1999... Rock and roll, kick ass riding, and Marzocchi girls.
5 inches was a lot of travel.
This very bike checks in at 10:28... Wade Simmons (extreme test pilot) said this was his favourite and he was carrying a backpack full of gear to do dynamic testing of the carbon frame about a decade before Specialized laid claim to this.
There is only one and it was built here... we are going to rid the bike of it's commuting wheels and put it back on the trail for a little more evaluation.
Cranks were also designed and built here...
