To add fuel the the Athertons on Marin fire, Marin just looked to have dropped an enduro with the exact same rear triangle/linkage as the polygon. We already knew Marin owned polygon so nothing new there but confirming they are happy to basically recycle bikes from one to another should be a good indicator the DH bike will probly be next and just need a team to ride it.

It's the other way around with Polygon being the owner of Marin the bike dropped over a year ago:

Polygon and Marin both launched this bike years ago!

Best (or worst) prediction for 2019: Athertons on Marin Xquare one clone with Trust the DH prototype fork, the ugliest bike the world has ever seen, Gee and Rach win all races by margins even Vali cant reach in junior women, the world burns.

Graham Agassiz spotted on the same flight as Jeff Kendal-weed! Best bet that he is going down to santa cruz to his next brand.

It would be about time that they made a DH bike.

That is definitely Reece Wilson in the back. I guess this proves what we already knew.

Baptiste Pierron has hidden his bike, but we already know that he is in Sram-Rockshox, and it looks like a Commencal...

Brendog’s bike look like a V10...

Fairclough is still riding in Scott clothing. I wonder if they’ve changed the design of the Gambler as that one he’s flipping looks nothing like the current model.

Heard from a source that it's the carbon version of the proto they were running last season, available to the public shortly

From what you can make out from the flipping photo, the top tube angle looks incredibly steep compared to the proto Gamblers we seen last season. Anyone know what happened with Bos? Looks like he’s back on Fox this season.

You have to remember they were using the 2017 front triangle on the proto so I can only imagine that will be changed but the overall design is definitely how the proto was

If you zoom in the picture of Pierron, you will read Mondraker

Brendan is wearing TLD Scott gear.

That looks like an old World Champs jersey... he has been on Mondraker for the last few years and it has been stated several times in this thread that he is moving to a new bike sponsor.

Yeah, there are plenty of pictures of him riding in that jersey from last season.

Hopefully, nobody in here is actually a detective for their job haha
