from the looks of it, one of the lighter frames out there. very clean as well. the quick custom geo thing must kick ass - no waiting for a mule that probably feels quite different than the end product.

@adam_schaeffer - with the whole eyelets discussion thing... this is a bike that is meant to get every last drop of performance. i believe a trunnion shock has better performance related to everything in the shock being... bigger. ya, it could be an expensive wear point, crappy coarse threads on the fasteners, and blah blah blah. but if there is no other technology available that will offer better suspension performance, what would you do if your salary was directly related to your race results?
