    hey hey hey what is this? ... this is down-right discrimination!!!
    just because of extra gussets and stiffer rear ends and the ability to take a larger tyre ... true ... some have a slightly bigger head ... set ...

    on another note ... please refresh my memory ... ... always nice to see pics ...

    Thanks Whafe

    I'm just back from 3 days riding in North Wales in the UK..
    Over 130km covered and what a blast ! North Wales in the UK Rocks. There where a couple of time where I though I was back in the Alps !
    Photos to follow but no real good jump shots.

    Great to hear that you have had 4 days of riding, that would do me the world of good... Any photos are good photos.... Bring them on, start a thread of 130Km of trails covered....

    Do we have a FR in action thread?

    Was at Woburn this weekend.. some big lines there these days....heres a vid
    of us doing a gap.. no crashes but some sketchy front nose action

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcdWUNxSFMA

    I was the guinea pig doing the first run but im #3 in this edit

    The only crash we had during the day was one of the fellas pushing his bike back up one of the hills.. Lost his footing and fell 5 ft into a bramble bush.. effin hysterical!

    One of those classic days where sessioning with friends is just so much fun!

    A Question for Helius FR Owners . . .

    Does the seat tube length ever bother you? It seems to be inordinately long (18.7" for a medium) on the Helius FR for its intended purpose. I think it might be hard to get behind the seat with that seat tube length. I really like the numbers on this frame with that exception. Chop a couple of inches off of the seat tube and I think it would be about perfect.

    BTW, good looking bikes in this thread.

    For a little extra cash Nicolai will do that for you. AFAIK shortening the seat tube (and removing the braces) costs much less than going full custom.

    Updated XL FR

    Just an update on the FR. Now with a 50mm thompson stem and new formula Oro 18 brakes, which coincidently have better braking performance out of the box than the Juicy 7 Carbons ever had. All that is needed now is my Ti spring.
