    No luckily the only thing damaged was the rim. I think it's the angle of the picture thats funny.
    And I didn't really hit anything. Just went down a wrong route onto a down downhillers track whilst beeing egged on by a gopro hd behind me. So I ended up hitting a jump at some speed that I wasn't prepared for and went up instead of forward. That's all I remember really. Was just looking up tangled in my bike about 15mtrs from where I think I landed.

    Good times

    haha yeah i guess it should, but on monday i will be getting the wheel back,i can't wait.

    Most people on here hate the saddle, i don't get it really they look really good.
    I got my saddle on ebay, they also do it in a solid leather in black and brown and i think maybe white as well but the best one is mine because it is awesome.
    as for comfort i can't say i have ridden a bike as comfortable as this one before so I'm going to say it amazing, is a bit tricky to attach to a Hope Eternity seat post
  • i dont have a hope post so thats a Plus hahahha! have been searching and found a few, will add them to the watching and spare cash fund!! :-D
