    Here it is, I've been waiting a little while for it, and it was worth the wait for me. The pics are crappy, but they're all I have right now. I'll take a few more in the daylight outside tommorrow if anyone is interested.
    Specs are as follows:
    RAVen 5.0 frame, Brisa elite 2004 fork, DM24/king iso front, DX32/king classic rear, Middleburn RS7's 170mm, 105 rear der., Maggies front and rear( I still like 'em), King headset, Titec Rip 30 stem, Monty 31.8 bar, Grab-on Mtn2 grips, Threshhold rear booster(until I make my own:D)no shifter for now, but soon, I like to ride to my destinations a little bit.Thats about it. Hope you like it! Oh yeah, I guess white is the new black!!everyone wants it now:rolleyes:

    Not sure on the weight issue, I'll check it out tommorrow at the shop. Thanks for the Question though. I'm curious now myself, it feels super light while riding though, the front end kinda just pops up whenever you want it too, it's going to take a while to get used to I think.

    Nice....

    I think the tyres are:

    - Front: Tioga Factory DH 2.1
    - Rear: Michelin Comp 24.1 2.5

    But that is just a guess looking at the tread patterns/sidewall writing ;)

    Yep, middleburns now:)
    I'm selling the others if you're interested though, the arms are about three months old, and the right one has a few gouges on it from landing on it while missing ups.

    Man, that bike looks really nice. Kudos. I ordered a 5.0 from the second batch and I'm really anxious for it to come in. Seeing one built up (in the USA) helps alot. More pictures please!
    Isn't there like 5 more 5.0's in the states already? Come on people, Let's see them.

    yeah, it broke at the steer tube, the first one was on a 30in drop to flat and the second one was on a really light tap up
