    Hell yeah! I've heard that all the top 30 skiers at Killington wear full face helmets also.

    I'm just hyper by nature. Then again, I've never had a bad day...

    Isn't Johnnie's chrome beauty a Next? It looks very similar.

    Too bad it doesn't have a kickstand, I'd be more interested if it did.



    Got any close-ups of that awesome looking bash guard??

    Agreed, better off spending a few hundred more and get something low end from a real mountain bike manufacturer (Cannondale, Trek, etc....). 1 day at Killington on the fire roads will kill that bike (speaking from experience as when I was young and dumb I thought my Murray could handle the big K and it failed miserably).

    Good luck.

    You put 10 guys on those going down killington at hi-speed and you have a real chinese downhill. I would pay to see that carnage.

    our favorite son paid $200 for his bike and you're telling him it's better to spend $600?

    why? especially at the price range of $200-500, isn't it all about the components on the bike and not the frame? why pay for a brand name frame like cannondale or trek for a cheap bike?
