    @ Kusa: to make the travel more progressive for a change

    Orange is def. not known for being trendy. From what I've heard the new shock and pivot locations yield the performance they were looking for without going to the linkage setup they've been trying the past few years.

    It would be really interesting if they gain anything instead of just a trendy look (i like it anyway). I mean is there any info why they make it this way instead of typical shock mounts on lower tube?
