    coolest bike ever

    don't know if you know who ross schnell is, he races bikes n' stuff. he also co-owns the shop in town.

    so he comes into the shop with his new bike that trek built for him. a full suspension carbon singlespeed. this is the bike he will use to defend his title in the single speed world championship race in new zealand next week.

    what a kick ass bike. it's stupid light, has cool graphics, and is just plain sick.

    Y'know part of me has a knee jerk reaction against ultra high end modern bike technology, but I bet that thing is REALLY fun to ride.

    I'm sure Ross is a nice guy, but I do believe that taking off a derailleur and putting on a tensioner has been done before.

    I was about to ask about that. What's the advantage in this case?

    No I saw that. I mean, what is the mechanical advantage over NOT having a tensioner? Why put it there?

    I wouldn't be caught dead ridding that, but then again the SSWC wouldn't be caught dead letting me race, so I'm going to shut up.
