And finally they've figured out what geometry is, instead of putting down their bingo numbers for the H/A 63-65 in the 8.5 inch setting. 64-66 in the 10 inch setting.

Grammage lost = 900g

2lb weight savings is mental on an already decently light frame. interesting they're using the driver swingarm. does make sense in terms of lowering production costs, as well as durability concerns. great to finally see the geo tweaks [HTML_REMOVED] travel options.

rad, i must say.

cool, almost looks more like a traditional metal framed bike with the straighter and thinner tubes.

Cool bike and it sounds even cooler.
2 year defect and lifetime crash replacement warranty sounds good.

The only thing that sounds a little weird, and I could be reading it wrong, is the way they will do their adjustable geo. It sounds like to get the bike slacker, you will just increase the stack height. Doing it this way, your bars will raise by 40mm(bb will jump slightly too)and if your going for a low bar height this could be bad. You will also need 40mm of extra steertube to go from steep to slack.Curious if SC feels there is an advantage to doing it this way or if they are just trying to do it differently?

it's a full 1.5 so you could run Slackers in it??

oh of course you could, looks to be a standard 1.5

I just wish they did something like the Scott/Commencial/Intense or even better the Mondraker Summum

You'd prefer a bike built by guys who haven't got a clue over a frame that has been in solid R[HTML_REMOVED]D for two years just because it looks good :lol:
