    That is funky. The frame might be lighter, but they added 6 more bearings, and a bottle cage-YEEES!

    I wonder how it rides and how heavy it feels....

    The shock linckage looks much more progressive at first glance....hmmmm

    well my prophet will be 160mm by the end of the year. Will post then and give impressions.

    It is REALLY ugly. They've GOT to be kidding, thinking someone would buy that thing.

    As in the other post on this forum, this is a prototype! the final version will look different. I still remember the first drawings, pictures of the Darwin (the propotype for the rush). If you compare these with the actual Rush a big difference. the first Darwin pictures were also very ugly.

    I am looking forward to the final version, both this one and the 130 trail bike, one of those will probably replace my Jekyll

    LoL. What they needed was a lever that would give them 6" of travel out of a 4" shock. That means more pivot points.

    I've seen bikes that get 9" of travel from a 3" shock... of course that shock could hold up to 300PSI
