Whoah. Ninja-wanna-be-pimp-daddy-poofta.

Have you ridden a Vanilla before? If so, let us know what the "new improved" dampening is like (read as: does the compression knob do anything these days?).

I flipping LOVE Juicys. Good call all-around.

Nice colours

Wow - adding the red bits really works. That is truely a work of art!

Let us know how you get on with those forks. I need some new forks and I'm very interested in how the new Vanillas work out.

hey, it's finaly complete! looks great.
good strategy to put some red parts on the bike so the red spring blends in perfectly

where did you get the adaptors from?

and how is your ankle? back on your bike again?

olympic greetings

Thanks Newton, where is yours ??

I got the adaptor from www.Hibike.de, I also got from them the Contis Veritcal and and some other stuff. Very good service.

Unfortunatelly I still wear my cast and I have only managed to ride it one time :mad: :mad: I think next week I will be able to ride it again.

As a result of work, unfortunately, I won't be able to put her through the paces until this weekend.

When I get enough decent rides in, I'll let you all know about the Vanilla. I'm pretty curious as to how it performs too. I liked my old RLC. See no reason to unlike the '05....yet.

I did order the Fox DHX 5.0!!! It should be here Friday... I hope.
