Superb. The bike looks sick, the track looks fun. Are they going to leave the track or is it temporary (going there in mid-July)?

cheers for posting that up!

If that's the Worlds' course he was on, then they might as well give him the gold right now. Steep and no pedaling.

Sweet feature Transcend!

Shame they can't keep building the bikes. Tweaked geo and some speedholes would make for a pretty desirable frame, and they'd continue to sell like hotcakes.

It's just so few times that the planets align and you get a frame that has just the right angles, right amount of travel, and right weight all in relatively tough package... and I swear every time it happens, the company goes out of business, or the licensing ****s up, or something happens and bikes just go back a step again.

As for the vid, nice, but clearly a very relaxed sam there...

I'm with you Udi, it will be interesting to see what comes of the bike.

As for the track, its Pila, not Dimaro. So no, it's not the WC track.

I missed the "in" part of "Sam Hill breaking [in] his new frame" I kept rewinding it to try and figure out where it broke, and assumed it was that slowmo turn at the end that looked totally savage. Then I reread it and saw "breaking in his new frame"... Which was nice.

maybe the last edition of the DW-Sunday will have some speedholes...

I think Ironhorse is still allowed to sell the DW-Sunday next year, they just have to produce them this year. Is that right or am i wrong?
Maybe they're producing frames for the next 10 years rightnow! ;)

The song showed up for me in the video. Song is called Revision and the band is Change of Face. They're from Western Australia.
