High Single Pivot big-wheeled monster truck! Everyone who has ridden one seems to say the same as you...BCD has become The Great White Buffalo.

Someone go find Alex Morgan and tell him it's time to unleash all the glory that was BCD in the mid-2000s with garage-built 29er DH bikes. Auto-entry to UCI events for the test pilots of said revamped carbon sleds. Let's mix it up a bit!
