alas, the gratuitous curvy tube detesters are going to be flogged with noodly appendages in '09. the new dh; funky anno / looks light (air rocco!):

I thought we already had a thread about ramen. Does that frame come in chicken flavor?

That's a sexy bitch.

I'm a sucker for the design aesthetic "flaccid."

No, I really do like it. I was getting tired of bikes that look like Caterpillars.

Interesting. I dig the blue ano, but I am not as into the extreme curve of the downtube. I like some of the curvey frames, maybe seeing it from another angle, or in real life will make it look better. A test ride would be nice too!

i too am a sucker for the anno (i was a hardcore bmx kid in the 80's) ie:

Now that I am down with....the blue and brown go and I have owned and raced a good # of those parts....kashimura seat I think, first gen flight cranks..look to be 180 at least... landing gear...comp 3s....hutch pedals......araya 7Cs maybe.......

My 'PK' was black with red graphics....custom painted..I think I had shimano DX cranks..those died and I got turned on to Campy!!

replaced with a Nomura....very PK looking frame..the RS racing..horizontal dropouts with eccentric bb

nomuras are sweet! i lusted after those. that was a rare ride back in the day & worth some coin now. my first bmx was a kuwahara kz-1 (circa '80) - blue w/. gold anno.

i actually think that the rocky flatline looks better, i could barely take the new six and shore, this pushes everything way over the edge. i have to say there are some cool colors going on though.

edit: my god, long stroke on that roco.

You think wrong. And it's 2 gears.
Seriously? Not quite the revolutionary product they tried to build anticipation for. So has there been any official unveiling yet? They can't be to pleased if it was an accident, still having that teaser website up...

OH the humanity!...Like the blue ano....but the tubes...do rocky mountain and norco "engineers" have the same dealer?
Same dealer? do you mean drug dealer?
looks like most manufacturers are using the same brain these days...
