    32.3 lbs??? WOW that's good!

    How much does the frame weight? It's beefy!

    Nice build!

    Nice to see some designs with character, like the Blitz and Evo, but wow they are ugly.. I guess they might grow on you?

    The Chumba Evos are butt ugly (IMHO) but overall I like the Blitz. The one thing I don't like about them cosmetically is the rocker arm. It could be better looking.

    I don't understand why so many people dislike the aesthetics of the Evo.

    Does the Blitz II rocker arm look like a piece of gothic architecture, or is it just me? Or maybe the hood ornament from a 1930 Rolls Silver Shadow? Whatever, it definitely stands out.

    Is that some sort of crazy Titanium cassette? You know, the kind that costs a fortune and shifts like a 12 year old Suntour freewheel?

    to me those rocker arms give it the Versus trade mark... fro ma distance you know what it is and not guessing its a kona, or cove or what have you...the roclr arms look like it was designed from a graphic from an old Flyer bike frame in the 50's... clasic design cnc'd parts with new techology...= simply brilliant. Now for ugly, nothing beats MC San Andreas.. and a close second is norco's VPS monoque all creaks and squeaks included frame.

    I was just bustin' your chops blackagness. I've been known to say "y'all" on occasion myself. Very little that I say that might seem offensive should actually be taken seriously.

    I don't understand the point of a carbon fiber bash guard, wouldn't that break easily against a rock? The rocker arm design needs to go, unless their on your grand ma's schwinn, they don't match the bike.

    Yes, I'm jealous Sick bike, no expenses spared build...32lbs, wow...
