, Tioga etc have been dogsh1t!

And as a totally personal thing; i really don't like Raceface stuff, cosmetically, (i'm sure it works as good as any!?) so i'd grab some Easton EA70's, i love mine!!

No idea about weight i'm afraid, i have an SS built to 36lbs so can't compare really!

Can't wait to see pics!
