    Oooooo.... Damn, that is HOTNESS...

    Strange the way they detailed the rear with paint. I noticed in the pics that the shock stay (tubing that sprouts into a yoke, welded onto the top of the pivot above the BB shell) is black while the rest is that bitchin' copper/ano brown color.....if only Spesh had a lease program.... :think: :D

    What is the purpose of the links connected to the shock being black?

    Sweet bike

    the only thing that i can come up with is that is it to make iut look like the shock stay is not there. almost hiding it so it looks like a reg fsr bike.

    maybe so that its evident to anyone that sees it in motion, that there are TWO REAR TRIANGLES, and we all know more is betterer.
