    I just finished building up my new karate monkey this weekend. Thought I'd hit the forum with some pics:

    That is a sinister looking bike. I like it. Good luck

    /\/\ ...soon enough!

    and for the record, I'm 6'2 and I bought the 20" frame. It's a perfect fit for me with the Shiver that's on it, but if I ever wanted to try converting it over into more of a rigid cyclocross-type ride, it'd be a bit small.

    Off the subject, but do u have a tuff time pulling ur front end up with those spacers positioned above the stem making ur handlebars set lower? I positioned one spacer above mine for a change and I am not sure if I like the feel, but I like the look.....maybe I am just a panze too maybe, lol.

    I've got 2 other stems that might make an appearance on this bike (because the DH stem is a little out of control). That said, it's in the "dial the fit in" stageuntil i find a stem height/rise/throw that fits me and the bike best. I'm holding off on cutting the fork tube until i'm sure it's where I like it. I might leave a little of it (maybe a half inch) in case i'm heading to the mountains and want a little extra leverage on the front wheel...

    leave it and call it a chin skratcher thats what we call the spacers on the top plus the fork has more resale value if it isnt cut.

    i must say, that bike with the Shiver looks pretty wicked cool
    "I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."

    Same, one of the first bikes I've seen that actually works with an sc shiver.
