for the Marin 8/10 for looks 5/10 for geo
and the Orange 7/10, never thought they looked very good but this one looks clean. always kinda wanted one though

Well if you wanted to get away from black here you go
Just put a coil on her but the rest is stock. Still thinking of getting blue pedals to match the rest of the bike, and still might get blue fork decals also.

10/10 for the monster can addition

9/10 for Spitfire, nice color and cool setup but rear derailer cable looks like could be optimized to decrease cluttering.

And here is my Warden.

Good to see yellow bikes for a change

Love a Knolly, but I cant get my head around the tyre selection. Also point lost as non drive side shot, so 7/10

Here is a pic of my Mojo HD4, simply love this bike. Does everything I ask of it and delivers in spades.

LOVE it - it's a 10 from me!! How's it compare to your old Hightower?

Blows the Hightower away mate, i really struggled with that bike. Partly because of the weird SC sizing, mainly because the wheel size felt wrong and partly because i struggled to bond with VPP. I just find the HD4 better up, down and across. Its by far and away the best bike I have owned (and there have been a few) Looks like Ibis are testing the HD5 with their factory Enduro team now, which is fantastic news. But really i would encourage everyone to at least try a HD4 over a Bronson etc.

My AM9 Big Grin This photo was taken before I added a cable for the dropper, I need to get round to trimming the brake lines slightly..

8/10 for the Ibis for me - always bugs me how the Kashima on the shocks never seems to match Cry but an ace build nonetheless.

8.5 for the Knolly - interesting front tyre choice but otherwise I think it's great.

That is one of the best looking HD4's I have seen. 9/10
The raw frame on the AM9 looks clean. 8/10

I have already posted my patrol, but I have made a few updates. Also here is my wife's enduro.

9.0/10 for the patrol. Love the DVO.
7/10 for the enduro. Dig the stealthiness!

Here's my brand spankin' new Patrol Carbon GX Build... All oem except a set of my favorite Burgtec Ratboy 38mm special bars and the oneup chain guide. Thinking about swapping to an Assegai F/Aggressor R combo and have a wolf tooth lever for the reverb on order. Beyond stoked!

It's the best bar I've ever ridden by far. Always liked higher rise bars and never really fully trusted a carbon bar and this one really hits the sweet spot for me as far as rise/back sweep!

I’m with you on the whole bar thang

Solid 7 odd /10 just cause ya know not a custom build but it is niiiiice!

8/10 on the Tranny. Would be a solid 8.5 if the One Up chain guide were black and paired with their dropper. At least you will have a 10/10 dropper lever!

My custom 28 lb HTLT.
