    The Blitz II has sweet geo to handle anything you want to to do & beyond. All pivots are needle bearings for torsional ridgidity & smooth action. All bearings have zerk fitting so you do Not have to disassemble to pack grease into them. Customere servive is awesome just call & find out, they will talk to you. 1-888-5VERSUS.

    I just ripped the blitz for days at whistler and no problems. And I'm not exactly easy on my bikes. All post more pics if you want as I get them.

    I actually think the Blitz II is sold out right now. ck. thou. They are making a better version should be out soon.

    Box car drop is fun. Wish it was bigger because you have to grab a bunch of break.

    I don't really know of any online shops with Versus besides Go-ride.

    I'm 90% sure Versus dosn't have anymore until the new III comes out in Sept. I've actully been talking to Herb today what size do you want & color and I can point you in the right direction.

    PM me if you want....
