    The current 1065 LevelBosses are actually 1085 or 1080, is that correct?
    What length fork is it designed around?

    thanks,

    ps, why dont they change the name? :slap:

    1085 .... around the koxx fork.



    Do you have any idea how much money they would waste printing 1085 stickers while they have shit-tons of 1065 stickers?


    back to renn art history :greddy:

    Okay, so why did they name it a "levelboss". Wow, what a neat name. I should tell Planet X to rename my Zebdi to "slanted down tube"

    The whole sticker thing amuses me. why didn't they order the number of stickers to match the number of frames they projected making, and how in the hell do new stickers cost so much

    buy new stickers...take old off, put new on...koxx is all about money, why the hell would they bother wasting it on trivial shit like that? They sell quite a few frames, they really only care about money.

    clearly 'cause they were too busy eating freedom fries to realize what the hell was going on. Who knows? Maybe they didnt expect the frames to evolve to be even longer so fast? I sorta put my money on that...That the market (or team even?) desired even longer bikes than the 1065 and koxx had not predicted when that would happen, but then again i ride a short wheelbase bike so my opinion SUCKS

    Fuck that. I"m not going to buy a bike called John Holmes. Listen to how it sounds:

    "I"m gonna ride John Holmes"
    "I'm gonna hop John Holmes to that pole"

    BWWAAAa haa haaa

    I'm naming my Planet X: "Brittney Spears"
