i sincerely hope you never need to go UP with that gnarly beast!

Nice ride, nice selection of parts. Looks like it'll take a severe beating and ask for more.

What rear shock did you get? Was it the Carnutt or the Fox? Is the Progressive 5th an option?

Have you gotten it dirty yet? If so where? Any pics?

I took it out a few times, nothing huge yet, still getting comfortable with the setup.

I got the Fox the curnutt is not an option yet through foes, they will not be making the curnutt that fits the fly untill nov or dec 2002.

5th Element will not fit the fly nor will Avalanche. Only other option is Romic, but I will hold out till I blow the shock or I get the Curnutt.
