    "With The Message, hit a rock or bump and in the first part of compression, the wheel doesn’t dive or extend.

    that's all I'm at liberty to say

    Can we build an Endureau rig that tops the $20K frontier? I'm thinking Yes, I'm which case we need to make whoever wins the $1.6B lottery aware of our trust fund bike.
