    Show us your Freeride/Downhill Bikes...

    Single speed threads. Hardtail threads. Show us your Kona threads.
    I searched and searched...
    Couldn't find a thread devoted to freeride / downhill bikes.

    This is my downhill bike.
    It's also my XC, hill-climbing, and all-mountain bike too! :lol:

    My Haro X7. More freeride than DH, but at 7" of travel front and rear and weighing in at 42 lbs, it handles the DH well.

    Wow a couple of replies and this thread is already going in the wrong direction.

    I was expecting to see full dh rigs with triple clamps, 8+ inches of travel, and the some crazy looking trails underneath them.

    I guess anything can be considered DH bike if the person has the skills.



    Here ya go. I need all that travel because it compensates for my crappy riding.

    I believe it's been pointed out that they weren't. I was just looking for any chance to work in a bike I own.

    but I've decided I want one of these bad boys in the future:

    Pretty much that exact build with the exception of cranks, wheels, and fork color (I want BLACK :bang:)

    It doesn't get more "Downhill" than this! My Intense Socom and my TLD carbon flame helmet on top of Bootleg Canyon in Nevada. Now THIS is an appropriate picture for this thread!
