    The first two looks nice. The 07-version of that bike had Gustavs on the top tier model, but Codes are nice too.

    yeah these bikes are pretty expensive considering the low-end part spec. € 2.099,00 = $3020.98 usd

    Those link plates are pretty cool, looks like something Doug Bradbury would turn out (like the Tomac..) Kinda hard to tell from the pix but the lower mount for the link seems pretty minimal, might just be extra support though. The bolt is huge so I assume there's a solid pivot mount in there. Also looks like adjustable travel on the Caliber.

    I saw the XCers racing KTM's on coverage of a UCI round a little while back and went *gasp* "It can't be"
    But it was, and i want a Tribute. Bad.

    they've been doing KTM bikes for years. the shop I worked at in highschool was right next to a KTM dealer. they brought over a few of the bikes probally 5-6 years ago now.

    KTM has had pedally bikes for a while. Checked em out at Eurobike, some cool stuff.

    Don't want to pay Special Ed to use the FSR so you won't find them in the states unless grey market, or bought online.

    KTM???? Linkage??? WTF?

    They should just get a really solid light design like an old Foes Tube just like their motos and use a proprietary damper that just doesn't suck like the Curnutt. Make it stiff and mass produced/cheap and light and durable and easy to work on and get rid of all these f'ing Sundays and V10's. Then they can work in the gearbox thing in a few years when it gets refined enough.

    The rear ends are not very stiff and after a bit of riding you get 8 inches of vertical travel and 3 inches of lateral. Could be cool but the rear not stiff enough for my liking. They are specced pretty nice though. I think the uninterupted seat tube design makes it too flexy in the rear. The seat stays are long.
