I am trying to get the mountain bike built up and all I need is a fork. No word from Manitou on that topic so I am ordering a Reba today. I checked with Nick Martin on what he might have access to but he is cleaned out, and Tilford is probably jet-setting around the world somewhere.
Bike frames. Let me tell you. Here is another plug for a sweet sponsor. Masi frames. The Abercrombie and Fitch Pro Devo Team kills it on Masi 3VC carbon HM frames. It is the most reactive frameset I have ever been on, it has a bullet-proof finish, and is flawless. The bike is a crossbreed of a sprinter and a climber. Shortened chainstays with an average length in the top tube gives you a bike that allows you to settle in but jump when you need it to. Plus, Tim Jackson at Masi rules the earth so there are even more plus points to add on. Check them out at www.masibikes.com or get to your local Masi dealer. And hey, they have a history to them as well. Italia all the way. Ciao -Ian
