    Yea. I want to see a steel 29er from Specialized like what they did with their Allez and Langster road bikes. I like the new dropout. I do like that S-Works Version... to bad I don't have the money.

    I like the dropouts. Tapered head tube, not so much. Unless someone comes out with a rigid/tapered fork...

    R/D commonly purchases their competitors' products so they know exactly what they're competing against, whether they're stealing or perfecting their own design.
