    I wish they would put a pic of the actual bike on their website. That cartoon drawing is so ridiculous.

    It looks awfully like an 04 - 07 Jamis Dakar series bike.

    it doesnt offer anything over the ace... it may be lighter or stiffer but the suspension linkage is going to offer the same performance to the wheel
    RAH!

    i didn't see there booth at the otter to check it out... i raced friday watched pro's sat and sun. didn't mingle at the booths but i should have.
    Even though Astro is great, if i were to say ditch my ace for a derro i wont get anything but a new frame. its got the same suspension just a better paint job!
    ill have my ace repainted and a new rear shock for 2012 season. mine's lighter then the serum is
    RAH!

    saw it at sea otter. frame is heavier than ace. weighs 6.1 lbs for 17" frame and sells for $700 with fox rp2 shox. rep says it's heavier because it has a beefier rear end. it's $1799 for complete bike as u see it. see the guy/rep there with the water bottle? he gave me that right after the pic. free stuff!

    HA!
    Whomever is repping Sette on their Facebook page - Needs to get a clue - When 'they' posted the Derro image up - Someone asked if it was still a single-pivot like the ACE..."Sette" said, "...it is not a single pivot. see above" (referring to a previous statement by them that it was 4-bar suspension)
    When I called 'them' out on it, saying, 'No, it IS a single-pivot (faux bar)' and that they should know better and not put out bad info (in a subsequent post) - my posts were deleted and I was unable or not allowed to post on that 'thread' -

    *EDIT*
    Marek's comments were deleted too

    I guess I'd know if 'they' post that tri-flow is the only lube to use

    I know, I saw that! - I was standin' up for ya

    It's really too bad when a company rep is putting out bad info and censors ones who try to correct it (and, being Sette owners too!)

    $1800 for the pictured bike is a great deal. Where else can you buy a new bike with SLX, XT, and Fox suspension for that kind of price?

    The guys I talked to a Sea Otter said there was going to be a less expensive version that was going to cost around $1500 and would still have a Fox fork and shock.

    They then loaded me up with socks, tire levers, a water bottle, a couple of tubes, and a multi tool! Can't beat that!

    Thanks. i think they should know it counts as both suspension types. not just one or the other..
    RAH!

    When I hear single pivot I think of the Santa Cruz Superlight, Heckler and the Orange 5. Those are true single pivots. This frame has pivot locations above and just in front of the rear axle making it a four bar just like the Ace except this has a different swing link. Those post by highdell were deleted for good reason and he "should know better and not put out bad info". I'm pretty sure Sette knows what they are talking about considering it's their frame albeit from frame retailers catalog.

    Well, yes and no - FOUR-bar (correct me if I'm wrong - and I don't think I am) is typically reserved for describing a 'Horst-type' linkage (pivot on CS), whereas FAUX-bar is reserved for SS pivot linkage designs.
    I understand when you get down to it, it's kinda semantical (<~~New Word!) because they both have 4 bars (or is it 3 or 5 ) - but that's just what they're called - for better or for worse.

    A FAUX-bar behaves just like a single-pivot - it just actuates the shock at a (usually) different ratio.

    I know you get all this, -just expounding
