Is that Doug Lexington's Ultimate?


You dick!

The Yeti and the Slingshot were my early VRC/RB efforts. You can tell by the use of V-brakes and incorrect parts on the Yeti, followed by the M952 build on the Slingshot (with the bass tube no less). Poorly done on my part IMO. But...you learn. :)

FYI, ^ thats former pro BMX racer, former Yeti welder, and former Durango Bikeworks owner Robbie Rupe. I've ridden with him.. although I wouldn't want to roost a 30-lb Ultimate down Kamizake at race speeds, I'm sure he was more than capable.





[scratch that.. I dream of doing it :wink: ]
