Legend 14th March

Frame looks freaking amazing... thats all I can say. Its painted and everything is on it and I'm very pleased with how it went together.

Its just after 1am and the guys didn't show up with the parts until about 11pm so building it is a no go I'm just too tired. I did however stay up long enough to take a whack o pics in the studio and Jason at Sicklines has them and is doing the editing right now. Expect to see him post them up by the end of the day here.
I will take the frame to the show tomorrow and then while everyone is partying after the show i'll build it up in my hotel room for Saturday and Sunday.

Looks sick! Cant wait for testing it this summer. The wheel path looks sublime. Guess the suspesion will work really good even when braking.

Nice Job guys!

Keith Scott said...

yeah suspensiion is designed to be 70% more active than an eqivalent single pivot design, but has that 30% of brake squat designed in to balance the bike but stopping the back bucking up. should make for a stable frame with good braking characteristics due to superior traction than most bikes out there when the brakes are applied.

Interesting, I hadn't thought of tuning the suspension like that for performance! That sounds great, hopefully the riders who are getting Legends will get some good race runs this year. The weights looks really competitive with other high end DH bikes too. All in all, it looks brilliant.

Keith Scott said...

What can I say? I'm just naturally gifted in the art of photoshop!

hahaha, man I wish we had a boxxer WC or a 888 on the front instead of the fox40 as it would suite the paint scheme so much better.

Sneeck said...

So yea what's keeping so long to see some action video's??

Keith,

I see that combination of Durham degree and learned lamination removal skills has paid off!

Good work mate - amazing to see such progression for you guys...

Onwards and upwards.....

Keith Scott said...

hahaha, I know you must be one of about 5 people! hahaha I hate lamanate!

wow!! thats so f'ing sick... i can't even think of words :o

honestly the only thing i would like to see different is the top link red also, but thats purely looks wise :P and depending on color sheme
and like keith said the fox isn't the best...the boxxer with white & red like the scythe would be crazy.

but all in all this is the sweetiest frame ever
