 Sick bike. I reckon those 2011 circus fork were damn ugly though. Probably a really nice fork I might add.

 i thought the frame looked a bit chunky. The normal amps arn't so over built are they? the stickers are pretty damn tacky too.

 do amps have adjustable horizontal dropouts now?

 It's funny that you (ryan-irvine) say the stickers are tacky, as those are his sponsors, and he HAS to have them on his bike.

 Yes, that thing he runs comes from Trickstuff!

 I thought so. Why are they calling it a prototype? Trickstuff is producing this thing for years...

 Hydro-gyro from Straitline? Stoked. I just know its not going to be leaky like everyone else's designs

 when do you think they will be available?

 Mike is just spilly talking, what you see is a machined part we modified to keep Mike from needing to modify our stem. We never made it but we are working on one with Mike that can take abuse. As usual, when it's ready it's ready.

 If you need someone to test it, I'll even come pick it up Razz

 Goss rode a cannondale chase frame in 08

 from the video, it appears the brake tab in the rear was grinded down so he can run the smaller rotor. That thing is dialed. Montgomery is probably my favorite rider right now, that dude can throw down!

 That's the nicest amp out there by far. It looks like the chainring should be rotated 90* on the spider if I'm not mistaken.

 Wicked pics as ever m8 and a sorted edit J.B,that is one bombproof rig.And M.M is one lucky man.Loving that Straitline prototype stem/gyro combo,it'll be interesting to see what it retails for if it sees production.

 Did anyone else notice how the bottom headset cups arent integrated like the normal Amp frames are?
  • 1 0
 I picked up one of these frames and it’s a ec34 bottom cup and a 44mm zero stack top cup, my other amp (also a Mike Montgomery) was campy 45x45

 Thanks Radek! That means a lot! It is for sure a dual effort from Devin and I! Stoked to see what happens this year for Mike as well!

 All nice, but just noticed the raceface chainring is installed not right, just need to turn it 90degree. so the lightened part stay under the crank arm.

 A Gyro prototype? Trickstuff is making that thing for years...
  • 5 0
 It's not because ONE company is making one, you can't try making one.. If every company would have think that way, everyone would be riding the same bike, same fork, same crank.. etc!
  • 1 2
 I know. But they make a big fuzz about it saying "prototype!" and "stay tuned". It is just that Gyro is trying to make a hydraulic rotor that already exists. More or less the same as if nowadays somebody would say "a hydraulic discbrake prototype, stay tuned!"
  • 3 0
 Do you even understand what's a prototype?
  • 1 0
 I studied Industrial Design. But it's not about what a prototype is... it's about Trickstuff making this thing for years, meaning that this whole new Gyro rotor is not really something to stay tuned for.
