Do you know why landon designed it around that size? It looks like it would have clearance for a 7.5x2 or something. A bigger shock like that seems like it would make more sense because of the lower leverage ratio, extra shock options, and no real weight increase.

7.5" x 2" would give it a 2 to 1 ratio, that's no good. It would be far too over-damped.
6.5" x 1.5" gives it less than 3 to 1, which is just right.

Wow

Looks good except it's going to have some serious feedback issues with that really high forward pivot. Should be a snappy peddaler though.

Hey Twisted,

Looks like a fun bike, but I am still holding out for an Internal Transmission MC. Should I at least be optimistic?

The new 9.5 SL won't be made available to the public for a little while. We still have some more testing left to do to be sure it is both strong as possible and as light as we feel is safe.

You could probably just get the ti bolts, lighter linkage, and dhx air and accomplish almost the same thing, but still have the stronger version of the frame

i've been kickin the ball around about getting either a VP-Free, a Dirtbag, or one of the MC bikes (DNA or a Sin) and have been wondering what a moderately built DNA or Sin would weigh in at... i think the DNA is more what i'm looking for since i still need it to be able to climb with it (unless a Sin can climb well...)

any input???
