    Its In Stone

    I'll be going to school at MBI in Spokane WA!

    I can't wait! I'll be getting the education i want and shreddin the Gnar part time! If you live up that way and have a dh bike for sale please let me know! I dont know much about DH at all, but i do know that i will really enjoy it! Im not looking for the top of the line 2011 WhateverMaRig, im just looking for a pretty good used bombproof bike that will get me by for a while and one that isnt going to completely bust my bank.

    Also, i will be going to school up there the first of the year so i cant really do anything untill then. But i think it would be good to know what im looking at getting a bit prior to buying it so i can do some research and what not.

    Thanks so much!

    John

    Congrats Mr. J. Law, have a great time up there. Great place in the world to be. Some great trails and trout fishing north of Spokane up into Canada.

    Remember, Grades FIRST, trails second............the better your education now, the nicer your bikes in the future.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I don't have a whole bike for sale right now. I have an '08 Transition Blindside frame (medium) with a Gravity crankset and a dual-crown RST R-One fork. It is essentially this bike minus a lot of important pieces:



    Not prepped for sale yet but I will probably soon sell my '03 Diamondback XTS Moto (large). It's my 7"/ 6½" trailbike; has a 7" single-crown RST Storm Super and Hayes Mag HD brakes but is otherwise close to stock. It looked like this when new:

    And was rebuilt into this:

    That Blindside looks wicked, but i would definatly need one with all its "important pieces" haha. And the DB may be a bit to big for me. Im only 5'8" on a good day.
    Also, what are the advantages to double crown forks?

    but how much are you asking for the Transition?

    also this may seem like a stupid question, but on the DB the rear shock, is it upside down? The stock photo is facing the other way.

    More torsional rigidity and usually more plush than a similar-length single-crown, because there is more internal volume for oil, damping circuits and a looser-wound spring.

    Oh, and I'm asking $800 for frame/fork/crank.

    It doesn't. Most or all Fox remote-reservoir shocks can be flipped any which-way. I chose to flip it so that there would be no chance a slammed seatpost could foul with the reservoir.

    Ok so.. If I went with the blindside, how much more would you estimate I would have to put in it(price wise)? Not top of the line but not junk.
