    Can find any specs but it looks like another 80 mm rim, 4" tire bike.

    I don't keep up on actual widths, but it has 4.7" Bulldozers on it, and full squish.

    Looks more like 120mm and 4.7" to me.
    Surprising from Foes, neat, but surprising.

    Hope that's not a curnut shock, but hopefully it's been long enough for them to see the error of their ways. The older bikes (like I had) were very poorly designed. Very stiff, but very poor suspension and execution. Back in the day the hype surrounding them was extreme (hey, I bought into it after all), but in real life it didn't live up. Luckily they have come a long way and for the most part seem to be putting out normal suspension bikes with linkages and normal shocks (or at least the ability to fit a normal shock).

    Edit: The shock linkage arrangement does seem to address some of the main problems from before (and thank god it's not a curnut). The shock bolt is very short, like most modern bikes, instead of the 6" long deal that went through the entire scissor linkage on my foes, and the pivot at the top of the rear triangle angles in and doesn't appear to be any longer than necessary. This is a big deal and shows me they are putting out serious bikes that are stiff AND well designed. The monthly bending of shock bolts and having to buy new scissor linkage assemblies left a bad taste in my mouth several years ago, but this seems decent. Yay foes for putting out a nice fatty FS.

    That's the bulldozer too!
