One of the nicest looking fs bikes I've seen. Does anyone know what's up with Mountain Cycle?

I want one… I love my 9.5 and the hardtail that the battery is modeled after rides really nice as well. Mountain Cycle got bought out from Kinesis recently. I'm not positive who the new owner is but I know it's another taiwan based bike company who is willing to support the brand far more than the previous owner.

they might have a coil one, but the offerings will be very limited. i like the battery a lot, especially the first one. too bad i don't have the money. i might get a rumble though…

I really don't like the look of the swingarm.

can anyone say "small bullit"?

I see virtualy no likeness between the bullit and the MC. Besides the fact that they are both single pivot of course.

Swing arm is quite different, front triangle is tinyer than even any heckler ive ever seen, and by the BB and pivot area there lookes to be some pretty crazy casting

I hope that MC can live this time, the owners screwed over the staff in this last "reorginization"…hope they learn from their mistakes.

that's actually the part of the bike that i'm least confident about. if you can ever get a hold of individual frame pics, you'll notice that the pivot and bb area is just a web of metal. it's a very important part of the bike because it handles very heavy loads. i hope MC did their homework so that nobody has to worry about that section.
