    Seem to be doing very well. They are now in a larger facility (moved earlier this year I believe).

    Don't worry, you'll be seeing a number of us around. :thumb: come riding some weekend!

    You will see ALL of those Red Furax's at races all along the East Coast. The Canadians were more than a little jealous while we were ripping up Bromont on the freshly built rigs.:thumb:



    Waiting for the Cane Creek Double Barrel Shocks, Gamut Chainguides and Diety Handlebars to complete the build.

    Great on the Furax's but I meant the rest of their lineup in the states - not just DH bikes.

    Right now we're concentrating on The Gravity aspect. The Furax and the GamJam. Their complete line is available in the USA. Their xc and trail offerings seem to be real popular across the border and the BMX frame is the lightest steel bmx frame in the world, it's siiiiiick.

    The new iteration of the Raah looks really sweet. And that BMX frame looks "the tits" too! That XC hardtail ain't too shabby either. Great to see XPrezo growing!

    The sag would be dependent on the shock , not the frame.

    The shock manual recommmends to consult the frame manufacturer for suggested sag %.
