That Cube AMS looks fast, but gawd is it Fugly!

It’s not ugly, it’s ‘purposeful’ 🙂

Van needs alloys to be in the same “league of purpose” as that bike.

How many lumens? You sure an extra 0 didn’t creep in there?
Ahem – fixed… 1850 is still very silly…

The Cube is not great looking in that ‘Teamline’ colour pictured but I bet it looks better if there’s a ‘Blackline’ option.

I ran one of the 1850lumen MR16 HID’s a few years back when trailtech first released them. Definitely not for a helmet mount as they’re quite weighty units, not that you’d need it to be that directional though.
They are ridiculously bright. Techy downhill sections at very nearly daytime speeds.
There are a few downsides though, everyone you ride with will want you at the front so you don’t cast shadows and anyone who does get in front of you and is wearing any scotchlite will blind you.

is the jetboil thingy really 1L big,
psling said on February 17, 2009
juan, where do you get 1L from? The jetbo’1L’ looks smaller to me 😉
Loving the rasta mitts though!

Ah, the NS Society, nice. Watch out for tyre clearance…

I like the ams colours myself but do not like the look of the rear mech line

Have had a NS for a while. Great sturdy steel rig. Love it, Also have had the Jet boil for a year. What a stunning piece of kit. Boiling water in 60 seconds.

are you guys on crack?!
how can you call that cube fugly!?

We have used our jetboil for a couple of years now in expedition races – fantoosh bit of kit. Light, works, easy to use, no faff. Has saved a few people from hypothermia a couple of times when we;d normally not carry a ‘cooker’

For a moment there I thought that Jetboil “mug” had the burner built into it. Now that would have been impressive.
But having checked the Jetboil website I realise that I was the mug to think that ;o)
