    Fantastic machining, but I am interested in the Skunk Works. Any connection to Lockhead Martint and WW2?

    No connection to anything. The word simply means the freedom to design and build whatever we want, unhampered by set parameters or bureaucracy....as long as its legal.

    .....Yes and helping to stand upright a dropped, fully laden, off-road bike...!! When I put mine down on a crap piece of track it is a heavy and ungainly bitch to get back upright alone, normally as it happens in the worst spot !!

    Progress capture has ball detent built in just below the cam pivot pin. That way you can lock it back with a simple push until you're ready to use it, unlike the Aztec or Mammut system where you have to hold the progress capture to expand the system. Very solid lockup and easy to release. Just needs the tortion spring installed (have one coming this week). Not real happy with the way it looks since it's sort of clunky looking but we will slim it down a lot once we go to a heat treated cam instead of this brass prototype.
