 Aw man... This brings back memories. I wanted an Apocalypse SO bad. Pretty sure I looked to buy that green Armageddon with green wheels that dh-bomber posted at one point too because I couldn't find this one. It looks awesome, down to the ridiculous seat post clamp. The seismic front hub is badass. Love the 24's. Probably been asked many times but how much did she weigh with the air shift system on it? Why did you take that off? How did you find the frame and some of these parts like the front hub? I had trouble finding this stuff even back in 2007.

Here's my bike back in the day:

 that's the brooklyn i like! yeah, thanks to you. i was thinking about switching to another seat clamp for quite a while now, lol. the weight is 25.4, but i am planning to make it a bit lighter. i am taking the airlines off when i know i'll have some freeride going on - you don't want to brake such things. actually, the airlines are lighter than an ordinary x7 shifter. i can tell you in more detail - just pm me and ask whatever. regards.

 I can't stop looking at this beast , and why do bikes especially yours look so much better on 24" wheels?
May get some for my balfa

 thanks i did run balfa on 24s - the bottom bracket is very low, and you can sometimes hit the ground with your cranks. however yeah, 24 wheels on oldschool frames look amazing, i agree.
