Sorry about that.

Man, I was hoping to buy an indie-fab dw bike one day, but that thing is siiiiiick! And I'm a downhiller.

I think it's the first time I've used that icon.

No carbon fiber for this boy, I don't trust it.
You have to get used to carbon.

I got a great deal on FSA carbon cranks and bars for one of my bikes, so I figured the cranks would look cool on my wall after I broke them (I've broken several downhill cranks).

I was super nervous at first and thought every rock I hit was going to snap them, but they've totally blown me away.

When my downhill bike was out of commission, I ended up taking my 5 1/2" travel "trail" bike to N* twice. Rode everything there pretending I was on a downhill bike. Smacked the pedals HAAARRRD a couple of times, each time expecting my crank to explode. Nothing happened. Jumps and drops, nothing happened.

Just boring old, stupid light, carbon parts.

That bike is too sick! I don't know what I'd do....ride it or display it in my living room. I'd love to give that and the IF Tungsten Electrode a head to head test...... just thinking about it is giving me impure superbike thoughts.... :evil:

The Silk Carbon comes in at a very competitive $1399 (without fork) and the full suspension Mojo Carbon, featuring dw-link suspension, will run you $1899.
OMFG! I could actually, theoretically, afford one!


The catch 22 is that I wouldn't be able to stand putting sub-top-of-the-line parts on it... making it unaffordable.
