    project freeride

    So now ive got the frame picked (ns *****) and forks ( marzocchi 55r). I currently have a norco havoc that im turning into a custom freeride bike. It is a single speed so im going to have it geared (figured i might as well since it will make my ride easier in some places) and now need opinions on what else to get. Thinking new handler bars, tires , keeping the rims ( got nice white spokes to go with the white frame), a new seat ( have a bmx one right now that freaking uncomfortable ). What else do you guys think? As for handle bars, tires, seats im open to suggestions. So guys what do you think?

    i can't get the ns ***** frame since it only comes in one size and it's to hard to get (not many stores carry ns alone, let alone a product thats production stopped) so im going with the ns surge and the rs pike. im 6 foot, whats better, medium or large. im more asking what you guys would take if you were 6 ft. im leaning towards large

    them being really cheap but talking to some guys at the local shop i think ill spend more on a fork. Thinking pike, budgets now up to 500 since i called the place online and learned that the ns b frame wont fit if i grow a bit more. So im going now with the ns surge (not the surge 2). Also the large should fit, talked to a guy, he was 6.2 and he said it fits well. The large if s 17 but it feels like a 18.5 so ill be fine with that. Should have the money in about a week or so. If you guys got any suggestions let me know.

    Shall we just go ahead and buy it for you and ship it COD? Maybe someone here would like to put it all together for you too .

    Yuppers. We'll do your research for you because you're too busy with more important crap.
