    "...High pivot design with idler ..."
    interesting little detail there for a mid-travel bike.

    like other bikes w/ idlers (bb7, jedi, superco silencer, etc...), it's a great way to optimize the rear's suspension pivot, while isolating axle path from pedaling input (and vice versa). too bad pics don't show the drive side idler pulley.

    hope swarf executes this well, without similar problems other companies had (corsair maelstrom/marque???)

    Love the steel tubing in the front triangle. Strange they would reduce the shock's air volume with spacers in a high volume can. Why not just use a standard can?

    I'm thinking they reduced the air volume to somewhere in between the volume of the large and small air cans.

    Like the Geometry and Wheels/Adjustment-Options. Steel Front and Carbon Rear sounds really interesting, plus british Craftmanship, which I´m very much fan of.
    All in all a really hot Trail-Shredder up to my taste, although I´m heavily in love with my Spitfire, which is the Mother of that Type of Bike.
