Do we think Fox might have better luck?

Hopefully but given foxs initial issues with rp23 and dhxair I wouldn't hold my breath.

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.

i think one issue with the Scott was the super high air pressures they needed for their shock to work. Hopefully the Cdale and Fox set-up will be able to use lower pressures.

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."

Yeah, that new Shore frame is great looking! I have always loathed the interrupted seat tube on my '06 version.

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

No idea. What's a hardtail ;)

A sneaky bit of googling and URL manipulation work (i.e. quite bored these days!)…Looks like Giant's AUS branch have prepared some new 2011 specification details on their website. Colour-coding or what… the 2011 look amazing!! I wonder what the GBP prices will be…
