    My new 5 spot/ new love

    This bike is amazing it should be called the life saver. It is such a better bike then I am a rider, I can't wait till I have the confidence and skill to take my hands off the brake.

    the other problem is that the bike is very large, it being a sasquatch and making sharp turns is not my strength yet. oh, and yes my smile is certainly tatooed to my face. It is great when you spend so much money and have a product live up to the hype

    LOL! I didn't even notice the bike was big, until I saw the pic w/o the owner...dude you are a sasquatch.

    Damm! is that a DOUBLE ST gusset??? Woah! I guess DT worked OT to get it right. I love how he does not just scale a bike but tweaks each frame's design based on it's size.

    Enjoy! I can tell you that you have not yet begun to appreciate the bike... I just did 2hrs last night and 3hrs this morning. Mine just keeps getting better with each ride. I just wish it would stop calling me names like "whimp" a "Wuss" and constantly insisting I take the harder lines.

    Cheers gears and beers!

    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Not just double ST gussets, but check the HT, one under the TT and one under the downtube.

    Nice bike BTW, an XL with all that post makes for one tall ride. Kinda reminds me of Shaq's Harley.

    I still have to wait

    to receive my sasquatch, which I have ordered a couple of days ago. It will be a blue one and will replace a XL XCE. I just spent riding the XCE 4 days in the valais swiss alps during eastern holiday. We had beautyful weather and rode some of the most exciting swiss trails there.
    Congratulation to your 5 spot!
