here are some pics of the new ride, it says Percentage on it but i've never heard and some quick research revealed nothing either
I guess he has gone in house with his sponsors and is ridin a new rig
those are some beefy beefy stays

Bootes was racing DS on a repainted black Fuel with percentage decals, I never saw him on that hardtail?
prolly cause it wasn't a hardtail course for him but his site along with Pecentage's site say he is ridin for Percentage
along with Katrina Miller

Right, the bike he was racing said Percentage on it but it was actually a Trek. The pics from cycling news are from Sea Otter but I never saw him at Sea otter on that hardtail bike. That was my point...

NORCAL is the hizzle
I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure Wade rode a hardtail for the 4X. Every 4x racer I talked to said getting the holeshot was the most important thing up there and a hardtail would give an advantage out of the gate. Not sure if it was that specific bike but it was black and said "Percentage" in white just like that one.

bootes has been racing bmx lately on a percentage BMX with disc brake.

I don't care much for the e-speculation about what he was or wasn't using at a particular race. Then again i don't race.

That **** is whack.
Talk about small-time manufacturer, I've never heard of them and they're in the same city... and the website is terrible.

It's not really "e-speculation" when I saw it in person now is it? Same goes for OG with his comments about the 4X, he was there. It's also not about who cares about what, It's about facts. :nuts:

Does it look to anyone else in that second picture like he is running like 4 identical cogs on the back there? WTF?
maybe because you have to have at least 3 gears to race NORBA?

How does one go from trek to some no name brand. oh yeah nevermind :p
It happens when Zap makes the team calls and is not a big Wade fan, throw in the drug suspension and he was off trek quicker than money out of my bank account when I got my moto.

Trek has gone small time in a big way this year......maybe because it is an off olympic year or is it that Zap still has nitemares when he tried to race DH.............

Wonder how long they're going to be paying Armstrong even though he is retiring.........10 more years....?

I always hated Trek.

Ditto on the trek dislike....I dont think they will continue to pay lance, ala a ned overend kinda thing. Because he is not as involved as someone like Ned is with specialized.

Zap having nightmares...HAHAHA
