I'm picking up a Balfa BB7 frame I just purchased off Ebay this weekend. It's a 2004 and its a frame only. I'm Looking for ideas or pictures on how other people have tricked out their BB7's and any bike related advice they may have on this type of frame...

i doubt many people have those frames, your probably better off looking through the picture section, although they are pretty sexy frames.

They aren't too popular out here but I think Balfa made quite the name for themselves in B.C. & Quebec. You would probably come across them more often up in Canada.

You made a good choice, the BB7 is a solid bike. I picked up a 2004 BB7 the end of last summer and just put the finishing touches on it last week.

Wow that's a beast. Looks like some serious coin has been invested. Are those motocross hubs off a dirtbike?

I love them. They are unique and different, but super strong & burley. No problems with them to date, and they aren't as heavy as they look - only slightly heavier than a regular set of freerde/dh wheels.

To answer the other question, yes it is a remote reservoir on the back of the seat post. The rear shock is a Risse racing Jupiter 7R.
