Nina's V10 had a pretty hard time on that crash, look how the VPP layout let the rear triangle to flip backwards...

I go left as well, but the Sales numbers I could have seen at Syncros told me another story.

I can understand this process.
Compared to that, lowering the center of mass has a huge impact, we never reached the ground plane either with car or bikes so there's room to improve on that.
But it has a very low impact on the sides tho, meaning the center of mass when offseted left or right is still very close to the middleplan so without much effect, unless you ride with rack packs on one side only...
The brakes are on the left side tho, it's already balanced against transmission.

They must have kept their 'left side arm' DNA imo.

So Orbea had the reinforcement tube on the left side on the Rallon (where Specialized has it on the right on the Stumpy) then they switched it to the right blocking the access of the bottle while most of the rider pick it from their right hand...
Weird move from Orbea.

Sweet bike! Can't wait to see geo numbers, pricetags and availabilities later.
I also fully agree that Titanium is far the noblest and durable material for a bicycle.

The Cannondale guys must have been on acid. They cut off a damper where is needed (lefty), and add another where there is no need off. Come on guys, keep on the simple things, the wheel is round, some things don't need to change.

Straight pull spokes on the front for lateral compliance?

Things are a bit more rational /civil on the Vital comment section. Pinkbike bros will be losing their collective sh*t tomorrow once this hits the main page.
