    Frame looks sweet I cant wait to get mine. In case your weren't planning on it could you describe how it rides compared to the 04 pure after you get it built up and ride it for a bit. I wanna know what I get to look forward to :)...you have ridden an 04 pure right?

    The bb shell is ribbed.. for your pleasure.

    Am I the only one surprised to see you on an Echo? Curious how the new one rides as well.. looks about the same. Any geo changes?

    im sure they will be printed on a very expensive machine and will use fade proof inks... or not.

    I want to have sex with it all night.


    I love the bouncyness of the frame, very influential in riding style (vid soon???). Thank god I'm back on maguras, running one koxx bloxx and one plaz pad :hsugh: . I have to grind down both the cranks because they hit the yoke (118 bb), the right cranks hit when going to my bad side and torquing really hard, the left side simply didn't fit. Call me 50 cent because I have 2 quarters in the ends of my bars.

    In terms of comparing it to the XTP/woodman/level boss/etc. what I've ridden before...I'll let you know later. So far the frame fits me very well- stiffness is between xtp and woodman (so between a rock and a soft place), a little bit stiffer than I imagined it would be. I love the raised bottom bracket- I can see trials going more in this direction...Compared to a '04 pure I am not sure, this is set up how I set a bike up; the ones I rode were not- but they are very similar feeling. More later once I get completely used to it (it was strange from the zebdi thats for sure)

    like a mint sex machine on the rear wheel. Haven't had any issues yet, I have officially the highest bars in colorado I think- hopefully you'll see it on vid in the next few weeks as long as I don't break something trying to emulate my current idol ;)

    :down: ........they do that to me too.....

    I imagine it would be better if you put an urban on there? What do you think? It would put the BB about 10mm below its present level.

    Just a thought.
