Dave Smutok Bike Check 10

Dave Smutok Shows off his Rocky Mountain Dirt jump and downhill bike for 2010!

Tech nerd specs
Prototype Flow DJ, refined for 2010 with following changes:
1. Tapered HT, for internal 1-1/8 lower race. Benefit: lower stack, stronger front end.
2. New Geo (sloping TT). Benefit: greater standover, more room for moves over the TT, cables out of the way.
3. SS / TT / ST junction redone: Benefit: stronger, much stiffer laterally for off axis landings.
4. New SS and CS: Benefit: beefy CS for stiffness, smaller SS for some shock absorption.
5. Custom half and half paintjob for Smutok.
