Update: Spawn Yama Jama 24"

1- Rockshox Reba 26" 100mm (20mm more travel here and looks like it slackened the HTA out to 67 I'm guessing from the pics. It looks different and taller, stack looks high. Def like the black stantions tho.

2- 11sp NX drivetrain - black cassette looks nice
3- 145mm Brood Cranks - there is even a funny comment about "yes, we updated these based on your feedback".

This is nice because for the money, it wasn't super competitive with the limited 11-36 10sp and long cranks etc. This def fixes some/all of that. Nice bike!

Only able to see it on Canadian site:

Looks like a solid makeover. The XFusion shock is already pretty damn excellent. Better than the stock Trailcraft shock for sure. I'd argue 100mm is too much travel for such a small bike in a hard tail form. I would imagine the fork dive might get excessive.

Definitely a solid refresh. Hard to tell just looking at a photo whether the stack really is huge or if the seat tube is just super short.
I was seeing the same thing. Looks like head tube went tapered, which increased head tube length by looking at the pics in order to clear the tapered part of the fork steerer.

The new 100mm 26" Rock Shox fork is at least 20mm taller than the older 80mm X-Fusion 26" fork as well.

So the front end of this new bike is likely 40mm taller, which could be good or bad depending on intended application. That's a lot of saddle to bar variance. Almost need to bring the front end down with a flat bar or something for smaller riders I would think.
