    Is that a standard 5th element? The shaft looks a lot bigger on Sam's bike.

    sweet... i want those bars...

    correction... i want the fat boys in a 30mm rise...

    anyone know if BTI is the only US importer / dist ??? they aren t listing the 30 mm rise bar, just the 50mm

    why is finding a (mail order) low rise 710mm / 31.8 bar so hard :mumble:

    The shaft looks standard to me .

    The top shock hardwere looks like a through bolt and a nylock nut
    but the lower pin is still there... :think:

    That Orange must be about 33 lbs without the pedals, maybe sub-30 lbs DH bike in the near future?

    I would get that GT if it works well, I'm gonna guess that's Dave Wardell's bike?

    How much does Peats bike weigh now? I remember hearing it was like sub-35 with the coil 5th, but now it has the DHX Air, i bet its around 30-33 lbs.

    Who knows what are those hubs ACC and Commencal are using? Looks like machined out aluminum & carbon inset... Nice touch with the gold anodized spokes too, a refreshing change from black.
