    You know, I just don't see what you guys see in these bikes. To me, they are just plain and ugly . . . . just plain ugly I guess.

    I know, I know, it's not how they look, it's how they ride. If I'm going to pay that kind of money though, it better look AND ride like million bucks.

    just an observation but it may be that they are geared in many respects to a younger generation of riders, the 40 plus category isn't that strong in the DH world. They are pushing the envelope in terms of aesthetics and its obviously working

    What's up with the pinch bolts on the head tube of the Supreme Racing 1 or am I just seeing things?

    I've found my next bike. The more FR oriented one looks like it would be a total money mini DH race bike.

    And for those who were wondering, there are different sleeves that get pinched into the headtube that make the HA adjustable.

    Yeah, they look a little better. Maybe they'll mail out new decals for everyone who was stuck with the uberghey 08 sticker kit...

    Looks dope. Head Angle looks a tad too slack for my preferences, but other then that the geo is dialed.

    Looks a lot like a DHR and probably rides like one too.

    +/- 3 degrees is A LOT. I think Corsair's adjustable headtube is +/- 1.

    Aye - but with todays realm of difference in DH/FR bikes, 3 degrees would be about perfect. And I was thinking the inserts went in increments for a total of about 3 degrees either way. But I may be WAY wrong on that one.

    Supreme Racing gets 1.5 degree of headangle change
    Supreme DH gets 3 degree of headangle change

    its super easy too, you can change it in under 2 min with a 5mm
