The Forrest Rocket

I have been referring to my DH bike more than once here on my blog. but never actually posted a full picture, showing the entire bike. Well here it is in its current setup:

Its a YT Tues 2.0 LTD. 200mm in the front, 208mm in the rear. 63,5deg HA, a low standover, adjustable chainstay length, and a ultra low leverage ration due to a 267mm x 89mm shock.

Up front is the BOS Idylle RaRe AIR. An amazing 200mm fork, that sits deep in its travel, its really something else once you take it out to the woods, weighting just 2680g btw. The wheelset is a E-Thirteen LG1+, with a scandium rim, and a carbon hub shell to reduce weight.

Out back is the new Cane Creek Double Barrel Air CS. I prefer an airshock as playfullness is more important to me than pure DH performance of a coil shock.

Gears are SRAM X0, and a E Thirteen LG1-Race crank and a LG1 chainguide.

Easton Havoc 35 Carbon Bar. 780mm, coupled with a Easton Havoc Bolt-On 35 stem adjustable from 45mm to 50mm. X0 trail brakes to wrap up the bike.

Total weight is 15.69kg (34.52 lbs). That's with full DH tires; Schwalbe Muddy Mary 2.3" up front, and Continental Baron 2.3" out back.

So there you have it.
