    The links don't rotate in the same direction as VPP.

    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.

    I trust carbon fiber, but for the pure drool and bling factor Ti gives me wood every time.

    Wood is actually chemically closer to carbon than Ti. But I'm a slut and will take bling from any material thanx :D

    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:

    You don't need water bottles, just a spit catcher to scoop up the drool of all the people you ride by.

    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.
