The saddle is waaay back cuz I have the bike set-up very steep....395mm fork. Climbs like a raped ape!!!!! I have very good descending skills so it's no problemo!!!

The way the bike is angled in the pic creates an optical illusion.

Frankie Bro....look at the pic....the difference in handle bar using the garage for perspective, the bike is copping a major lean i.e. optical illusion. :x :!: got it :lol: 8)

Yupper... love the Canuk stuff....Labatt's blue man. I did however send a few Bell's down the gullet after The Iceman. Team Bell had a little swarie at one of the local pubs after the race.

You and I are neighbors. I live in Clinton Twp. about 30 minutes or so from the Ambassador.

We have some awsome riding over here. I've been all over the country riding and we have plenty of single track to choose from within an hour from my doorstep. If you can swing a day off we can hit a few trails. I don't have a set work schedule so LETS RIDE!!!

You have a DH course near you. I've been meaning to give my FR rig a little exercise in your neck of the woods.

Sure lets do it, depending on weather I will let you know

The nearest DH course I can think of is Hardwood hills, about 2hrs north or are there others?
