the high bb thing almost makes one wonder if the bike was originally designed to be a 130/140mm bike, then marketing got involved and said "we must have a long travel carbon enduro bike! i know, let's just put a longer shock in there."

then all the engineers secretly shook their heads in the corner.

Ok seriously, how are manufacturers still spec'ing bikes with long stems and narrow bars?! Almost every review I have read in the past four-ish years has stated something to the effect of: "we switched out the bar and stem immediately because they did not suit the bikes capability"....more

"notable sources have set the M6 as the benchmark in the enduro / trail category." consider your sources. have you seen those guys ride? have they ever raced an enduro event? where did they test the bike?

imo enduro & trail are not the same thing. one is a race and the other is just riding. different demands for each. i doubt one bike can be the supposed benchmark for both.

you know that all black rockshox monarch+ rear shock we've been seeing recently on pro bikes? I was browsing new shocks on the adrenaline bikes site when I found this. Looks like a new air can and more. could be good when you don't need a vivid air but

check out these new brakes. they use the same caliper as the current trail brakes but have a new lever and new rotors. looks like easier to adjust pad contact too. With Family Guide, SRAM has brakes designed for a rather versatile use of cross-country

also a new brake rotor and an all black monarch shock in that photo. hans dampf tires aren't exactly "xc". maybe it's light duty trail as well. is that a specialized camber?
