Does anybody know when the '07s will be hitting the stores? Any geometry changes?

Also, what are the expected changes to the 7points...I have heard different pivots and links???

Thnaks in advance

On this subject, I would just like confirmation on the 2007 geometry for the MKIII. I know the head angle is slackening out slightly, just want to confirm that top tube length and seat angle will stay the same before I get my new frame on order!

I will be changing my frame for next year. I'm currently reading about pretty much all 5-6" bikes on the market. Therefore I'm also interested to know a bit more about changes on the MkIII for 2007.

Unless I'm mistaken what I remember reading is the HA 0.5deg slacker, shaved 1lbs(?) from the frame and the shock will be very "foxy".

Now, since I'm planning to only change my frame (w/ shock) any chances to buy the frame only?

I'm coming another ride yesterday where climbing efficiency was a must. Therefore I'm very happy with the DW-Link design. So I'm partial on getting another MkIII yet I also have that feeling of trying something different.

Weight???

Does anybody know if the 7points and Sundays are getting lighter in weights too for 2007? Would somebody please say what are their current 06 bike weights anyways?

Thanks

I imagine we are going to have to wait for Interbike for any substantial intel.
