This bike spec confuses me.

Pretty sure it is the old Yeti suspension system that was featured on their bikes around 5-7 years ago before they introduced they infinity system with the sliding piston things, SB66, SB95, etc. If I remember correctly, the designer licensed it to Alchemy or something like...more

That suspension motion reminds me of Yeti. A clever and simple way to achieve what appears to be a similar outcome without infringing. Nice.

Quite a price difference between the GX and XT builds though, considering the only apparent difference is the drivetrain.

I am confused, first you say the suspension design with the traditional geometry makes this bike shine and after you say it has a dated geometry? One thing I really like in VitalMTB is that there are no typos.

I'd imagine it will, but it's unlikely to fit the Z2 or Rhythm forks. Hopefully it's long enough to still use the 150mm and 160mm air shafts.

Did something change about the EVOL air spring, or is it the same?

Definitely bummed to not see air bleeders and a...more

By the looks of it, it has a sprung centre to (partially) isolate the hub from the crank to achieve the stated goal of reducing kickback, but it can't change the engagement behaviour of the hub. Sometimes it might engage more quickly due to the position of the spider, but equally sometimes it might engage more slowly.

Marino Taste the Rainbow

Shimano XT is understandable, but no commitment to the theme with SRAM rainbow cassette and chain? The port and starboard grips are great.

Bit heavy though

Edward Master indeed!

Edit: also, timing error on the final stage in the men's elite? It was apparently won by a massive 16 seconds by someone who was placing consistently in the 50s/60s all event and then somehow recorded a DNF.

In 2019 the CF7 was XT and the CF8 was GX. Now it's the other way around. Was gibt?

I dug around a bit and found the Ransom Contessa uses a custom tune on the suspension, women's saddle, and comes with a smaller (30T) chainring. Frame geo appears to be the same though.

Are these just a different paint job or what? More details Scott!
