Looks like a beefier front end. No more tin can????

I thought the bigger they made the tubes the thinner they made them, treks made of coke cans for 2011.

Wow there are some slick looking big bikes for next year!

And definitely a few heavy bikes as well. The Enduro Evo is surprisingly heavy. (I'm just comparing a top of the line spec. bike to my slayer that is sitting around 32lbs with DX pedals).

seems weird that the s-works enduro is over 6 lbs lighter and the reg. enduro is 3 lbs lighter….that Evo stuff must be heavy.

I just have to comment on craw's sig. That cannot be topped. It's time to shutdown the internet for everything else just pales in comparison.

Wrong. Always.

Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.

Coil shock, 170mm coil fork, DH tyres rims etc.

It's basically the SXT now that the SXT has replaced the Demo 7.

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

I've never seen so many shocks fail during a single season as the pull shocks on the scotts we sell.

All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.

Do we think Fox might have better luck?

Bike Mag dropping pics of the new Shore.

Wow I hope Norco continues down this path. Burly and sleek. Finally. I never understood the excessive swoopy and the return to interrupted seat tubes. Dave Turner must be thinking "Um, yeah, I know. I've already been there, done that, since 1994."

The seatstays and rockers make nearly a straight line with each other. Why wouldn't the suspension extend under hard rear braking? (same goes for the Treks)

Edit: What is the point of the Evo designation for the new Specializeds?

Slacker, firmer shock tune, small increase in travel, chain guide, 740mm bars, adjust post etc.

What about the Stumpjumper EVO hardtails? They're set apart by the single chainring…
