Updated with a few more parts. WaffleStomp - I went with the Switch frame (for now) over the BMC for a few reasons: The current fork I'm not 100% sure it's 29'er compatible, and I'm not sure we'd find a more expensive fork//frame//shock combo (plus I ... more »

Keep em coming! I'm about to head out on a ride but I'll update the build when I'm back. Happy Saturday!

Added the Fox. If you can post links to the rims/hubs w/ MSRP I'll add them. I need individual prices for each component.

That'd be the one. Added.

I was speaking in regard to shock tune w/ the Switch Infinity setup, but that too is answered in the next question in their FAQ. "Can I put a coil shock on my SB6c? Yes. The SB6C is designed for use with air or coil shocks." I think there's a certain ... more »

Woooo dawgy! Added. Anyone know if any other shocks will fit on the yeti and work properly? I know it'll come up so we should figure that out now.

Thanks Gnarnia420, frame and fork added to the build. Off to a good start.

I'd lose the gears. Sure I'd be pushing up a lot of the climbs... but I do that anyways.

Man, there's a TON of history out there regarding the sport so it really just depends on how far back you want to go. Some notable names: Nico Vouilloz Steve Peat Myles Rockwell Missy Giove Shaun Palmer Sam Hill Sabrina Jonnier Greg Minnaar Rachel Atherton ... more »

Another local to the area, Steve Ford, may have something in the works at Teds. That said, he's asking riders in San Diego to stay off the property for the next couple days while he tries to work something out. From Steve: Call to arms...Please, nobody

This is what's left of the pond area, only "Big Pond" still stands... The old jumpline on the way out which has been flattened for months was re-flattened and left with these huge ruts. Where the little rock jump was between ... more »

I have more photos I can post later. Walked around early yesterday morning to see how bad it was, this time they got pretty much everything in the lower area and got the dozen further up the sand bags line and took them all out. It's ... more »
Reply to slx brakes 1/19/2016 6:54 PM

Unfortunately it's not super uncommon for brakes to come from the factory needing a bleed. It used to happen all the time and manufacturers have gotten a lot better at providing a solid feel most of the time, but once in awhile they still ship a bad ... more »

Those pulley wheels are ridiculous! Added.

Reply to Let's Build the Most Expensive DH Bike Ever 1/18/2016 10:31 AM

If you find it, I will add it.

Good stuff but we've got the Shimano power meter crankset on there which is upwards of three-grand and a $300 ceramic BB already, too. As for the rotors, they're not available in 200mm, unfortunetly. Would have been a nice addition otherwise! Keep checking! ... more »

Nice catch. Added another tire to the total as well as the power meter and imprint grips.
