Throughout our years of dealing with it, we have gained a deep understanding of how subtle subtleties affect the way the bike flights and also feels. While FSR modern technology is not special, that is not by any methods to state that FSR style bikes are created equivalent. Understanding the best ways to make the best use of the design is as vital as the style itself.
