    BMC is not a licensed dw-link user. No gold tooth for me, gotta fight for every penny I've got!

    I guess if you subscribe to the "no news is good news" theory then its awesome!! No, seriously though, things are going great. All office actions are completed I think, and we are just about there I am told. Just playing the waiting game, but all the dates are set back in the past, so for me, I am content with waiting. When they issue, it means a lot of work for me, so a little down time isn't the worst thing right now. Enjoying the calm you could say.

    Oooh, this should be a good one to watch. (Throws a bag of popcorn in the microwave, pulls up a chair, pops open a cold brew).

    Here a toast to you, Dave: May your future successes include the sale of tiny "dw-link™" chainstay decals to 'Giant' corporations.

    BMC actually has been selling these DW link bikes though QBP all of 2005. These 2006 models are the second year of this frame. I guess one of the original posts said that.

    I got in a arguement with my bud who is taking on Ironhorse this coming year about BMC. He didn't notice that they were very similar in suspension design. He thought the BMC rode different than the MKIIIs, but that could be from the MKIIIs being a 5.5" bike and the BMC setup for 4".
