GT 2014: Four models of the Fury - and Two Trailbikes: 650B Sensor and Force
Cables can be replaced, you can buy aftermarket downtube protection (or make your own). What worries me as far as damage, is the 3 inches of suspension linkage that hangs damn near straight down from the bottom bracket. IMO that will be the bikes rock catcher and weakest point, at least for the rocky trails I ride. What do you guys think?

Norco Range Killer B - First Ride
Mute point Is debatable. But most say it's just a common misspelling. Unfortunately for nit pickets like you I don't really spell check, and my phone doesn't really recognize 'moot' as a typical word. But thanks for educating me.

I do apologize for ranting a bit there. and although I get where your going Maveri20, people obviously care. Tomothy said it right, and like most rants they get out of hand and the better point is to just get out and ride what ever bike you decide to buy. To make mends with Joe, I agree my grammar can always be better, but yours was not perfect either. Mute point. I understand and respect your reply post, good points that were much more geared towards you vs the mass market.

Norco Range Killer B - First Ride
Lol , oh joe so defensive. I respect your opinion and I am not to sure that there was anywhere in my post where I said, joe this is what you need believe. In fact for someone who defends there opinion by telling the other to not share his opinion is quite an odd concept. To get past this issue you should look at my post as more of a discussion point. And let's be honest only a self infatuated pompous ass would go on a public site to post a opinion with out any angle of trying to reason/ discuss/ or show a reality/truth or being willing to humble themselves to maybe understand a view point.... And before we get carried away on alternative wheel sizes for DH, this article/bike is not in a downhill category. All I was doing was commenting and establishing a baseline of where your bike opinions come from. And further more, I do realize that it would be silly to expect you to video all your rides but not as silly to expect that the ONE video you posted wasn't because you wanted to show everyone on a public site the trails you don't usually ride, with a lesser amount of skill, and of course not as stylish as you ride either. Those are always my intentions as well.... And as an end note sorry for the aggressiveness of this post but I did mean it cause I didn't like your return post. Have a good day and don't get to angry. And yes I do question a 29ers role in downhill, as of right now 26in DH bikes all the way.

This is for you Joe and I don't want to come off to harsh because you did comment on your first posts aggressiveness, saying this i do want to point out that the beauty of Pinkbike is that i can click on your name and watch the video of you riding your DH/FR bike on your local trails. And the reason I am posting is because there seems to be a stereotypical wall that 26inch fanboys (and there is ALOT of good things about a 26in bike) can't seem to get over. This wall is that you just can't have as much fun with the "style of riding/trails that i/you do". So while watching your video I just can't see any difference of fun factor that you are having that i could have on my 5in FS Kona Satori 29er. I would rail the same corners then get the same amount of air w/ the same amount of style, and land with the same amount of smile that you do. So in the end I am not sure there is any "ideal" bike within our riding skill, riding style, or typical riding trail. In the end, to bring this back to the 650b wheel size is that I am positive that someone will be able to have just as much fun as you will riding a FS 650b with out any downsides that a "26in fanboy" is worried/adamant about.

Morpheus - Name the Prototype DJ Bike Contest
Heres a list; Morpheus: Icarus - Greek myth of a flyer Morpheus: Daedalus - Greek myth of creator, flyer, and father of Icarus Morpheus: Feste - Famous shakespearean jester. "wise enough to play the fool" Morpheus: D. Belle - Father of parkour Morpheus: Parkour - self explanatory Morpheus: Garrote - commonly known as a tool of execution but is also the tool/pole that men used in Salto Del Pastor. "As salto del pastor has now developed into a folk-sport, the garrote is also used in competitive events, which include climbing up and jumping over walls, speedy descents down steep rocks, precision leaps, acrobatic feats and leaps of various styles." Enjoy!
