Well i did say i was keeping the DHS and well,i am hehe,last week a superb deal came my way on a pair of 2007 Fox 36`s so i had to have them,unfortunatly i had no need whatsoever for them so started sniffing around the MTB world for a swap deal,cut a long story short a local lad had a 2007 med Kona Stuff and a set of 2008 Pike 454`s so we did a straight swap,all the other bits i had lying around in my shed so heres the spec.
07 Stuff
08 Pike 454
Raceface evolve dh cranks
snafu pedals
Blackspire 36t ring
E13 bash (srs will be fitted as soon as i get a bb mount)
front D 321 on Ringle hub DT swiss
rear XM 321 on Goldtec Draco hub DT swiss
Ultegra rear mech shim chain
Easton ea50 post
WTB seat
Titec el notre bars
Easton vice stem
Hayes HFX9`S
Halfrauds lockons
Rides like a big BMX real solid little thing im going to mainly use it for agressive XC/commuting and if any of the boys without bikes want to go riding they can use it too.

Tom i swapped the 36`s for the pikes and frame so no i wont be putting them on there lol.
Yeh i do have a disc adapter here somewhere for it dont want to put a bigger rotor on as they are 203`s already,and my balancing skills are second to none (see my Foes pics) its one of my kids mini golf clubs.
