    I hate to say it, but I haven't even had the chance to get a good look at the D.O.P.E system yet. I messed around with it for a minute on a display stand we had, and I rode a Coiler with it in the warehouse, but that's about it.

    I would guess, since the system bolts to the frame of the bike, that it will not be compatible with anything older than a 2007 model. I don't remember exactly, but I think it mounted by a bolt and not a clamp, so that should be the case.....

    Yep. I jusst looked at some of the pics, you can see it on the pics that were posted on this forum. On that Stinky Primo (yes, it's pink, and yes, it looks very cool in person) There's a nub that sticks out for a bolt where the system attaches. The same thing can be seen on the backside of the CoilAir Supreme. I don't know if a clamp for older models will be made, or if it would even be safe.

    I hope that helps,
    Joe.

    While were on the subject of questioons for Joe.. How come we don't get the lower end steel frame bikes like the Lava Dome in Australia?

    Is there any plans for them to ever come to Aus?

    Hi, fejfighter,
    You know, i really have NO idea what D.O.P.E stands for. I haven't heard once. Funny! And I am dead serious, I just don't know. Digging will commence tomorrow in the AM.

    Joe.

    Hey dopey,

    Hm, maybe you can clear up what D.O.P.E stands for.

    To answer your question, we don't offer the Lavadome as a frame-only anywhere. Just the Explosif. (And Unit, and Explosif 2-9 and Unit 2-9)
    If you are asking about complete bikes, that is up to the distributor in Autralia. Europe gets a couple different bikes than the U.S and Canada, Russia has some funny bikes, etc, etc.

    thanks joe, i hope the digging yeilds the results we are desperate to know
    my mate just got an 06 stinky deluxe and i was thinking about going one better -whne it comes out

    as far as dopey's question i think he was talking about whole bikes, just based on steel frames,

    Dopey: the distributer is groupe sportif for australia but i am not sure of their contact details

    Does D.O.P.E. = Floating Brake

    Are you guys talking about the floating brake on the 07's?

    If so, I think it is a brilliant idea. I've got the floater on my 05 Stinky Supreme and love it.

    I hid in the bushes and asked a guy who was taking out the rubbish. He said and I quote

    "Double Overhead Poop Extender"

    Boy, I wish I could. I have one of those King Zings. It's really a thing of beauty. Rides as nice as any road bike ever could, I think.
