Yikes, that's a pretty significant problem. Assuming the X2 the frame comes with doesn't make contact..?

Pretty nice build for "low spec"! Looks great, love the matte purple finish.

"me beating up the precursor badly" - what happened??

Am not larsowe, but my Marino frame with similar spec weighs in at approx 3.8kg, or 4.3kg with a DVO Topaz shock + hardware.

wow.. wow! Certainly unique, a nice spec list too! Do you find the single pivot does okay with a coil shock? Have to run fairly low sag?

Nice one. I have been dreaming on the Marino website about creating my own single pivot destroyer. Only concern is getting the correct suspension tune and painting.

$530 + shipping for a frame w/o shock

How much would it cost a bike like that?

Yep, as Adventure Time said $530 plus $100 shipping for the frame only. I also added a couple extras so the total was US$680. Add on all the other parts & it comes to approx $6400 AUD for the spec as listed (using new prices), though I did buy some parts secondhand so actual would be less.

What I eventually did was take the geo of a Smuggler and Stumpy EVO and kind of combine them which seems to have worked well. Getting the shock set up was actually pretty straight forward, ended up settling with 4 volume bands in the Topaz and around 155psi - I am pretty lgight though at 75kg. The frame is definitely very linear, was considering changing to a coil, but i'm not sure it'd work very well, even with a progressive spring. I would definitely recommend getting a shock with a climb switch too, the single pivot loves to bob when pedalling but the climb switch mostly sorts that out.
