Very nice!  How are liking the FXR loaner?  Is it as stiff as they claim?  How about the Cornutt?  I was seriously considering one as a replacement for my classic Blur but my affections have since turned to a Knolly Endorphin - http://www.knollybikes.com/frames/endorphin/index.aspx
I just need to get through the kitchen remodel and see if I have any money left for a new toy.

i get fitting on it tonight - I will give you a full rundown after the weekend ride - I did the old ride it in the parking lot test and stood up and cranked hard and got zero pedal bob and it soaked up a speed bump much better than my santa cruz would have - it seriously pedaled easy for a 6 inch travel bike - I am sold on curnett

Tell the wife you are going out of town for the weekend and head up to FATS in S. Carolina with me tomorrow to properly test the new sled  ;)

Enjoy it!

Take the FXR to santos while you got it and go play on the jumps and drops. What model is the one that your getting?

Be careful, you may want BOTH.  That FXR is smokin' hot!  I look forward to a full on thrashing review.  Remember and old motorcycle adage, "Ride it like you stole it!".  I am sure that will be an interesting transition, 6.5" travel huckster, to XC racer  ;D

I am getting a Foes racelite-s w/curnett up (they are not on the Foes site yet) it is a 3.5 inch travel race bike - I was lucky enough to get one of the first ones to be produced
