    Once a beast...always a beast. I know if I was a manufacturer, I'd be seeking his services for R&D much sooner than later.

    Props to Intense. I haven't wanted one of there bikes since the M1 first debuted - just not a company I am attracted to - but after watching that, I got the "oh, I want that" tingles. I'd say that's some successful product marketing.

    noticed kovarik's running a dropper post, but has it at what looks like full extension most of the time. any guesses as to what it would take to get kovarik to put the saddle down?
