    thats the first dare ive seen with a single crown fork. is it set up for the full 8/9" of travel?

    i dont know what travel it is..methinks 7" is about it. SC fork feels really good on there IMO. a lot better than the DH2 i had before.

    those forks allways look jacked up around the headtube. nice bike tho, that rear susp looks sweet

    do you freeride on it or is it just like an XC play thing? and how plush is that rear end, ive heard a couple shit reviews saying it was really stiff

    i dont know what i do on it yet, i just finished it today..hell, i might sell it. i just wanted to build it up.

    the suspension feels butter smooth to me...i am used to riding a trials bike or a 250lb yamaha though, so who knows what its really like. definately isnt stiff... i had the stratos x expert shock on before, it was horible, i wanted to shoot myself for buying teh bike..but the new romic saved it very much.

    sweet, I looked at the Ellsworth website, the Joker looks nice. But I would prolly get a used something or other, I dont want a full DH bike that weighs 50 pounds. Just something to hit some jumps, jump some stairs, and still be pretty good down hills and stuff. full susp and dual discs are a must. any ideas? I wont be buying till I have a job and stuff so maybe 2-3 years. freeride seems like something fun that I would like to try.

    well..ellsworth are kind of a boutique brand IMO..i came across this one and it was a steal so i took it. i was looking at kona coilers/stinkys, giant ac's, and some other things before.... basically anything that gives you 6-7" and is under 37lbs...those were my criteria. i wanted a dual chainring on the front so i could go up some hills too. i wanted a single crown fork for sure, but i wanted a T/A too. it all depends on what kind of riding yo uare doing. i am doing some extreme trail riding i think. time will tell
