The Fire 2006 Pics up

Built it up last week. Been out for a couple of rides. Put flat bars on it this week and it feels awesome
Frame- 06 Ventana El Fuego (the fire) 18inch, 3.5 inches of rear travel
Forks- 03 Duke SL U-Turn (63-108mm) Got it set to the recommended 80mm
Brakes/Shifters- 06 Shimano XTR
Cranks- 06 Shimano XTR
Rear derailleur- 06 Shimano XTR
Front derailleur- 06 Shimano XTR
Rims- 05 Mavic Crossmax SL
Hubs- 05 Mavic Crossmax SL
Chain- Shimano XTR
Cassette- Shimano XTR 12-34t
Handle bars- Ritchey Pro
Stem- Thompson
Headset- Cane Creek SOLOS
Pedals- Egg Beater SL's
Tyres- Front Maxxis Crossmark 2.1, Rear Maxxis Larsen TT (tubeless tyres with Stans)
Saddle- Specialised Avatar
Light- Nightrider Storm
Extra Info - all the tape on it is to protect the frame from rubbing cables etc I haven't been able to get to the auto shop to get some 3m film yet. Fork will probably be replaced by a Fox F80RLC

Having issues uploading 220k pics so tried 180k pics and still having troubles. I am very keen to the pics up because i had very hard time finding pics of el fuegos out there. only found 2 examples. you have to see it believe it. Got some genuine Manly Dam mud on it too. Lovely.

You're quite right ... you need to post some pictures
What does the weight come to, it must light with that kind of build

what am i doing wrong. the images window tells me it can't find the server when i click on the upload images button.

feels light. the old bathroom scales have a flat battery at the moment so can't give a weight either. all systems down here in sydney at the moment. at least the fridge is working.

Hard to tell if there's a Ventana under all those accessories and tape! ;)

What color is it - silver, gold, polished? FWIW - I gave up long ago on worrying about cable rub as no amount of tape is going to protect your frame from hits and thrown debris.

Nice bike John.

Point taken Soup Boy and Fo. It is in ride to work mode in the above photos. I will strip it down to race mode and get some better shots and a weight soon.
