I have seen alot of pictures of the new IH horse DH bike with the Weagle links, seems to look very sweet. I heard they are runnin less than 300lb springs cause the suspension is so plush and unaffected by rider torque on drops. Looks sweet and all, but i hear of a FR model too with alittle less travel. I have 1 IH now as a medium bike, the thing is unstopable, and the price was crazy! Now im lookn for a replacement for next year, any news or word, pics? thanx. oh, just put in a vote, no explanations- VP Free with superX FR, or RMX team

I haven't heard about a freeride model, but I doubt I would be the first to know.
I vote VP-Free.
If you don't want an explanation, don't read anymore (sorry for being a jackass, but I just can't stand to vote without saying why):
I have briefly ridden both, and I found that the VP-Free weighs less, rides "lighter", and pedals better, and although I didn't get to ride either on DH trails, the VP-Free seemed like it would be equally capable of rough descents, if not more so, and way more fun to jump.

do a search...ive been posting stuff on the DWs for ages...

and i also know most things about the new DWs seems as i asked the right person at the right time but im afraid i wont disclose any info on what i know...email and ironhorse dealer close to u and if ur nice to em than theyll hook u up with some info...

(ridemonkey has info on em...ull have to search for it...and the FR model will be much the same but with 7" instead of 8")
