    East Peak vs. Mount Vision 2008 Quad Link 2

    I am hoping for a bit of information that I have not been able to locate through my research and various literature sources.

    1. Are the East Peak and Mount Vision bikes built on the same framesets for their respective years? I believe the East Peak (and Rift Zone) was only offered in 2007/2008, and the Quad Link 2.0 120mm range got relabelled to Mount Vision in several different trims from 2009 onwards, it would make sense they were all the same framesets?

    2. Have there been any major changes or refinements to the East Peak/Mount Vision framesets over the years (2007-2010)? Visually they look the same, but of course you can never judge a book by its cover.

    Can give some information on question two, and you'll find the answers to question one in the links I included:

    - The earlier Quad Link 2 Mount Visions (2007/8?) had a funny looking the headtube where it met the top tube (I am not sure if this was in all markets, but I have seen it on a MV that was sold in the UK). This was corrected in the 2009 and later frames. 2010/11 frames had a slimmed down swing arm and linkages that did not protrude sideways as much as the earlier models (I am a big fan of how solid-looking the 2009 swingarm is). For 2011 they bumped the travel up to 140mm, changed the Mount Vision name to XM, gave it a tapered headtube and the changed the long-running curvy frame to a design with straighter tubes.
