    07 or 08 Rush?

    Is there any real difference between an 08 and 07 Rush frames? I know the 08 has a bridge on the lower swingarm chainstay. Is this just a mud collector? It would seem that the upper chain stay portion would benefit more with the bridge. Is there a weight difference?

    Sl

    I just bought a 2008 5z. I rode the 2007 not sure which one it had a lefty and aluminum frame, mech discs. I chose not to buy it because it was expensive for the component level compared to the 5z. The guy at the bike shop told me the SL on the frame means it is 100g lighter than last years. I can't comment on stiffness just did not have that much time on both bikes sorry. Honestly they both feel very stiff in a good way coming off an FSR.
