OK, here it is. I bought this from a very reputable dealer on the west coast of the US, some of you may know who they are. This is the GG 280 economy. Sorry, but I havn't quite figured out how to post these images, anyway it was very exiting bringing a bike home in a crate. It was mostly assembled, handlebars and controls are about the only thing I needed to install. Ye olde teflon tape trick. A little type F. You never know! *** is this? The 2000 VS the new 2008. I ran 3 tanks of gas through this new bike on the weekend, and it is butter smooth. I do not think the tube tire is going to be an issue. I started at 4psi, and found it broke loose in the dirt, so I dropped it to 3.5psi, same as i run in the tubeless, so far not an issue. The only casualty was the the headlamp, it burned out in the first hour, and it is an LED. I very stoked about this bike, it is a huge improvement, all though the other machine is very capable, this pro motor is the bomb.
