    WTF? What about the coolness/awesomeness factor? That could scratch soooo many seconds off the stopwatch...

    Anyone who knows their DH knows nothing beats a bike with an Agip sticker...

    Clearly Steve Peat is back on Orange for 2013 and this is his new steed. I'm surprised this hasn't hit the 2012 team rumor and speculation thread.

    These bikes remind me of the Quebec kids at Bromont rocking .243 hardtails with 24" rear wheels and 1st gen 888s at max extension. This guy appears to share the PSP intellect as well.

    I want one of those bikes so bad for my "get drunk and ride to the bars" bike. ....except that last one rocking only the lower crown, that' one's a little scary.

    I think that orange would survive the Monterey, Ca. bike path. I would also add neon lights and a horn.

    he retro-fitted a jackshaft?? this can't be the work of a sane mind. at first glance it looks like a 10 yr old bodged these bikes together, and they're obviously unusable offroad, but there a good bit of skill involved fabbing this drivetrain, as well as at least a cursory knowledge of suspension / drivetrain interaction, which suggests someone older. the most confounding bikes ever devised. insanity or genius works of art, you decide. or some industry guys having a laugh.

    So wow.

    Besides the rack issue, check out that shock. Even dropping of a curb's going to cause some damage...
