the asymemetrical stays are a lift from a Cake? Oh... wow, i had never thought of it that way. What year did the Cake come out again? I don't remember off the top of my head.donboyfisher said:dj,
explain where the frame is ripping off a Kona please?
unsymmetrical chain stays are a lift from the Cake, and the linkage a modified fuel which has been around for ages.
There are only so many ways that you can linkage suspension and there is nothing too special about Kona to set themselves apart either. . . . at the end of the day its a single pivot like Kona, a design which manyother brands had done before Kona too.
Get over it.
I would normally agree with you, and that's why this is so surprising, and a little funny.TrekFan said:listen mate, don't mean to be rude or start trouble, but i hardly think companies as large and powerful (and with HUGE r&d budgets) as the treks, giants, specializeds, etc. of the world are looking at bit players like kona for inspiration in frame technology...
The Kona Stinky's are a Turner rip-off.djcrb9 said:the asymemetrical stays are a lift from a Cake? Oh... wow, i had never thought of it that way. What year did the Cake come out again? I don't remember off the top of my head.
What year did the Stinky come out? 1998? Weird. So that would make the Cake just a lift from the... No wait, that's just crazy!
The Race Day 29ers are slated to be speced with the existing 29er Rebas.Krause said:Diddnt see it mentioned, but will the Fisher Race Day FS 29'r also use G2 (like the non 29 inch version) and have a custom manitou fork (they only mentioned 2 forks and i dont theink either was a 29 inch one)
Thats kind of odd, that would mean their usin recycled 06 29er frames or they are losing the whole point of the new geomitry since they said that you could put a normal fork on the G2 geomitry bikes (talkin about 26ers) but it would negate the gain from the new design :/Nater said:The Race Day 29ers are slated to be speced with the existing 29er Rebas.
