From the 2004 S&M catalog: The new Challenger frame has become a pretty hot number with avante garde hot dogs across the U.S. of A. It’s constructed of aircraft-grade 4130 chromoly and TIG welded for optimum strength and performance. The Challenger’s rear end features a monostay for stiffness, chromoly dropouts for strength, and press-fit head tube reinforcement rings to resist fore/aft fork movement. This lightweight contender comes in Pro and Pro XL sizes to fit even the most finicky Moto monsters.

Every Challenger comes with a top tube-mounted gear chart that flat reeks of trickness. Challenger forks are designed light, tight and out of sight to slip silently past flying cones and ruptured hay bales during intense berm warfare sessions. Watch the lights carefully, my son, lest ye be bitten by the bear.log in again
