Ooooh it looks like it plugs-in too! (just kidding!) Not being into DH myself, it still looks exotic – and Fast.

What, no fenders? ;-)

That’s pretty spiffy, to my untutored eye. When are you taking it out for a proper beating?

Oooh, nice. You’ll be hitting Dr. J with that, I presume?

that’s WAY too much bike for dr j. i have a bottlerocket for that. this thing only goes places where motors get me to the top.

dan, this weekend i’ll be out breaking it in on the trails at seven springs with the springs trail crew while you guys are all riding 2mph behind kegs of beer.

braaapppp!

No one is going to take you seriously wit those 750 bars. I won’t ride anything under 777….

Something with coil springs should be headed my way soon too.

That is pretty big for Dr. J, although I saw a dude with a full-on 50lb. DH bike on my first trip there… you could always have some extra fun by launching off things sideways. (J.K.)

eric, i ran uncut boobars all last season. too. damn. wide. i put a 745 bar on my bottlerocket and it felt so much better. i’m not 6’4″ so i need to use some common sense.

when you get your big bike let me know if you want to carpool out to the springs, since you pretty much live down the street.

Yeah, that was mostly tongue in cheek.

Car pool, yes.

Bikes are fun.
