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)

Like any dual-short-link bike in the end. More or less. And just like an Astro

I figured it was a frame only deal of some sort considering all the equipment is hand picked (or in no way, shape or form close to the OEM kit).

Do you maybe know or can share which countries get an XL? I asked on Giant's FB page, but i didn't get a response.

Was it a problem to get? Where are you from?

Talking to dealers, both 1 models (ALU or CF) are not available in XL, at least for about two months now, here in Slovenia. And it's hit and miss on GIant's sites, some countries have the XL geometry listed under the 1 model, while some don't. No problems with the 2 model spec though.

Must be. At 23 mm they are still on the narrow side.

Not a bad idea, if you make a singlepivot frame, weld up the front triangle. Just add another pivot to the seat tube and make it a 4-bar. A good idea production wise.

THe pivot might be in the way of a normal dropper post. You'd need a really short post with only about 75 mm of travel.
