    The new hardware is so trick that it would have a hard time sucking. The Suspension Center guys did some great work on the pivots and it looks like a very good system.

    I just want to see a price, and some order forms. Id actually like the thing to weigh more, so unlike my Socom when I crash it, I'm not trying to cover all the pointy rocks with my body so the bike doesnt hit them.

    Well if that is the case, you or Ian should have been a little more considerate when you finished. I had to put a brand new rear tire on it thanks to you two brake draggers. There wasn't any rear tread left. :shakefist:

    Brakes are for fairies and kids named woo....:weee:

    Shlt son, that thing had brand new tires on it when I rode it and that was only for a day. And those tires came off when the thing got passed along.

    Nice try. :rofl:

    Thats proof of a company that wants to improve it's bikes. Nothing is perfect first round.

    Nothing wrong with sharing info, it's your approach that sucks. You blindly pointed fingers and did so without a single bit of empirical evidence.

    how about you stick with facts, you've already proven that with generalizations you're a idiot. People like me? Look at how long i've been a member and my post count. Im a guy that reads alot and doesnt post much, however i will call a spade a spade, spade.

    Wow...triple quotes capped by calling the guy an idiot all wrapped up in a warm, steaming pile of self glorification. Classic.:blah:

    oh claus! behave...

    i would guess i was the 27th person to ride it. It totally shreds the balls out of the US Open parking lot. Best bike on the tarmac. ( but really its was too small and undersprung for me so i couldnt misform an a opinion based on this emperical clinical evaluation.)
