Now we're talking! :thumbsup:

I rarely see UST tires on downhill rigs... but it makes much sense. Okay now, let's see some action pictures!
Burp!

That's the best reason I can think of. At the low pressures you might like to run on a DH bike it could be hard to keep the beads seated. I know I burp the tires on my Prophet regularly with 30psi in them. At 20psi with big landings and rocky turns you would be in trouble.

Really? Do you have Mavic UST rims? Real UST tires? I have a hard time popping the beads off the rim's hooks even when I let go all the air. I usually run 27PSI front and 30PSI rear and never burped... I don't do huge drops like a bike like the Judge want to though (heck, I'm riding a set of Crossmax SL!). I have seen a lot of burps with people who use tubeless converted regular tires though.

Get yourself that frame ! It's awesome ! With a little extra training you can pedal uphill quite well - same like the good ol' Gemini DH ! By just buying the frame you'll get a real deal ! Unfortunately I don't have any other shots from that bike 'till now but as the season progresses there will come more and more pics on the HP www.frosthelm.de
Ride On !

please insert also the weight. a beatyful bike. and a small detail, if you down the flat the bike was more stable.
The weight of this bike is about 20 Kilos. In the FR1 version you'll get the weight down to 18,5 Kilos. What do you mean with "if you down the flat the bike was more stable..." ??? I don' t understand !
