It still looks like a horst to me, with the pivot on the chain stay..... but I may have looked at it wrong.Brown_Teeth said:
I wonder if we'll hear in the next year here that spec. has lost their patent on the FSR suspension design....interestingBrown_Teeth said:
Why would Specialized bail on the FSR? Scroll down to the lower pictures. There is clearly a chainstay pivot.Brown_Teeth said:
look like a Fox RP3 or RP23 or whatever? As long as the shock mounts and shock length are such that one could install an off-the-shelf rear shock of one's choice, I wouldn't mind that Spec wants to try making their own shock. It's that inability to use another brand of shock that would chap me. The old Enduro severely limited such a choice.YaZgo said:Kinda cool. I'd be willing to bet that its gonna be godawful expensive. No opinions on the performance of the fork/shock but I would say that Fox is probably gonna be involved in the manufacturing. Perhaps the rocker is due to the carbon not being strong enough to use an interrupted seat tube. Guess we'll see in the coming months...
Oh look! Its a plastic Nomad!k-stein said:Sorry if this has been posted already but it was news to me. Looks as if their going to be jumping into the suspension market as well. :skep:
The curvy tube look is coming into vogue. Witness the Nomad, the Ibis Mojo Carbon and now the new Spesh Enduro among others I've likely forgotten.Go Kart Motzart said:How is it a Nomad knock off? Can all bikes without straight toptubes be traced back to the Nomad?
Can you clarify a bit for me. Not sure what you mean by the rockers being too big for long travel. Don't all of their full suspension bikes need to use rockers to a certain degree?Stalk said:On the sidenote, it's still full blown FSR and it's just funny how some from "S" commented on the interrupted seattube design of the current Enduro vs. Epic, saying rockers will be too big on the long travel bike.
