You sure are a curios chap.....You will get many replies for this one ...
White RavenKS aka Kevin Sherimizu a highly ranked junior rider and producer of many fine CO trials videos ,along with Jeremy VanSchoonhoven a much higher ranked rider ,both ride the new model
frame from DeSalvo. It is loved better than the XTP by both riders but not loved as much as the Coustellier.The paint is usually an impeccable piece of art done right here in Colorado Springs by Spectrum Powdercoat.They did the bassboat paint on the old schwinn homegrowns ,and the pimp Yello rock shox dukes.They are probably the best price/quality/weight
frame available but still wil run ya about 700 bones. the one at web cyclery is the old model ,good but not best.Frame geometry has really changed in the last two years .Depending on your skill level, this can mean nothing at the beginning stages ,or really hold you back at a pro level.
You've definately come to a good forum ,we will flame you and humiliate you, and educate you like no other forum can!
