    Now if they could get some pictures of it with the right length shock. That 09 model doesn't have a 60 degree HA or a 12.0" BB height. I guess someone forgot to order 9x3 shocks before the show?

    That is a good point. Looks like it would be the case to me. One of my biggest issues with any bike, is chain slapping. Other than that, the bike looks pretty nice. I would like to ride one,.... when I am rich.

    They should've gone with an elevated chainstay design.
