The BB cups went in smooth on ours. The video was cool I think some hot lights would have helped.

Yeah no other riders have noticed it doing it. Very fast riders number 1 ranked 19-25 Cat 1 in US a few very capable Pro's riding down very steep technical trails.

There is not a trail at Mammoth at this level of Tech sure maybe for 20' thats about it. I have ridden about 15 different DH bikes over the years. I rode Tunnel on it noticed no brake stiffening. Didn't notice on the faster trails up here either.

"I am still curious about this bike's performance while braking."

There is very slight stiffening of the rear I think. I didn't notice it today on a trail that drops like 2100' in about 1.5 miles and is rock filled very steep and loose. But another rider said he thought it may be doing it. If you can't tell is it really happening?

"what is it like shifting under full load? and how is it pedal neutral aspect perform?"

I have shifted going down under pretty heavy load I was not tilting bars super far but it was probably about 80% and it was fine. I will take it out in parking lot and do some laps see how it feels. If you pedal over rough terrain the bike will benefit you a lot. You can pedal over just about anything and feel nothing in the pedals.

"What's it weigh, frame+gearbox only?"
The frame now is about 12lbs and the box is about 2.5 lbs. The total of the 1 we have built is 41LBS with real DH parts on it.

"One thing that concerns me is the 135mm spacing on the Alfine hub causing the mid section to be overly wide and riders knees knocking into it. Probably a non-issue, as there are bikes with big rocker links making FS bikes that wide in that area."

Had one 2 months now and I have only noticed it a few times riding it. So it is not too bad.

Pretty funny what a small number of teams there are. Just isn't much money I guess. You can tell people running the race organizations don't have a clue of how to get money flowing in. (:

No I just use various version of BW films and send it off to get developed scanned for me. Scanning the MF at highest resolution was crazy expensive the place in LA with large drum scanners was charging out the wazoo. The Nikon Coolscan 9000 is supposed ... more »

I sold the 645D about 4 months ago. I have two film 35mm but only use em for B/W images. I wish I still had the Mamiya actually but the new Pentax 645D would make way more sense it just costs 9X the amount. My next catalog shoot may help purchase that! ... more »

Who are you guys using to edit your images? What production houses or are you all doing the post work yourselves?
