    specs:

    Bike includes Hayes HFX9 downhill discs front and rear, Edco Big Rock 15mm thru-axle rear Hub. The rear wheel has almost 8.5" travel, provided by a patented World Cup winning Fox Vanilla RC coil-over shock. The fork is a 2002 Marzzochi super T pro. Alex dx32 front rim, Mavic D321 rear rim, Shimano LX rear derailleur, almost new tires, Black Spire chain guide/tensioner, Easton platform pedals, 9 speed LX shifter and matching cassette. Race Face Evolve bottom bracket, Easton handle bars, Race Face Diablos stem, ODI lock on grips, Truvativ Hussefelt cranks, includes seat.

    I love the way this bike rides, the floating rear brake is awesome on rocky descents, it allows you to slow down or stop wile still having a full 8" of rear wheel travel.

    This bike is in very good condition but it is a downhill bike so there are scuffs in the paint. I have never crashed it but there is a small dent in the top of the down tube, which should not affect durability or reliability.
    I hate to sell it but lack of time (and the need for cash) forces me to. I have only had time to ride this bike about 4 times since I built it in May. This bike is a great deal for you!
