uhm, most hubs are convertible…

see a list @ http://www.syntace.com/index.cfm?pid=1[HTML_REMOVED]pk=1314

I know just people were all oh noes and lolz syntace when it was first announced a while back.

Anyone know what happens with 10spd and 142mm spacing? Was one the result of the other?

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

Completely unrelated AFAIK. 142mm spacing just uses a 135mm hub with a little more (3.5mm per side) shoulder on the hub cones so it can sit in the dropouts instead of passing through - like a 135x10/12 thru-bolt will do.

Looks a little too XC.

RMB branded hubs on a $4600 bike :lol:

As long as they are not bricks, and are serviceable, I'd say that hubs are pretty unimportant. Give me a decent fork, brakes, baaaa, etc over hubs any day.

wow you are a ass

Guess I'm spoiled by my hadleys.

To bad they couldn't splurge for the RC2.

Hahaha

Just had a thought. Rocky also has their straight up geo. The steep seat tube means a more forward position on the bike which translates to a front end that will wander less.

Also a seat that is ALWAYS underneath you if you use an adjustable(joplin etc.) seatpost.

Ride a Knolly with such a post and the seat is nowhere near where you left it when you stood up.

NO, NONE, NOT ANY, criticism of the Knolly design(brilliant) just a discussion example.

I'll be honest, this is the first rocky in a long while that has really twigged my "I like it" reaction. Good to see some new energy and bikes from those guys.

YUP
AGREED!

That, and OBBikes on the westshore helps too!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is the Trance a "Maestro" or not?
The chainstay pivot would indicate "NOT"

The Riegn is a similar concept as well in that it accomplishes
the goals of a Horst system by freeing up the braking via it's
rear axle concentric pivot thingy.

Your only getting half the picture. Look on the other side, you'll see another link between the frame and the chain stay.

And I think you're confusing Trek.s ABP for the Maestro….

yeah, that thing you think is a pivot on the chainstay, it's not

That would be a deal breaker for me, some great parts on the 70 but putting the Talas R on there instead of RLC Fit seems like a big miss on the top end model. Interesting that the Talas is a 2-step this year instead of 3-step, guess they had too many problems. I'd take the 300g weight penalty on a Lyric coil U-turn, anyone know if the frame-only option will be the ano or paint?
