    I actually think the way they mount the shock to the BB is pretty cool, I also like the seat post clamp. Just sayin.

    So I actually got to fondle one of these a bit (it was a pinarello mtb, not the squish one), I think it was the dogma xc 9.9
    I'll say they are actually quite bootiful in the way that top of the line road bikes are, and this is probably the dirt roadie's wet dream come true. The seatpost clamp was the first thing that struck me. I didn't like the idea of the fork bumpers on the downtube, seems like they could just design around that like everyone else. Overall execution and design were top of the line - crank brothers are known for aesthetically appealing design too...



    Given how much is contingent upon the suspension, they didn't talk about the engineering/design of that very much.

    It's so true about the 5 flex points. No other bike has this. I'm convinced this is the most amazing mountain bike ever!

    If I wanted the feeling of riding a road bike, I'd ride a road bike. I ride mountain bikes for the unbeatable feeling of riding a mountain bike.

    This will undoubtedly be the most expensive brake jacking single pivot bike ever made...

    A very well polished bike for sure, but built for roadies who want to ride some non-technical trails.

    Shock bolts in single shear? Wouldn't inspire confidence for me, regardless of how much FEA they did.

    this will match great with my ferrari pickup truck, salvator ferragamo helmet, chanel hydration pack and mario batali energy bars!

    granted, i have no desire to ride this thing, but the angular pivot linkage is pretty fly looking.

    the stops for the forks are pretty cool though. good idea, you can remove them or leave them on. i see some benefit to that and the seatpost clamp is cool too. the rest, meh.
