All I want for my next bike is internal cable routing!


With that Commencal it looks as though it gives a constant rising rate because of the points of leverage, and they're really good for small bumps i've heard. Same idea as Rotec, except not lawhill design.


you are a marketers wet dream

there is nothing that bike can achieve that the old design couldn't, if anything it is more limited due to the length of the links...

The DH stands for the internals i.e. set and forget DH style high speed low speed adjusters, rather than silly platforms/lockouts/2 step etc. On the right bike they'd be rad.
