    In that article:

    "...with plans for two different mid-travel forks targeted at the all-mountain/enduro world. The first of those to be released is the Diamond, pictured here in prototype form, that will offer either 140 or 160mm of internally adjustable travel. The right side up fork (the second model will be an inverted single crown) utilizes 35mm stanchion tubes and stout looking magnesium lowers that give it a brawny appearance, and all signs point to the Diamond being far from a spindly trail fork."

    The OTT feature sounds interesting, but I'm curious how much better it will be over the X-Fusion stuff and especially the new Pike. The Pike is pretty much the gold standard these days. I mean even Stevie Smith said he was ready to ride the Pike on his one-off race bike for PMB if Rock Shox couldn't provide 650b lowers for the Boxxers...

    what I'm trying to say is if the Diamond follows in the pricing pattern of the Emerald, it will have to have much better performance than the other forks in the market to justify that cost, and there are some pretty stiff competition out there right now...
