Towing the party line.
um, I wouldn't say TLD knockoff. They have been around for just as long, and from are I hear, are lighter and more comfortable to boot (although just as expensive from what I have seen online).

I tried to get one about 4 years ago, but never found a dealer with a decent price who spoke english and would ship to north america.

The new T.H.E is exactly the same helmet.

Try contacting 23 Degrees sports about the Minnaar Replica that is coming out.

Lewis, get with the program.

I think you need to come get your wheel form my house as well, I'm sick of looking at it.

hmm, I just noticed that Minnar runs his brakes 'moto style' ... F/right, R/left.

when did 'moto style' and weird-ass Euro and Aussie set-ups get mushed into the same thing?

oh, i guess they are the same thing :D

trying to be cool by association huh? well then...World Champ in MTNX in 04 and 05 was on "MTB style" brakes...and American....coincidence??? :think: :think: :think: :rolleyes:

and besides..."Moto" style is dumb to say...cause there ain't a brake on that right pedal...and he damn sure don't have a clutch in his left hand....

Ha ha... Nah, just find it strange that it was described as "weird ass" and then saying that most of Europe and Australia run it that way. I'm fairly sure it's a derivative of the whole "left lane/right lane" thing for driving and so you can cover your rear brake whilst hand-signalling. Maybe.
