S. O. G. (Silk owners group)
Does anybody already own a Silk SL? How is it it? Pictures?
Mine should arrive this or next week and I'm pretty excited.
P.S.: I aware of the fact that Silk is not a mountainbike and Mtbr.com is a mountainbike forum
I have an '07 Silk. Built up w/ Campy Record & Fulcrum Racing zero's This bike is smokin!
14.9 lbs and it rides like a dream. Fast, responsive and it looks so hot in red & black.
It is the second frame because I ran into a New Zealand National team member riding on a path way. Wrong SIDE! of the path bruised the frame, and destroyed the easton fork. The bike was probably OK but the guy paid for the repairs and I got a new frame from Ibis on crash replacement. The price was awesome so I went for the new frame.
The bike took a nasty hit and the headtube and frame was perfect, there was just a slight scratch/bruise on the top tube. So I'd say almost bulletproof! I have pix of it on the Ibis Gallery on the website.
I hear the SL w/ Sram Red groupo is in @ 14.0 lbs even! SWEEEEEET!
You will absolutely love your bike!
Congrats on your new "baby"!
