There is nothing tame about it, nothing calm about it, in fact, its down right intimidating. Tough to maintain, tricky to tune.
Bikes can certainly be built for top end. Look at Larry "spiderman" McBrides times. 5 second quarter miles. I dont think there is anyone here that would argue that fact of that not being top-end fast.
Thanks for listening.
Do you go to lebanon valley much?
