cool deal Fred! I am glad you changed your color scheme and stopped copying me :)

also, cool on the shock...according to one "colleague" the CCDB isnt workin with the DW version...i assume cycling through the travel there were no issues?

also like the new e13 bash...thought about one of those myself for my new hardtail

and sweet on the full XTR kit...glad its finally being put on one of your bikes! ;)

cheers

no, I meant that a "colleague" tried it on the DW link, and it did not work...just wanted to make sure it works on the V1 is all which is why i asked. my dumb friend slapped it on only to realize at full travel, on the DW, there is contact :(

Thanks guys,

Great looking Sultan. Let us know how that shock feels after the RP23.
I have to first say thanks to my good friend Fred (Sane Fred) but don't let him fool ya, he might "Sane" compared to me BUT still quite crazy in his own way...:D One of the best friends anyone could ever ask for..And he just happens to be the best wrench in New England ( so says Dirt Rag Mag.) Also CFo has played a huge part in this make over as the FULL XTR group-O came from him.( Thanks bro.;) ) Unlike what is said around these parts and many other parts for that matter, Fo has proven himself to be a great guy and has also fallen into good friend status..(bare in mind I've know Sane Fred for 15+ years). And I know this isn't a DW-Sultan but it is a Turner and it's a darn good one at that..This bike first went together last Oct. with a WB-135 and everything else that was in the picture with the white Spinergy's. I went with the 120 Reba ( in black.:D ) about two weeks later and it was the best thing I could of done for this bike or so I thought. But this all changed when that pain in the a$$ Miles would not stop nagging me.:D Yes of course I'm kidding, thanks Miles...:thumbsup: The CCDB did in fact make this a night and day ride, as the full XTR was just the iceing on the cake..As for the new e-13 bash guard and the all black Spinergy's well that was just something I wanted to do to change up the look of this bike. I also went with a set of Kenda Nevagals which replaced Rampages and this too as proven to be a great change. They seem to just hook up much better here on our NE style trails. Not quite as good as most here with details as to how a bike rides but, the CCDB just really makes the bike stick and track WAY better than the stock RP23. It also feels to have a deeper, more plush feel to it's travel..She know just feels "Complete" In fact she had me at "CCDB" :D Anyway as I've said many times sence the DW-Sultan has dropped I'd be a liar if I didn't say I would love to own one. But with the way my TNT Sultan rides, and don't EVEN get me started on how she looks (dare I say BEST looking TNT Sultan?) I just don't see a DW-Sultan in the cards for me @ this time..And with me working with Banshee on a 5' 29er Rune /Prye I don't know that it will ever NEED to be...Thanks guys........CF.

Alright, explain the black spokes :eek:ut: Did CF go at it with a Sharpie :)
Ha Ha don't put it past me as I've done stranger thing with a sharpie and hockey tape in the past..( to a bike that is)...No AL29er not a sharpie rather just a new set of Spinergys.........CF.

That is just a little bit scary.

I knew the Sultan/CCDB combo was something special, but didn't expect it to turn CRAZY FRED into Jerry Maguire. :eek:

Looks great, and I know it rides at least as good as it looks! :thumbsup:
