Such a rad trip. Hope to drop some energy nugs or something on the side of I5 for him.

YES. This would would keep many good, but geo-outdated frames out of the landfill. DO IT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!

Saw the Bronson at a race this fall. Looks promising. Wish the 2.3 was a real 2.3. Had a pair of 2.3 new generation WW's, more like 2.1's.
