A couple of updated images of my XX Team at a ride in August 13. I can report that I really like the shifting and the brakes on this bike.

Hey T.,

Diggin' the XX Cuda for a couple reasons, you landed the bike you were always after, and for the amazing frame save!

My years of BMX riding and racing demand I be open minded to others' set ups, never for me to say what is comfy for one set of cheeks over another... that said, your saddle position looks really uncomfortable to me. Is that your chosen riding position? I'm not takin' a piss and tryin' to twist 'ya up, I'm just wondering if the seat is how you want it or is it just an angle issue when you snapped the photo?

" D " you look at the picture of his stable of bikes against the fence and you will see that all of his bikes seat are set the same....I noticed that right off, but like you figured that is the way he likes it so who am I to say different. You guys hate Scram and I love it...grant you would NEVER catch me with anything under the top model because the low end SUCKS! RIDE ON T....Your bikes are badass even with the saddle tip down!!!!!

P.s.... If you look at some of the new saddles the nose is tip down to reduce pressure on the " NERVES " (if that is what they want to call it so be it ) while doing climbs or something like that.

Actually.. I was experimenting with positions to counter a receding wiener situation.. But found I was wearing my cycle pants too tight.
