    Cool-blue Rhythm 2014 Jedi predictions

    Since we're almost half way through this year, guess it's time to have the juices flowing about sine 2014 Jedi talk.

    My first prediction is carbon, wink wink........

    Only real thing I can truly see them making changes. Geo, tire spacing, sizing is all spot on Imho.

    So what's your take?

    The current bike is perfect. The only thing they could really do is add more orange.

    DooDooBoi - You are way off with your predictions!!! With all the hilarious banter going on this past week, I figured I'd hop in and shed some light on the 2014 Jedi for you all. We have been running this proto all spring and plan on making a few more changes for production. We are going to take this and add 2 more inches of travel, (increasing it to 14" to match to new DVO Super Oilivine fork that's coming out next year). We are also contemplating running a 20" rear to make it even more Nimble... Projected frame weight should be around 22lbs and we will dare anyone to break one!

    Haha, thanks vin. Glad someone really took this for fun like I intend.

    so 20" rear would be perfect with a 650b front since there is no way to have a rearward axle path for the front.

    6" travel 36er!

    But I would like to see a 650b ass-end for the MK2 Jedis...MK2.5?
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.
