    Good job! Very nice!

    Those new Hollowpoint MkIII's are beauties!

    Funny how similar the Azure frames look like the original 2002 Hollowpoints (with the curved top tube)

    Looks like the Iron Horse guys have been hard at work (as usual), good work guys!

    sh0rty :P

    Mmmmmm.... tasty! That Mk III looks like a bone I want to chew on. Potential new "Speedhub rack"? Hey, am I seeing a 2" stroke shock on the back?

    You guys done good with the curved tubing on the 7Point, as well -- nice touch!

    Yep, the MK III looks like a winner.. except for the color, tohugh it probably looks better in person. I'm wondering how the expert and comp will be priced...

    Todd: Is the MK III built to handle something like 3 or 4 foot drops? Or would that be more suited to the 7 point?

    MK 3 Me!

    I was seriously thinking about getting a 04 HP Sport for my wife. Screw that! I'll give her my tricked out 03 HP Expert next year and get an MK 3! Man, those things look completely bad ass!

    i did not know that you could run dual control levers with hayes breaks...

    looks like a very complete lineup for IH this year. Good stuff.

    You talking about the spec for the Azure Comp?

    That's strange: If you look at the large photo, it looks like they've got Shimano flippy cable brake levers mated to hydraulic calipers.

    Practically everything else is SRAM drivetrains though -- pretty cool!!! I'm not a Shimano hater, but I'm pleased to see SRAM finally getting their piece of the action.

    Does this mean SGS is discontinued and replaced by Sunday and 7Point?

    Close... Azure Comp comes with LX "flippy" levers with Shimano cable-disc brakes. It's using full-length cable housing, which is why it looks like hydros. HFX-9 is a typo.

    Expect to see a lot more SRAM from everybody next year...

    SGS has been replaced by 7POINT and Sunday (and one more model, but that's under wraps for now, probably will release info shortly before Interbike). While the FSR 4-bar was really really good, the new DW-Link designed stuff blows it out of the water.

    This is the picture I was referring to (copyright Pinkbike 2004, all rights reserved, used without permission of the website, yada yada), and I know it's a bad angle to judge a brake caliper by, but from what little I can see, that's a clean looking setup.
