I'm a f*king idiot sandwich! I'm looking for a 190x45 remote lock out shock and there was a Fox Float DPX2 Performance on bike-components.de for like 270€ and I didn't pull the trigger when I had the chance and now it's gone. Madder

That would have been such a crazy deal.

Talking of crazy deals - guy I met at Rogate bikepark today was on a new Orbea Rallon. Carbon frame, fox performance suspension, mix of GX and XO1 eagle drivetrain. He got the bike new for £2000 Eek

That's €2350, $2600 USD or $3400 Canadian Pesos Eek You can barely get any carbon frame for that money, nwm a whole bike.

He got it from this weird shop in the UK which is mostly an online business but you can also go to their site. The guy went to look at a Nukeproof Mega but the owner mentioned somebody had ordered this Orbea Rallon but cancelled and so it was sat around the shop wasting space (hadn't even been built) - so they owner said the guy could have it for £2k if took it there and then and built it himself.

Nuts.

Levy already realised he f*cked up (check the sizing comment), but i am, for one, looking forward to seeing comments on how it rides. Either something will be great about that weird bike, or it will be a total flop (which is expected).

Either way, the fact that they CAN pull this off and goof around is awesome.
the fact that they disregard the whole engineering team of brands and chose to straight disrespect my field of work, I am f*cking tired of people thinking they know bette
This is the antivaxx movement of bikes

Jesp in all respect to engineers (friends of mine are at JPL, and other aerospace/ defense companies). Engineers are usually a cautious bunch that can often hold up progress in regards to advancing progressive ideas. And that only gets worse in Asian manufacturing (plus that one owner that threw his papers was probably told to ham it up for the camera). I've had to push factories to do things they said couldn't be done only to see it on a competitive product a few months later.

As much as I think Levy's monstrosity is that, it's actually a good example of "getting to stupid quick" to try an extreme idea and learn from it then bring it back to reality.
