    Looks great. I hope they announce soon if and when there will be a carbon version of SB75. Could affect some decisions!

    I wonder if the 27.5 rear tri from the 575 will fit onto my 26er 575?

    oh yeah, check out the new color from Chris King!!!

    interesting move - might have to agree upon further thought - and seemingly 2 bikes in the same 'category' - you'd think there would be more differentiation - altho single piv vs SB sus, 10 mm... seems to be to close in intended rider/purpose

    Not all that different than Santa Cruz with the Heckler 27.5 and Bronson. It's more about price point.

    It is indeed lame. But the numbering makes sense. 7 for 27.5. The 5 is for 5" travel (127mm which is close enough to 130).

    I would have liked to see a 6" + 27.5 bike from them... But alas...

    Ironically the 27.5 575 has more travel (140mm) than the SB75.

    I'm getting a little tired of the initial AL release with Carbon being delayed a year. Everyone knows it's coming, and I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people just wait for the Carbon model.

    I like that they made two different models in this wheel size. It gives them a couple price points.

    I'm a little ticked that they are now making the AL with a Carbon rear. I just replaced my rear triangle 6 weeks ago and I really don't want to replace it again. It will be nice to have that if I need to do it again.

    So when do we think the website is going to be updated with the new models? Really digging the 575. A real classic made even better.
