The best colour so far in my opinion. Wasn't too much of a fan of the green colour to be honest. 

Did the previous batch sell out way quicker than expected? It doesn't seem like that long ago since the green ones were released.

They did, yeah.  Before Christmas we got through a pretty ridiculous number of frames, frame kits and bikes.

Probably not much in it, people were using square taper/Isis bbs, Middleburns, El Gatos, D521s, Hope hubs with ti freehubs, 25.4 bars and stems, HS33/V brakes, skinny chains, plus people weren't putting so much force on stuff with all the 270 tyre taps & post-Danny moves. No one needed rock hard tyres or 40mm rims. I had a Curtis briefly & it weighed a ton, but I don't remember the Pashley 26mhz being too heavy, the 26ghz definitely weighed a bit, my Norco weighed absolutely nothing. I reckon a high quality old school build could be slightly lighter.

24/25lbs was a good weight back then so it's about even.

I have a question, has Danny quit inspired as he has a completely blacked out frame, he makes no mention inspired when he tags his sponsors on his pics and he only mentions Santa Cruz on his instagram bio?
