    That's their production model. The team version has an extruded metal dingus on the bottom bracket shell and is built with Carbalonium Matrix, which is essentially a mixture of carbon, chromoly, aluminum and some titanium. The SID fork and XT wheelset should arrive tomorrow.

    From what I understand Carbalonium Matrix is the strongest lightest weight material out there, so having said that it's gotta be around $5,000-$10,000!

    The team issue frameset isn't available to the public yet, but expect to pay at least eight thousand when it does hit the market. Of course, they gave me this one and pay me to ride it since I'm such an incredibly gifted rider.

    Does team issue include an upgrade on the woman, or does it stay the same. Just curious- either way, I am not complaining.

    "The extruded dingus on the shell makes this an exceptional SS woods weapon!"

    This compelling propaganda comes directly from the upcoming
    ARMYRECON promotional brochure. That's Sizzler's little sister in
    the promo photo, BTW. (She's awesome.)

    Man, I dreamed of her and the bike last night. That bike has got to be sex on wheels, only the safe kind, and the kind that doesn't call several months later with surprising news.

    Actually, that's my brother and the sad part is he thinks he's passing, but if you guys are into him then maybe he's right?

    The SID fork arrived and the rear triangle is back from the custom painters. Things are really coming together!

    Sizzler has a secret. It's not actually a US Army bike, it's a Swiss Army bike. You can tell because it's red and it folds.

    P.S. Actually Sizzler has lots of secrets.

    I think I know what Sparty is referring to, and it was going to be a surprise, but Team U.S.A. just sent me the new kit!

    Carbalonium? Ahh crap, you just gave away the newest top secret of top secret stuff radar absorbing bomb deflecting tank armor material of the US military. The cat's out of the bag now! It's also so awesome as material for wheelsets you don't even need tires anymore (as the photo shows).

    That is me in a poster on his mom's wall. And don't mock- it took me four weeks of my iceburg lettuce only diet to get into playing shape. During that time I had three blood clots and had dry poo.

    I don't want to alarm you, but my father was reading through this thread and got pretty upset when he read your post. He said he was going to find you and sew your ass to your face.
