don't be something you're not
I've loved the Deluxe frames since I first saw them. I built up this 21.25 V-brake edition last week and it is amazing. It's long and lean, pulls up easy and handles so well. I've never felt so instantly comfortable on a bike. I was a little sketched on the V brakes but at the jumps, they work better than "U-brakes" anyway. They kinda suck for manuals, but man do they stop. This feels like a race bike, but is much more nimble and easy riding. I frickin' love it. I don't feel like I've been kidding myself by riding more "modern" bikes, but this thing is all me.
I also received the Deluxe video yesterday. It was so nice to sit down on the couch and watch an actual DVD on the TV. Trails are what it is...
