Thought this was pretty interesting. You when fox hops on board, there is some merit to the design.

Also, all over teh webz right now due to Megavalanche:

will be interesting to see what weight that cannondale claymore and the enduro evo come in at, getting close to a do (pretty much) everything bike.

Pinkbike has a bit about tyler morland testing a blackbox equipped enduro with that fork

What is the advantage of a pull shock?

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

packaging and low COG for that design, but most importantly, MARKETING!

Scott's doing it too. They're replacing the Ransom with the Genius LT.

I think the Scott looks awesome. But I'd have to be convinced that the shock was reliable…

Yes, MARKETING MARKETING MARKETING!

Travel adjust built into the shock is sort of cool, but it could presumably be done with a normal shock, and of course you've been able to do no end of adjustments using frame bolts for years.

CNF hired some ex Scott dood, hence teh similarities.

Maybe that's a proto that wasn't designed around that 180mm Fox?
