The changes look a little better and the Argyle (even the 302) is far better. Are they still going to weigh as much as a volkswagon? Are they still going to have odd geometry?

The geo looks pretty much the same to me, same bb hight (I could be wrong)... But the specs, the colours, and the bike as a whole looks great!

Judging a bikes' looks is like picking out the hottest girl at a club... its all in the eye of the beholder (intoxication may have a bit to play in this as well....)

I myself am still an avid p. hater. They ride so poopy

Last P bike I checked out weighed a hair under 97 pounds. I hope they lightened up more than the tires.

Bikes seem to be in a real ugly phase right now. White, fluorescent yellow, and gold??? Wouldn't be so bad without the gold.

It looks like the seat tube has a slight curve twards the bottom. It also looks like the rear wheel can move in a little more, not a bad idea.
Here ya go right off Lee Likes Bikes. :cool:

" - All new geos - 80mm travel
- Shorter rear center (check the curved seat tube)
- Super balanced feel now
- New tires are 400g/wheel lighter than previous "
