Click quote on cks first post. Copy paste the code you see in quote. Change path to your image.

Alternatively ck should get on FB.

It's that undefined color that's neither green nor blue.

Artsy Fartsy tangent:
Derided and adored twentieth century "artist" Yves Klein (I use the term generously) made a pretty good living by painting various stuff in the same, same, same blue color. Klein blue, darker than Dale's new ride, but like D's bike the color is in one of several narrow bands that is perceived differently by different viewers, as our visual apparatus is a variable as our personalities and skin color. The ensuing debate generated interest and sold his stuff. Which was mostly (or entirely) pretentious crap, but it paid the bills.

Took it on its maiden ride yesterday. Couple of observations--



1) Loads of fun


2) As previous stated, it can get me to the scene of the crash a lot faster than the 10 year old hard tail it's replacing


3) It makes me appear a lot better mountain bike rider than I really am. I cleared stuff both uphill and downhill much more consistent that previous. It compensates for my suckiness


4) Being in control on fast sweeping bermed is a good thing

Nice bike. The new mountain bikes make it easier to climb and descend stuff that before was considered extreme. It reminds me of the advances in ski technology, where extreme terrain is now attainable by competent skiers with the right equipment, from a safety as well as a performance aspect.
