    Performer 26″! Sure takes me back. I’m going to have to knock the dust off the old 101 Freestyle Tricks video. Hopefully Eddie Fiola had design input.

  • adam says:

    yeah that performer 26 is awesome looking – i might have to pick one up as a urban bike.

  • Disco says:

    Don’t forget Tux wearing Brian Scura or Dizz Hicks, Looks like an American or Mid BB too so the bearings wont wear out like cross threaded euro’s do.

    I want one!! and since it’s high ten tubing MSRP ought to be under $500….

  • GAry says:

  • Rick says:

  • jamest says:

    A aluminium XC zaskar 100 will then be a top seller than carbon version!
