Not so clean machine - Prototype Santa Cruz Syndicate V10 Frames - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Unless you have the current design next to the new design, it is hard to see the differences. Aside from the lower link, the upper pivot of the top link is basically on the seat tube now and the monocoque has been shaved away to make room for the shock. Because existing tubing and pieces were used, you’ll see that the gusset just to the upper-left of the bottom bracket was “extended” to accomodate the new length shock.
