    Well I have about a half hour on the bike and it feels realy nice. Comming off of my Kortz wich has almost the same geo but just alittle shorter wheel base I jumped on and had no problem riding the bike. When I jumped on it I did feel the wheel base was shorter and that it pivits around the front wheel faster than the kortz. When on the rear wheel I felt no real differace from my kortz, both are nice and stable on the rear and I feel that on two wheels the neon is slightly more stable than the kortz. I have done about 5 pedal up's and afew pedal up's to front. The pedal up's to rear I cant say yet if its easyer than the kortz but pedal up's to front seem to take alittle less effort. The frame feels just a stiff as my kortz at this point, everything went together realy well and the chain has alot more clearance around the stays than the kortz. As of now I like it just as much if not more than the kortz :run:. The first big ride will be on it tomorrow afternoon and I will update everyone on my thoughts of the bike.

    Here are some pics.

    That bike stands alone. Huba Huba!

    Yea, meh thinks the flames make it bad ass. For a guy like me, not too good because it will be desecrated in just a few months.

    Nice SX!

    Sweet looking bike, your brakes look like you couldn't get your fingers on them though, they are nearly straight down! :noes:

  11. When I see your name I am expecting to see the history of the bike and bios for all bike riders known to man.

    Your post was a disappointment, but that is normal.

    Bad Bud... Nice build baby... lets see that pedal up tire action when you get some ride time.

    how the hell do people ride with their brake levers pointed down like that? theres no way i could get my arse behind the rear tyre and still be able to hold onto them!
    I do kinda like the down tube on those frames.. Not bad mate..Hows that front brake holding up??
