Those are surprisingly good bikes, IMHO. And when you put a better rear shock on them, they're very good.

Sweet bike, agree change the rear shock.
i really dont see that it is nessecary to change it, its a fox vanilla r so i think it will hold up for a while, plus i am only 15 and i pay for all of my stuff, and i dont have a job so it is hard to throw down the 300 plus for a new rear shock

If your not loosing the chain it wouldnt hurt to upgrade the shock over adding a guide. The bike looks awsome dont get me wrong, i understand money dont grow on trees. If i was 15 & had that bike i would be stoked & the heck what people say.

i see what your saying, yeah i would get a shock over the chainguide but im buying the e13 srs off from a friend for 40 bucks, u cant beat that, but if i wasnt getting the chain guide for 40 bucks i definetly would get a shock.

it was one of those Fusion shocks that come on some of those models. I'd agree...the Fox R is a quite decent shock. That bike does improve with a stable platform model. I really like mine. And please...no unkind comments about the uncut steerer. It's the only pic I have before deciding on how much to cut.

Nice build. I've got an '04 x3 frame for 150 bucks new, threw a 2001 z1 , deore cranks and avid bb brakes on it, and have been enjoying it. Christmas time is here though, so now it's got a sram x7 drivetrain, with an ebay'd foxRC with propedal and a pike on the way.
