    I was looking at that too, I wonder if I can just slap on a 4 in stroke shock onto my sanction and a short travel fork and have the same bike.

    Nope. Sorry to burst your bubble sickspeed. Look at the seat tube. It is way shorter than the Forces and Sanctions. It may still have the same headangle as a Sanction but I bet that shorter seat tube makes it even slacker. That thing is sweet lookin'. I'd love to have it for urban assault rides.

    anyone know where to get those pivot mounted cable guides?

    I contacted GT, and apparently, they don't make or stock them.

    They're only brand new dude!

    Given they are on that prototype i wouldn't expect GT or any dealers to have any in stock
    for a while. When the bike comes out next year (if we're lucky we might see them in shops Oct/Nov this year) then they might be on pre order.

    I'll be gettin some for my Force as well!!!!

    You could probably make your own from stuff from a hardware store.

    Yeah, but they wouldn't look as sweet.

    Could it be that you're not a team sponsored rider? not privy to the latest? Of coarse yours didn't come with these pivot guides.....You guys always amaze me when you say, "mine didn't come like that". You do realize that bike specs are finalized months before the bikes hit the stores and in the mean time the product managers are receiving feedback from their team sponsored riders for product improvements and enhancements for the next year. Just because you just bought a 2010 doesn't mean the world stops. Constant change and updates is what keeps the industry moving and selling more bikes.

    those guides were shown over a year ago. i would expect them to be a production item by now - unless they don't work as good as they look.

    not surprised we haven't seen this as a production bike. it seems many of the 4x / slopestyle bikes used in competition are customs made for the sponsored riders and never intended for sale.
