Hey, I think I've seen that one going real fast at the front of some races in Southern California:p I love those thin seat and chain stays, it just looks light. That is one cool bike.

WOW! thank you for all the kind words. i love this bike, it was totally worth the extended wait. i have been racing it in the team big bear series and i've had some good luck this year. i originally planned on doing more road races, but i've had so much fun riding the ss it's only recently that i've gone back to building base on the road bike(so that i have more endurance to enjoy the hunter.) people at mtb races are awesome...both geared and ss. one of the coolest things is when your truly suffering on a climb and the geared guys give you the clean line and cheer as you pass or they come from behind on a flat and offer you a draft.

"Any plans to replace the SID with a Hunter rigid?"
i've thought about it it actually. maybe a hunter or even the new dt swiss carbon rigid if they ever get it into production. it's really rocky where i live though so i wouldswap back and forth occasionally.
