i must be lucky then. from the sound of all you guys there are only a few people that had no leaky psylo's, well at least after the initial bedding in. mine leaked a bit at the start but stopped after about a weeks riding.
ugly? you could call it a piece of artwork (but that depends on the eye of the beholder of course) i reckon it looks fully sic and if i have the money next year (not likely but meh) i'll buy one. Specialized make good bikes so you could expect all that complicated stuff not to break too easily.
has anyone noticed that you seem to get addicted to that rush you get when you pull off something you've never done before? the more you do it the less it seems to come so you go bigger to try to get that 'rush' again. must be the best natural drug in the world. especially when combined with an mtb.
my dream bike (DHer)
-that new specialized Big Hit frame
-Aireal Industries hubs, headset and chainguide (cause they're Aussie and they rock)
-mavic 321's and DT double butted spokes
-pro taper bars with an azonic shorty stem
-XT 8in disc brakes
-raceface cranks, shimano...
