    2012 - 2013 Legends?

    Hey guys, any new, rumours or facts for upcoming legends? Im on my 2011 frame, still going strong and wanted to renew... Is waiting for a 2013 model worth it? Are they gonna come with the Ti axle option instead of the maxle? Is geometry gonna be any different? I think a lot of us would love to know! Cheers!

    The 2013 Legend will come with a banshee rear axle... we have yet to confirm if this will be a Banshee Ti axle, or a new lightweight 7075 T6 axle, just waiting to get info from the machining suppliers.

    The geometry and overall frame design will stay very much the same, but there will be a few tweaks here and there on the frame to further improve performance and strength, and we have a refined shock tune to work with the frame also.

    Geo is gonna be the same? Great! I feel so at home with my Large. Okay, I'll be waiting for the 2013 models, thanks!

    I wish you would've left some kind of frame adjustability in the final product. I really like that feature. I know there is anglesets. But frame adjustments is easier then messing with cups. That's really the only drawback for the legend. I

    When we did the MkI legend testing, out of 76 riders we had test the frame, only 2 said they made use of the travel adjustment. Adding the adjustibility would increase cost to all customers, so based on the feedback I ditched it and focused on dailing one setting to be optimal.

    I remember you saying that when you were doing the testing for the frame. I just thought maybe something's would've changed, guess not. The legend is still on my list for next frame. Numbers wise a large scythe looks like a medium legend. I really like my scythe that i have been riding since 08. All the linkages and pivot points is still flawless, like new.
