    This bike is designed specifically for winning elite level DH races. The bike is slack, low, and light. It will become the benchmark DH frame for racing.

    Prolly not. I think I'll be at the Calgary WC. If I don't go I'll be resting up so I don't break myself or parts before going to Whistler on the 6th

    Nope, 83mm only. Maybe MRP will be making an 83mm set-up but I personally don't know.

    FSA, Truvativ, & Shimano will all be doing 83mm BBs.
