    Yo,

    Check out it built up. I think it looks pretty sweet. Especially since it will probably only cost $550-600 frame only and like $1300 for a complete bike.

    *prices based on other echo and zoo products.

    for those who are too lazy to look there.

    The booster is cool and the frame also comes in a 1065mm wheelbase if 1085mm is too much for ya.

    To me, that frame seeems exactly like a Koxx LB just from looks, and their about the same price.

    Much lower standover, cnc plates at BB, and cnc dropouts. Is there a new Level Boss out with this stuff now? I've been a little off track lately.

    ..oh yeah. I like it. It's a damn fine lookin bike.

    .....higher BB, thicker tubes at the headtube...

    I would say it does not look like a Levelboss.

    that shoter wheelbase option just made this model ten times more awesome than it was before.

    edit- if there were a vee version like they have with the pures i would probably wet my bed.

    God, those tires are ugly, but whatever.
    I might look into one down the road..instead of a Koxx..

    And I'm guessing v-brakes are the latest and greatest?

    No! it's just a great option to have. Not everyone wants Maggies for obvious reasons.

    I should try some v-brakes sometime..can you lock them up as easy with the same pull?

    A well set up V with a grind and good pads has arguably a better lockup than a mag. But I love my maggie, the fealing just outbeats any cable brake. Give them a try HOPHOP you may like that really stiff fealing. But that's the thing. Everybody likes their brake to feal a different way and that is why a V brake option is a great idea.

    i like my brakes to work. which is why i like vees but lets not get into that discussion. it would be awesome if they made this frame in not only two sizes but vee/maggie mounts as well. i would love to see that. i woudl love to see that from more frames.
