    I'm curious about ClifCat bikes. The high pivot ones like the Battle Axe. But I'd also like to see the older models if anyone has pics or info.

    Sorry my damned in box was full. Please send PM again.
    Thanks for the pics guys. I'm looking for the ones with high pivots though. I found some searching on here.

    I remember seeing that red and yellow one in your second post in MBA and drooling. It looks a bit dated now, as far as geometry.

    Also, is that the infamous Super Monster on the black one?

    The Super Monster ruled! :twitch:

    No, not really. I had one for a little while, put it on the front of a Karpiel Apocalypse just for kicks. It handled like crap and made the front so nose heavy that it would just drop after you hit a jump. Barhumping became the only technique that would allow you to keep the bike level in the air. But it was a great conversation starter and cool in a unique way.

    And yes, I have pics.

    The old school Holeshots were like the current Battle Axe except the upper chainring was mounted on the swingarm pivot like BMW Tmx's, RL's...etc. The new frames have the pivot behind the upper ring axle. I don't know why or what benefit it has.

    I've always liked those... just really pricey.

    I always thought this one was cool looking, or at least the most refined looking frame they made.

    I was told that he was going to refine the solution into a much lighter frameset. I really liked the look of that bike, a far cry from the battleugly he makes now.
