    Tank Cycles DH-2

    Has anyone seen or ridden the Tank DH bike? Suspension looks similar to the Yeti DH-9 but it looks like the center of gravity is really high. Not a great bike in the corners? check it out here.

    center of gravity wouldnt be any higher than a Kona. It is a heavy bike though, do a search and you'll find a thread or two on this.

    my bad, i was thinking of Versus which also makes a Lawill type bike, that was the topic of discussion.

    If your interested in Lawills, Rotec will be releasing the RL9, the only 'officially blessed' design from Mert Lawill himself, and the one i would trust. The current pics are prototypes, there are supposed to be some changes.

    I see it and I hope it's a joke.


    As a snow only bike it looks interesting, but I'm not sure about the MTN application as they have it built, kind of reminds me of a Burro.

    Worst bikes ever

    I bought a tank XC bike, and the pivots were so horrible that I sold it before I ever rode it. Stay away from tank.
