Very nice. Is it carbon? I see fox. I love fox stuff. I just can't justify it because i just don't ride hard enough to even hit the limits of my suntour stuff.

Thanks. It's the aluminum version, maybe and that's a big maybe in a few years I'll buy one. Yeah this is my first bike with Fox suspension so I really can't give any feedback just yet. The fork is Fox float CTD evolution 140 mm. Is it to much bike for the trails around here? I'm pretty sure but I'm not going to be looking back thinking I should have bought a Anthem X again. Few more pictures!!! ImageImageImage

That thing is dripping with Trail/Enduro.. Cross Country or downhill, it should do fine wherever you make it go :)

That is one sick rig RT, awesome pick up :shock:
Ride report when you can. That is one of the cleanest AM bikes in market in my opinion.

Thanks again guys. Went for my first ride yesterday and all I can say is Wow. This bike has met and exceeded my expectations. Still have to make a few adjustments grips, rear tire, reroute dropper cable other than that this bike is a Beast!

I saw this Schwinn Swindler 650b cruiser at Walmart a few days ago. I didn't pop on it but a rather cool looking bike. Image Image

Another 650b bike I ran across is the Asylum Hank Klunker. The geometry is similar to old Schwinn straight bars. Coaster brake bike with disk brake tabs.

Here's what I just got the 30th of last month :D.

Diamondback Atroz Comp, Nashbar Exclusive.

Going to get some different tires and rotors on it soon :).

I kind of like the idea of that rear frame over the chain, but then not lol.. That black Diamondback could make a believer out of me though! I saw a Genesis 29'er with the rear suspension frame over the chain and it just seemed heavy.. But a full suspension Walmart Genesis would be heavy, I wonder though, if the higher suspension raises the center of gravity? That could make a bike seem heavy I suppose.

Either way, That's a good looking bike :D

Actually I know *Exactly* what Genesis 29er your talking about lolz its a Blue and White FS V2900 lolz, and it does remind me of my DB when I look at the rear end lolz, funny thing with the Genesis you can actually put nearly everything that's on my DB on the V2900 lolz, I actually owned a Genesis Overkill 27.5 prior to this DB, did a bunch of research on parts to upgrade etc etc and found out I was just better off getting this DB for less then the estimated amount I was going to toss at the Overkill lolz.

My DB weighs around 33ish pounds, so a bit heavy, but to *Me* it seems light lolz, but that might be, because I am use to an Old Vertical PK7, the one with the awkward rear frame design that arches back that's steel, unlike the front frame which is Alu.

This DB Atroz Comp retails for $1700 on average, I got it on Nashbar when it was 49% off XD so I paid $960 for it :O, was actually just under 1k with shipping But I got that refunded once I showed them how Fubared the packaging was >.>, was not too happy with UPS with that to say the least. They didn't even Knock on my door when they Dropped it off, just ran off...Literally o.O and I was in the Kitchen making food even lolz.
