Well.
Next year will see the advent of one completely new chassis and one revamp.
The Mach V series will be all new with 3 piece bonded cast magnesium lowers, MCU springs (coil spring retrofits coming) and an oil damped cartridge built into the lower leg. Three models, the Comp, the Pro and the SX culminating in 63mm of travel and maximum stiffness across the brake posts.

The EFC is revamped for this year with a larger diameter damper, coil spring retrofit and an optional DH model featuring an huge 12mm through axle with dedicated Ringle hub.


Dougal needs more shouty shouty, like this guy.

If you shout, it makes it more believable.

These are heading in completely the wrong direction for unsprung weight and central weight distribution.

May as well bolt a Rohloff to the back.

Do you think you'd notice an extra 65g of weight?

Shit yeah, it's great how you can just buy an off-the-shelf cassette to go with your off-the-shelf derailleur and know it'll work perfectly through the whole range of gears you want.


...Yeah, still rocking the front mounted range extender. FroMReX FTW!

Think of all the extra weight you can hang off your rear wheel instead of frame mounted!

Do the extra pies I have on board count as frame mounted? :paranoid:

New Xt 11sp pricing is in. Seems well priced and cheaper than a 42t conversion..

Looks like someone got a bunch of plastic triangles and cylinders then attacked them with a heat gun.

I agree with the whole "this aero thing gas to stop". Shit just looks ugly.
