How come my lbs told me I couldnt get one of these frames till February but I keep seeing them pop up. Damn I cant wait for my bike to sell so I can get my hands on one of those frames. Awesome man. what did you use for a headtube reducer? looks like your just using a 1 1/8" top and bottom? no?

I have one more large and medium frame at my shop. PM me if you want one. i ship.

Frames come with a lower cup reducer since no tapered forks are offered aftermarket at this point.

That frame wins in black... Nice. No single crown?

Also, what C.R. do you have there?
My three motos are :06 Honda ST1300 (mini goldwing as i call it.), 08 Kawasaki ZX6r (power commander 3, velocity stacks, K&N filter, and soon to have Akropovic Evo Full Ti / Carbon exhaust and fender eliminator), and then a 1985 Yamaha 650 maxim (Japan model. my dad bought it when he was in the navy stationed over there.)

How do you like the clutch tires? Thinking about picking up a few.
Haven't had a good ride on them yet. So i don't really know. if the weather holds out here in Co i'll ride tomorrow and let you know.

They're light and really tacky compound form install and brief riding breaking in my rotors.

sweet bike! tell us how those wheels hold up!?
Actually they're incredibly strong. They're my secret weapon.. I technically shouldn't be telling you guys about them they're so good. I weigh 150 ish and am smooth, and they've held up to my racing now for a season. I bought a fresh pair for this bike though. They're pricey (read 900 for the set) but are so freaking light.
