oh yeah the fury
Is that this years DH model as used by the team in different colours? (yellow/blue)
Yeah is pretty ugly, frames have gone somewhat overboard with 'swooshiness' of late!

I wonder how easy it is to locate the shock into the bolt hole on the main frame :lol:

Possibly, but I bet it Fookin flies downhill, which is after all its sole purpose in existing.

True

I owned 2 Orange 5's. Damn fugly too, but still very effective at what they were designed to do

I am all for function before form. If it rides well and looks good all the better ;)

It would look better in mat black at the bottom of a very deep and dark hole.............if your going to make a bike that ugly why bother painting in fancy colours but yes its probably a very good DH steed :roll:
