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.
cool to see dave working with the smaller companies. i think that is a good move on ibis' part to jump head first into that ballgame. for one, i am glad to see ibis back to building bicycles. horay for scott nicols!!!
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:
