I thought the last photo was a 29er on the right and a 27.5 on the left? :eh:

Cool. They've got rid of all the stuff I didn't like about the older models.
Weird shock leverage rates. Gone.
Weird suspension bearings. Gone.
Funny hunckback frame. Gone.

I wonder what Rod thought about riding them?

So is the Strega the same 170mm as the Nomad?

But never actually makes it clear. So I went to their website. Right there on the opening screen: https://www.julianabicycles.com/en/us

Colour me sexist but the 170mm womans bike is a pretty small market right?

I agree on all points, but the hunchback has been gone for a few years now. Don't like the shorter chainstays though.

The Strega is the exact same frame with different paint, seat, handlebars, grips and shock tune. Any differences you can see in the frames are differences due to sizing.

If the new Shimano quick link (http://www.bikeradar.com/news/article/shimano-quick-link-50061/) didn't blow your fanboi minds then XT flats and Saint clipless just may:

Those XT pedals are ridiculously heavy.

The new Saints look ugly.
XTs look better but still too thick and way heavy.
