    Some people will poo poo it, but Rocky doesn't do designs to fit a mold, except for the molds they've made... I think it's sick for one.

    The Flatland seems like a dedicated DH machine, while the RMX is more versatile IMO.

    Actually, it's called the "Flatline".

    Just a correction.....the new Rocky bike is called the Flatline. Trust me on that.

    As for the versatility, I'd say the Flatline is gonna make the RMX obsolete in the lineup eventually.

    i second that. the yellow one looks pretty weird in my opinion. but either way, its a pretty sick bike, as well as the m6.

    whoa, the flatline will replace the venerable RMX? whoa again. I like the unpainted aluminum better.

    Definately makes sense, not sure why anywone would name a DH bike "Flat Land". doesn't quite seem fitting

    It looks ten times better in person. Although not heavy by any means, I found it a bit heavier than I thought it would be. Scott says it's quite responsive on the trail.

    The new rocky looks ugly and the frame design is going to hold alot of mud right around the shock, the worst area, its harder to remove and wears out the shock seals faster. The ibis looks great though.

    Not to mention all the bearings... I went to Whistler this summer, got caught in the rain for 2 days, and the bearings on the seatstays of my Switch rusted solid. Now there's at least 4 more bearings to destroy in one spot!!!

    What are these? I'm talking about the dark green aluminum ones in the front. They look great.






    EDIT: those appear to be the new Mallets. Apparantly CB is also coming out with 10 (10?!?!) headsets, and two external bearing cranksets, in addition to taking over production of the Speedball post from Maverick.

    The RM looks a little like my old frame after casing a gap really bad. Im sure it rides great though and the rear triangle looks much more substantial than the old thrustlink design. Im having trouble understanding how the linkage on top works. Anyone have a closeup?

    It's the same linkage design as the new slayers - LC2R is they're acronym for it.
