The position on the Sting makes no compromises, stretched with the saddle high above the frame, always in control. The Sting is the first choice for racers, marathon riders and all fast riders. The DTC suspension with 100mm active travel smoothens the terrain for you to go fast.

Strengths: pretty light for a 120mm travel trail bike(24.3pounds with pedals),sexy as hell to look at(the teamline edition),extremely well made,super great components(full xt 2009 and not some mix and match crap),fast,grip like its on rails,stiff but compliant
Weaknesses: not much so far
super super bike....better then any big brand(specialized, giant,trek,santa cruz etc)bikes i have tried and with this spec, if made by these big boys...would have been in the 5500usd mark....very fast....i think more closer to a x-counrty race bike then a trail bike but the trail soul is there.fizik tundra saddle can be a bit hard for some but since i m use to road bike saddle,no worries at all.basically a must buy.also superb german detailing and finish

Also re bleeding the Quads, has anyone have better luck bleeding 'em from the caliper to the BMC, ... Read More »

KING "STON" STING
These are some teaser photos. I have yet to put on my NOS yellow Schwinn cables. But, I figure, if there is a King Sting, why not a Kingston Sting?! :lol:
Needs some finishing touches before the inaugural ride!
