I liked the PB version a bit better, funny stuff!

They're calling it 'Freedom Linkage,' and Montague said that the name is both a nod to their American-made ethos, as well as how their bikes are ''free from the bullshit. Our suspension designs are incredibly refined, without being complicated or gimmicky.''
Why the change in design? ''Marketing, mostly,'

Incredibly refined, free from BS, but changed because of "marketing" aka "bullshit". Hahahaha!
Couldn't make this stuff up, but I guess weed is legal in Colorado...

Any rider safety issues mentioned?

Or if you snap your neck do you still have to hope for some go-fund-me love and the generosity of friends/strangers?

Red Bull has tons of cash to include a nice athlete insurance policy for this event and others like it....

Don't forget the angles as well. The Breezer has some dated angles thanks to Joe Breeze.
He is a good guy, but not exactly on the same page as modern trail bike geo.

This one is more slackerer which means more betterer!

"coming it at 507g with a 32t direct mount ring. This compared to the other offerings on the market is very competitive, coming in roughly 40g lighter than another key manufacturer's carbon crank"

Really?? More like 60 grams heavier than the benchmark!




Better options abound....
