Nice bike, my guess is they make more on this than the supreme which is what you'd want if 1-2 seconds matter. Alot less servicing on this one too.

For a minute I was like, "Hey racer boys, check out the Fest Series for some instructional guidance and inspiration." Then I watched Gee Atherton's POV video and shut right up. The run-ins to these jumps are just as crazy as the jumps themselves.
