Every engineer in the last 4000+ years has copied the triangle and the pyramid. The fucking ancient greeks and Egyptians were all over it. Go sue King fucking Tut.....

It's a Cinderella story...

Hmmm. Are you talking about who copied a pyramid frame?

The blade was cool when it came out....but it was still a tub style sled with the bars/rider waayyy behind the engine and the front suspension hinged from the outer edge of the frame instead  of the center.  But boy does that drive shaft mounted brake look familiar....although the XP has the rider's foot right next to it instead of a foot or more behind it.  They did get rid of those stupid trailing arms though. :good:

When riding your left toe might be 1/2" away from the brake disc. Unless you like to ride with your feet behind your body. The big deal was to create a rigid chassis. That allowed the major components to stay aligned.
