Rick that bike is just sick! Sweet setup, I have the Straitline stem and pedals as well on mine in red though (1st generation SS in raw as well). I don't know what I was thinking:madman: , but instead of leaving the gritty RAW finish I semi-polished it. I had the frame and it wasn't going to be built up for a while and anytime I saw it I just wanted to do something to it :madman:. It's still bad ass, but the original RAW finish is still the deal, I remember my hands being dirty when I pulled the frame out of the box :) .

Awesome build on a awesome frame!!! Rick have you cut the fubars? And you are building also the M6? Cheers:thumbsup:
Not cutting the Fubars, they are 30''. I've become quite a fan of 30'' bars because of my 951.
And I decided not to build The M6, and do this project instead, I love my 951 so much, I seriously did'nt think I would ride the M6 enough to justify the cost.
I plan to ride this SS a lot, to improve my riding of my 951.
I'm totally hooked on the DH thing now.
I'll post up the differences I see between the two soon, and thanks for the compliments !

biking is fun

What do you mean several years? More like 2 years. Ask M6 and SSI owners.
it was closer to 1 year. I remember the first ones came out in november of 2008 and by fall of 2009 they had hit chainlove. I remember quite well because i had bought one used for $1500 in august and thought i got a good deal but then a few months later they were new on chainlove for cheaper and totally screwed over any resale value. My bike depreciated $500 in just a couple of months.
