    Tosa - Inu in action

    well, being ride the Tosa for almost a month now, and man this bike puts a smile on my face it's has being almost a month since i touch my Banshee, the Tosa is not a huckster but a very capable slope one, and if you trust your guts hold your line and let the brakes go this thing rails it is umbelievable eazy to switch line or bunny hop an obstacle on the Trail.
    I'll post a longe term review on the frame and parts, but so far everything is holding up really good the Travis it's being abused to the max for having only 150mm of travel it feels good on mid size drops 8' to 10' footers to almost flat landing and the Evolver is so butter and not that hard to set it up , just to think the guy on the Nomad he is a Cop, and that MF is fast too, 28lbs Nomad it really is!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Well is Sunday and now i have to get some work done......what a nice weekend !

    Regards

    NICE! Your Tosa is such a unique bike. Love the look and it certainly seems like you've got sweet terrain in Hawaii.

    By the way, how the hell do you get a Nomad with a 66, hydros, and big tires to weigh 28lbs.??? I'm not doubting you, I just want to know because I'm planning on building up an AM bike (Covert) and would like to keep it beefy and under 30lbs. Thought that would be impossible, but apparently not....?

    Thanks.

    I know, but he is using some crazy light parts mid 90's XTR shifters and Der's 8spd cassete Carbon bar and seat post, Selle Italia SLR sadlle, Hope hubs on some XC Mavic Rims, and single ply tires, 2.35 and a crazy road bike STEM , he is not a huckster but home boy fly down the trail and he hits some big rollers too, Oh,the 66 are the air version one.
