Freaking beautiful bike! Is there any way you could take a picture of the tire/seat tube clearance at full compression with the shorter shock?

Thanks!

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!!! Man, that thing is delicious.... BUT, What's with the choice of bars? JK-- nothing wrong with Azonic bars.

Why'd you think you'd get flamed for them?

You can get replacement bore caps in various colors.

That is one beautiful bike, light too.
you can get replacement bore caps like XSL_WiLL says or if getting a new set you can order them in different colors.

Well, they are carbon bars on a FR bike after all... still contemplating on putting something on there a little more duty worthy.

Thanks guys for all the complements, can't wait to ride tonight after work!

question... y do u want a more powerful brake in the front... wouldnt u want something more powerfull behind?
The quickest and most efficient way to stop is with the front brake. The back brake locks up super quick and just drags the wheel.

and to matt, carbon is stronger, but carbon is also more brittle. If it cracks and you don't realize it, the next big hit you take, you're gonna smash your face into your stem. Bend before break is a good policy.
