Fabien Cousinie's Morewood 4X Prototype Full Suspension Bike - scott.punt - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

The full squish is Fabien's cross between a Morewood Ndiza and a Zula....an Nduzla?...or Zuliza? It's Morewood's new prototype full suspension 4X bike. Hopefully we will be seeing this in production in the near future, but as of now its just a prototype. 

It's nimble like the Ndiza but light like the Zula. Although similar to the Zula it has been beefed up and gets a tapered headtube.

    These need to change from proto to production. I rode the last years Zuliza: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5205/5330183087_c6bcc2fa5c_o.jpg It was sick.
