Best bike ever just got better

The "floaty" bit hardly matters as far as kinematics go. And the trek was a linkage driven single pivot. This is indeed just another horst-link bike.

What kit and frame are you getting with the Smuggler for $3400? I personally would go for the Smuggler. The fork/dropper (either of them) will be adequate to get you rolling. It's far easy to trade up for better parts than it is to be stuck with a frame ... more ยป

Yes, the big blue meanie finally showed up to the party. They still have a long way to go as few are cough up XTR pricing to switch and obviously this stuff will only be spec'd on halo level bikes (nice Evil, BTW) until we see it trickle down to XT/SLX.

The Airliner looks like a really promising take on a tire insert. Will Vital be testing it sometime this summer? It would be great to hear how it stacks up against Cush Core. What is the weight on an enduro sized (2.3"-2.5") insert?

The first time I rode a Z1 and my hands weren't numb 10 minutes into the ride and it felt like my hardtail had full suspension, I fell in love with that coil bath beast.
