    So he should realise that there are KTM FR and DH bikes. Much better than this crappy hunk of metal.

    Slow is cool too, right?

    Holy crap! I actually had one of these! Here's my old one! Heaviest bike in the world! I had mine built up to almost 70lbs. Really fun and surprisingly confidence inspiring though. Plus with all that weight even on a little downhill it gets going stupid fast. The ground clearance is incredible too, even with the cranks down you never hit anything and I mean anything. Maintenance is really expensive though, especially with all the bearings in that thing. It was $130 just to replace all the bearings in the swing arm when I did mine. So it's a rare bike, a fun bike, but not one you'd really want to own. Convince a friend to buy it, then just borrow it!!

    Yikes whats up with the steep HT? I had crappy hard tails with slacker ones than that. Nice Boxxer though, I used to have a red Boxxer back then, had a whopping 170mm of travel
    and that was the longest travel marz and RS made, Fox was just a shock company back then

    Good thing KHS moved on and now makes decent FR bikes

    Also I like the OP's phonetic use of words: hydrolic, LOL

    Why does the top tube bend up? That might be worst idea in the history of bike frames.
