    No thanks, I'd break one within the week.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    I'd like to get a 5.5 29er next year... they will be selling it with a custom 5" Manitou fork, hopefully with a 20mm axle. Maybe later there will be other choices besides a WB fork... I rode a Spider 29 and it was REALLY nice, but I want a couple degree slacker HA and a higher BB.

    Did you flip the link on the Faith? Its a nice ride, but why did you ditch the Astrix?

    I actually never rode mine without the link flipped, I've ridden others in "normal" mode and like mine much better. I have nothing against my Huckster, its just a medium and I'm too big and its more FR oriented, now I'm racing DH. I'm 6'1", but my arm span is 6'6" so I need a large and the Faith frame came as a deal. And who am I to turn down a VPP /DWlink rear for cheap? My wife is going to ride my Huckster now, she wanted to give a try, and it was too cool of a bike to sell.

    Who pissed in your fruitloops this morning?

    Looks good to me... 7.2 lbs with the shock, pivot is concentric with the rear axle... its a replacement for the asx, so its probably at least as good. I'll stick with my Uzzi though.

    Did I miss something, or aren't most pivots (besides vpp) concentric with the rear axle. Seeing as how its the rear axle that's rotating along the swing arm.

    Talkin about the rear pivot, not the main pivot. Think brake jack elimination, and also the functionality of that design.

    Yup... DW actually just patented this design, but apparently Yeti has done it before. If DW doesn't fight this one his patent is basically worthless. It should be interesting...

    Ithnu, I know it's a great bike, but that chrome look makes it look like a pacific or huffy.

    Nice stealth color.

    They didn't say what bike, it might have been old enough.

    How would I break one? By riding it, of course. Why would I break one? Because I tend to be hard on bikes and looking at my history of bike failures, this one wouldn't last long.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.
