Uhhh yeah, they are teh evil bastard uhhh so bad... Don't like them but it's not the topic about them.

Congratz for putting a nice team. Hope they have a good season and spread the word of zumbi ;)

BTW. The team painting looks better than the standard one but your strange yellow is even better.

For Frogos information. You will find all the geometry information of the F44 on www.zumbicycles.com. 1170 at M size WB is a standard DH racing measurement mate. The Team is using standard sizing although they all had an option of custom geometry and I think names like Donoghue and Gaskell know perfectly what size bike they need or maybe You know better???

I am a bit shocked to see its a Fox team. Thought you guys always ran Avlanche Racing shocks. Bet you will to well though its a great bike and you have some really good riders there.

Zumbi, nie ma co się gorączkować ;) I just don't like the way they look.
Good for you, You entered WC team. You may sell few pcs more. Let's hope Mielec won't screw, again.
HT weighs nearly 3kg and looks like plumber's job, to me...

Plumbers are ment to race not design frames ;)

Pawel what Kacper said was about the looks. It does look much longer than it is in reality due to the seatube conecting with the downtube much in front of the bb and quite far from the CS. The photos posted make them seem even longer.


BTW. The black one is Tits. Best one I've seen so far. Just add a black fox 40 and you're pimpin.

In your pants
It's a solid bike, not too heavy, plenty of travel for DH, with a 2-year race warranty.

And let's be honest... DW link was trendy because all the Sam Hill wannabe's rode it. FSR is trendy because almost every other bike company seems to have leased FSR as some time. And VPP... well, I live 30 mins. from Santa Cruz. Don't even get me started on the trendiness of VPP.

I just can't wait to have this thing in my hands. :D
