    Its oldschool from 2001 with pull shock



    Two National Titles in 2000
    Longest travel downhill bike in the world
    9"-11" travel with 2.0" stroke shock and 11"-14"
    travel with 2.75" stroke shock
    Rear swingarm fits 3" tire with ample mud clearance
    Adjustable bottom bracket and steering angles
    Pull shock design provides constant feel over full range of
    travel without pedal feedback
    Regressive-to-linear design with built-in sag
    Oversized aluminum frame 6061-T6
    29 CNC machined parts
    Interlocking FSR bearing pivot (patent pending) for easy
    removal and maintenance
    Standard Hayes (8" rotor) rear disc mount

    But the wight :-)

    Does anybody know if the GSR still make bikes?


    Lets talk about burly bikes with more than 10inches of travel :-)

    I wonder....would that make it so that when sitting still the bike would have a horendously steep head angle to compensate for bottom bracket height? And once you were about 1/3-1/2 way through the travel it'd balance out to a normalesque head angle?

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Nothing corners better than a bike with a 18" high bottom bracket.
    Maybe the bike is meant for blind people who want to do downhill. No need to watch where you're going.

    Swoop got second in beginer, the other guy looked way slower so I don't know how he lost. Alloy was first in expert....6 seconds off the pros best. I raced expert my first time and got 13 out of 16....was very happy...if I raced sport my time would have won.

    While I am not sure I think that the dual shocks can work together for a plusher ride or you can have it so the air shock stops it from bottoming. I think that is how Benders was set up. I may be wrong?
