i'll be seeing him and the gang saturday, more racing.
Marcus likes to use a later model swing arm. It's bigger. USCRA doesn't allow swing arm bracing. A later swing arm provides more robustness without using a brace.

I bought most of my bike from Marcus. He has many suggestions. Some of them good ones. He does prefer the RaceLine kit. He will be at Okemo this weekend, as will I.
