 I got the 2007 model and i loved it. I have change many components to make it lighter because it's on the heavy side. I also made me a custom upper shock shuttle to obtain a different geo/travel i got 13.25 bb height 8 inch of travel and 63º HA. I realy like it like that but the stock geo was grat too.

 i just bought the 2009 a-line park model, and its the better bike i ever ride. But, i changed the 888 for a boxxer, i changed the rims for supra D, tire for minion, pedal, handlebar, grip, and i'll put a taco instead of a bashguard, It is pretty light with these upgrades, 39,5 pounds

 Just bought the frame over the winter. Roda it for the first time at Diablo. Out of all the DH bikes I owned this is the only one that I felt the most comfortable. Handles bumps with ease. Even better at speed. I am now selling my old frames. I have found the bike that finally works for me.



Built it up with Marzocchi 888, E-13 chain guide and cranks, Avid Code R, Sram drive train, Sunline DH Stem, Sunline Bars, Azonic Outlaw Wheels, Azonic 420 pedals, Kenda Nevegal 2.7, Rock Shox Vivid, Sunline Seat, Ritchey Seat Post.

 this bike is amazing, its so smooth and it will take anything you throw at it.... the only downside is that the standard wheels arent that strong, i clipped a tree and it buckled.

apart from that this is a fukin siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick bike

 This is a great all round bike, I have the 08 blue one. Ride it DH/FR/Race, good to ride up hill with the rocco- great at speeds and wicked to huck! I had the 07 Aline and went back due to their ability to handle anything and the low maintenance- highly recommend it!

 Bought mine last summer. So far so awesome. Little heavy, but that justs makes you stronger and gives you more momnetum. I was very fortunate to get mine on a great deal with very good components. Amazing DH rig
