More like fudgescicle brown......why in the world did they choose brown?El Chingon said:Now what bike will those polished turds adorn? I actually got to ride an Ellsworth Moment with a DHX on it a couple of weeks ago, and as much as I wanted to not like the DHX, I couldn't help but see the light. It felt much better than my 5ths.
I'm curious as to the rest of the build. I know you said it was going to be more or less a what Weir was using at one point, but I haven't seen a build list from his bike.Photo-John said:I'm building up a light VP-Free. The DHX is a shorter eye-to-eye than normal to lower the bottom bracket and keep the geometry correct with the 36. I'll be getting the ti spring for it, too.
The Moment DHX combo is awesome. I rode one at the Interbike Dirt Demo and it ruled on the downhill. The harder I rode it, the better it worked. I really wanted to get a Moment but since I can build up the VP-Free so light (under 35 pounds) and have more travel, I went with it instead. And come summer, I might get a regular-stroke shock and a 888 for Whistler and Northstar.

You are putting a 8.5 x 2.5 (215x63mm) shock on it right?Photo-John said:Look what I done got
Now someone buy my Dare so I can pay for this stuff!
Oh, ok... I haven't seen their setups yet but am interested. Do you have a list of what they are using?Photo-John said:Rob-
You're thinking about this a lot harder than I am. I'm copying what Forrest and Weir have done. They say it works great and who am I to argue? We'll see how it works when it's done.
