    It's On

    From the Ventana forum: a 4" xc frame is in the works. Great news and I hope the start of more to come from the smaller builders. Now come on fox, get the jump on 2014.

    Not familiar with Corratec, nice looking bike though. Don't know if I can go back to a single pivot design after riding multi-link bikes but we need more choices in this category.

    The Corratec isn't a single pivot, if that's what you meant.

    I took a quick look, my mistake.

    No worries. Anytime you see only one pivot from the drivetrain-side view and it's placed very high (with no dropout pivot), it's almost always a multilink in the vein of a Niner, dw-link, Giant Maestro, etc. with the other link hidden by the chainrings.

    Bring it! I'm just waiting for the next generation of short-travel 650b bikes.

    You and me too, hope the xc models take off before the 2014 predictions. Some of my 29r friends think that wheel size has locked down the xc market, I think there will be room for the 27.5 - it's a great blend of characteristics.
