the fenders aren't too bad, the rear end of the ransom is quite tight and i would want to have to do minimal cleaning there so a small fender is cool. The front I wouldn't normally run but in super muck is understandable, see some dh'ers still use them with goggles.

Another really cool thing about the ransom and the rear seat post which i'm assuming is what you would cut down is that you can drop that seat and it won't interfere with the suspension.

Those bikes are truely amazing, good buy and build. what is the weight?

The front mudflap is to keep the goggles nice and clean. Keep scratching them when scraping of mud.
Haven[HTML_REMOVED]#180;t weighed it yet, don[HTML_REMOVED]#180;t know if I dare :P Could get very expensive.
Planning on buying another post for all day riding and cutting this one down.

Glad you guys like it
