Team U.S.A. sent all their sponsored pro riders their latest prototype full suspension singlespeed frame: The Army Recon.

hmmm, that prototype SS bike looks alot like this SWEEET 21-speed folding mountain bike!!
That's their production model. The team version has an extruded metal dingus on the bottom bracket shell and is built with Carbalonium Matrix, which is essentially a mixture of carbon, chromoly, aluminum and some titanium. The SID fork and XT wheelset should arrive tomorrow.

From what I understand Carbalonium Matrix is the strongest lightest weight material out there, so having said that it's gotta be around $5,000-$10,000!

The team issue frameset isn't available to the public yet, but expect to pay at least eight thousand when it does hit the market. Of course, they gave me this one and pay me to ride it since I'm such an incredibly gifted rider.

Does team issue include an upgrade on the woman, or does it stay the same. Just curious- either way, I am not complaining.

"The extruded dingus on the shell makes this an exceptional SS woods weapon!"

This compelling propaganda comes directly from the upcoming
ARMYRECON promotional brochure. That's Sizzler's little sister in
the promo photo, BTW. (She's awesome.)

Man, I dreamed of her and the bike last night. That bike has got to be sex on wheels, only the safe kind, and the kind that doesn't call several months later with surprising news.

Actually, that's my brother and the sad part is he thinks he's passing, but if you guys are into him then maybe he's right?

The SID fork arrived and the rear triangle is back from the custom painters. Things are really coming together!

She's looking sweet!! Only thing is, the steerer tube looks way too short, or maybe you're gonna be using a Carbalonium Matrix Stem?? if thats the case then you're all good!!

recon bike should be well camo'ed, right?
Sizzler has a secret. It's not actually a US Army bike, it's a Swiss Army bike. You can tell because it's red and it folds.

P.S. Actually Sizzler has lots of secrets.
