    Hydroformed frames

    Is the cost of hydroformed frames significantly higher? I've noticed that most other brands are using hydroformed frames but Motos haven't picked up on it yet...

    I'm finding that the look of the Motos are starting to look dated...

    Yes, I'm shallow.

    Yes, the frame look is dated but I can speak from experience they are strong and durable. For a company that doesn't make a lot of profit on their bikes, that's probably a good thing. What I'd rather see than hydroformed tubing is a new full suspension design in two ways:

    1. More travel. Currently the longest travel offered is 130mm IIRC, and most are 120mm.
    2. Use-specific designs: Add a downhill frame, an AM frame, and an XC frame.
    3. Different pivot designs. High single pivot for DH, keep the 4-bar/Horst-link rocker for AM, Horst-link strut for XC.
