    Are these the same lads who said they felt 200mm travel for DH bikes doesn't work and 160mm is the way to go? . Guess they actually rode a proper DH and changed their minds )

    I love brooklyns so can't say anything bad about the heathen looks wise.

    oh it actually was sick bike co. - https://dirtmountainbike.com/bike-reviews/trail-enduro-bikes/spy-shots-sick-cycles-gnarpoon.html

    Jordan Childs, one of the owners, says: “I believe that the combination of a very long, very slack steel bike, with large wheels and a medium/long travel is the new benchmark for a downhill bike. I feel like having a 200mm downhill bike doesn’t work.”

    Now I'm 100% sure they canned it because more travel is moar better

    if there's anything 30 yrs in this sport has taught me it's that putting the shock inside the frame is definitely the way to go.

    how many cc's of oil does your top tube need?
