There was a lot of buzz around The Palmer Project Junior Team. Specifically the bike that Shaun Palmer brought out. It was a one-off that was simply beautiful.

Palmer poses with the one-off Aluminum Socom in front of his new Daily Driver a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado SS. The bike is a 6 travel bike with M16 linkage.

Here you can see the Linkage and some of the geometry of the bike.
As you can see, this is a completely new bike that looks like a mash up between Intense's Uzzi and M16 platforms.


Palmer was out on Friday Practicing with the Junior Riders of his Palmer Project team practicing on this bike. He will race it Sunday so it will be interesting to see how the one-off prototype does.

The Palmer Project Shaun Palmer s Jr. Team has a lot of young talent. Here Warren Kniss is riding the Prototype bike featured with Shaun in this recap. It certainly appears to be working well in the conditions at Southridge.

 Any word on the head angle and seat angle? Is he running 160 up front? It was a great showing by the Intense team yesterday. All told, for all categories running the pro track, it seemed about 20-25% were on Intense bikes, with many M9s in the mix.
