i think he really runs his seat like that. there is one dhr here and if you run the seat lower or further back, it will rub against the tire when you bottom out.
oh yea, forgot to say sweet bike... whats the weight like?
i ride the shore a fair amount. last weekend i road air suppy and ladies only on fromme. i hit every thing on air supply with no problems, the bike was amzingly smooth, even the trail gap felt like a joke. and ladies only was super eazy too, a bit too eazy, we were just out for a nice eazy ride. but i kept getting way a head of my riding budies.
no i pussed up that one too. even ridding on flat ground is a hard with this bike, but once it's going down hill it's all good. i also have a 05 norco 4by if i ever feal like riding up a hill, but the seat post is pritty short on that bike too.
that's the most pretiefull and clean bike I've ever seen . holy crapolies thats nice (wait a minute did i just give that bike two complements---------- oh who cares it desereves it) you have got some money to be putting a bike like that together.
