Well, I finally get a dream, few weeks ago I purchased the frame from a guy in the USA ( Doh, I forgot to say that I´m from Spain ), and with a lot of parts standing on my garage and some new ones, here is the result:

I have just a pair of questions, the first owner told me that it was a custom frame ( rear end anodized, 5.7 inches of travel, etc... ) but there is no serial number in the frame, ( just look the picture of the bb case ); there´s only a couple of words ( R and B ), anyone knows the meaning of this ?

The other question is ¿ how to put the shock to get the full 5.7 inches of travel ?

In a couple of days, I´ll put all the settings in the Set-Up database.

Many thanks.

Felicidades, majo!!

That Blade looks gorgeous all anodized!! I've been thinking on anodize the rear triangle of my Blade too.

I pretty much relate to you for several reasons. I also got an old Switchblade frame. I also live overseas (Mexico) and also built her with the remains of another bike. And also, it was my dream to have a high end bike and fortunately I ended up with (arguably) one of the best trailbikes ever made.

I can't help with the set-up unfortunately, but someone will come out to help. Just be patient. I could say that you have to use the mounting hole below the seatmast, that it's closer to the edge of the plate.

Again, felicidades!!!
Un abrazo desde Mexico!!
