I do really think the XC design looks great, I'm just not interested for my riding.
Got a chance to see, feel, and almost ride (was in birkenstocks, so I passed on this) a Husky 510TE over at the neighbor's house. What a machine!!! Also, it was VERY light and had a sound you could hear throughout the neighborhood when the neighbor rode it. Too tall for my inseam challenged legs, but reminded me of the OSSA/Huskys I used to ride as a kid. Downside, it did not have mirrors and other stuff to make it completely street legal (who cares, right?)
