Not that many people have Ciclons yet. Most of those that do have already posted pics in other threads.

There are plenty pics of El Salts in the Set-Up thread.

RP23 unless you plan on PUSHing seems to be the consensus.

Here's mine

Sorry for the crappy pictures;)
Actually i got mine about a 6-7 weeks or so ago:) but i was still
waiting for a few parts,so i couldnt build it up.
To make a long story short,i finished the build,but it didnt
look right.
Took of the headset (CK Ti) seatpost and stem (both Thomson elite)
So now im waiting for a new seatpost/stem + i cant decide which headset
to put on:confused:
Cane Creek solos or FSA Orbit Extreme,got both lined up here,but just cant decide:madman:

I absolutely love the candy apple red colour,and the welds on the frame is even more
beatyful than the ones on my (former) Intense 5.5.

wow - very nice

what forks are they ?

I think black stem/seat post would look best..
I came to the same conclusion,so im waiting for a Syntace Superforce stem
and P6 seatpost.
Also decided for the black headset.

The fork is a Rock Shox Lyrik Coil

Beautiful build. Why did you rid the bike of a CK headset? And, how do like those cables?! Give us the skinny...
I may have a clue... Thomas, did you take the CK headset off because of the creaking reports when used with Lyriks??

He means that unless you plan to send your Fox shock (Float R for example) to Push Industries for custom tuning, the best "stock" shock for the bike is the RP23...

OK, I would agree with your reply, but I read into that comment that the Float R makes for a better shock to PUSH.

The reason I ask is that I'm planning on ordering a new El Ciclon, and plan on eventually PUSH'ing whatever shock I get... so I was asking why the Fox Float is better a better PUSH over the RP23?

Thanks again.

Glad to hear you pulled the trigger on the Ciclon. You are gonna have a blast on it. Definitely get some pics, I'm curious what it'll look like in that green. Still waiting to see Larry post up some pics of the bass boat silver Ciclon that we got a peek at recently, as well.

The paint was a $150 upgrade............I wanted it will match my camo Giro Xen helmet....I'm mounting my AR-15 to my handlbars....:D But seriously Cosmic Orange and Army Green are the colors to have. ;)
