Its kindof hard to read your posts, so reread what you have typed.

The R9 is a really nice frame. A solid build would be something like an 888, fox dhx, mavic deemax wheels, or mag30s, sram x.9 drivetrain.

I tried to run that through babelfish, but nothing seemed to make it more intelligible.

Jeez I was joking around! Some people can't take a good laugh every once and awhile. Go with what feels best to you, easiest to reach and something that doesn't put a hole in your wallet. Personally I would go with a Norco because they're badass, but that's just my opinion.

You should seriously consider proofreading your work before submitting it. Either that or take 4th grade English again.

You know, I'm praying for Raiyn. All I have gotten out of his posts are that he is getting a sinster frame for uner $2200 and that seems to be about it. I wouldn't even classify his spelling as "AOLese." I think this kid has taken the cake on being the worst speller, EVER.

What in the hell language is that? Some hybrid between AOL'ese ebonics and brain damaged gibberish?
If you want to be taken seriously leave the AOL'ese and whatever dialect you speak on the streets out there OFF THE BOARD and type like you actually passed an English Aptitude test.

AOL'ese is against the rules here and it also specifically sates that you are to do your BEST when it comes to spelling, grammar, etc. Typing like a crackhead WON'T cut it
You have been warned.


Goddamn spellchecker just about blew a damn fuse there

The two things that Mountain Biking and Rally have in common...dirt! Love dirt. Too bad you get buggur all Rally televised over here. Just AFL AFL AFL (dont hate it), but no time for the more important stuff DIRT! God I sure would be happy if they started tevelivsing Mountian Biking

I agree, MTB on tv would be awesome. The only MTb on tv we get is the nationals on ONCE a year and what used to be on "Chili Factor".

Hey, AFL is good

Sinister R9=Awsome bike. When I was in Melbourne a shop let me test ride an R9 with 5th Element, 888's, XTR, Hope 6pots... all the good ****. It was the store owners race bike I think he said it cost around $15000 AUD!!!! But it felt soooooo good. Sounds like you would be getting a deal.
