nice ride man. I just "felt up" a morphine this past weekend. They're sweet bikes no doubt. How much travel does that get?

I just noticed something you kept a front deraliuer on. Is this your freeride/pedable bike? also is that a phone cord wraped around the chainstay?

Its my XC bike!
What I have wraped around my stay is plastic spiral wiring wrap from Radio Shack. Its cheap, lasts forever and takes forever to put on.

That is one serious looking bike. No wonder it's gotten such great reviews...those are some beefy chainstays.

Great Bike Kevin.
