    ... and if we just ... Scott with Jamis Dakar frame?

    There is nothing new about this frame geometry.

    holy cow that Scott only weighs 22 lbs! Yeah it's funny how bike companies just recycle the same suspension designs year after year. I guess they do it so they can say they have something 'all new' and it keeps people buying the latest and greatest.

    There are very few new suspension designs these days.

    FWIW, the Scott Spark isn't about a new suspension design. It's more about being as light as possible, I think it's just easier to use a standard proven design to do it. My brother has a Spark, and most people don't even give it a second glance on the trail since it just looks like a black bike. But riding it is amazing.
