The FOUR CROSS
This bike is the Bumblebee taken to another level. Dual Slalom is pretty much gone, replaced by 4-Cross or similar events. It calls for a tougher bike that can handle the higher speeds, bigger gaps and drops, etc. etc. This bike has beefy, heat treated steel main tubes and uses the 83 mm bottom bracket shell/150 mm rear axle spacing of the Shimano Saint component group. the bike has horizontal taking advantage of the Saint's bolt-up hub and derailleur to allow trimming the rear end from 16 inches (16.5 inches with the 3" tire) to 17 1/2 inches.
This bike is shown with the Marzocchi 4-X World Cup fork, but will work with a variety of single and dual crown forks. There is a shortage of single crown forks that will provide clearance for the 3" tire, however.
