Is someone having a list of all parts of his bike? So when the Tornado is not available at the moment, maybe I can build my own one..^^

@Artur:

1.) What parts of the Tornado do you sell? For example whole batteries or just single ones?

2.) Is there any opportunity to buy the Typhoon with less expensive parts? I have a budget of just 4100€


Sorry for so many questions.. :(

Hello guys I'm 5'8 the frame looks long to me. I want to know if anyone is my height and if your able to sit up straight like a dirt bike. Pics would be great sitting on the bike. Now I run my med down hill bike seat all the way up short stem with 2 inch rise bars. Thanks for the help!

Sorry don't have any pic at the moment but there's a moto style seat that made for the vector frame. With that you know your sitting upright.

Rear shock spring.
Im using 650lbs if im not mistaken and it too soft,im think of a 240 x 76mm 900lbs spring.
Does anyone know where I can order a stiffer coil spring for the DNM RCP-2?

Nice ride bro! Not sure what size shock you have in the back but you may want to decrease the stroke length. You got a pretty steep head tube angle. Maybe it's just the angle though. I had the same issue. I pulled the dorado forks down as far as they could safely go as well.

Are those the CF dorados? If so badass!

Is it possible to use a zero stack headset with the Vector? I bought a Marzocchi 888 Bomber fork, and it appears that the steerer tube is just slightly too short. Looks like I'll need a new lower crown with a longer steerer tube. Ugh.

¨

What is "slightly too short"? 5 mm? 15 mm?
You could shave off about 10+ mm top and bottom of the head tube on the Vector, might be cheaper and easier to do then get new tripe clamps.

I think it needs a bit more. The quoted cost was like $20 between a new lower crown or shaving the head tube down.
