What do you think of the 2008 Rocky Flatline DH/FRX bike? Here in Austria and Germany the MTB-forums are full of "experts" who have many facts on how the bike will work or not work with the new hydroformed tubing, how good/bad the new suspension works and so on...! Is there a similar discussion going on in Canada ('cause the first photos of the bike where shot at Whistler Mountain bike park)?
Would be interesting to get your opinion on that bike - keep it rollin' and take care!
Thomas Vanderham has been riding the new bike for several months now and it seems to be holding up quite well. I think Rocky learned some lessons after Simmons broke the RMXs by the dozen when it first came out. From what I have been told there are only a couple of the frames in the world, and they are being held relatively close right now. I tried to pull some strings to try it out, but to no avail. time will tell what that bike turns out like, but I like what I see so far.

there are many experts talk on the same discussions how exactly these bikes work; i have little passage on Ducati 848 what you can look at . . . Ducati 848 is a middle weight super-bike. It is an entry level bike. Its looks are very impressive and striking. The design of Ducati 848 is identical to Ducati 1098. It possesses almost all the virtues of 1098 but on a smaller level. Its maximum speed is 166 mile/h. It is priced at US $12,995. ABS is not available with this bike. It meets Euro 3 emission standards and also complies with US Federal Regulations. Moreover, motorcycle helmets should always be used for riding it.
It has liquid-cooled 850cc DOHC engine that unleashes the output of 134 HP@ 10000 RPM and produces the torque of 96 nm@ 8250 RPM. The bike lacks in Ducati Traction control system as given in other super-bikes. But joe rocket jackets should be worn by the rider
