anyone know the length on a new medium Firebird? Is it 70?
Why are you going from a Spot to a Firebird? I'd guess because the Spot rides like it's got 4" of travel and you want more, but just from what I've read here and there.pjlama said:Cool, thanks Timberrr. I'm very close on ordering a frame and putting the build from my AM DW Spot on it.
Veerrrry nice looking bikes. I think what I was reading about was with the RP23 bike and they were changing can volume or something. But that was a while back now and my memory on that is a little fuzzy.pjlama said:I have two Spots, one is built up more XC the other AM. I think I'd prefer to put all my heavy parts on a Firebird for my AM rig and keep my lighter Spot for my XC bike. The Spot, depending on set-up feels pretty deep. The way I have the AM one set-up, MX coil and Lyric doesn't feel like 4" by any stretch but I like it better as an XC/trail bike so I ordered a white Firebird today :thumbsup: We'll see how the experiment goes, I have a couple friends who want one of my Spot frames and if I don't like the FB I can sell it but I have high hopes after testing the FB around the parking lot at my LBS for whatever that's worth Here's a pic of my two Spots so you can get an idea of the FB build.
