That's what i'm thinking about, plus the fact that it can get snagged and be opened in a crash. Granted, with through axles (and RWS even more) this is less of a problem than with QRs, which could be dangerous while open.

I run and have always ran mine full rearwards, except when i had shimano skewers. These prevent you from running them rearwards, forwards is the only option...

8 if i'm being pedantic, though it is true it'd be harder to shear off the ones at the crank arm than the ones on the outside.

Why do people constantly close their rear lever facing forwards?? Am i the only one that finds this completely unnatural?

Any geo numbers? In 2015 they were HORRIBLE, like looking at a bike from 2005, not 2015.

It's almost the end of 2015, does a 'FEA optimised frame' really need to be listed as a feature? Or is the state of cycling industry REALLY that bad in the niche brand space that FEA makes it on the feature list?

Picture 43, it's Žiga (or at least Ziga), not Zigur...

Thanks, glad to hear that. I bought the 1 model, that has them as stock and i was dead set to order a different set with Flow EX rims. I received the bike before i ordered them and i just couldn't look at it at home, it begged to be ridden.

They are seriously light though!

BTW, seeing you went with these wheels, Guide brakes and a 1x11 drivetrain, why didn't you just get the orange Reign 1 model that has all of that as stock? Was it unavailable? Is this an XL perhaps?

See the new pics, the shock is actually not actuated from both sides, just mounted to the pivot axle with it's bottom eyelet. So, still similar (or the same)?

Just because two companies reach a similar conclusion through there development stage the products are the same? The pivot placements are completely different for a start. The link lengths and shapes are too. Only the general layout is similar, but trek uses a full floater just as well, like you pointed out. So they don't need a hole in the seat tube, the general design is still similar then. By your logic you could say the sunn is the same as treks... Stretching the logic here, but that's exactly my point.

As for the geometry, sure, they will be close, like any other 160 mm bike out there. See where I'm going? Unless two bikes have exactly the same pivot placement and/or link shape, they are not the same. And any serious bike company will do their own design, because they are driven by their engineers opinions and the need to differentiate on the market. If you want to fill the space on the world's market, you can easily buy astro frames

'Same, same, same', when in fact it's quite different. On the other hand, all the bikes are 'the same'. It's just how extreme you go with the comparisons.

As for the 'prototype', it's not even P of a prototype, it's some designer's wet dream, that wouldn't ever work in real life. Those chainstays for example are wha, 500 mm long? It's a truck, not a bike.

What does the snake bike metric mean?!? o.O

Damn marketers, throwing up numbers in the hope of confusing people. We shall not be deterred! We want an explanation! (well, i do at least)
