    Okay, I own 2 pair of X-Metals. I recently purchased the Ferrari Badmans, but I also own a pair of Juliets. I know that the new frames are made of aluminum, but what were the Juliet frames made of?

    "X-Metal is reserved for those models made at our Nevada factory... like Romeo, Juliet, XX, Penny, etc.

    Jim"




    2 pair of X-Metals you say? I cannot concur. ;)




    :D

    The whole Idea of calling the Bad and Mad man new x metals is disturbing (for me)
    But hey thats what marketing does.
    Polish a Chinese turd and sell it as a Jewel

    Why's it gotta be a Chinese Turd? Would a Polished say....African Turd be more akin to a Jewel?

  9. Polished African turd would likely be a sapphire, a jewel indeed.

    Mythbusters once did a test of the saying "you can't polish a turd". Though at first it seemed impossible to disprove, they did eventually bust it.

    It was done by hand, using a Japanese art technique known as dorodango. Using a glossmeter, anything higher than 70 gloss units is considered "high gloss"; Jaime polished a lion turd to 183 gloss units...
