Fanny/back pack hybrid... I guess that's one way to eventually make fanny/hip/lumbar packs acceptable.

What's Shimano not doing right, that makes others try and put out a competing product? For some reason I want to say I'd take a Deore over this.

The driveside load-bearing cartridge bearing looks like it's practically in the center of the axle. That conical lip on the freehub body looks like it might make the freehub bearings carry some load too though, to keep the axle straight.

Thought this was a women's bike at first glance.

I don't understand how the shock works well being compressed at that angle; I imagine it suffers from bushing bind and accelerated wear (both leading to poor bump sensitivity). Looking at the fork, I know it can't be that bad, but when there's room to make it better, why not?

I count at least 7 different colored anodized metallic bits in the rear suspension, including the dropouts and shock.

Been lusting over this bike for a while. Saving up pennies, waiting for a color scheme that I like, but it looks like the YT Capra Comp is gonna take my savings at this rate.

Add some rocket boosters and I can imagine Batman doing some extreme urban DH in Gotham with this.

They're just a borrowing from SC's carbon knowledge, I'd guess. They're still using the old swingarm for the Spider 29 Comp. Less small parts like the dropouts and the lugs they bond in for the upper shock mount might make it easier to produce. SC followed an even lighter route, doing without the drive side strut. Intense diversifies, slotting in between SC models (this above the TB LTc, and the Spider 29 Comp in between the TB and TB LTc) with internal routing, PF92, DM FD, longer and slacker geo, more tube shaping, heavier duty construction, and making room for a bottle (compromising a bit with the suspension).

Good read!

I'm going to borrow that squirrel excuse, using it liberally for the next few years to explain why I'm not as fast as another down the same line. If anyone asks why I keep using that excuse, I'll refer them to you, Jared.
