    I'd love to see all the CK brown stuff on an old skid mark Karate Monkey, with a Brooks Honey Saddle and matching grips. Yummy!

    Not a big brown fan either myself, but obviously some people like it. Now purple, on the other hand ....

    There, you said it: This year.

    Interbike is all about next year!

    (White isn't a good color for mountainbike parts anyway, because it is quite hard to keep clean. See the big advantage of brown? It will cut your bike maintenance time in half! )

I find this remarkable as with more majors joining in 29ers are "officially" no niche anymore.

    But then again it is a pity, as I personally enjoy being part of a niche - it is nice to have a limited selection of frames and parts to choose from made by passionate people who are all first movers and believe in what they do has a real benefit. It gives me confidence to be in a good community.

    With the 29er market growing there are many free-rider / copycat companies like Moots and, for that matter, Rocky Mountain, that try to catch up and pretend that their very models are a tiny little bit different / better than others (which they really are not). I personally hope that 29er will not be carried away in the marketing frenzy of a mass market.

    Fortunately, I (together with my two Niners) live in Germany where 29ers are still as unknow as e.g. root beer (the latter may change with brown seems to become the new black).

    Keep the big wheels rolling an ride what you have!
    Don't fret, you can always swap out your 29'er for a 650b and stay fringe...just google Bombadil 650b and you'll get the picture. Then poof...you're back to limited rubber selection, and no other bikes like you on the trail.

    I also did not get the Turner or the Ventana as they were not available every time I stopped by. In fact, the turner guys looked a little bored at one point because every single bike was gone and they were just sitting there with an empty truck.
    Next time do what KRob and I did. We both had Eggbeaters and rode large bikes, so we could swap on the trail. I had a new 5-Spot and he had a Ventana on Monday morning. Then an El Guapo and Knolly. Or something like that.
    Then he got bored with me riding the Girl Scout trail and headed back for the DH course.

    Saves a bunch of time and those long shuttle lines.

    The forks on that awesome bike moves (works) in two different ways, in fact I'm pretty sure two completely different sets of stantions are house inside each fork leg.

    The upper part work like what BMW calls a "Telelever" front end with dramatic antidive features where the "Middle triple clamp" Floats (moves up and down) pivoting on the horizontal arms mounted in the middle of the frame.

    somehow like this implement on the R12GS.
    .

    Then the lower part of the fork works like a conventional upside down fork.

    I made this drawing many moons ago using similar principles.



    Personally i will love to see and learn far more about this bike..

    Also the rear end looks like some kind of "Lawwill parallel arm linkage" with the bottom pivot concentric to the Bottom bracket, very interesting for a first attempt.

    I keep hearing people say that brown sucks, why not white and all that, but what is the new up and coming color that people are matching with white? Brown! Get all your white parts then match it with some brown and you've got a nice looking kit. Bikes at every price point are becoming more and more common with a white/brown mix, I've seen a large influx of cheaper hybrids and commuters locally with brown grips and saddles.
