Hi all,
thought I'd share my bike, with a few piccys to brighten the place up a bit...

Bought as a frame only and then built up with parts from my previous bike (Orange Five),
with an addition of some decent forks! (prev. Marz 55ATAs :evil: )

Specs:
08 Patriot frame 14" in Lime Green w/Maxle rear
Hope Headset
08 Fox 36 Van R
08 Fox DHX 5 Pushed Tuned 350lb spring
Hope Mono M4s 200/180 with floating rotors
SLX Cranks
Crank Brothers 5050XX pedals
SRAM X9 Shifters and Rear Mech
XT Front Mech
SRAM 991 Chain
XT Casette 11-34
Hope Pro 2 hubs with Mavic 719 rims - soon to be Pro 2s with Stans Flow rims
SDG I-Beam post with Formula FX Saddle
Easton EA50 bars with RaceFace Evolve AM 50mm stem
Sunline Thin Lock on grips

Tyres currently swapping between Maxxis High Rollers 2.35 and Advantages 2.25

Clicky!

    The Five was also a custom build, and I decided that I needed something with a bit of extra travel.
    I was using the Five with the Marz forks (160-140mm travel adjust) so everything was just moved over to the Patriot frame.
    Then the Marz forks gave up again, so I decided to get rid of them and get some decent forks!

    So the Five frame was passed to my Dad, who swapped the parts over from a GT I-Drive 4, and he loves it!
