... and while we are at it maybe me we could could finally solve that age old mystery, "who would win in a fight, shark or bear???"uphillerman said:Bit bored at work so though I would throw this out for discussion. So if you could build the ultimate AM bike what would it be? Stock bike or custom. Lets see what you think...
Statistically sharks are most likely to attack you when you are wet.other aardvark said:... and while we are at it maybe me we could could finally solve that age old mystery, "who would win in a fight, shark or bear???"
Heaps of of great superbikes but its all a bit mind boggling. It all comes down to what suits ones style.
Um no, I meant Koala bear versus gummy shark in the kitchen sink. My money is on the koalahonourablegeorge said:Ibis Mojo HD or Santa Cruz nomad, probably. Or some other bike.
More importantly, is the Bear v Shark fight on land or in water? I assume we're talking Great White vs Grizzly?
And teh example is a bike with a sid forkPimpride said:Start with a lightweight carbon frame with adjustable rear suspension, from DH (7" or so) Down to a shorter XC travel option. Light weight air shock for the rear to keep weight down. Lightweight wheelset that are strong enough to hold up under AM conditions. Also light, but large diameter disk brakes. Strong / Lightweight cranks with an integrated spindle and ceramic bearings (or Hammerschmitt). Include the lightest and most advanced front suspension from Fox, Rockshox, or Marzocchi, depending on preference. Carbon stem / bars. There are many high end full suspension carbon frames.... Probably could build a 25lb or so full suspension rig that is strong enough to ride fast down hill and light enough to ride uphill (like we all used to do).... Full front and rear travel adjustments, where a rider can go from almost rigid to fully suspended with the flick of a switch. Its 2010 and there are some bikes out there that come close, but many are so expensive that we can only dream. ---->
i think kodiak v great white in a tank where the bear can stand and walk but the shark can still swim. i got my money on the shark.honourablegeorge said:More importantly, is the Bear v Shark fight on land or in water? I assume we're talking Great White vs Grizzly?
