    Its a Lenz Sport Pro Descender
    It had a world cup under its belt
    the pivot is actually around the bottom bracket so there is no chain growth I have a single speed kit on the hub

    That will look rad with the Halo and Hadley deal. Any custom coloring on the hubs?

    I like the look. What is the point of a clear powdercoat? I was thinking of leaving mine stripped and unfinished.

    You can leave it raw mothers mag polish has a wax in it
    but to tel you the truth I am lazy with stuff like that so I would rather just be able to spray it down and it gives the metal a layer of protection

    I am going to leave the chainguide on I dont know if it would fall off if I take it off but it matches up with the bash guard so I figured I would leave it on

    he based his original ski bikes around his DH line namely the brawler

    i'm pretty sure he's still making bikes.

    he's moving a lot into the ski bike scene as of late.

    once again he's ahead of his time with his ski bikes. the full on custom frame one's are amazing.
    Proud to represent Mojo Wheels.

    Yes Lenz sport is still making bikes he hand makes everyone and the guy is an artist when it comes to his welds. He is currently focusing on 29" bikes he was one of the first to make a 5" travel 29er. He is also focusing on the ski bike but give him a call he might be willing to part with a pro descender frame if he has it kicking around the shop.
    The shock was pushed 2 yrs ago and its still sweet it needs a tune up though
    I didnt like the sticker so I changed it
