    Never mind LTS. I'm stoked to see a trail bike with 29" wheels again. I really didn't mind the I-Drive stuff or whatever that linkage was. Seems to work well on my wife's bike.

    The new Sensor looks incredible on paper. I'm going to have to see one in person

    Guys I just started another thread discussing the sensor as a reverse mullet bike. Could be incredible!!! Either way this thing is a serious contender. On paper itís basically a transition smuggler with room for plus tires and a huge weight savings. Not to mention the bikeís value.

    Wait! I've been slowly upgrading my Helion, now GT is ditching the AOS suspension? It soaks up bumps so well and it LOOKS so cool.

    Curious what makes this suspension design so much better? It looks like every other bike I see on the trails now.

    WOW, that's a heavy frame for a carbon trail bike - figure 7.5 lbs at least with the shock!!! Can anyone confirm this?
    "There's two shuttles, one to the top and one to the hospital" I LOVE this place!!!

    I donít know how fanatik got the weight, so no comment on the accuracy. But they claimed 3000g with the dpx2. So more like 2500g without a shock, which isnít bad for a large. Apparently they didnít want to make a flexy bike because several of the initial review claim itís an extremely stiff chassis. Which deserves applause imo.

    It reads 3000g WITHOUT shock.
    I wouldn't put a lot of trust in that value. Seems like an estimated guess - could weight a lot more.

    I'm still excited

    Fie! boo! hiss!

    I guess I'm one of few who likes the AOS. I think it rides great.

    Yeah, I'd say that weight is not accurate. How many frames weigh exactly 2,3,or 4 kg? none. Also I see that it says that's the weight without the shock. 7ish Lbs for a carbon frame is stupid heavy. 5 is probably average these days for a long travel frame.

    I still want one lol

    I hear Giant is releasing a bike in August with very similar number to the sensor. Iím going to wait to compare the two before I buy.
