Team Jackrabbit Bike?

We are looking into getting Team Jackrabbit bikes for 2010 and Big Dave made his plug below for the carbon air Niner with a rigid Niner fork--certainly a beautiful bike and an excellent choice.

I love the idea of going fully carbon and no offense, big man, I may be able to get away with it, but you, on the other hand, are a different story. The one thing we have learned in the last year and a half, if nothing else, is that you are incredibly hard on your bike--I'm thinking that you are going to destroy a carbon frame faster than my gorgeous wife can polish off a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

I just found this doodle from this past summer-notice the crown hangin' off the Jackrabbit Racing--I'm thinking that it's an omen for a Team Jackrabbit Independent Fabrication.  Here's why:

1. It's customized for you--trust me here, that makes it worth it alone.

2. Although it's going to be a bit more money (probably not as much as you think) you will have a much harder time destroying a Ti frame, thus only paying for 1 frame.

3. It will be the last frame you will ever need.

4. As I'm sure you will agree, a team bike must look fast in order to be fast--we need all the help we can get in fast department, No amigo? thus #5

5. Custom paint--need I say more?

6. When it's time to get the cross bike the "team version" will be waiting for you.

7. The SS Team issue already exists.

The IF folks are creative--just one of their many gems--look at this thing!

My understanding is the above bike was inspired by this amazing photo--Wow!

Just one of the many IF Deluxe 29er's on the Ifrider website--check them out--are you feelin' it?

As next season is my year to get a cross bike--here she is! Can't wait to see her in team paint.
