What's up fellow riders !! I just picked up an aluminum 2017 Transition Patrol frame and I was curious what the differences are when compared to the 2016?

From what I have read on this forum, the 2016 won the Enduro Bike of the Year, but it seems they made a few changes in the 2017 version. I read that the rocker linkage changed to accommodate a metric shock.

Can anyone confirm if the suspension leverage curve was changed? Why would they change a bike that was so widely liked?
