    It's an iDrive, Fury. Looks awesome though!

    Very neat looking bike, anything with Nico gives me a boner because I'm old like that. Their current DH bikes are super sick though... I wish companies didn't feel pressured to come up with new shit every other year. Just imagine how rad our bikes would be if a company picked a good design and massaged it over the seasons. I know the FPS has been around for quite awhile, but man is it sick.

    Also, iDrive FTW.

    I want to see it compressed. Is the BB mounted to the swingarm under the main pivot?
    I know it wont be but it looks like a URT

    but are they in front of the seat tube, integrated with the top tube? b/c that's a really slick design! its funny how the smallest details really catch your eye
