Doh!!!, I've just reallised when I was looking at this months bike of the month that you have to submit your vote by clicking on the box thingy, where do you submit your vote on this one though as no box as come up and I never normally seem to see it. Damn it maybe I could of saved gripshift from being uncool.

Un cool un cool and totally uncool.

Scant has however become Super Hyper Cool if he can provide pics of beating a proflex to death. He could change his little Fat Chance photo for something hard core.


Come on they were un cool then and are......(ok they got the pivot point correct before any one else) relly uncool now.

Surely this alone makes them cool given that some manufacturers are still struggling!! :)

Seconded!! My first ever full susp experience was on that original trek (9000?) After that a proflex seemed great.... but I still don't think they are cool.

Im gonna sit on the fence....(using a local motion frame pad for comfort)
