    2013 Podium drool factor...warp 10!

    OMG is all I have to say. You know, I expected a lot. And looking at the pics, and the cool top tube bumpers, I knew a lot of work went into this frame. I even thought I appreciated the wrap around chainstay. But all of it was sweeter in person. Words and pics do not do it justice. My favorite is the semi-octagonal tubing throughout, including the wraparound chainstay. You can barely make it out in the pic, but instead of just rounding the corners on a square tube, the corners are beveled at 45 degrees. It is like some of the work on the Chilcotin, just improved at every possible juncture. Very happy to say the least. Here is a taster:

    Looks great. I need to move to the mountains so I can justify such a work of art.

    I agree. There is a lot of cool things going on with the Podium. There are similarities with the Chilcotin and Endorphin, but the Podium just seems to have a bit more. It is sexy and refined, while industrial and bada$$ at the same time. Wait until you ride it!!!
