    2019 FourStroke ?

    Looks like a new model will come out. I wonder what they will change with the Agonist fairly close in the line-up.

    Rear Boost.
    Internal cabling.

    ? Geo ?

    I haven't seen anything yet, but I would expect something similar to the Agonist but 100mm of travel front and rear...

    Looks pretty solid, slack HTA with short offset fork, integrated dropper is neat, weight is midpack, 1 bottle cage. Love the skinwall Barzos though

    Anyone got any idea about pricing on these beasts? I'm not too convinced by the builds, but the frameset could be an interesting purchase..

    Thanks... I'm curious as to why these didn't make more of a "splash" - it seems a touch more aggressive than even the Intense Spider which is where the world seems to be headed...

    But it is in the line up for the Bible Bike Test (but of course they don't include much to compare it with, aside from the SB100...no Sniper, no Oiz)...

    Anyone seen or ridden one yet? I don't think they are supposed to be in stock in the States until February.

    A couple of test rides. Size XL 12,1kg with XTR pedals and tubes. My experience: Very long front-center with 70mm stem. Feels like a very progressive rear suspension tune. A bit harsh rear suspension probably due to below freezing temperature and being brand new. Pedals great with good flow in open mode. So good it may not need the middle setting. Crank thankfully not as low as Spark RC. Downhill nothing comes close. Climbing it is close to but not surpassing the Scalpel. Could just be the weight.

    Thanks MrRidealong. Thinking about getting off a Scalpel and getting on an FS01 for next season.
    Anyone know what the weight of the TWO and ONE come in at?
    Is the remote a 3 position? I thought all the new Fox forks and shocks were only 2 position remote.
