    My DS 8.4 has come a long way..

    It's been a while since i have posted...so here is what my 8.4 has evolved to.


    Hopped Up Parts List:
    Crank Brothers Carbon Bars(Cobalt 11 720mm)
    Crank Brothers Stem(Cobalt 3 80mm)
    Crank Brothers Pedals(Eggbeaters 3)
    Crank Brothers Wheels(Iodine 2 29)
    Crank Brothers Set Post(Cobalt 2)

    Shimano Deore Shifters
    Shimano Deore Hydraulic Brakes
    Shimano SLX Front Derailer(To clear bigger tires)...the stock front derailers only allow at best, a 29x2.0mm tire
    Shimano SLX Rear Shadow Derailer

    Odi Grips(Rogue)
    Schwalbe Rocket Ron 29x2.2 Front Tires
    Maxxis IKON 29x2.2 Rears

    Once it's daylight, ill take more pics of the parts close up.

    Evolution indeed.

    I have taking it over 44mph in the dirt, went down 4' drops, jumps a whole lotta jumps..and the frame is still good. Yes, the DS is a pretty tough bike.

    I like the current wheels on the DS. I know you have a Rumblefish, how do you choose between the two before a days riding?
