    here she is in all her glory, the Superco Silencer prototype DH bike. Dirt gave us the scoop on this impeccable whip and now you can learn more from the man himself with audio, photos and video of the suspension. THANKS TERRY AND DOC! this bike is freaking aces!

    fyi, no release date or pricing made official yet.

    ED's NOTE: matty t was the location scout and forced us to shoot the bike at the lake instead of the trails...HUGE thanks for that b/c the pics turned out so much better!

    amazing bike - it really is awsome that one can build a 38lbs steel dh bike with durable parts !
    still not convinced there is a need or a benefit from such a "race" geometry though.

    Well the 'benefit' only becomes apparent when riding real fast and real steep trails. The only problem is accessing that sort of terrain can be limited...

    May also be from Doc's custom made zero rise stem, and/or lack of proper bolts.

    Bahh that's childs play d00d. Everyone knows a portable 20mm rifle packs more knock down power!



    And on another note - that bike, particularly the cradle section around the shock and linkage is a fine piece of fabrication! +1 for doc.

    Yes you do and Doc loves it.

    And yes that is a stripped thread on the crown. That fork is 3 yrs old.

    LOL about the steering stop.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Terry, you gotta let me come by your guys shop and check out that thing. Hopefully some of Doc's talent can rub off on me so I can build something like that. Or let me know if you guys drop by Go-ride with that thing so I can make sure to be there, haha!
