    a couple of things to consider about this vpfree;
    1. If this is the new free, numerous riders will be disappointed b/c it looks like the old vpfree and not the new and exciting one we are all expecting
    2. From all the hush, hush b.s. from Santa Cruz about the new free, you can bet it will be revealed in a BIG way, not from just some random photo.
    3. Why would anyone who is proud of the "made in the U.S.A." introduce the new free in Europe of all places and not the U.S.A?

    I don't know what to expect anymore then the rest of the riding community out there but I can guarantee this is not the new vpfree!

    can someone point out 1 difference from the old one - except it is in the new colour ways?

    are they bringing back the old one till the new one is ready?

    No, 'cos this IS the old one. This is not the new one. European SC dealers still have some VPFree stock to sell, so its not surprising that there was one on display at Eurobike as teh SC stand was run by a couple of Europeans (who want to shift stock).

    Someone who saw it wrote elsewhere: "no photos sorry, looked like a shorter travel V10"

    Hopefully it does not have the same leverage ratio as the V10. i had to get my v10 push'd.

    shorter travel v-10. one pound heavier than current vp free. named the D-8 or Driver 8.

    Me: very disappointed. I was hoping for something similar to the old vp, upgraded a la Nomad/BLT2, nice and light, 8" freeride bike for the shore and whistler.

    The green VP Free above is just like mine too, except it has a 1 1/8" ht.....like Perp's.
