    Jared Graves sea otter prototype slalom bike.....

    Saw a pic of Jared's proto slalom bike on vitalmtb. Looks like a mini 303rdh complete with rail. I'm too stupid to attach the link to the pic but it's on vitalmtb. Woulda thought/hoped a "switch" suspension model would have been produced....who knows, maybe it is in the works... Just got my 4x built and really like it but could do with an updated geometry and design......

    Air shock.....very interesting. I'm not a fan of silver or raw frame, but looks pretty sweet.

    Doesn't look like "new" technology... More like something they dusted off from the parts bin

    Edit: although looking at the Sunday DH results... Was good enough for 1st place for Jared

    The other pictures of the frame lead to believe it may have been assembled in Colorado perhaps, added a few stickers, then sent it out to be put through the paces.

    That is the bike that Dave Z from yeti built for himself for a 4x race last year. If it rides like a 4 inch rdh, it would be the sickest slalom frame ever.

    I have rode that style frame before.

    Pretty sure it wasn't that exact frame, but it could have been.

    Bike is an 08 frame judging from this:
