Fair enough. bikes with horst link suspension are becoming ubiquitous but i can't think of any other bike companies using a horst link design with a shock floating on the chain stay. It doesn't even wrap around the seat tube like trek's "full floater". It uses an interrupted seat tube design just like a vitus. I mean come on, that a whole lot of same to me. What am i missing? Tell me all the ways those bikes are different? HT angles are probably within 1 degree of each other (though we have no info on that yet). I'm willing to bet the chains stays lengths and top tube lengths are within 10mm of each other. What does that leave? Leverage curves? paint color?

"Damm Sunn. Where'd you find this."

This suspension design looks an awful lot like the vitus sommet. Same horst link suspension. Same interrupted seat tube design allowing the shock to float between the rocker and chainstay.

Probably a good thing. Thank god this doesn't look anything like the prototype.

God damn, look at how quickly the times open up on the women's sheet. 8th is already 3 mins back? On the men's side you have to go down to 52nd before they're are a minute back. I know its practice and people are stopping and sessioning section but if that is equally true for men and women then why is the spread to huge in the women's times? Not raggin on the girls (i know that they would all wipe the floor with me) but genuinely curious. What explains this statistical anomaly. Will definitely be looking a the quali times to see if persists.

"The knob allows the rider to adjust the compression of the oil."

Yep, that's totally correct.

After thinking a little more about it, if this thing actually works as advertized, then i will absolutely buy this even on my own. As long as this gives me data sheets along with the idiot proof instructions, i am torqued on this idea.

I might try to go in on this with some riding buddies. Its a lot though for a 1 use per bike sort of thing but would be worth it if you tuned you and your friends' bikes.

Is this common? It's the first time I've seen it but i don't play very close attention by any means. Other examples?

Hmmm i didn't realize anyone had Fox and SRAM sponsorships. Anyone know what the arrangment is? The Team run's SRAM drivertrain/stoppers but riders get thier own sus sponsors? Or is this just cuz Gwin is the man and he can run what the huck he damn well please.

And here we have a rare almost extinct specimen, the triple ring hardtail 29r in its natural habitat.

JK, its good to see some diversity in BoD, not just enduro bikes.

Amazing how much creativity is poured into a market that only exists because SRAM and Shimano won't make affordable 1X wide range drivetrains (SRAM's new GX 1 by drivetrain is def more affordable at ~$500 but you can pick up an slx 2x10 drivetrain for under 300 so we are still not there yet)

so youve used them both and done life testing in comparison to their OEM counterparts already?

Crank arms, suspension linkages, qr levers, stem face plates, caliper bodies, rotor spiders, fork crowns, v brake, trigger shiftter lever, read dropout, i think some hydro brake lever bodies. Damn

surprised this shock doesn't have optimized can shaping. It seems like the trend with rock shox making the DebonAir can, Vorsprung making an aftermarket can for Fox floats (and fox likely to announce an optimized can in 2016). With DVO being a high end sus manufacturer i would have thought their cans would come stock with it. I guess its still a proto, but still.
