    Hey guys, Im a downhiller from NH originally but moved to SLC for college at university of Utah. Let me know what you think of my bike build. I have an Iron Horse Warrior 6.0 full suspension for sale now to continue to build my new dream up

    This is her, I know she is kinda old but for my first DH build I am really happy with her. Let me know what you think here is the part list so far.

    2.5 inch front Maxxis tire on MODO rim
    2.35 back tire maxxis on Rhyno Lite rims (i have a 2.7x24 inch doublewide if i want too)
    Fox Vanilla R rear
    Boxxer front
    Blackspire crank with quarter inch bash gaurd
    Singlespeed
    V3 Sunline Pedals
    WTB pure V seat
    Yeti DH Bars
    Ringle Stem (probably switching to a Tomac)

    Still need brakes, im thinking Elixer CR's or Hayes Nines depending on price

    I have spend in all $157 on EVERYTHING you see after getting the bike and parts from freinds and spare parts

    Welcome to the site. It's ok that your bike is old. It's a Rocky and they're built like brick $hit houses. I just picked up an 08 Slayer last year. It's technically not a DH bike, but that's what I use it for. I replaced the stock triple with a RaceFace Atlas and bash guard, added a chain guide, dropped the stem down, and viola! Instant DH bike.

    Are you going to take that to Sundance next year? Or do they have sweet downhills at places like Alta and Snowbird during the summer?

    I reside in Park City in the summers as a white water rafting guide so I'll be Downhilling PC and the infamous Deer Valley. A freind of mine is sponsored by Kona so I get on Deer Valley DH courses fairly easily
