    I thought DT had said only slight changes like the addition of the current RFX headtube to allow for the use of current 160mm forks.
    Nothing to see here.

    You must be kidding right?!!! Everyone knows that all 2009 Turners are going to the DW-Link as improved by Ellsworth, to be known as the 125% efficient DW-ICT Link. As a result of Ellsworth's improvements, all Turners will have a $500 price increase as they will have to pay license fees to David Weagle and Tony Ellsworth.











    BTW, if anyone can't figure it out, the above was satire.

    Does that mean the head tube lenghts are increasing throughout the Spot range,if so no bad thing, as it will increase the sizing caperbilities for those around the 5'10 - 5'11" tall folk.

    The acronyms are wrong: They drop the W and the T and make the new name the "DIC LINK".

    PS- Tony copyrighted it before I hit "post".

    In light of the Hammerschmidt, is there a chance the 2009 SPOT would have an ISCG Option?

    Although this frame is considered Trail, installing a 36 blurs the line between Trail & All Mountain. And some build this frame up as a light All Mountain.

    Has anyone developed an ISCG that can be clamped in place similar to that of a seat post clamp?

    I will be curious to see which models/sizes the bent top tubes appear on. That's gonna be weird looking on a Turner.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    This has already been discussed. You can view the prototype HERE

    Nope. The D.I.C.K. is much more efficient and stiffer upright than the Klein.

    Correction: it is 111% more efficient upon testing of the prototype mentioned in my post above. 125% was from computer modeling calculation in one of anthony's dream.
