and wait, and wait.... ;)

Man is this thing hot, I love the color and I'm almost scared to scratch it, almost. Sorry only one pic but you guys have seen enough of these frames and the color is showing really well in the photo so your gonna have to wait till I get it built for more shots, and hopefully some action pics Sun.

I want to thank Larry and the Turner guys for busting their butts getting it to me on this holiday week so I could have it for this weekend, Turner shipped it overnight for me and Larry was the instigator so thanks again guys!

Oh yeah, please give me some baseline settings to go by with the DHX, I weigh 200 even and it has a 600lb spring, 30% sag right?
Thanks

Very nice. I also spy a new set of juicys with dangerboy levers. The new lever/caliper color looks good.

30% sag sounds good. I usually ran around 120 psi in the boost chamber and had the BO knob set at or close to the middle line.

Thanks SC, yeah I bought a set of the new Juicy's and DB levers, never tried the levers but they look cool :) The brakes are grey and have a metal pad contact adjuster, they also have a split perch and round rotors this year, all for a very cheap price.

Love the color.
Rick, I'll drop you a line. Giving a noon lecture down in CO Springs either one or two weeks from Monday. Would love to stick around and get a ride in that afternoon.

Beautiful!
Congrats man. The first time you throw a leg over that you'll be having way too much fun to worry about scratching it.

Beautiful, I put clear vinyl on mine which makes me feel a little better when I hear the Arizona rocks bouncing off the frame.

Before I sent my shock off to PUSH I had the sag set with just 2 full turns of preload. Had to have a 700lbs spring to achieve that but I'm a heavy guy. Do many of you run more preload or is 2 turns common?

TSW, when talking to Darren the other day he stated you emailed him about the PUSH contact thread I started, thanks.

No worries. Fortunately I have the PUSH equivalent of the Batphone at my disposal.
Glad to have been of help. I'm sure you'll dig the mods.

Should be here middle part of the week. Not to high-jack this thread any, comments on my sag question. I'm just curious what kind of preload others are setting the shock at.

I was just messin on the wait, it was pretty long though :) I'm an impatient type by nature

Might have to ride with the girls, but an epic sounds better!!

Thanks John, the flash brought out the color and it looks like that in the sun but it's actually darker in person, I like it.

Gawd, I love that color. It actually makes me what to build a 5 pack even though I know it's not wise.

I was thinking of having the spot painted the granny apple green this winter, but after seeing yours, I may have to make a change to your shade. It looks soo sweet!

Here was mine a few months back in 5" mode. I have have replaced the 5" rockers with the 6" models. Upgraded to the Atlas cranks and put the Z1 FR back to 6" mode also. Shock is at Push for their update and hope to have it back next week. Also changed the 817 rims to 823's and running tubeless Maxxis now. Little small for a 2.35 but I really like them for our AZ trials.

someone was saying that there was a problem with that color?

I think it looks great.

the bronze (was it supposed to be grey?) looks great too.
