That a dream trail for me, who's local trails a windswept & slick with mud :roll:


You know, there's plenty of excuses to visit Las Vegas. One that goes hugely overlooked is that whatever it is you do professionally there's a convention for it here. So, you justify the trip in the name of business, professional advancement, etc. and once you're here rent your favorite Santa Cruz full susser and hit the trails. :wink:

Thought not, looks a little fragile, been offered a few of these, in various guises but always felt the lower pivot looked on the small and under engineeered to stand much hammer,(No 4 foot plus drop offs then?) hence the Turner licensed improved version with oversize replaceable bearings.

The AMP is a pure XC machine and as such is engineered appropriately (read light and intended for fast, small-hit riding). If you're looking to negotiate 4ft.+ drops then you probably ought not be considering this bike to begin with. It's kinda the whole "don't bring a knife to a gunfight" thing...

Considering the exchange rate it might be worth it to take one home when you're done, especially if you're a gambling man. :wink:
