That thing has "Trail 66 Series" (circa 1998) written all over it. I must have seen a dozen of those babies at each event back then, and believe me, they looked like a bad idea even in those ancient times.

The only problem with those is that if you whip a really flat table - they take off. That big airfoil downtube will carry you up to about 10,000 feet, then stall.

...see - this is what happens when roadies try to design a DH bike. They create it in their own image.

Looks like a Trek road bike that got gang-raped by a Gemini, a Karpiel Disco, and a DHR...

...only roadies would put airfoil shaped tubing on a DH bike. :blah: :D

does 16 bad transactions out of almost 400 count as terrible feedback?
He has a 95% Feedback rate, or 5% of his transactions are complaints.

You could also delve into it deeper, like most of his positives are purchases, and the 5% is only sales.

I have a 100% rate, and I try to buy from people who have 99% or higher. No need to be No 17.

Have any of the bidders been to a Supergo and looked at the Iron Horse bikes for not much more.

The guy must have friends, etc. bidding to raise the price.

Selling off the fleet, Stu?

I want a Turner XCE made special for DH, can you talk to Dave for me?

Seriously, that bike will get someone hurt.
For you, any bike you need, I can get. Your Highline with the SID carbon fork w/ lockout will be shipped tomorrow.

I counted 21......but 5 were from the same user. YOu didn't factor in all the "neutral" ratings as well that don't count against you......but still are not positive.
