I'm really loking forward to it, but come on, I'm sure there is a lot of lurkers like me that really need to know more about the new geo, in wich state of development it is and some estimated dates when it will be available. Just to create some hype and keep the excitement high until we can ride it you know? thank you very much :D

Anyone know if they upgraded the seatpost to a more contemporary diameter. And when will we see these things?

bummer. That was the deciding factor between the 456 and a blue pig (which CRC is painfully slow in getting)

what would be recommended frame size for a person with:
slightly above 6"; inside leg 34 1/4"; apelike long arms.

Fork will be a 120 mm for the time being. Intended usage are trails and relaxed all mountain tours; no freeride, jumping, etc.

Looks a bit I'm somehow between 18 and 20". Regarding the frame length I'd prefer the 20" size, but I'm wondering if the stand-over height might then be a bit too much for my size.

hey brant im 6'2" what size would you say would suit me mate? prob going to get the bundle with the rockshox rev,cheers
If you want to ride with saddle at xc height then you probably need to go to 20in. The seat tube is 18in or 20in centre to top (top of seat tube, not top tube) so easy to check on your current bike.

That package now discontinued as we cleared the pedals out yesterday. But we will revise it down without them.

another question mate,on the spec for the frame it say's the headset is 1.125 ec34,but the bundle say's the headset is a 1.1/8? i haven't been riding much in the past 10yrs so all the headset stuff is a bit confusing,or am i just stoopid?
p.s while i'm here might as well confirm BB is 73mm right?
p.p.s would a marzocchi 66VF2 be o.k with said frame?
cheers

EC34 = 1.125in standard.
73mm BB

66VF2? She's long. 170mm? We only test up to 160mm, but I'm sure it's fine.
