    Huh....cool. So I am guessing the 1100.00 buck titanium price, or are these more than the Ti 96ers are?

    Would be great to see Carver do an aluminum model too.

    I raced that bike in the pic in the VT winter challenge. Man, it is fun.

    Cool bike. Greg Matyas of Speedway Cycles in Anchorage AK and myself designed this and went through Davis Carver for production. Itís a little disappointing to see this picture of our bike being sold as a Carver, but I guess thatís how it goes in this business. I will say that the $1000 price tag is not accurate.

    It isn't on the website, so maybe this is a one off or custom.

    Cool bike, but I'm more interested in the setup of your mobile bike repair trailer. How's business?

    ...mobile shop...

    Thanks bme107, I cover the entire Capital District(Albany NY) and parts of MA,NJ,PA and Richmond VA. with my Mobile Shop. For the last 16 years I"ve been doing bicycle repairs right at customers homes and business locations. I carry virtually every part needed for reparing everything from $79.00 department store bikes to $5,000.00 IBD wonder bikes. The concept (all puns intended...Concept Bikes!) has taken off so well that I"m thinking of setting up a well suported Franchise program. I really believe that my business was destined to prosper...no one else does what I do...pretty good Idea that Our Lord Jesus gave me huh?...big and tall
