Huffy's entrance to the DH race scene.



It's still in development, but should be ready for the 2010 wc dh season.

Damn, Huffy did a lot better outsourcing their frames for their Tour de France bikes. Are they going in-house for this? Even Magna has dual suspension, why the hardtail?

I love the single speed w/ track dropouts, wait, izzit fixed? Wow! Go team Huffy!

Nono, its a new design that huffy has been working on. Under the grips there are pressure sensors. Squeeze hard enough, and you'll stop.

Um no, really it's just not funny.

P.S. Huffy was involved in national level gravity racing in the early 90's so the title is inaccurate as well.

If I recall correctly, Huffy had some high end road bikes a few years back. Frames made by Kinesis, so they were hardly 'Huffy' quality.

No, I have a pretty good sense of humor.

If someone was looking for folks without a sense of humor, they would look to the first post of this thread:
